8 Very Short Haircuts Trending Now
1. Undercut Pixie
When it comes to super short haircuts, the undercut pixie really makes a statement while retaining a touch of femininity. With this cool undercut, this look is fresh, modern and effortlessly cool. It’s best for heart and oval-shaped faces, and it looks great with both straight and wavy hair. To get it, ask your stylist for shorter (or even shaved) sides and back, with a bit more length on top. Then feel free to experiment with colors, textures and partings to complement your shorter style.
2. The Curly Top
Contrary to popular belief, very short hairstyles for women can be soft and vibrant, with plenty of texture. This one combines a curly top with a short, faded cut to create an ultra-cool look, and offers plenty of room to inject some personality into your style. Don’t forget to keep curly hair moisturized with a hydrating product like hair oil. We like Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil.
3. Buzz Cut
The buzz cut is one of our favorite very short haircuts for women. A strong, powerful and independent style, the buzz cut will enhance your best facial features and give your look a cool, contemporary edge. Did we mention that it’s also incredibly easy to maintain? (No more hours spent styling your hair in the morning!) Although this look leaves you with very little hair to play with, there is still plenty of room to inject personality to your look by adding some color like a bleach blonde buzz.
4. Gelled-Down Mushroom Cut
We all can admit that one of the reasons we opt out of getting a new cut is our lack of knowing the many ways it can be styled. It’s not everyday you want your look to stay the same. If you want to try out the mushroom or bowl cut as your very short cut, and want some styling tips, add this gelled down look to your list. To achieve this style, brush down your hair and add a quarter-sized amount of gel, like TRESemme Tres Two Extra Firm Control Gel, to your hair. Apply it to your hair, then brush down your short hair for an on-trend style that will stay put (and frizz-free!) all day long.
5. Triangular Fringe
Take a closer look at this fringe and you’ll notice it’s shaped like an inverted triangle. For all of you bob and bangs lovers, you don’t have to settle for a blunt clean line when it comes to your fringe. Take it up a notch and opt for a geometric short cut for an edgier look.
6. 1970s-Inspired Pixie
During the late ‘70s the super short swept back (or to the side ) style were really popular amongst men. The look is back as we’ve seen with hairstyles like the quiff and the combover, but who says a woman can’t don the look, too (and even better). Going for super short hair ideas like pixie cuts? This quiff-inspired combed-to-the-side look is yet another styling option to try out on your very short hair.
7. Cheekbone Bob
Time for a major game-changer with your hair? Go for a bold, stylish and drastic statement like this cheekbone length bob. If you’re using a cut like this to enhance your eyes, opt for a fringe that frames the eye area like this one. If that’s not your style, forgo the fringe altogether.
We’re all about enhancing natural texture, like in the TWA-style ‘fro. You can play with length in this look too, opting for a super short buzz or a haircut with more volume on the sides and top.
