Short Choppy Hairstyle with Layers

Style by Richard Weintraub, Makeup by Stephanie Parja, Yellow Strawberry Hair Salon, Sarasota, FL

How To Style:

  1. Use your fingers and blow dryer to remove moisture from strands. Don’t be too particular about what direction you are blow drying as you want to build up volume and grit.
  2. Use a flat iron on a few random pieces around the face to show off the layers.
  3. Tease the crown if needed and layer on some texture spray.

Recommended Products:

Try Joico Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax to really amp up the texture of this look.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round or square shaped faces would look great with this messy hairstyle. Thick hair with straight to wavy texture is ideal.

Tip:

The short choppy layers are echoed in the short choppy bangs. The matching textures make this overall look natural and harmonious.

#2 Whispering Waves

The choppy layers on this hairstyle are styled in a softer way than a traditional shag. The ends are rounded out so the overall finish is more feminine and girly.

How To Style:

  1. Start with clean dry hair and part to the side.
  2. Use a large-sized curling iron to quickly hit the ends of strands all over the head. Flip one side out and away from the face and the other side towards the face to create the asymmetrical finish.
  3. Tease the crown slightly and spray with a texture spray.
  4. Scrunch up strands with your hands to rough up the look a little to keep it from appearing too “perfect”.

Recommended Products:

CHI Spray Wax is a great product to add softer texture to hair.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round and square shaped faces would look awesome with this short hairstyle. Thin to medium amounts of hair on ladies with naturally straight to wavy texture will style easily into this look.

How To Style:

  1. Make sure hair dries in the same direction by combing it over as soon as you get out of the shower, then towel it dry.
  2. After you blow dry, use a flat iron to feather pieces over and away from the face. Flick the iron to really create a winged out texture.
  3. Use a light pomade or hair cream and rake through to show off your layers even more.

Recommended Products:

Try Prive Grooming Cream to smooth and detail your layers.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Heart shaped faces are the best shape for a pixie. Medium to thick amounts of hair with straight to light curls work best for this style.

Tip:

Shorter hairstyles often require more frequent trips to the hair salon for maintenance. Ask your stylist if they offer complementary or reduced prices for neck trims and bang trims in between regular appointments.

#4 Raise the Roof

This hair-raising cut has tons of volume and cool, chiseled layers. The interesting asymmetry and angled shapes make this a true stand out.

  3. Lift up the roots at the crown and spray with a strong hold hairspray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Heart shaped faces are best for this look. Thin to medium amounts of texture with straight hair textures are ideal.

Tip:

Short hairstyles are still full of versatility. Slick this short style back for a modern/wet look, or pin hair up for a more punky style. Get creative and make the most of your short choppy hairstyle!

#5 Chopped Locks

This hair-raising pixie cut is funky and fun. The choppiness makes it interesting and hip.

How To Style:

  1. Grab a blow dryer and dry strands up and back, trying to create as much lift at the root as possible.
  2. Use a strong hold pomade to rake through hair from the front to the back to really get that hair-raising result.
  3. Use fingers to play with the layers until you get the shape you want.

Recommended Products:

Try Redken Polish Up Pomade to keep those strands in place.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round, square or heart shaped faces would wear this pixie well because it adds height. Medium to thick amounts of hair on ladies with naturally straight or slightly wavy hair will style easily into this look.

Tip:

Showing your stylist a side or a rear view of a hairstyle you like is very helpful.

#6 Angled Elegance

Take cinnamon and spice up a notch with fabulously colored lowlights and highlights. Long, chunky pieces of hair around the front are perfectly disconnected from the tapered back. More disconnected layers in the bangs help add a multi-layered dimension to the cut.

Style by Folicle Salon & Spa, Charlotte, NC

How To Style:

  1. Protect your hair from heat and blow dry your hair with a paddle brush or a round brush to smooth.
  2. When hair is completely and totally dry, section out a small area at your neck and flat iron.
  3. Continue dropping down sections of hair and flat ironing so you get a perfectly sleek effect.

Recommended Products:

To get super straight hair, apply a product like Jonathan’s Stylist Professional Series Straightening Lotion. It protects hair from heat and gives it silky soft body and smoothness. Also consider using a shine serum to really amp up the shine like Glossing Mist by Pureology.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round and heart shaped faces are ideal for this a-line bob. The straighter your hair is naturally the better, and thin to thick hair would work with this style of hair.

