9 short hair looks for when you want to make the cut
If the question “should I cut my hair short” frequently pops into your head each time you chance upon a celebrity with an edgy cropped ‘do, chances are, you’re already mentally prepared for it.
The question now then is, what should you hairstyle be? A messy pixie cut? A sleek bob? Bangs? Middle parting? Fret not, we’ve got you covered.
Here are some of our favourite short hair looks from the Spring/Summer 19 fashion shows.
Thick crown, blunt bangs
Those blessed with thick, straight hair might want to consider keeping a heavy crown for volume, then go thin with the pixie cut along your nape. The blunt bangs help to soften the look for an effortless cool girl ‘do.
Alternatively, an evenly-cut bob with a middle parting makes for a clean and chic look as well. If your hair is the kind to curl outwards, invest in a hair straightener that can help iron things out in the morning – it’ll just take 10 minutes.
Getting a pixie cut doesn’t mean you have to cut your long fringe with it – that can stay, and you can tuck it behind your ear for a cool androgynous vibe. For extra volume, style it up with some volumising wax.
On the contrary, for a look that’s artfully messy (like how hairstylists like to call it) – go for a tight “auntie” perm for volume. Keep the look clean still by not having bangs below your brows, and thin sideburns.
