NYFW Model: Short Hair Trends from the Runway
1. Mushroom Haircut
Let’s be perfectly honest here: you’ve got to be pretty brave to go for this cut. Not for the scissor shy, this chop is all about getting a really short chop around your hair as you focus on the length towards the front of your head that serves as quasi bangs. An edgy cut that looks awesome on long and round faces, we love how short hair fashion like this accentuates your natural texture, bringing the focus to your cheekbones.
2. Bob and Bangs
The bob and bang hairstyle combo is one of our favorite short haircut ideas that requires commitment to both lengths. A fun hairstyle for those with straight hair, this hairstyle is sure to give you a stylish edge while also giving you the option to easily transition your long bangs into a side-swept look or pulled-back as you see fit.
3. Light Buzz
We are feeling this buzzed look with some baby hairs. While the traditional buzz cut focuses on little to no hair, this light buzz gives you the same vibe with a softer feel. Be sure to bring in pictures when you go for this look since ending up with a closely-shaven chop might not be what you’re aiming for.
4. Choppy Bob
Gone are the days when a bob haircut has to be one length, especially since you can chop it. This layered/choppy look is an ode to your inner rock ‘n’ roll goddess that you can muss together by using some of the Suave Professionals Texurizing Sea Salt Spray. Eyeglass are totally optional.
5. Bowl Cut with Blunt Bangs
A version of the bob but way shorter, the bowl cut is all about a short, controlled look. This is typically seen above the ears or right below them where your hair defines your face. Pair this with some stylish blunt bangs and you have one of the hottest looks out there.
6. Mini Fro
Not as short as the classic teeny weeny ‘fro that we’ve seen of late, this mini ‘fro focuses on more volume and a length. Opt for an all-over defined look or a high top hairstyles for some major ’80s vibes.
7. Structured Pixie
Of course we have to mention the pixie cut in a short hair trends piece, but this one is far different than the look you’re probably used to. This structured pixie is a sleek cut that focuses on shorter ends that fall above your ear. Use some gel to ensure that your hair stays put and frizz-free all day.
8. Middle-Parted Bob
We are seeings all sorts of middle-parted hairstyles at NYFW. This controlled hairstyle focuses on a straight (or straight-ish) part that you create with your fingers or a comb. Place your hair behind your ears and you’re good-to-go.
9. Fluffy Bob
Have curly hair and want to go short, no problem! 2017 is all about embracing your natural texture and going for a style that feels like you. Plus, who has the time to constantly blowout their wavy or curly hair?! After you get your chop, apply some mousse to your damp hair to help you to structure and define your curls. Allow it to air-dry and go!
10. Curly Top
Curls and short hair do work and look quite fierce together, don’t cha think? This shorter chop focuses on volumious bangs that you can create with the help of some mousse, like the TRESemme Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse. Muss it up throughout your short curls and go about your day.
For a look with some length, try out the fuller afro. A version of the mini afro, this look is all about a concentrated length that goes around your entire head. Some hair oils, like Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment, will help to ensure that your afro stays shiny and manageable.
If hair off, away and no where near your face is your MO, you’ve got to try out a short hair pixie with the slicked-back technique. To achieve this look, simply apply a moisturizing leave-in conditioner to your and then add in some gel to lightly slick it back. Short hair and no movement! We love it.
13. Ear-Focused Lob
Like the bob, we’ve seen some variations of the lob make its way on the runway. This look is a bit different with the focus having your hair away from your face with a controlled middle-part. This is also a good transitional cut if you want to lose some length but not all of your hair.
14. Stylized Bob
If waking up a little early is no biggie, then styling your bob might be the perfect look for you. To score this look, wash and condition your hair and let your hair air-dry until it’s at least 90% dry. Then, apply some heat protectant to your hair and place a round brush underneath your bob (as opposed to on top of your hair for a flipped-out blowout). Apply the heat from your blowdryer to your hair, moving along with the round brush as you create that flipped-in look. Repeat this process until your hair is dry and styled. Lock in your hard work with some hairspray.
15. Side-Swooping Pixie
We’ve touted our love for the ’90s on more than one occasion. But we can’t be the only ones that have a soft spot for grunge, especially as seen from the grungy hairstyles from NYFW. For a new short crop, we are all about this side-swooping pixie that features two very different lengths. This contrasting hairstyle is all about an edgy shorter length that compliments an impressively longer side bang. Pair this look with a black eyeliner for good measure.
