Before diving head-first into this trendy chop, arrange a consultation with a professional. Talk to your stylist and let them evaluate your hair texture and type.

What’s great about a chin-length cut is it can make your hair look fuller. According to stylist Cristina Ruso of Miami, FL, “It’s a great option for thin hair as it adds body and shape. But for thick hair, it requires blending, texturizing, and removing weight, so it moves freely.” Thus, a short haircut can be a drawback for a thicker mane as it may need more maintenance than expected.

Remember, short hair is a commitment. Don’t forget to discuss your preferred look and maintenance goal with your stylist. If you’ve been looking for wash-and-go styles, you’ve reached the right place. Check out these images of the trendiest low-maintenance chin-length haircuts to try next!
