  • Classic Bob with Blunt Bangs

    Call us biased, but this is one of our favorite hairstyles (I definitely sported the short bob with blunt bangs look for 5 years). Our short hairstyles list just wouldn’t have been complete without the classic bob. To get Katie Holmes’ hairstyle, all you need is a blow dryer and 5 minutes. Pretty neat, right? This look is best for women with heart-shaped faces.

  • The Fauxhawk

    For the brave-hearted short-haired gals in the world, this look is perfect for formal events (changing the status quo is fun!) This updo with braids looks rocker-chic, yet feminine at the same time.

  • Layers with Scarf

    Layered short hair is a favorite hairstyle among many as layers can add different, unique dimensions to a hairstyle. To change up the short, layered look, wear a scarf as a headband to add some color to your outfit and definition to your layers.

  • Headband Bouffant

    This short hairstyle looks intricate and difficult, but one peek at the tutorial and you’ll see it’s actually a breeze to master. Here’s to difficult things made easy!

  • Straighten It Up

    If you’re sporting the popular short angled bob, an easy way to dramatically define your angled look is to straighten it! This will give your hairstyle some much-appreciated edge and definition.

  • The Pixie

    Pixie cuts are great for women with subtle facial features and fine hair. To style, make sure you have some hairstyling products (gel, pomade, etc.) with you because that’s practically all you’re going to need for a haircut like this.

  • Wavy Layered Hair

    A great and easy way to give an edge to a short layered hairstyle is to simply add waves to it.

  • Slicked Back

    This clean and sleek look is perfect for women with oval faces. Keep the hair straight, parted at the side, and slicked back to accentuate your beautiful facial features.

  • Halle’s Pixie

    What else could we call this pixie cut aside from “The Halle?” Halle Berry is the poster child of this now-popular hairstyle, so we have to pay homage. To soften the look, add height at the top and let the fringes hang over the forehead. Basically, just do whatever Halle does–you can’t go wrong.

  • Bouffant with Long Fringes

    When it comes to formal hairstyles for short hair, the bouffant is an undeniable classic. To do this look, start by teasing the hair to add volume and create the bouffant, then let some hair hang loose in the front for an elegantly minimalist look.

  • The Shark

    For women who like the bold and edgy look, the Shark is perfect. Just section the hair on top and shape it like the dorsal fin of a shark. (You might just need a bigger boat.)

  • Cool and Chic

    This look is another take on short hairstyles. Here, the hair is cut longer at the front and shorter at the back. The secret here is the initial cut and how you then choose to define those layers. A straightening iron will be needed to tease the crown and add some definition.
