Cutting your hair can be scary, but the idea that only certain women can pull off short hairstyles is a misconception. Just like women’s face shapes and skin tones, short haircuts are very diverse. If you’re considering cropping your hair shorter, you have plenty of options when it comes to short hair styles.
Take a minute to think about short, edgy hairstyles you’ve seen. Who comes to mind? It’s probably less Shailene Woodley on the red carpet, and more Pink bringing down the house. Apply this to your own hairstyle. If you tend to stick to styles that lack texture, grab some styling wax and tousle those locks. Or if you tend to skip out on spiky styles, use gel to give your hair some lift.
The best way to achieve a bold and edgy style is to break out of your normal routine. Never be afraid to try something dramatic and different. That may include randomly curled sections, chunky pieces, spiked up hair at the top or back of your head or creating contrast. Grab a few products and play around with your short hair. You’ll be amazed at how simple it is to achieve an exciting and fresh look.

Hairstyles come and go. However, some styles are truly timeless and quite beautifully so. A short hairstyle is one of those styles that are quintessentially timeless and will never go out of fashion. While previously women experimented with this style for a bolder and edgier look, nowadays, you can even get a short hairstyle for a soft appeal.
With so many short hairstyles out there, you will certainly find a perfect fit and because this style will never go out of fashion, you can try it at any point in your life. Short hairstyles work beautifully well on women across every age. What’s more, you can also style your hair the way you want immediately after getting a short hairstyle.
Either way, this is an elegant and classy style that can also be doubled up for a casual look. And given these many perks it comes with, short haircuts will never be unfashionable.
At times women don’t get short hair falsely assuming that it wouldn’t compliment their face. But short hair complements almost all types of face. That is why it is only likely that at least one of the featured hairstyles would suit you.
One of the easiest ways to figure out whether the style works is by checking your face shape. You’re lucky if you have an oval face shape because it is ideal for short hairstyles. The same goes for longer faces.
People with fat or round faces are often dissuaded from trying this hairstyle. However, do not go by the rules and experiment with short hairstyles even when your face is round or heart-shaped. You can always experiment with layers or pixies as they tend to work with all facial cuts and structures.
Again, you if have a square or rectangular shaped face, you might have been told that short hairstyles won’t flatter your face. This is further from the truth because you can always work on flaws by styling your hair correctly.

If only hair would grow quicker, so we could have a completely new look every few weeks or so! LOL! Do you love these styles? And you can find more latest hairstyles on hairstyles weekly!
