How would you describe this look?

It’s a blunt bob with softly rounded bangs. My favorite thing about this cut is how the bangs follow the outer shape of the eyebrows and connect to the sides in a subtle soft way, narrowing the sides of the face. This cut helps elongate the face as long as you keep enough overall length and the bangs’ shortest point in the middle right above the nose. It’s important to keep the bangs soft by having shattered ends and not extremely blunt.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This cut is a great option for people with square face shapes who wish to go short. Bangs will require more of your time since they will need trimming sooner than the overall cut. If you already have straight hair, it would be extremely easy to style by blow-drying using the curvature of the head, and a flat bristled brush. Always use a heat protector, and you could add some volumizing mousse if needed.

Short Blonde Hair

How would you describe this look?

This is a textured, asymmetrical, longer pixie with a shaved undercut on one side. I love this short haircut because it has enough length to get to creative with styling. You can still put a few wavy curls in or braid the bangs, but it has enough edge and funk that a quick blow-dry alone would give a show-stopping look.

The color is super fun as well! I leave a little bit of her natural color, which is a strawberry blonde to create a little dimension with the icy blonde color we use!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look would be perfect for the gal who doesn’t mind coming into the salon once every month and a half to get the cut shaped up but only needs a few minutes in the morning to look sassy and fabulous.

I like to use Lanza’s Molding Paste on wet hair to create extra volume and definition for this look. Then I like to finish with Color Proof’s Fiber Blast for added piecyness and texture and a nice, firm hairspray which I like the smell and hold of from Amika, and, of course, purple shampoo from F18.

For Long Face

How would you describe this look?

This look is a modern take on a classic lock. Adding a fringe gives it a little bit of a different appearance versus a traditional one length bob. Also, keeping the perimeter soft and not super hard gives it a very wearable and easily transitioned shape.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I would look at their hairline and see if it has any growth patterns. If so, I would advise blowing dry with a comb back-and-forth to eliminate any sort of growth direction and allow for that fringe to settle in. The idea is to keep the length of the fringe halfway to the perimeter length of the haircut.

This is a very low maintenance shape. As far as products go, I always love a leave-in conditioner spray then cover with a nice, gritty mousse. This will allow for maximum air drying.

This style is definitely for that cool girl. It’s a little short, so it pushes the boundaries of femininity but still allows it to have that soft, wearable vibe.

Long Side Swept Bangs

How would you describe this look?

It’s a ’90s pixie tapered at the nape to create fullness at the crown with longer fringe for versatility and playfulness. My favorite thing is the fringe! The length and airiness of the fringe allow the cut/style to be versatile.

Any advice for someone considering it?

When you consult with your stylist, think about the details, as pixies are built on details (fringe, sideburns, neckline). Short hair requires more salon visits to maintain, so think about your maintenance tolerance. If you have the right attitude, this pixie is for you! Any experienced stylist will be able to customize this pixie to suit your texture and lifestyle!

Short Wavy Hair

Q&A with style creator, Lindsay Jean
Master Hairstylist and Makeup Artist @ Shear Escape Salon And Spa in Saskatchewan, CA


How would you describe this look?

This cut is a steeply angled bob. You’d never guess that she has a full undercut all the way around! I’m obsessed with all the texture – it looks great when worn straight or wavy.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This cut is a real show-stopper, whether it’s worn with the perfect beachy wave or straight. It’s fantastic for clients who have tons of hair since you can do it with a full undercut. It removes bulk without compromising shape and makes it much easier and faster to style since there is less hair to deal with. The sharp angle is striking and looks great on clients with a longer neck. It has an edgy factor!

I used what’s called a “dead curl” when finishing this boho style. The key is to unwind the hair from the iron. And then leave a space of uncurled hair before looping it around the barrel again. The result is a less voluminous curl – the perfect effortless bend to the hair.

This cut can be adjusted for various face shapes, making it versatile and an option for anyone!

How would you describe this look?

It’s a platinum undercut pixie. I love that it is fun and sassy and that it fits her personality. It’s so fun to create this type of style because I get to be creative.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I like to ask what their styling routine is and how much time they are committed to spending daily. I also like to make sure they can come in regularly for haircuts. My fave styling products are Unite Expanda and Liquid Volume, as well as Colorproof Crafting Pomade. Buying the products I recommend will support the style.

Master Stylist/Color Specialist @ Sideburns & Stilettos The Barberlon in Jacksonville, FL


How would you describe this look?

This look will give you the best of both worlds. The cool edge of the short side and tapered back while the longer side adds a touch of softness to the overall haircut.

There are lots of layers to add volume, movement, and create texture, giving different options for styling. The hairline at the back tapers into a V-shape at the nape, which has to be my favorite part of this cut.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Short haircuts like this one are customizable for almost any face shape! The longer side gives a face-framing effect depending on the length that it’s cut. I would recommend asking your stylist what length best suits your face shape. With all the layers, you should plan to do some styling to maintain the look.

This cut can be worn smooth and sleek, polished with a flat iron, using a light heat-protectant like Paul Mitchell’s Hot Off the Press, and finish with a drop of serum for shine. If you’re looking for a little more edge, I recommend using a little texture spray like Redken’s Wax Blast 10 or if you have a heavier texture, a paste-like Rewind 06.
