Short Crop and Haircut Ideas: 8 Cuts to Consider

1. Undone Pixie

In order to maintain a pixie haircut at the length you want it, you’d have to make sure you’re not skipping any hair cut appointments. However, when it comes to styling, like they say, it’s all in the wrist: girls can simply use their hands to rough dry and to style. No combs, brushes or heat-styling tools needed! To create the look, use some of the Suave Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, then set with a shine spray to finish your look.

2. Disheveled Shag

The shag hairstyle really doesn’t require that much maintenance. To style it is as simple as wash and go. With a gel, like TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel, girls with curly or wavy-textured hair can just rake the product throughout their damp hair, then air-dry or diffuse and be out the door, looking gorgeous.

3. Lob Haircut

The reason why we chose a lob over a bob is due to the simple fact that we haven’t met a girl who doesn’t love a low ponytail. With a lob, when you’re just not in the mood to enhance your waves or straighten hair with a flat iron, you can simply gather hair into a low ponytail hairstyle and call it a day.

4. Bob and Bangs

Just because you like short crops doesn’t mean you have to miss out on having bangs! We totally love the look of bobs with bangs. The only thing we caution about when going for this hairstyle is the actual length of the bangs you choose. Trying the long bangs trend with hair that’s just about jaw length can look a bit off. Instead, aim for your bangs to hit right around your brows or above for a more foolproof and flattering take. Feeling more confident? Try out the bob length hair with trendy micro bangs.

5. Side-Parted Pixie

We feel like nowadays, almost every pixie haircut comes without a part. Such a travesty, because trust us, we love a good side part! So, why not go for the side-part look in your pixie length short crops? It’s such a super cute look. Depending on what type of pixie cut you have, you may be able to do this cool, slicked-down, side-parted version. To achieve this look, you’ll need a wide-toothed comb and some gel. Use the comb to get a nice center part, then apply some of the gel. To get things ultra sleek, comb gel through your hair. Very quick, and super sharp!

6. The Buzz

We’re all about buzz cuts for women; they’re like the queen of the short crops. Wearing your hair this short takes confidence from the get go, but we know the longer you wear your buzz, the more confident you’ll feel. Plus, it’s also super chic right? Nothing says clean lines and minimalist style quite like a bare or very closely) shaved head.

7. High Top Crop

If you’ve got natural hair, why not try out the high-top crop? This is an ‘old school’ style usually reserved for the dudes but we think women would slay with this look too. The extra height on top can help elongate your features (and even make you look an inch taller). For a super slick angular look, wear this cut with shaved-down sides.

8. Pixie with Long Bangs

If you’re all about major short hair don’t care vibes but like a little hair around your face, try out a pixie with long bangs. Now, normally we wouldn’t recommend going for this look if you’ve got an all around short pixie. But if it’s done right with an already long-on-top pixie cut, we’re all for it! Style your hair into a swooping side bangs look for a gorgeous look.
