1. The Half-Up, Half-Down Bouffant

Could this hairstyle be any sweeter? Drawing inspiration from the vintage era, this first cute short hair look is a half-up, half-down bouffant is the perfect ‘do for a night out on the town. With its volumized and textured top, curled-in ends, this hairstyle is definitely one of our fave short cute hairstyles.To help add volume to your mane, we suggest spritzing some Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Weightless Blow Dry Spray onto your strands after washing and before blowdrying and styling.

2. Simple Side Twist

While we agree that the number of ways you can rock a short bob is somewhat limited, there are definitely still plenty of easy styling hacks to upgrade your crop. And a simple side twist is all you need to add a little va va voom to your ‘do! This style in particular falls into the cute short hairstyles for girls category. What makes this look so great, is that if you love braided ‘dos, but you’re less than a plaiting pro, this traditional side twist is an easy way to fake it ’til you make it.

3. Short Shag Cut

Okay, so a shag cut isn’t an obvious choice for people looking for cute short hair styles, but this look has been upgraded with soft bangs and more gentle layers, for an oh-so sweet finish. And guess what? If you’ve got naturally wavy hair, a shag cut is also a great way of enhancing the texture of your locks – bonus!

To create this hairstyle (best for those with medium-to-thick hair), add layers to produce a lighter and more dainty, feminine feel. And don’t forget to pair it with a full, piecey fringe to perfectly complete the look.

4. Half-Up, Half-Down

When it comes to short feminine hairstyles, half-up styles are some of our favorites. They’re almost as easy to whip up as the classic messy bun, and make for the perfect cool-girl-lazy-girl hairstyle. And while this ‘do does exude a more laid-back vibe, you can easily make this hairstyle appear more elegant with the right accessories! Trust us, hair accessories are ideal for ladies looking to upgrade their cute short hair. For a really texturized style, add some of the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse to your roots before you create the style to ensure a lovely lived-in finish.

5. Wavy Side-Parted Bob

Bob haircuts can look really fantastic – plus they don’t need to be super sleek and smooth to look stylish. When it comes to cute short haircuts for women, a softer, textured bob is definitely one of our favorite looks as it gives a more feminine and laid-back feel.

Try it with a deep side part and a soft sweeping fringe, styled across your forehead, before working in some texturizing cream, like the TRESemmé Make Waves Defining Cream, to add body to your waves (and keep them there!).

6. Layered Long Bob

Rocking cute short haircuts for women doesn’t necessarily mean chopping all your locks off! If you’re looking to transition to a shorter length for the season ahead, but are a little apprehensive about trying out a cropped look, just turn to the lovely lob (a.k.a a long bob), that can be given a little boost with the help of some cleverly placed layers. Add plenty of layers throughout the mid-lengths of your mane to create volume, yet ensure you keep the length a little longer around your face to frame your pretty features!

8. Short Bob

For a classic cute cut, opt for a short one-length bob with a chic bang. We love this combo that takes its cues from high-fashion. Be sure to have serum on-hand to make sure that this look stays sleek and frizz-free.
