As beauty editors who have spent years trying new products, experimenting with the latest intricate hairstyles, and depending on our locks to be both versatile and on-point, we’re the last ones to ditch our longer strands for any new short haircuts on the horizon. So when we tell you that the latest new short haircuts are having us considering sacrificing our mermaid hair in favor of a new, shorter look, it’s no joke. These new short haircuts have us making a beeline for the hair salon and we have a feeling you’ll feel the same way:
10 New Short Haircuts to Consider
1. Dip-Dyed Pixie
A dip-dyed pixie? Sign us up. Dye your fresh new short haircut a bright shade of bleach blonde and have your stylist dip dye the ends pink. While the bleach is permanent, you can use a semi-permanent hair dye for the pink color and have it fade from bright to pastel to barely-there in no time.
2. Gravity-Defying Roots
Boost your roots and give them a gravity-defying style with Catwalk by TIGI Root Boost Spray. Spritz some of this product into your roots and blow dry your hair upside down for the most volume. We love this variation on a classic short style.
3. Clean Shaven Edges
Bold and daring, this short haircut is eye-catching in the best way. Cut off all your strands and dye your hair a bright shade of icy blonde color. Keep your color cool and avoid a brassy hue by swapping out your usual shampoo for Bed Head by TIGI Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo.
4. Extra Long Pixie
Go short without going overboard. We love how this extra long pixie looks on relaxed hair, but we’re confident that women with virtually any hair type and texture can wear this look with ease.
5. Style Your Curls
Give your short curls some definition by running TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel through your strands while they’re still damp.
6. Highlighted to Perfection
Use this opportunity to play with color, texture and length. We love how this short highlight haircut looks when style with the perfectly imperfect flat iron wave.
7. Cropped Natural Curls
Go shorter than you’ve ever gone before with this closely cropped style. We love how this style manages to be both textured and sleek at the same time.
8. Brushed to the Side
When in doubt, keep it casual. Brush your strands to the side in this easy and laid-back look.
9. Take it Back
Alternatively, use your fingers to comb your hair straight back into this edgy and cool style.
10. The Easiest Waves
These are hands down the easiest waves you’ll ever create. After you shower, plait your damp hair into two thick braids and sleep with them in. In the morning carefully take the braids out, run your fingers through them and voilà: a full head of easy waves.
