#10: Perfectly Cut Short Bob with Bangs

Consider this cute short bob with bangs with a slight angle for your little girl. It’s a classic and stylish girl haircut. This short hair for girls is easy to manage, whether your daughter’s hair texture is straight or curly. Consider keeping the ends blunt if their hair is finer. If they have thicker hair, consider adding more layers.

#11: Low-Maintenance Pixie Cut

Keeping a low-maintenance pixie cut is best accomplished by starting a little shorter. Starting shorter allows for a couple of extra weeks between haircut appointments. Pixie haircuts for girls have a wide variety of shapes. A low-maintenance shape would be shorter toward the bottom and slightly longer on the top. Focusing on just the front is a great way for younger ladies to learn how to use products and manage their specific hair texture.

#12: Layered Bob with Side Bangs

Trying a layered bob with side bangs is a smart choice for little girls that are all about fashion but still need to get through the day without their hair falling in their faces. When youngsters learn how to brush their blonde hair, wash it and style it for them at first. Side bangs keep a girl’s bob even more manageable, like having less for smaller kids to style.

#13: Inverted Bob

This angled cut gives your girl a new sense of style! Pros include less weight at the back and more length and cuteness at the front. A bob hair cut for girls is always a popular choice—pair girls’ short haircuts with some bangs or texture for unique styling.

#14: Chin-Length Bob with Center Part

This conventional yet classy shorter-length cut parted in the middle gives your kid a fresh and neat appearance. Little girls’ haircuts like this are ideal for round and oval faces.

#15: Edgy Stacked Bob

Keep it above the nape for a breezy yet elegant feeling. This one-length cut looks gorgeous on girls with short hair and a cute middle part! As they give the appearance of fullness, short girl haircuts like this are ideal for thin, fine locks.

#16: Graduated Bob with Side Swept Bangs

This angled round cut on this natural dirty blonde defines structure! It’s a refreshing and easy-to-manage look that little girls would surely enjoy! This girl’s short hair style that has a rounded shape looks fantastic on tiny, oval faces.

#17: Asymmetrical Bob

It’s a subtle asymmetrical bob that easily takes the hair off your little girl’s face. Short girl hair only requires a simple side part to add a touch of style.

Fine Short Hair for Little Girls
Instagram @hairbycallie.k

#20: Fine Short Hair

This short haircut is a layered bob with face-framing and a brow-length fringe. The cutest part of this short hairstyle is how I slightly stacked the back to give it a nice round shape. Also, this haircut needs little to no daily styling to look nice.

I suggest this short haircut for girls who don’t want to spend much time fussing with their hair in the morning. This cut also works for thick or thin hair. It does tend to add volume for people with thin hair. If your hair is thick, you may need to have it thinner or texturized to lay nicely.

#21: Short Boyish / Tomboy Cut

This look is a youthful flowy long pixie with structure and texture. It can move with you in any direction and still look young. It’s very wash-and-go. It would be best for little girls with naturally straight/wavy hair.

To style this boy cut for girls, I recommend doing rough-dry, air-dry, or wrap-dry and going with no product, yet still have this style be moveable. You could throw in dry texture spray or dry shampoo for more of a messy look. You can also put in a paste to pull out a piece-y textured look. It’s great for someone who wants to put less work into their hair and still be fun with it.

#22: Short Pixie Cut

This is an asymmetrical pixie cut. The cutest thing about this style of cut is that it complements her contrast of color and the softness of her cut. The elements work well together. Pixie cuts make fantastic short hairstyles for active girls.

It depends on the facial shape, features, hair texture, and quality. I always recommend a free consultation. It’s very beneficial to the kids and the stylist to help determine the best look and style that would be suitable and easy to work with at home.

#23: Short Shaggy Cut for Thick Hair

The beautiful thing about this cut is it can be for fun, stylish girls who like to wear their hair a little undone and not so perfect! This shaggy, asymmetrical bob by look creator Delainea Hubbard from Texarkana, TX, has an undercut because the girl had so much hair. “After I cut the perimeter of the hair, I point cut layers at a 90-degree angle,” Hubbard states.

To get all this texture, several different methods were done. Hubbard made a deeper point cutting on dry hair and chipping away at the heavy ends with the very tip of the shears.

