#1: Short Straight Pixie with Straight Bangs

A short layered pixie haircut with straight bangs is complementary to a straight hair texture. Style the crown layers and bangs with a small round brush for volume. Apply a root lifting spray before blow-drying for additional height at the root.

#2: Sleek Middle-Parted Neck-Length Bob

If you’re thinking of an edgy haircut for the summer, consider the sleek middle-parted neck-length bob. A chic and sophisticated look, this is perfect for the woman who wants to highlight her facial features without too much attention going to her hair. For best results, flat iron smaller sections with a light serum to ensure consistency.

#3: Short Haircut with Longer Top

This short haircut is short and tight on the bottom and sides with length on top of the head. Style the front to the side and away from the face for a feminine finish. Oval face shapes with hair that is medium in texture and in density will suit this hairstyle.

How To Style:

  1. Apply a styling product to wet hair.
  2. Blow dry the hair smooth with a styling brush.
  3. Apply thermal protection to hair.
  4. Smooth and polish the hair with a flat iron.
  5. Apply a product for texture.

#4: Short Straight Very Dark-Toned Hair

If your hair is short, straight, and very dark, think about getting a bob cut that has a blunt weight line. This haircut adds fullness and depth to your hair while maintaining a sleek and polished look. Light texturizing reduces the weight of your hair and stops it from looking flat or lifeless. When you go to your hairstylist, ask about hair products that will make your haircut look great every day.

Short Undercut Bob with a Tapered Nape for Straight Hair

#5: Undercut Bob with a Tapered Nape

Ask about an undercut bob with a tapered nape. When you go short, it can be hard to decide if you should taper the back or make it a little longer layered style. For thicker hair, undercuts, and a tapered look work well. They get rid of some bulk while giving your style a classic look.

#6: Short Feathered Bob Cut

Here’s a short, feathered bob cut with a soft texture. Ideally, this is a great shape if your hair is fine but thick. If you want to explore shorter hairstyles, a bob is always a great way to start! It’s a safe bet because you can always preserve length around your face and create a soft face frame. Ask your stylist to incorporate dry texturizing to keep the shape soft and wispy.

#7: Wispy Short Bob Cut

A wispy short bob cut is effortless and cool. This is a great haircut for someone looking for a low-maintenance style. My favorite thing about a textured bob is the ability to air dry your hair with minimal effort and a single styling product. One of my favorite air-dry hairstyling products is Bumble & Bumble’s Don’t Blow It (Fine).

#8: Short Straight Asymmetrical Bob

A short straight asymmetrical bob is a fun twist on a classic bob. Short asymmetrical bobs are usually longer on one side than the other but have the ability to look symmetrical just by parting differently. By leaving the fringe longer and not blending it into the back you get a funky, fun profile. It’s like blending two haircuts into one. Blunt into wispy.

#9: Silver Pixie with Curtain Bangs for Women Over 50

Silver hair is gorgeous. If you were lucky enough to be born with this color that’s incredible. If not, maintaining a color like this requires a lot of regular trips to the salon. You will never be able to keep this color this tone without the proper at-home products. So be sure to ask for what’s best for you.

#10: Short Straight Hair with Bangs

Short straight hair is an elusive style that breathes mysterious yet feminine taste. To style, blowout gels like Redken’s Big Blowout will help to block out the humidity and hold the style in place while adding bounce and an alluring scent.

#11: Short Brunette Pixie

Go for a short brunette pixie on thick hair. Ask your stylist for an undercut to give you a nice shape. Undercuts also take away some underneath weight from thicker hair. I suggest getting a razor or slide scissor cut for added piecy texture.

#12: Short and Precise Hair

Straight hair with curtain bangs that are precise. Plus, the metallic silver is amazing! For this look, it’s really important to have a product that helps you smooth your hair for a straight look. It’s important to work in thin sections of hair to get your hair as straight as possible.

#13: Copper Straight Hair with an Undercut

One of the best ways to de-bulk your thick hair is to opt for an undercut! It helps to remove weight and it works best on my clients, with naturally straight hair. Want to take it a step further this season? Consider a copper hair color to really jazz up the short hairdo. It can range from golden copper to red copper depending on your complexion and preference.

