If you’re looking to try a bob, consider doing a blonde balayage bob to brighten up your look. Make sure to ask your stylist for layers to show off the dimension within your color. When in doubt, start with longer layers within your bob to just take some weight out of your hair and add a little texture to your style. Beach waves are the perfect style for a balayage and using a beachy texture spray, such as Beach Club by IGK, gives the perfect amount of volume and texture for style.

#9: Razor Cut Pixie with Micro Bangs for Older Women

Try a razored pixie with micro bangs for an enchanting new look. Super easy to style, layers throughout a pixie can give texture and movement to your hair. I personally love using a finishing product such as a putty or salt spray to give a piecey look.

We love this short graduated brunette hair. The free-flowing layers and soft texture is just what you need to elevate your look and spirits. Make sure you ask your stylist for product recommendations based on your hair type and how you should be styling this haircut so you can recreate this fabulous look at home.

A blonde inverted bob with tapered layers is an awesome way to make your bob look more voluminous.

#12: Fluffy Rounded Bob with Layers

This fluffy rounded bob with layers shows the right and wrong way texture can go. This amazing shape sets the example of how to make the most of your layered bob hairstyle. Even though a bob is heavily layered or textured, it can still be soft and glamorous.

#13: Ear-Length Bob on Bright Red Hair

Try an ear-length bob on bright red hair for your next charming hairdo. You don’t have to worry about much styling because layers will do most of the work for you. Personally, I like to give shorter hair extra volume by stacking products for maximum lift.

#14: Swept Back Style on a Feathered Pixie

Consider choosing a swept-back style for your feathered pixie to give a more effortless, but chic look. To create an illusion of fuller hair, try a dark brown hair color with your pixie. The style and color together will give an illusion of fuller, thicker hair, which makes this the pixie for the chic, but edgy brunette.

#15: Wolf Cut with Wispy Layers and Bangs

One of the more modern short layered haircuts it the short wolf cut. If you’re looking to switch up your look, go for this effortless bedhead look. The choppy layers create the perfect amount of texture and movement for an effortless style. Specify with your stylist how long you want the long pieces to be because, on a traditional wolf cut, there is a slight disconnection between those pieces and the rest of your haircut.

Shorter Layers on Sliced Pixie Hair

#16: Shorter Layers on Sliced Pixie Hair

The shorter layers on sliced pixie hair mix in a soft feminine finish on a masculine shape. When looking to get the best of both worlds, this haircut will allow you to tune into whatever vibe you’re feeling. The amount of texture within this cut gives a messy feel which makes it easy to style. Look for a wax or styling paste to emphasize the tousled look without leaving your hair greasy.

#17: Wedge Cut with Lavender Highlights

Try a wedge cut with lavender highlights for a short layered cut that will bring your look back to life. The contrast between the natural depth of your hair and pastel shades creates an interesting dimension and fades softly with every wash. Fashion colors such as lavender require extra at-home care, including washing with cool water and using professional quality products.

#18: Ash Blonde Pixie Crop with Crown Layers

An ash blonde pixie crop with crown layers is an ideal short layered haircut for women. Depending on your natural hair texture, you can air dry with a curl-enhancing product or use a round brush to create even more volume. Complete your look with a flexible hold hairspray such as Superfine Hairspray by Oribe.

#20: Soft Shaggy Pixie with Piecey Layers

Consider a soft shaggy pixie with piecey layers if you love a hairstyle with movement and texture that requires little to no effort to actual styling. If you’re daring enough to cut your hair into a pixie length, you’ll be thankful for all the cute and easy ways you’ll be able to style your new ‘do. You’ll want to make sure your hair is mostly all one length and not too short when cutting any layers because that’s what gives your pixie the “shaggy” look and feel. Of these hairstyles, a soft shaggy pixie is the way to go for maximum texture and volume.

#21: Short Wispy Layered Hair with Jagged Ends

Rock a short wispy bixie to get the most out of your fine hair. This cut is the perfect way to blend a timeless classic bob and a cool razor pixie together to form a perfect undone hairstyle. Ask your stylist for a razor cut with a small stack in the back and rounded wispy layers all over. Make sure to ask them to keep your neckline soft with jagged edges to keep your cut soft.