To style a textured bob, Hubbard continues, “I used a root lifter and oil to smooth the ends, did a rough dry with my fingertips, and finished with the round brush. I used the flat iron to throw random curls and waves throughout the head.”

It has so much texture that it feels so light and airy for the ladies used to so much hair. This hair cut style for girls can be simple with a few curls, hairspray, or texturing spray to finish it off!

#24: Short Bob with Bangs

This bob cut for girls is a basic one-length bob with shorter bangs. The layers in this haircut give it lots of movement, so her hair will be just as bouncy as on the playground. Bobs and bangs make cute face-framing short hairstyles for girls.

When considering such a girl’s short hair style, you’ll want to consider your hair texture (Straight, wavy, or curly?) and your desired texture. How long will it take to style this haircut with your hair type? This haircut is great for this particular girl because of her naturally smooth/straight texture. She doesn’t like the hair on her face, so the bangs frame her face nicely and stay out of her eyes.

#25: Cute Pixie Bob

The first thing that comes to mind about this cut is sassy! This little girl has confidence and sass, and this haircut reflects that outwardly for her.

California-based hairstylist Lindsey Wentz made the shape and texture easy for her to style and wear with little effort. That’s so important for a kid with a sense of style. She continues, “I used Oi All In One Milk and Relaxing Moisture Fluid by Davines to style her. Her color is gorgeous and 100% done by nature (I can’t take credit for that).”

This look is great for someone with medium or fine hair texture and thin or medium to medium-thick density. It can be worn straight or curly/wavy. Wentz would not recommend it for someone with a ponytail the size of a Coke can or someone with an extremely coarse texture.

This haircut for girls’ short hair has a great shape on a round, oval, or triangular (add fringe) face shape and is for someone looking for the 5-minute style in the morning. You’re out the door with just a little product, a quick blow-dry of the front and roots to tame any cowlicks.

Trendy Undercut with Design

#26: Trendy Undercut with Design

It’s a sidecut or ladies’ undercut style. I love this look for every girl because it’s a super empowering transformation no matter how long the rest of your hair is. Adding a design to the undercut is a fun way to express your unique style and interests. This trend is very hot right now, whether on the side of the head or the back. It’s great for kids and women of any age and profession. These styles can also be easily hidden for the workplace by simply changing the parting of the hair.

A shaved undercut is one of the great short hair styles for girls with extremely thick hair who love to wear it up. This is also an amazing style on the side if you have short pixie styles because it adds character and creativity to your look. One thing you should be aware of with this style is that there is more upkeep than in your “normal” styles. The undercut must usually be maintained every two weeks to keep the designs fresh and bold. The darker her natural hair color is, the bolder the designs will look. I would suggest women with lighter hair colors go with a simpler design so that it doesn’t get lost against the scalp.

#27: Sassy Asymmetrical Pixie Haircut for Little Girls

An asymmetrical pixie cut is one of the best short haircuts for little girls. The cutest thing about this cut is you have options with style. This is one of the simple and easy short hairstyles for girls to style. Use KMS Playable Texture to style. It gives her hair the right about of volume without feeling too much product in her hair. With this cut, you must be committed to keeping up with the clipped side of the head. This pixie cut for girls is very face-framing and complements round faces.

#28: Super Cute Bob Cut with No Bangs

Consider a super cute bob cut without bangs if your long locks need a refresh. Cut the length between the chin and collarbone for a fresh take on a classic style. Blunt ends make thin hair look fuller. For thick-haired gals, remember to ask your stylist to add long layers. Also, remove weight through your ends for a sleek finish.

#29: Precious Layered Short Bob with Wispy Bangs

A layered short bob with wispy bangs is an adorable hairstyle for a young girl. The bangs and layers will provide texture and create a more tousled look. Any young girl would love this hairstyle!

#30: Cute Blonde Bob with Subtle Highlights

A cute blonde bob with subtle highlights is a wonderful hairstyle for straight hair. One of the greatest ways to make your bob more playful and fun is to put some vivid colors on a few streaks. I suggest you start with paler pastel colors on a girl’s hair cut because it’s easier to remove if you don’t like them.

#32: Short Top Knot Style for a Toddler

Try a short top knot style for a toddler using a small hair tie, some product, and a brush. Secure with bobby pins, and spritz with dry shampoo for added texture. Get an accessory to accent the style, as well.
