Short hair looks so hot – and keeps you especially cool when the weather heats up. Here are some chic short cuts that are perfect for your hair, your look and your lifestyle.
The Pixie has never gone out of style, perhaps because it is so easy to care for. Hair is cut short on the back and sides of the head, and slightly longer on the top. The length can range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches in others. Halle Berry and Michelle Williams sport their Pixies on the red carpet … or any carpet for that matter.
This cut is shorter than short and works with all hair textures. Janet Jackson wears hers short and straight… and the look is no less than stunning.
Sharp and soft, razor cuts look natural, yet edgy. Stylists use sharp, knife like razors to slice and texturize the hair. Emily Browning and Rihanna’s razor cuts look super sexy.
The faux hawk brings the punk mohawk into the new millennium and beyond, and now there’s no need to shave the hair off the sides of your head. You can create the same faux hawk as Pink and Ruby Rose with a little gel, a brush, comb and some hairspray for hold.
The Inverted Bob
The classic bob gets a lift – hair is cut close to hug the nape of the neck, but longer on the sides. Keira Knightley, Scarlett Johansson and Tiffany Hines have all fallen head first for this modern take on a timeless style.
Soft, glamorous, and a little retro, the curly bob has been around since the ‘20s flappers. If you have naturally curly locks like Audrey Tatou, this style is great for you. If not, you can get the same effect with a curling iron.
Bangs are beautiful – whether you wear them blunt like Lady Gaga and Katie Holmes, or feathery and wispy like Eve.
Two-tone color adds a third-dimension to a short cut, but you’d best trust coloring this precise to a professional if you want to look as good as Danni Minogue and Keri Hilson.
If you love angles and side-parts, the asymmetrical bob is for you. The hair is cut short at the nape of the neck, longer on one side, and shorter on the other. The side-part is essential. This bob looks fresh on Vanessa Simmons, and different from every angle.
