Finding new ways to style your short hair is not always easy. The length kind of limits you when it comes to hairstyle choices. But while you may have lesser options than your long-haired friends, there are still a lot of interesting ways you can wear short hairstyles.
Just check back here every once in a while when you find yourself stuck for ideas, because we’re pretty sure you’ll find some fun and interesting looks in our galleries. We always got you! In fact, here are a couple of stunning short hairstyles to try now.
Fun & stylish hairstyles for short hair
1. Side-swept pixie
It’s three fabulous hairstyles in one look: messy, side-swept, and a pixie! What else can you ask for? This super chic hairstyle gives you a sexy, supermodel vibe and is a perfect hairstyle choice for parties.
2. Wavy crop
Keep your short crop looking soft and feminine by incorporating subtle waves and volume to your style.
3. Choppy bob + short bangs
Match your devil-may-care style with a short choppy bob and short, uneven bangs. This look may be harder to pull off for some, but it definitely makes a statement and if that’s your style, you’ll be able to rock this short haircut with ease.
Editor’s tip: Frizz would quickly ruin this hairstyle, so to make sure you have smooth, shiny tresses, wash your hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and follow with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner.
4. Side-swept lob
The long bob is another classic we couldn’t leave out of our list of top short haircuts for women. With a side-swept style that you can keep in place with a pin or accessory, the lob will suit women with both active and professional lifestyles.
5. Wavy bob
If you have a bob and you want to stick to a classic look, go for loose waves. This short hairstyle will always have a place in our hearts and is super easy to emulate.
6. Tousled pixie
This is a perfect look for laid-back ladies with curly locks. If you’re game for a fun and interesting ‘do that makes a style statement, this is a great option for short hair.
7. Pixie cut fade
Who says only men can enjoy this trendy cut? Going for the fade makes your pixie cut more interesting. It’s super stylish and bold and brave, and shouts utter confidence! For added fun, bleach the top while leaving the sides with natural colour.
8. Sleek shag
We love shags as a short hairstyle for women! Something about shag haircuts rebels against the common hairstyle sensibility. They veer away from the usual straight hairstyle and give your hair some unusual texture while being easy to maintain!
9. Bob with bangs
The classic bob — what could go wrong with it? Nothing, really, and it suits a number of face shapes. But just because it’s common, doesn’t mean you should opt out. It only means you’ll have even more ways to style it!
10. Cropped curls
Put two short hairstyles together for fun and experimentation. These cropped curls are short, choppy, and full of texture, and is perfect for those who want to play around with a bunch of looks.
11. Mod top
Give this chic, retro hairstyle a try and it will definitely get heads turning. Channel the sophistication of Twiggy in this mod top. The long-ish pixie features wispy bangs and soft texture which perfectly frames your face.
12. Crop top
Go short with cropped hair, but balance it out with some length at the front and top to give it movement. This ensures it doesn’t lose volume.
13. Spiky long pixie
Lack of length doesn’t have to mean you have to lack in fun, too. Keep your look fun and funky with a messy hairstyle then throw in some colors that would definitely not go unnoticed. To achieve this look, add a lot of texture to your hair, mess it up, with strands going in all directions and set with hairspray.
Editor’s tip: We recommend TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray to hold and control your style. During styling spray in sections for buildable volume and finish your look by spraying all over for added hold.
14. Blunt layered bob
Let your hair fall on your eyebrows and your hair, but let this blunt bob frame your look. The abrupt lengths and straight cut will give your pixie-bob a unique touch. If you have a heart-shaped face, this would work perfectly for you!