#22: Airy Brown Bob with a Center Part

Try an airy brown bob with a center part if you’re looking for a fuss-free styling routine. Feathering around your face gives a vintage 90s feel to your layered brown bobbed hair. Round brush your layers away from your face then add a little dry wax spray to this cut for that tousled, next day style.

Short Choppy Bixie Cut with Messy Layers

#23: Choppy Bixie Cut with Messy Layers

Choppy bixie cuts with messy layers are short layered haircuts that are easy, funky, and fun. A bixie is a cross between a bob and a pixie with all the texture. With this cut the bangs are heavy, your hair towards the front and sides is longer and the crown is short and spiky. I like to style this with a pomade or a dry texture spray for hold and pieceiness.

Pastel Lilac on Short Layered Feathered Hair

#24: Pastel Lilac on Short Feathered Hair

A pastel lilac on short feathered hair is not the color for you if you love hot showers, shampoo your hair every day, and are low maintenance when it comes to your hair. This color is great for girls that can handle the effort this color takes to maintain, as this pastel lilac will require frequent trips to the salon or a color-depositing shampoo or conditioner to keep it touched up every few weeks. You can enhance your new cut by coloring your hair a vivid color because it surely boasts your self-confidence up a notch to have such a fun hair color to wear.

Short Edgy Haircut with Razored Layers

#25: Short Edgy Haircut with Razored Layers

If you love short hair, you’ll be head over heels for this short edgy haircut with razored layers. It adds a special touch to leave a slight disconnect at the front of this haircut for a more dramatic effect. You’ll want to be mindful if you want to keep shorter face-framing pieces around your face, so you don’t cut too much into the actual shape of your overall length and longer pieces in the front. I like to add a bunch of shorter, disheveled layers with a razor to create depth and volume to your short edgy haircut.

Short Tapered Bixie with Highlights and Layers
Instagram @haircut_samira

#26: Tapered Bixie with Highlights

A tapered bixie with highlights takes the shortness of a pixie in the back while keeping length similar to a bob in the front. The mash-up of styles can help with ideas on how to get the most out of your haircut. The extra texture and layers add sass while keeping everything from getting bulky. Customizing different parts of this short hair, with different colored highlights, or more defined sideburns, can really showcase your personal style.

Short Layered Curled Haircut for Women Over 60
Instagram @mrsreesvbp

#27: Short Curled Haircut for Women Over 60

We love a short curled haircut for women over 60. Not only is this a cut that makes it easy to style, but gives great volume by being cut to the natural curve of your head. Short hairstyles can help you get an effortlessly classy look, just be sure your stylist offers you advice on how to maintain the look at home. You will be able to air dry if you have a natural curl, or air dry and add curls with a small curling iron. If you choose to blow dry, it will be simple, using hands to rough dry and a small round brush to finish.

Modern Nape-Length Pixie with Layers
Instagram @jcuthair

#28: Modern Nape-Length Pixie

A modern nape-length pixie is a softer cut than its predecessor, and you’ll love it. The stacked short layers give you a roundness at the occipital and the shaggy outline is so trendy. In my opinion, the best short layered hairstyles are dried closer to the head for a modern and easy finish. For a cut that looks urban and piece-y, try applying Pureology’s Mess It Up before you blow dry your pixie.

#29: Razored Shaggy Layers on Short Purple Hair

Razored shaggy layers are an awesome style when you want to spruce up your short style. When I have clients wanting a funky, unique color I ask them to think of their personality first, as you want it to suit your new look. This haircut is really enhanced by the purple color that adds so much spunk to your style.

#30: Vibrant Copper Hair with Short Layers

Try a vibrant copper haircut with short layers at your next salon visit. One of the most common ways to enhance your short layered hair is a bright vibrant color. Ask your stylist to cut your hair with lots of layers as a way to wear this look.

#31: Long Pixie Cut with Dimensional Layers

When considering a pixie cut, start with a longer length that ends around your jawline to frame your face. Add in dimensional layers to create body, but also to take weight out if you have thicker hair density. Your short layered look is styled best with a dry texture spray, such as IGK’s Beach Club, to give volume and enhance the texture in your layers.