Tip:

You don’t have to have bangs to pull off this gorgeous haircut! Keep them longer and you’ll still have a beautiful shape.

#7 Cutting Edge

This razored out fringe creates a fun shattered effect all around the face. Keeping the rest of the layers long and sleek really makes the front choppy pieces stand out. Deep raspberry highlights add a pop of color throughout this edgy haircut.

Style by Shortino’s Salon & Spa, York, PA

How To Style:

  1. Apply smoothing products to your hair before you blow dry and use a paddle brush or round brush to blow dry your entire head. Really pull the hair towards the face when you are drying.
  2. Section out hair so you can flat iron small pieces of hair straight and smooth. Again, pull the hair towards the face while flat ironing to really frame the face.

Recommended Products:

Using products that help keep the hair smooth and straight will really be key to this style look fantastic. Try Garnier Blow Dry Perfector Straightening Balm for sleek hair. It has Moroccan oil as an ingredient to really soften hair too. Follow up with Garnier’s Flat Iron Perfector Straightening Mist on your dry hair before you flat iron.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Due to the face-framing perimeter, this hairstyle would work on all face shapes and on clients who have straight hair of any thickness.

Tip:

For this particular style, make sure you are not the type of person who likes to put their hair behind their ears because it defeats the purpose of having the razored fringe around the face.

#8 Copper Escape

Gorgeous copper and gold hair shimmers as it’s tousled about. Jagged ends are full of brilliant texture and fun detail. The ends seems to dance around the face and look incredible with the chiseled pieces around the jawline. Keeping the layers medium to long give this choppy hairstyle tons of fabulous movement and magnificent volume.

A short choppy hairstyle

Style by Carmen Carmen Salon Spa, Charlotte, NC

How To Style:

  1. To get the most volume out of your hairstyle, try blow drying your hair upside down with a paddle brush.
  2. Remove most of the moisture from your hair, then flip your hair right side up and use a round brush to finish of the ends and round them under.
  3. Part your hair way over to the side to create that huge voluminous mound on top of your head.

Recommended Products:

This style has tons of volume, so use a mousse like Privé Root Amplifier to help achieve it. Just a small amount goes a long way to adding great body and lift. Also, spray your hair with Privé Flash Brilliance while it’s wet to cut down drying time and add incredible shine.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

The soft chiseled layers will compliment most faces, though round shaped faces should opt for a bit more layering to add some balance. Medium to thick hair is great and naturally straight hair or with subtle wave is ideal.

Tip:

Keep in mind that with a picture like this, the hair is pulled dramatically over from the side which is not a completely realistic way to wear it every day. Ask your stylist to help customize the cut and style to make it slightly more wearable for daily life.

#9 Rock Chick

This choppy hairstyle screams texture. Razored ends poke and flip out all over the place from the front to the back of this amazing cut. Short, frayed bangs and choppy layers as well as the multi-faceted colors throughout keep your eye moving around the hairstyle.

How To Style:

  1. Apply some foam or light hold mousse to the hair right out of the shower to add some texture to your blow dry.
  2. Part hair to the side and simply blow your hair dry using your fingers to coax hair in the direction you want to to lay. For example, blow the bangs forward and to the side and the top crown layers back.
  3. When hair is completely dry you may go in with a flat iron to smooth some of the pieces.
  4. The fun part of this hairstyle is to add the fun flicks of texture by using some hair wax or pomade.

Recommended Products:

I love Thickening Pomade from Fat Hair. It plumps up your hair’s texture with a matte finish that thickens as you style. Fine haired clients rejoice!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Round, pear and heart shaped faces would look great with this long-banged, rocking pixie. Thin to thick hair would be amazing, but curly hair would not!

Tip:

Be prepared! Keep some styling cream or pomade in your purse for any necessary touch ups throughout your day.

#10 Fringe Benefits

This cute pixie cut has longer bangs that have been chipped at to create a nice texture and wispy feel. A tapered area in the back is still kept soft with razored edges. Pop in some lighter colored highlights to break up the color.

