Ideas for Short Haircuts 2016

1. Curly Bob

Fall is the ideal season for experimenting with your texture since you don’t have to worry about the inevitable frizzy ends that summer humidity brings, or any harsh winter weather messing with your look. A curly bob is a polished and finished style that works in any environment and looks especially cozy swept up into a messy knot or ponytail, a style best reserved for hot drinks and fireside chats.

2. Voluminous and Natural

What better time to embrace your natural hair? Amp up the volume and the drama with a grown out afro that’s the perfect balance for all of the winter layering you’ll be doing. Be sure to lock in whatever moisture you can as the weather gets colder. We love the Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment for long-lasting shine.

Keep the cut simple and have fun with the color of your hair this season.

3. Two-Tone Pixie

Hold onto some of your summer color and go for a reverse ombre on a short pixie this season. Dark roots at the bottom keep this look grounded in fall, while the lighter color on top adds a little bit of fun. The key to maintaining a haircut this short is styling with the right products. Try out the TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Firm Control Gel that can help to keep your hairstyle in place.

All natural color and not too short on the length is the perfect recipe for easy hair that still qualifies as a change.

4. An Overgrown Lob

A shoulder-length straight cut lob in your natural hair color is a no brainer. Short enough to make a statement and long enough to experiment with, it’s a great way to change your look without going too far. Add some shine to your hair by using some of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist.

5. Textured Pixie

Th textured pixie haircut puts all the focus on your glowing skin. We also love how a layered and textured pixie looks darling with a cute beanie swept behind those choppy bangs.