Short Sleek Wavy Pixie with Short Bangs and Layers
Instagram @chloe_hair_mel

#32: Sleek Wavy Pixie with Short Bangs

You should try a sleek wavy pixie with short bangs. Ask your stylist for a cut that is full-bodied at the top and tapered at the nape. You can choose to cut the sides short or leave them long and tucked behind your ear. Leaving a piece out in front of the ear is an interesting option. To avoid too much fullness, try blow drying the roots closer to your head for a flatter finish.

#33: Golden Blonde Bob with Swoopy Ends

If you like to wear your hair down but often find it ends up back in a ponytail, try a golden blonde bob with swoopy ends. Your tresses will thank you. The shape of this cut adds fullness to the back of your hair yet is still long enough to frame your face beautifully.

#34: Textured Pixie Bob with Stacked Layers

For a chic look, try a textured pixie bob with stacked layers. If your haircut is weighing you down, a popular pixie bob is just what you need. Stacked layers will bring volume to your crown for a beautiful-looking silhouette. The classy and sassy style of a pixie bob will make you look and feel your best.

#35: Short Feathery Layers on White Hair

If you struggle with thinner hair, try short feathery layers on your white hair. This hairdo will add body and movement to your hairstyle.

Chin-Length Layered Hair
Instagram @giboazhair

#36: Chin-Length Layered Hair

On thicker hair types, an ideal style is a chin-length layered hair cut. The shorter messy layers break up your hair’s density and soften the strands for much-needed volume. Avoid blunt layering on a thick chin-length haircut, that style can be heavy and unflattering.

#37: Pixie with Top Layer Platinum Balayage

What’s a better mix than a pixie with top-layer platinum balayage? Pixies are a striking haircut, but throwing on a platinum shade takes your hair to another level. Having a longer layered top means you can be creative with styling and mix up your looks each day. Also, keeping it disconnected so the sides can be tapered short still radiates a feminine feel.

Short layered blunt bob with blunt ends
Instagram @yukistylist

#38: Short Layered Blunt Bob with Blunt Ends

Having a short layered blunt bob with blunt ends is great for straighter hair types who yearn for some texture. The blunt ends also work perfectly with finer hair to ensure there’s a structure in length. The layers add a soft movement, which enhances the life in your hair. This neck-length cut also works great for those who love an effortless, undone style.

#39: Short Hair with Wispy Layers

Effortless short hair with wispy layers is the perfect undone hair. While the length of the bob is kept blunt for fullness, enhancing the shape with some soft wispy layers adds texture and flow to your style. Try a little Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo in your hair once styled to get a stunning lived-in effect.

#40: Trendy Short Layered Cut

The sweeping layers of this short layered bob with a side part make it incredibly wearable for most women.

#41: Modern Pixie with Hidden Undercut

A modern pixie with a hidden undercut for straight hair is a great option for a short pixie. Short layered hairstyles for women create a modern pixie cut with layers that can volumize thin hair.

#42: Layered and Textured Short Shag for Thick Hair

This jaw-length cut is a short shaggy haircut with lots of layers. The shape is effortless and beachy, and this short cut is very versatile and can be worn smooth or with texture.

Short layered haircuts like this are great for medium to thick hair. It’s perfect for women who don’t want to spend a lot of time styling. Adding more of the top layers of your hair will help with the shape. Short shag haircuts can work for many face shapes, especially round and oval.

#43: Layered Pixie Bob Cut with Side Bangs

A short layered pixie bob cut with side bangs has volume built onto the crown. Short layered bob hairstyles like this have a little bit of a charm with feathered side-swept bangs. To finish off the short cut, try R+Co Trophy shine and texture spray.

#44: Undercut Long Pixie

Opt for an undercut long pixie that’s layered. I love how edgy and fun all of the texture created sits above a very visible shaved area. A short cut with layers like this makes such a bold statement. This razored pixie is great for women who have a lot of hair to manage. Thick layered hair has the tendency to look puffy and big when shorter, and this cut eliminates that problem by removing all the weight from the bottom of the head.