How To Style:

  1. Use a comb on your hair right out of the shower to part your bangs forward and to the side.
  2. Use your fingers to comb through the rest of your hair, pulling it in the directions you want it to go.
  3. Blow dry your hair using a round brush on the bangs and your fingers on the rest.
  4. Use a flat iron around the front of the face and on the bangs to pull hair forward.
  5. Break up the sleekness and add texture by using the tips of your fingers to piece out the bangs and the back of your hair with product.

Recommended Products:

To add some texture to this short crop, opt for a hair wax or pomade. I like Healthy Sexy Hair’s Soy Paste to break up and show off all the great chunky layers.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

The thicker bang and face framing layers are perfect for heart shaped faces. Pretty much all hair thicknesses can achieve this style, but girls with crazy curls will have a harder time styling these sleek bangs.

Tip:

Keep in mind that short haircuts are low maintenance for everyday drying and styling, but require more trips to the salon to keep the length and shape. Weigh the pros and cons before plunging into this short pixie style.

#11 Blonde Culture

This cute crop looks sleek and serene, but look closer and notice all the amazing piecy texture! Short, choppy strands of hair sprout out around the crown area down into an edgy perimeter. Soft and sweeping side bangs create a flattering shape and blonde highlights help frame the face as well.

How To Style:

  1. Out of the shower, use a comb and part your hair deeply on one side.
  2. Use a paddle brush to blow dry your entire head of hair. Use a round brush on the bangs to add some softer shape.
  3. Use your flat iron to detail and smooth the hairstyle when you are done.
  4. Use your fingers and some pomade to piece out the layers on the ends.

Recommended Products:

Use a mousse to add body or a foam like ghd Style Total Volume Foam, then use a light pomade like Murray’s. Privé has a Texture Spray that would be fabulous to add some grit too.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Heart and oval shaped faces would look best with this style, but round and square shapes may be able to pull it off as well. Thin to medium thick hair will look even fuller with this short hairstyle because of the multiple layers. Straighter hair will look most like the picture, but clients who have slight wave will look adorable too.

Tip:

Be versatile with your haircut. This particular cut would look gorgeous slicked back as well!

#12 Short Shag

Short and sexy edges make up this cute crop. The edges taper at the neck and are razored throughout – even up into short sprouts at the crown. Leaving the bangs long and smooth help keep this edgy haircut feminine.

How To Style:

  1. Part bangs to the side and blow dry your entire head.
  2. Flat iron bangs if you need to.
  3. Use your favorite pomade at the roots for volume and on the tips of the hair for texture. Done!

Recommended Products:

Use a fun pomade to really add those fun flicks and volume to the hair like American Crew’s Pomade medium hold. Add extra hold and texture by using Privé Texture Spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Square shaped faces are best for this edgy shag. Straight hair that is medium to thick works best.

Tip:

Ask your stylist to cut your hair with a razor instead of traditional cutting shears so you really get optimal texture. The ends will feel chunkier and will actually grow out better that a scissor cut.

#13 Flirty Flip

These choppy layers are perfect for flipping under or for flipping out. I absolutely love the long side bangs that blend perfectly into the layers. Hair is cut close to the neck and then chiseled up into whimsical pieces around the face.

  5. Drop down more hair in sections until you have flipped out all the ends of the hair.
  6. Gently break up your iron work with your fingers and then lock in place with hairspray.

Recommended Products:

A fabulous blow dry lotion is Redken’s Satin Wear. Apply and comb through before you blow dry for a silky soft finish. Use Healthy Sexy Hair’s Soy Weightless Touchable hairspray to keep the ends flipped out without weighing them down.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This face shape is good for girls with round and square shaped faces. If you have thin to thick or straight or wavy hair, this hairstyle can be rocked by you.

Tip:

Don’t hold the hair in the iron for too long or you could burn your hair. Just clamp the ends down, flip them out and release.

#14 Strawberry Streaks

Pale blonde color has subtle pink ribbons of color that add dimension and interest to this choppy hairstyle. This a-line haircut is made fun and unique with cool disconnected layers. Chop in some short side bangs to add some mystery!

#15 Punked out Pixie

Keep the hair super short around the neck and taper softly up into adorably razored pieces for a totally stylish look! This hairstyle proves that just because your hair is short doesn’t mean you can’t rock fun highlights and color. Blonde peekaboos are nestled into brown and cherry ribbons that really glow.
