Traditional Bob Cut

The first short hairstyle, and the one with the least amount of style altering commitment is the traditional clean bob. This one has been popular for decades and there’s a reason it continues to thrive. It balances out cute with mature professional and is incredibly easy to style on a daily basis. If you are looking to just start out with a short hairstyle, this is an excellent place to start.

Layered Bob

If you want to take the safe bob to another level, it is actually very simple. One thing you can do to take it from cute to sexy is layer the cut. Get the layer in the back cut at least an inch shorter than the front to create an beautiful slopping effect as the hair gets longer and comes around to the front of your face. It is a professional look that says you also know how to have a lot of fun on the weekends.

Color Bobs

One new and exciting trend that’s putting a twist on the time honored bob is using colors to make a serious statement with your hair. From rainbows to shades of purple to candy red shades into pink. Layering a range of colors into a bob is a great way to make your short hair unique and give it some eye-catching flare. If done right, the layered color look is sharp, sleek, and incredibly addictive for the eyes.

The Pixie

If you think bob’s just are not doing it for you anymore or you just want to go the whole way when it comes to revamping your hair to a shorter style, the pixie cut is one of the most popular go-to looks for girls looking to add some shorter flare to their hair. This cut is shorter than the bob and allows a much bigger freedom of styling options with all hair types.

If you want to go even farther and make your look totally you, you can spring for the boycut. This is sometimes interchangeably referred to as a pixie cut, it all depends on your definition of length for each. But this look is defined as very short hair, usually cut extremely short in the back and allowed to grow out more as we move to the front of the hair. It makes styling easy and offers a tomboyish or cute look, depending on what you want to get out of it.

Wavy Hair

Any one of these cuts could be given some added flare with wavy hair. Whether your hair is naturally wavy or you need to run it through a curler once or twice, short hairstyles can be given some serious body with wavy hair. From bobs to pixie cuts, wavy, full-bodied hair is an easy way to give yourself a great hair day. You can even take it up another notch by adding in any sort of color, whether it be a full dye job or just a streak here and there. Playing with your hairstyle is the next step in making your short look work for you.