This saves a woman with thick hair a ton of time getting ready in the morning and gives an airy effect that thick hair can almost never achieve! If you have shorter thick hair, definitely try short layered hairstyles.

#45: Flippy Short Layers

Flippy short layers are a great way to get lots of movement and width into your hair. This cut works best on medium/fine hair. Short hair cuts with layering keep fullness in the base but allow more layering to give a flippy effect. The short haircut with short layers does require some styling. Try using a medium round brush to curl your hair under the brush when blow-drying.

Chin-length stacked layered bob for fine hair

#46 Chin-Length Stacked Bob for Fine Hair

This textured, short layered stacked bob gives a very stylish look while still giving a lot of versatility with all the layered textures. Considering adding blonde balayage lowlights to bring out all the layers and adds depth to your short blonde hair.

This chin-length, short layered bob cut is for women who like a natural, undone look and who don’t spend too much time styling their layered hair. The less this style is worked, the better. All the beauty comes from the natural look of all the texture in the layers while still keeping a polished style of the short bobs angle. A cropped layered cut on short hair is great for women with fine to medium hair to keep the weightless look of the shorter layers.

#47: Back View

The back view of this graduated bob with short layers is trendy yet sophisticated. The best thing about this short layered hair is that you can really customize this overall bob to your preference.

This look is for women that don’t mind more high-maintenance haircuts, women that already style their short hair every day, and that don’t mind using products in their hair. Straight to wavy medium hair with an oval face is ideal, but a woman with a more round face shape could keep more length at the front to help elongate the face.

#48: Flirty A-Line Cut with Short Layers

A short bob with short layers gives the look a lot of texture and movement without the layers being heavy. For this style, use Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam, Super Skinny, and Mirror Smooth Primer. Blow-dry your hair dry and then create the waves using a smoothing iron. When creating the waves,  use Paul Mitchell Neuro Style-Protect as a heat protector and Paul Mitchell Worked Up as your working spray.

#49: Get Up and Go Pixie Cut

A layered pixie cut is an easy, free-flowing, get-up-and-go kind of look. Soft pixie cuts with fringe do not require a lot of product. However, use Argan Oil and a little holding spray if needed. This look is for heart-shaped or even oval-shaped faces. Short layered hairdos are definitely a style for women who don’t have a lot of prep time in the morning.

#50: Bold Short Layered Hair

Bold short layered hair is perfect for women who have thick tresses. The layers on short hair can help soften the shape, removing the feeling of weight and giving more movement to it. Adding a blonde hair color would be a great idea as it enhances its chic style.

Modern Layered Stacked hairstyle
Instagram @hairwizardiva

#51: Messy Layered Stack Cut

Consider a modernized stacked and texturized bob for layered hair. This short and layered hair cut feels so on-trend with its unstructured and messy workable texture creating beach wavy hair. The best thing about this cut is the edgy disconnected layered hair.

Once dry, mist your hair with Davines No Gas Hairspray and comb through before creating flat iron waves. No Gas provides heat protection and an all-day hold for your waves. Then use Davines Invisible Serum (which is a weightless cream) to piece out and define the layered hair waves and calm any frizz.

Layered Shaggy Bob Hairstyle
Instagram @shmoakin_hair

#52: Layered Shaggy Bob Hairstyle

One of the best short layered haircuts right now is a shaggy bob. A layered shaggy bob with a loose curly texture is an effortless cut that’s easy to prep and maintain. Layered and short shaggy bobs have soft interior layers that will still show off the full tresses, but not remove any visible length. To style such cute short haircuts, try Haze by Evo – just add one or two pumps and rub them into your hair to create texture within this short hairstyle.

Short Feathered Black Layered bob for black women
Instagram @sierrashear

#53: Black Short Feathered Bob

Go for a short feathered bob with layers. This short-length hair is a great protective style for women with medium to long hair and takes no more than 90 minutes for full installation. The best thing about this layered style is since your hair is protected, it can be curled/manipulated as much as necessary and there is no heat damage to your natural tresses!

