The final days of December are a time when women start thinking about the changes they want to make to their appearance in the new year. This is especially true about hair – a lot of ladies feel that getting a fun new hairstyle is a great way to celebrate their fresh start. As a result, many opt for chic, trendy cuts or eye-catching hair-dye. However, when it comes to cutting their locks really short, most women feel reluctant to take the plunge. They worry that styling short hair is difficult, that it will not suit their face or that they will miss their long tresses. We are here to dispel these fears and show you that some hairstyles for short hair can really work miracles by delicately underlining your most flattering features. Plus, shorter hair is a lot easier to care for and maintain, and can really make you stand out from the crowd!
The pixie cut – edgy style with an emphasis on felinity
The pixie haircut first appeared in the 1960s and has remained popular ever since. Refreshing and liberating, this cute style rejects stereotypes and gives off a playful yet confident vibe. While there are many variations to choose from, pixies with a side sweep are the most popular option at the moment. To create a truly unique look, consider adding some highlights or an ombre effect. Ladies with brown hair can opt for honey-colored strands while the more adventurous can try pastel colors. Pink and blue are still incredibly popular, and will give you a distinctive fairy-tale appearance.
The timeless bob and its many reinterpretations
The bob is an excellent choice for ladies who want to go short but are reluctant to opt for the more drastic pixie cut. It softens the face and gives you a glamorous, movie star look. Combine with bright red or pink lipstick and smokey eye make up for a striking an chic appearance. The blond bob is particularly popular this year, especially in its a-line, asymmetrical and blunt variations. If you have finer hair, we recommend opting for a shorter cut.
