Short Hairstyles for Women

Many women love the idea of getting a new hairstyle do but are afraid of making a change. Sometimes, change is good though, so don’t be afraid to try something different.

Now, before picking out a hairstyle, remember to consider these three factors:

1- Your Face Shape

Oval faces:

If you have high cheekbones, definitely get a short hairstyle. The short will most likely accentuate this and can enhance your beauty. Pixie styles and boy cuts work wonderfully.

Round faces for Short Hairstyles

It’s recommended to pick a short hairstyle that can minimize the roundness of the face, not increase it. This can be done with a style with waves or deep bangs. Super short or slicked back looks are a huge no-no, especially bobs if not done correctly. The trick here is to texturize in the right places. If you’re going for an around look though, go for it then. The faces of Kelly Clarkson and Ginnifer Goodwin serves as great examples.

Heart-Shaped faces:

Your goal is to draw attention to your eyes and cheekbones. Avoid thick, heavy bangs, especially short ones. Longer wispy layers, soft side-swept bangs, or asymmetrical and blunt cuts are more appropriate, not to mention fun and flirty. See celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston for more inspiration.

Diamond faces shape for short hairstyles

Diamond faces:

This face shape is similar to the oval; if you have high cheekbones, show it off. Avoid styles that add height and thick bangs. Waves, layers, side parts, and bob cuts work magic.

Square faces:

Bobs can work magic for this shape, especially curls, choppy ends, layers, and bangs. The trick is to bring less attention to your strong jawline and soften your features. Other than that, most short haircuts work.

Long faces:

Fringes, choppy cuts, and textured looks are what you’re aiming you’re your goal is to find a hairstyle that adds width. While it’s difficult sometimes to get away with long hairstyles, this is why short haircuts work for long faces. It’s a chance to emphasize that slender face with short curls and waves. Blunt cuts, bobs and rounded do’s work well.

2- Your Facial Features

For example, if you love your aqua blue eyes, choose a short do that emphasizes that. Notice how you want to draw attention to your best features, not you’re worst. It’s about bringing the best out of you. Details in number one should help with this.

3- Your Hair Type and Texture

Curly Hair:

Those with curly hair better watch out because short hairstyles might not be the best idea. You should tread with caution since curly hairstyles tend to frizzle or become poufy. Tons of layers and thinning of the hair helps a lot. The key is to work with the curls, not against them. Maybe try opting for a medium or long do instead. A short do is possible, just hard to accomplish.

Wavy Hair:

This hair type has similar issues that curly hair types have. This shouldn’t be a big problem though because this natural wave can benefit you.

Thick Hair:

It’s said that thick hair texture accommodates almost any short hairdo. Oh, how true that is. Faux hawks, shags, pixies, you name it. All you need is the right cut.

Thin Hair:

Short hairstyles, hands down, do go well with this hair texture. Thin hair is perfect for creating volume by adding wispy bangs or choppy layers. The shag and pixie suit the texture nicely.