To recreate and/or maintain this look, simply curl with a 1 1/2-inch curler or flat iron along with a rattail comb. It may be necessary to sleep with a satin cap if your pillowcase is not satin. This look is great for the get-up-and-go black woman with layered hair!

#54: Brown Layered Feathered Bob

A brown layered feathered bob is a short layered haircut and perfect for fullness and medium density. Throw in a heavy part on one side and some feathered layers that lay away from your face to give cute short hairstyles a soft sweeping style. Hold it in place with a little medium-hold hairspray and you’re good to go.

#55: Graduated Bob with Blonde Highlights

Short hair styles can look like a graduated bob with blonde highlights, which is a versatile look that can suit any woman of any age or style.  For a more mature age group, the style can be blow-dried into a round shape to give the effect of a short, sleek style that has been shaped and doesn’t require much styling. It’s a fun, modern style that allows the layered hair to feel full.

The layered short hair is incredibly versatile and can be used on any hair type. The style works miracles for ladies with fine hair. As the layered hair is cut into from the back and angled, it creates the effect of thicker hair on the top, creating a more full look rather than long and stringy.

#56: Wavy Choppy Bob with Undercut

If you are looking for a short layered cut, consider a wavy choppy bob with an undercut. Undercuts are a dramatic style and can be cut shaved or left a bit longer for a softer look. The layered waves in the top portion add movement. This super stylish cut would look great on women of any age group, just determine how bold you would like the undercut to be.

#57: Layered Ombre Bob with Beachy Waves

Try a layered ombre bob with beachy waves if you have fine hair and want texture and pops of brightness throughout. The lighter pieces will create instant texture while layers create movement and body, and the illusion of thicker, fuller hair. To protect your hair, prep it with a good heat protectant such as It’s a 10 with Keratin.

#58: Cute Layered Pixie with Bangs for Over 50

A cute layered pixie with bangs for over 50 is a great option for short hair with layers. Short layered haircuts are excellent at softening the look, creating a pixie with bangs that is easily stylized.

#59: Broken Layered Curls

This short and layered hairstyle is the broken curls with the layered bob. You wear this cut smooth and sleek, or in broken curls with a light wave to it. The best way to recreate this look is to use Bedroom.Hair from Kevin Murphy. It’s a moveable wax spray that works as a spray without the stick.

Short Textured Layered Haircut for women over 60
Instagram @liberatedhair

#60: Textured Layered Hair for Women Over 60

Layered short haircuts for women in their 60s like this can be casual or formal. I suggest Mister Fantastic by Evo for styling. Used on wet hair, it adds hold and thermal protection. I also reapply it on dry hair to create texture and shine.

This style is best blow-dried in the opposite direction to how your hair naturally falls to increase the volume and texture. This style is ideal for women with a round face. Swept back off your face, it’s great for women who don’t like their hair to fall on their face. I would not recommend this for fine hair as it removes a lot of bulk from your hair.

#61: Easy Layered Angled Bob for Straight Hair

This is a short layered cut that is angled and has slightly longer layers in the front. I love that it’s a modern take on the classic layered bob hairstyles for short hair and that it’s versatile. This is an easy, low-maintenance layered haircut for short hair. It works for all ages but is especially great for ladies in their 20s-50s. You can play with the styling to make it age-appropriate. It’s a trendy but still a very classic style for layered hair.

#62: Fun & Creative Short Layered Hair

Creative short hair with layers is never out of style. Short-length hairstyles with layers are beautiful on all face shapes, the added choppy layers just make it more fun!

#63: Slightly Angled Layered Hair with Dark Balayage

A slightly angled layered bob hairstyle with texture that has dark color that is a deep brown with an auburn balayage color. With your hair at an angle, it shows off more dimension.

Use a curling iron to create a slight wave to make it playful and show off the short hair with long layers and dimensions. Use Oribe Apres Beach Wave Spray on the outside and Oribe Dry Texturizing spray at the roots to give your hair body. A short auburn look is extremely versatile for most hair types and face shapes. It’s an effortless style that doesn’t require a lot of maintenance, so it’s great for women on the go or for women that don’t like to spend a lot of time fixing their hair.