#14: Sleek Jet Black Hair with Choppy Fringe

Try straight hair with a choppy fringe for a classy style with an edgy twist. Jet black is best on darker and warmer skin tones, but lighter and cooler skin tones may feel “washed out.”

#15: Short Pink Pixie

Short straight hair can be transformed into a pixie cut that’s chic edgy one! Pink hues offer a cool contrast and complement fair skins beautifully.

#16: Sharp and Edgy Straight Hair

Short straight hairstyles like this are sharp and edgy. It is such a trending length at the moment. It’s a perfect length for most women as it’s still long enough to throw up and style straight or wavy.

#17: Short, Feminine, Fun, and Friendly

This textured cut is for a rectangular face shape and for someone who has a busy lifestyle and doesn’t want to spend too much time styling their hair. The back is cut short and left the front and top area longer. It can be styled with a straightener for a sleek look or in classic pin curls for an elegant night out. Visit the salon every five to six weeks to maintain the shape.

#18: Feminine Grey Pixie

This haircut proves short hair can still be feminine. This style needs to be cut every six to eight weeks to keep the shape. If you have a round face, just leave some soft strands of hair around the face. If you have a rectangular head shape, we can cut more of a bang that can “fall” down.

#19: Universally Fierce

Hair that’s short and straight is universal, trendy, and edgy. It demands respect and is very fierce. This hairstyle is great for on-the-go lifestyles because minimal styling is required, especially for fine to medium hair. Someone with more coarse textured hair may have to manipulate the hair with hot tools to get a more smooth look.

#20: Short, Soft & Bouncy

This short haircut is based on Vidal Sassoon’s classic bob. Using the classic bob as the overall shape for this cut, your stylist can add layers while shaping the bob. This creates the softness and adds much more movement around the outline and surface than the classic bob. It gives the effect of a lighter weight with added volume.

#21: Straight Pixie with Length

Consider a straight pixie with length if you’re a pixie cut lover because it’s super short and cleaned up on the sides and back, but still has length to play with on top and in the bangs. This allows for versatility with styling, depending on how you’re feeling that day. The best thing about this look is the longer and lighter bang. It gives this simple pixie cut an edge and a little excitement with the highlights!

#22: Unicorn Bob

Check out this unicorn bob. My favorite thing about it is that it makes her so happy! Color has the power to do that. If you want to feel confident, do it! Try a fun and creative color that suits you and your personality.

#23: Stacked A-Line Bob

This is a stacked A-line bob on short hair. The best thing about this type of cut is that it looks great on anyone and works with well with most hair types. If cut properly, you shouldn’t have to do much for the style. It works well for people with thick or thin hair and gives every hair type great volume! Round brushing will be your best friend with this haircut, but you don’t have to round brush the whole thing. Get it 80% dry, then go in the right size round brush and do the back, bottom and top layers for smoothness, volume and hold.

#24: Versatile Asymmetrical Cut

This is a short-length asymmetrical haircut. What I love most about this haircut is its versatility. Women can wear this sleek and radiant as shown, or even wear it naturally curly. Opt for this cut if you want something fun and different that would match your confident personality.

#25: Easy Short Hair for Women Over 60

Opt for a short, fun, trendy, easy-to-do, versatile cut if you’re a woman over 60. A bob haircut and style is great for the on-the-go woman who loves to have fun and be trendy. Ask your stylist about your head shape. When it comes to head shapes, there are always things we as stylists can tweak to hide or accentuate different shapes.

#26: Short Textured Bob

Consider a short textured bob with angles and dimension. The clipper cut through the nape reduces styling time and the texture helps with dimension throughout the style, while also making it easier to achieve volume and movement. Women with finer-textured hair would be perfect for this look, but this can also be achieved on someone with thicker hair as well.

It’s great for anyone who is looking for a unique change within a short hairstyle, or anyone who may be looking into enhancing strong facial features.

#28: Blunt Cut With Textured Bangs

This look is very sleek with an edge. You can easily texturize with some product and make it look kind of modern/edgy, or just leave it sleek and professional! My favorite part about this cut is how full it can make fine hair seem. It is just a blunt cut with textured bangs, but add some texture and it will look very full!
