Celebrate your short hair with these short hairstyles we picked specifically for Filipinas and their lifestyles!
With things to check off the daily to-do list and places to get to throughout the traffic-driven day, short hairstyles are perfect for Filipinas constantly on-the-go. Going short might be a risk for many, especially those blessed with fine, long hair, but it can also be liberating and it can really change your look. Of course, it will grow back, so no need to worry. But we understand if you need a little nudge. (Read: Cutting your hair short: Are you really ready?) So, here’s a list of short hairstyles for Filipinas to inspire your next haircut!
9 Short hairstyles for Filipinas
1. Natural Pixie
This boy cut gets a feminine touch with its soft, side-swept head of bangs. Taper the lengths towards the nape, but keep it full and voluminous towards the top. Allow some strands to fall and touch your ears and cover the top of your eyebrows.
Editor’s Tip: Wash your hair with Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo to make sure it gets stronger and stays deeply nourished as it grows.
2. Blunt layered bob
Let your hair fall on your eyebrows and your hair, but let this blunt bob frame your look. The abrupt lengths and straight cut will give your pixie-bob a unique touch. Bonus tip: If you have a heart-shaped face, this would work perfectly for you!
3. Sleek shag
We love shags! Something about shag haircuts rebels against the common hairstyle sensibility, and we think it ranks among the top of the list of short hairstyles for Filipinas. They veer away from the usual, flat straight hairstyle and gives your hair some unusual texture — while being easy to maintain!
Editor’s Tip: Of course, making hair manageable and easy to style is something conditioner can help you with. Try the Sunsilk Strong & Long Conditioner to go with the shampoo while you’re trying new short hairstyles. At least you’ll be assured your hair will grow out!
4. Mod Top
Give this chic, retro hairstyle a try and it will definitely get heads turning (and blow up your Instagram). Channel the sophistication of Twiggy in this mod top. The long-ish pixie features wispy bangs and soft texture as it frames your face.
5. Crop top
Go short with cropped hair, but balance it out with some length at the front and top to give it movement. This ensures it doesn’t just fall flat and volume-less on your head.
Editor’s Tip: Speaking of volume, pump it up for special days when you’re going from day to night. Most of the time, Filipinas don’t get a chance to go home before an after-work event. Prep your hair with a bottle of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse and apply to your strands to give it some body and bounce.
6. Shaggy pixie
Put two short hairstyles together for fun and experimentation. But we’ll put you at ease and give you this shaggy pixie to think about. Short, choppy, full of texture, this hairstyle works for Filipinas who have played around with a bunch of looks and still want to step it up!
Editor’s Tip: To achieve those defined textures on the short strands, apply some TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray while you’re styling. For longer hair, it can give beachy waves; for short, it can hold seemingly random movement in place to give your short hairstyle some definition.
7. Bun + Undercut
In the spirit of combining hairstyles, why not try this traditional bun and unconventional shaved undercut? It’s sure to give an edge to your look. Perfect for sporty and fitness-loving girls, you can untie the bun for more corporate and professional affairs.
8. Bob with bangs
The classic bob — what could go wrong with it? Nothing, really, and it suits a number of face shapes that are typical of Filipinas. But just because it’s common, doesn’t mean you should opt out. It only means you’ll have even more ways to style it. Plus, you’ll be surprised at how keeping your hair healthy and strong will literally go a long way.
Editor’s Tip: Keep the frizz at bay and keep the focus on the healthy shine of your hair. Apply some TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops before stepping out for your day.
9. Side-swept lob
Last but not the least: the lob. The long bob is another classic we couldn’t leave out of this list. With a side-swept style that you can keep in place with a pin or accessory, the lob will suit Filipinas with both active and professional lifestyles with no worry.
