Believe us, with a few tweaks here and there, you’ll be sporting the hottest and most fun hairstyle on the block. Keep reading for a some of the many choices in haircuts for short hair.
We’ll start from the shoulders and work our way up.
If you want to keep decent length but, still want hair considered short, go for a shaggy, chin-length haircut. This will allow thick hair to look thinner, while giving movement and flow to an otherwise flat mane. If you have thin hair stay away from the layered cut. It will only make you wish you’d listened to us in the first place.
If you’re willing to play around a little, go for a bob. This haircut is easy to grow out and allows for tons of styling options. A bob is our signature cut and we love personalizing it for our customers. You can angle it softly for an A-line bob or drastically for an Angled bob. You can go for a 1920′s bob with a super short A-line bob or leave it a little longer and have an even line throughout, making it a short, blunt bob. Another bob option is to have a piecey, layered short bob, with or without bangs, depending on your face shape.
That’s not to say these are the only options, just the most popular.
Last, we’ll talk about a few pixie cuts. The pixie, like the bob, has many versions and what one considers a pixie may not be another’s idea of it. There are different lengths, textures and dimensions to the pixie cut, which make it highly customizable.
The main feature is the high level of texture, meaning it has a sort of choppy, carefree, almost unkempt nature. That does not mean it can’t look clean, but it is meant to look less clean-cut than a typical male’s haircut. This is the big difference between a man’s cut and a pixie.
Pixie cuts are very feminine and can have many variations to suit your face type.
The longer pixie is what Ashlee Simpson in sporting in this picture. It is almost like a bob that went too short. We see key characteristics of the pixie here, like longer sideburns, side-swept bangs and a close-cropped back.
Going shorter, you’d get what Shannyn Sossamon had a while back. Longer in the front, and shorter than Miss Simpson’s, but still long and shaggy by the usual pixie’s standards.
We also have the classic pixie, which is a tie between Halle Berry and Jamie Lee Curtis. The former, longer on top, close cropped to the sides and in the back. The latter, short all over.
If you want something edgy, go for a cut like Ginnifer Goodwin’s. Close-cropped on the sides and back, very long and texturized on top. Gives it a very avante garde, punk rock feel without losing that girly touch.
