When it comes to super short haircuts, the pixie really makes a statement while retaining a touch of femininity.

2. Pixie with an undercut

This undercut pixie looks fresh, modern and effortlessly cool. It’s best for heart and oval-shaped faces, and it looks great with both straight and wavy hair.

3. Parted pixie

Just ask your stylist for shorter (or even shaved) sides and back, with a bit more length on top. Then feel free to experiment with colours, textures and partings to complement your signature style or suit your mood.

4. The ‘styled’ pixie

Like most very short haircuts for women, the key to this look is the way you style it. When drying your hair, use a flat brush to keep it smooth before applying the VO5 Wet Look Styling Gel for a sleek stylish look.


Editor’s tip: Want something a little more relaxed? Apply the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray to dry hair working from the back of the head to the front to add lived-in texture.

5. Curly top

Contrary to popular belief, very short hairstyles for women can be soft and vibrant, with plenty of texture. This one combines a curly top with a short, faded cut to create an ultra-cool and incredibly feminine look, and offers plenty of room to inject some sass and personality to your style.

6. Cute and curly

Make your short and curly crop look its best by asking your stylist to add a bold colour or soft, subtle highlights. And don’t forget to keep your curly moisturised with hair oil, like the Dove Advanced Hair Series  Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment.

7. Classic buzz cut

Ok, although this style is often considered a man’s haircut, the buzz cut can look great on women, too.

8. Bold buzz cut

A strong, powerful and independent style, the buzz cut will enhance your best facial features and give your look a cool, contemporary edge. Did we mention that it’s also incredibly easy to maintain? No more hours spent styling your hair in the morning!

9. Blonde buzz cut

Although this look leaves you with very little hair to play with, there is still plenty of room to inject personality by adding some colour. A bleach blonde buzz cut can look absolutely beautiful, for example.

Once reserved for children who had fallen victim to their mum’s home-made haircuts, the rise of this hipster trend has given it a whole new lease of life. And this super short version definitely proves that it can be incredibly stylish!

The beautiful bowl hair is also perfect for those with thick, straight hair and an oval face shape. And we think that this stunning, sweeping bowl cut looks even better because of its bold blonde colour. Don’t you agree?

However, if you decide to straighten your locks to nail this style, just remember to guard your hair beforehand with a heat protectant, like the VO5 Smoothly Does It Heat Protect Serum.

We just love the piecey look of the fringe of this boyish bowl cut. It’s a great way to soften the look and give the overall look a feminine final touch.
