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.”

#6: Short, Feminine, Fun, and Friendly

Straight short hair is feminine, fun, and trendy. The best thing about it is its versatility.

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.

#7: Feminine Grey Pixie

Short hair can still be feminine because we kept her feminine shape of the head. I chose to color her roots dark and her lengths a very light grey.

I love dimension in short hairstyles to give that extra glow and shape!

Use a salt spray on wet hair and blow-dry with volume in it. Then I use a spray wax around the face and separate some hair to give that more “alive” style.

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.

If you need to wash your hair often (more than every three days), use a gentle shampoo or cream with a low ph to clean your hair. Finish with ice-cold water to help the color last longer!

universally fierce short straight hair

#8: 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.

This hairstyle can be as detailed or as simple as you want, depending on your lifestyle.

Short soft and bouncy straight hair
Instagram @yourfairybeauty

#9: 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.

What I like about this cut is the softness and the movement it creates on the hair. The “just enough” but not “too much” texturizing gives hair the bounce and lightweight effect. It also helps enhance the contrast of highlights on client’s hair.

This cut is great for square or round face shape because it helps to slim and soften those shapes. If you have fine or coarse hair, you can also consider this type of look.

To style, use Aveda Split Ends Repair on the ends for smoothing and repairing. Spray Aveda Texture Tonic all over the top of the hair to help create body and volume with the hair dryer. After drying, us a small amount of Aveda Texturizing Cream to create separation and texture for the finished look.

Overall, this is an easy everyday hairstyle that gives a natural, soft, and bouncy look.

#10: 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!

Don’t be afraid to go short. Pixie cuts last longer when the back and sides are tighter whether your hair is thick or thin. A short cut is low-maintenance in the sense that you can typically wash, blow dry, and go!

Spraying in a texturizing spray pre-blow dry and then using a pomade or paste post-blow dry will give the style texture and movement with very little effort. This type of style is great for a woman with a heart or oval-shaped face.

#11: Unicorn Bob

Q&A with style creator, Shonda Broadus-Jet
Colorist / Stylist @ Color Me Rad in Beaufort, SC

How would you describe this look?

It’s a unicorn bob. My favorite thing about it is that it makes her so happy! Color has the power to do that.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you want to feel confident, do it! Try some sort of fun and creative color that suits you and your personality.

stacked a-line bob for short straight hair
Instagram @shmoakin_hair

#12: 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!

You should know your own hair type.  Not all hair types will be able to easily achieve this much volume, so you may have to work at it a little more than others.

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.

A-lines look great on anyone, the length and what you are comfortable with are the only things that matter. If you aren’t comfortable with your face shape, go longer past your jawline. You can also go as subtle or as extreme as you want with the stack.

There are so many options with this stacked cut, so make sure you take the time to talk with your stylist about what you do and don’t like so they can adjust it accordingly. Take lots of pics of what you do and don’t like about these cuts and enjoy!

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.

#15: Short Textured Bob

Consider a short textured bob with angles and dimension.

If you have extremely straight hair, use Oribe Imperial Blowout before blowing dry. Then use Oribe Rough Luxury Soft Molding Wax before going through with a straightening iron to help give more of a textured look. Also, try Oribe Swept Up at the root to achieve a little more body and texture.

This is a really fun haircut so someone with shorter hair who is looking for something a little different and easy to style. 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. Anything is possible with the right cut and products!

strong disconnection pixie for straight hair
Instagram @jcx28

#16: Strong Disconnection

This pixie haircut consists of many different aspects that deliver a balance between softness and strong disconnection. I particularly love the shaved sides, as well as the movement and depth above the occipital.

Following the occipital bone, I left a soft weight line to form an elegant point in the back of her head. This created a strong shape that complemented her facial features, as well as her bone structure.

I recommend Kevin Murphy’s Angel Wash and Rinse to add moisture without weighing down the hair. For styling, prep the hair while it’s wet with Creme for Style by Oribe to give foundation and hold without leaving a tacky texture.

After blow-drying with your hands to create body and volume, finish with Kevin Murphy Free.Hold. The product is a workable paste that is easy to apply because everyone should love playing with their pixie! Finish with Oribe’s Superfine Strong Hairspray for the final touch.

This haircut creates a very edgy and bold impression. 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.

This look can be created with any hair texture while leaving the client with fun, easy styling maintenance at home.

#17: 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!

If you are looking for fullness, I would use a light mousse on wet hair, some dry shampoo, and/or texture spray. For a sleek look, use a light volumizing spray to make it airy, then finish with a light serum or polish for some shine.

Anyone with a fine to medium hair type would benefit most from this cut. If you have a larger forehead area, the bangs are a good choice.
