From bobs to buzz cuts, these are the best ways to sport short hair in 2017…
THE TRIED AND TRUSTED
The layered bob is often the haircut of choice for women going short with their hair for the first time. And it’s easy to see why: it’s not too dramatic, it’s easy to style, and it can be equally fun or elegant depending upon how you style it.
If you have thick, short hair, adding even a little bit of drama can make a big impact. Beachy waves for short hair started getting popular in the early 2000s and has become a go-to style for those who have little time to style, yet want hair with a difference.
Shooting up in popularity during the mid-90s thanks to ‘the Rachel’, side-swept bangs work great for every face shape. It delivers a stronger look to your overall persona, and you should definitely consider it if you’re someone who like to power-dress.
THE TWIST ON A CLASSIC
Want to lose a little more length than usual? Well, don’t hesitate to opt for a cropped bob. It’s a dynamic take on the classic bob that will definitely make you stand out. It is also a bit high maintenance though, so do keep that in mind.
Pixie with a Fade
Whether your pixie is inspired by Mia Farrow or Michelle Williams, there is no reason why you can’t jazz it up a bit. Pair your pixie with faded sides and back for a unique look. After all, why should only boys have all the fun with fades?
Straight Bob with Fringe
After 2 decades of lost in limbo, this hairstyle has come back into vogue thanks to Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing in Jurassic World. Another one for the power-dressers, the straight bob with a fringe gives you an edgy look and will perfectly suit your no-nonsense personality.
THE BOLD AND THE BRASH
We see far more women opting for the buzz cut than ever before. A great way to stay cool in the summers or have fuss-free hair when travelling, the buzz cut is only going to grow in popularity. We recommend getting one yourself to what all the buzz really is about.
You don’t have to be a Hollywood femme fatale to slick back your locks. With an incredible variety of hair styling products available in the market these days, getting a slicked-back look is far easier than you’d imagine. Besides, nothing says ‘bad girl’ like sleek, short hair pushed back.
Finally, a hairstyle that works only if you have short hair (you can try if with long hair, but it’ll look crazy weird). The asymmetrical bob is a great way to work in side-swept bangs as well as a fade in the same look! Again, this look might a bit on the high-maintenance side as the natural texture of your hair may not be suited this look. However, it is worth all the effort you put into it.
