Women with short hair don’t have to settle for just a handful of styles – with proper styling techniques, even super-fast types can look unique and flattering. Consult your stylist about creating long or short layers that add texture and movement to a pixie cut, then style your locks wavy or with texturizing wax, smoothing cream, or serum for maximum effect.
The classic bob haircut is an ever-reliable classic that suits women from every background and experience – from those looking for classic simplicity to bold trendsetters. Its volume-boosting benefits make it an excellent option for fine-haired individuals looking for volume without adding bulkiness. Ask your stylist to cut it one to two inches above your chin for an attractive and feminine look. Or, for something different, try a chin-length layered bob with bangs – this style works wonders on all face shapes but is incredibly flattering when worn by those with round face structures. This short bob features soft, textured layers to form an intriguing dome shape. It looks great worn with either side parts or up-dos and can be worn to casual events and evening parties.
A lob, or short for long bob, is ideal for anyone who’s taken the plunge but needs more time to be ready for a pixie cut. It is stylish, and its effortless grow-out phase means it works with any hair texture! For an elegant style, opt for a straight lob with a center side part and add texture with Sachajuan hair powder ($44). Tonged your locks for beachier texture or let its natural waveform loose to achieve an undone, natural wavy style. Blunt bobs can be soft and feminine, as Rosamund Pike’s delicately curled length shows. Priyanka Chopra’s textured lob is also superb for those with wavy or textured locks; her deep side part adds drama. To make your job even more captivating, try running blonde balayage through it for extra dimension!
A simple short hairstyle with side-swept bangs is an elegant and beautiful way for women who wish to appear more stylish and modern. Perfect for wear during the fall and winter seasons, this look pairs well with many outfits – particularly those in their 20s. Add elegance and femininity to your medium-length haircut by opting for long side-swept bangs. They frame your face while emphasizing any features you want to highlight, adding drama to your overall look. Furthermore, this hairstyle allows you to style it on your mood; simply slick, part, or spike as needed – giving you plenty of ways to experiment before finding the right look!
A modern and sophisticated pixie cut with close-cropped sides can look stylish and sophisticated for natural curls. Add face-framing tendrils for an eye-catching accent of flirtiness. Even if your hair is naturally straight, a short, layered bob can still make a statement! Accessorize with an angled fringe for a face-framing effect and caramel highlights for an irresistibly luxurious style. Give your short bob a dramatic upgrade by adding a dark maroon hue with shattered curls for an eye-catching contrasty style. Pair this look with either low or high fade for added visual impact; pair this look with round or triangular face shapes, which look especially great! A shaved neckline adds another pop of style.
Messy and Undone
The messy look is an iconic, timeless style that never goes out of fashion. Keep it classic with a brushed-back chop or go for something more daring with a side-parted pixie and fringe; adding pearls or barrettes will elevate the style even more. If you want a more textured updo, smooth your hair back into a loose knot and add barrettes for an easy yet stylish look that works for casual and dressier occasions. This style also adds volume and texture to short styles!