#64: Soft Layered Bob

Go for a soft layered bob. It has everything that people love about a bob without harsh lines. I love how versatile short hair with layers can be. It can be styled flirty and wavy as in this photo, but can also be worn sleek and smooth.

To recreate this look, you definitely want to start with a light mousse-like Redkin Aerate. Use a 3/4-inch iron to curl strands away from your face, leaving the ends out to give it more of a wave look. Do a little backcombing in the crown with Big Sexy What a Tease spray. Finish the look with a light to medium spray like Big Sexy Spray and Play or Kenra’s medium-hold hairspray. This cut also works with any face shape. Your stylist can customize the type of layering to what your face shape needs.

#65: Very Short Disconnected Haircut with Layers

This conservative disconnected short layered hair cut is one of the best and easy hairstyles for a more skinny texture of layered hair as it appears more voluminously styled up on top of the head.

When styling your very short cut, try Eufora Beautifying Elixers, as well as the Bodifying shampoo and conditioner to help moisturize and add volume. The Eufora Elixer 1 leave-in treatment is a miracle for pre-lightened short hair! To finish, try Eufora Boost for volume and Piece Works for a flexible molded hold.

Textured Inverted Bob hairstyle
Instagram @hairbyquincy

#66: Textured + Layered Inverted Bob

G0 for a very textured and layered inverted bob on short hair with a subtle angle and lots of layers and movement. It’s been styled to have messy loose waves to highlight the textured layers. The best thing about this short inverted bob is how low maintenance it is and the effortless, ‘woke up like this’ look.”

Texturizing products are key to recreating this look. Use a sea salt spray on damp hair before blow drying or air drying. If your hair doesn’t have a natural wave, use a flat iron or curling iron to add some bend to your hair. Short hair that has layers and is medium in texture and density is best for this cut. It works for any face shape, but adjusting the cut to have a steeper angle will be more slimming for rounder faces.

#67: Classy Textured Bob with Volume on Top

A textured short haircut with layers is classic and sassy with an ombre. You can wear this look sleek or with lots of layered volume as it provides you with lots of movement.

When it comes to layers with short hair, it’s important to use products that provide flexible hold. Before blow-drying,  use Pureology Clean Volume Levitation Mist and Clean Volume Weightless Mousse. This combination gives you heat protection and fullness without getting sticky. Short hair with layers looks gorgeous on ladies with strong cheekbones. The cut works best on fine to medium textures but can be personalized to any texture. Expect to spend some time styling in the morning.

Straight Layered Bob with Bangs
Instagram @hairbyhavana

#68: Straight Layered Bob with Bangs

Try a straight, short, and layered haircut that’s very trendy. I love its short choppy layers, soft lines, and flirty movement. A layered bob with bangs hairstyle is a classic with a twist by adding layers.

To maintain a smooth finish, use Savannah leave-in conditioner two inches from your scalp. Also, use a large barrel brush to smooth and straighten. This heavy leave-in conditioner keeps flyways at bay and adds needed protection for flat iron heat.

Triangular Graduated Bob with layers
Instagram @aaronscottlacy

#69: Triangular Graduated Bob with Layers

Go for a short, layered graduated bob with a triangular shape that complements the bone structure.  A very short blunt bob is a classic haircut that meets the modern aesthetic with layers.

I recommend this short layered hair with bangs for women that want to be bold, self-confident, and refined in their sense of style. It’s ideal for the woman who prefers sleek over disheveled. A triangular shape is generally complementary to the face and this cut works especially well with medium/fine hair texture because it builds weight rather than removes it.

Short Layered Crop Cut with Face-Framing Pieces
Instagram @kaya__kaia

#70: Layered Crop Cut with Face-Framing Pieces

A layered crop cut paired with face-framing pieces is a wonderful short haircut to try. The soft, wispy face-framing makes it ideal for women with heart-shaped faces. If you have an oval or round face shape you can rock this haircut as well. To style this haircut I like to use a round brush to blow-dry. Then use a little bit of Redken Rough Paste to add texture, and volume and separate your face-framing pieces.
