Maybe you’re already a “short hair, don’t care” girl, or you’re thinking about becoming one. And who wouldn’t? Short cuts are everything—quick and easy to style, versatile and adaptable to whatever the day holds. If you’re thinking of going with a shorter look, check out three of the best short hairstyles that are getting attention this year.
The round bob is a hit right now with celebrities making dramatic changes from long hair to short.
Generally worn with a center part, the short rounded bob has a blunt, chic look. Sweeten up the cut by tucking one or both sides behind the ears, or keep it down and sleek for an edgier feel. Take the cut a little shorter for an ear-length bob, with or without bangs, for a more fashion-forward style.
The sleek, round bob demands smooth and shiny hair, so product is your new BFF. Use our Shine Serum on damp hair to prevent frizzies and flyaways. That will help your hair resist humidity and protect it for styling with your flat iron.
The pixie cut takes you from sweet to fierce depending on how you style it. It can be playful, brave or full of attitude – perfect for fitting any personality type and mood. Want to really take it up a level? Talk to our stylists about adding full color or highlights. The pixie is perfect for reflecting your style.
This year’s trends include pixies with a little more length on top. It can be slicked back or volumized and tousled. Consider using our Thick & Full Root Booster for adding volume. Would you rather spike, texturize or slick your pixie? Pick up some Molding Mud to work through your hair for terrific definition.
You’ve probably seen variations on the choppy lob in social media lately with more celebrities and influencers adopting this cool cut. As temps start rising, you’re bound to see even more of the warm weather, beachy trend. But don’t just do it for the ‘Gram; get the choppy lob because it will make you look and feel great.
The lob ends at the shoulders or above, and its many styling options make it one of those cuts that look good on just about everybody. Towel dry, add light-weight Shine Serum and scrunch with fingers for a carefree style. Want more curl? Wind sections of hair around an iron, leaving ends unfinished. Not enough? Naturally curly hair or permed, tighter ringlets also look great with this cut. Just be sure to use Smoothing Mousse for curl without frizz.
In the classroom, on a date, at work or hanging out with friends, make these short looks your own, whatever the occasion.
