Short haircut ideas that will make you want to go for the chop right now.
SHORT HAIR, DON’T CARE
Have you been thinking of requesting a much shorter cut next time you hit the hairdresser? Well, you should. We’ve asked ourselves the same should-I-shouldn’t-I questions, but now we know the answers and we’re here to convince you too.
WOULD I SUIT SHORT HAIR?
There’s a cropped hairstyle to suit every style and face shape, trust us. From Kristen Stewart’s bleached crop and Michelle Williams’ pixie to Anne Hathaway and Kate Mara’s more grown-up cuts, you’re sure to find the perfect hairstyle for you in our A-list edit, below.
IS SHORT HAIR IN STYLE?
Always. The pixie cut is one of the most iconic hairstyles of all time – just look at style heroine Mia Farrow. And more recently the likes of Charlize Theron and Carey Mulligan who followed in Mia’s footsteps with stunning, choppy pixies. But there’s also a host of other short hair styles out there just waiting to be requested in the salon chair.
WHAT CAN I DO WITH SHORT HAIR?
Depending on just how short you want to go, there are hundreds of hairstyles you can experiment with. Super-short cuts are obviously more limited, but with a bob you have options to curl, braid, straighten and more.
5 BENEFITS OF HAVING SHORT HAIR
Some people say that you have to wash short hair more often. This is not true. But, you can wash it more often if you want to because it takes roughly five minutes to dry and style your hair as opposed to a whole evening of brushing and frazzling.
Did we mention how easy it is to style, whether or not you’ve just washed it? Getting up having slept at a funny angle so it sticks straight up in the air aside, you can pretty much wake up and walk out the house.
You can pull off statement make-up looks with aplomb if you’re rocking short hair. Fact.
You will stay at least 50% cooler in the hot summer months thanks to your easy-breezy short locks.
Your cut and colour may be cheaper (and quicker). Although we should mention that you’ll likely need to up your salon visits to roughly every six weeks.
