Our 7 favourite sexy short hair styles
1. Whimsical carefree bob
When it comes to date night, we reckon short, sassy haircuts are the way forward, instantly injecting plenty of movement into your mane – not to mention tonnes of attitude.
Also, an easy way to work a high-impact, carefree and whimsical look, is to rock wind-swept hair (AKA one of our fave sexy short hairstyles ever!).
This undone look can be achieved in a matter of minutes, simply by blow-drying your hair and spritzing your mane with plenty of Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray. Nothing says sexy hair better than tousled, textured locks.
2. Wavy lob
Don’t be fooled into thinking short sexy hairstyles take an age to create: they are actually super simple. Subtle waves are proving a huge hit this season, making a great way to bring your bob or lob to life!
Chic, stylish, and super-feminine, a wavy lob (AKA long bob) will instantly inject a healthy dose of romance, volume, and movement into your locks.
3. Short and choppy
Short, sexy hair looks come and go, but one that seems to rule supreme season after season is the cropped pixie cut! The pixie cut is renowned for accentuating your core facial features, drawing attention to your eyes and cheekbones.
A textured pixie not only looks effortlessly cool, it’s also the ultimate feminine haircut that’s just perfect for complementing heart-shaped faces. And with dishevelled, short choppy locks being huge this season, you’ll have a super on-trend ‘do to impress your date!
4. Messy fringe
If you’re looking to give your style a cool-girl update, then you should seriously consider rocking some beautiful bangs! Worked by A-list celebs such as Karlie Kloss, Lily Collins, and Alexa Chung, an undone and relaxed-looking fringe looks great with a wide range of short, forward-thinking cuts.
And if full-on bangs are too extreme for your taste, then a side-swept fringe is a simple way to give your look some extra va va voom!
5. Layered shoulder-length hair
If it’s a contemporary and sultry look you’re after, then why not try working some layers into your mane? Layered, shoulder-length hair instantly oozes sex appeal, especially when you add in plenty of extra volume and texture.
To put some extra oomph into your tresses, we’d recommend lifting your roots when you blowdry your hair, as this will give your date night ‘do an ultra-glamorous edge.
6. A curly bob
Ultra-glamorous and super-stylish, a curly bob simply radiates red carpet luxe. And when you’ve got a night out on the town, this ‘do is a surefire way to have all attention firmly fixed on you.
7. Natural curls
It’s time to loosen up and embrace the natural texture of your hair! You know what they say, confidence is key – and we happen to think that confidence is super sexy! So, instead of shying away and straightening your tresses, you need to love every curl, kink, and coil on top of your head.
And if you’re worried about your mane overpowering your facial features, don’t fret: all you need to do is get yourself a shoulder-length cut, to help your curls frame your beautiful face.
Editor’s tip: The unique structure of curly hair makes it prone to dryness, so remember to prep your mane using the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil, to keep your curls looking cute and moisturised.
