Like a breath of fresh air, switching things up with your hair can give a much-needed sense of rejuvenation, and what better way to switch up than with cropped hair? If you’ve been waiting for a sign that it’s time to get the big chop—this is it! From uber-sleek pixie cuts to flattering neck-length bobs that are oh-so-sultry, short hairstyles are a must-try this season!

Conveniently, these neck grazing and feature accentuating styles work with both natural and artificial textures. They embrace curls and afros just as much as they fit into straight and woven tresses. Whether you’re a naturalista looking for protective mane solutions or you’re in the mood for a whole new look, short hairstyles are perfect for you.

Here are a few tips to consider when selecting the perfect short hairstyle… 

#1. The shape of your face

The first thing to do when choosing the perfect cut is to put facial dimensions into consideration, the most vital of which is the shape of your face. Whether round, oval, or heart-shaped, knowing your facial structure is the ultimate hack to rocking a short hairstyle effortlessly. For instance, a pixie cut works magic on oval faces.

#2. Colors and tints

Here you get to play with your creative side while pushing conventional limits and possibly coming out of your comfort zone. With an array of shades that scream “old Hollywood” such as blonde and honey-brown hues, foxy tints of blue, and platinum, there’s a color for everyone! Ultimately, have fun and don’t be coy with expressing yourself through colors and tints.

#3. Textures and styles

When it comes to the texture of your hair, you’re absolutely in control of the short hairstyle you choose. You can revel in different styles from the powerful natural afro and kinky coils to the good old 90s bowl cut or a wet and wispy fix.

If you’re looking for a short hairstyle that’s as empowering as you are and suitable for both short and medium hair, we’ve got you covered.

Check out 13 easy short hairstyles that scream class…

Buzzcuts with arts

Channel your creative side by going full-fledged artsy with your mane. The buzzcut gives a proud and unapologetic look while commanding a vibe of confidence and originality. Then, include some graphics to score extra points. The graphics don’t have to be anything too fancy as sometimes, all you need is a few lines drawn wittingly.

The curly afro

The curly afro is a modern take on the traditional ‘fro we grew to love, thanks to the ’80s pop stars.  This modern version is a new favorite because it has more movement and tangles less than the original. A great choice for naturalistas.
