Taking the plunge and cutting your hair is undeniably liberating. That’s why many women are reaching for the scissors and chopping to their heart’s content. There is something about above-the-shoulder hair that screams sexiness, and you’ll understand exactly what we mean when you see the gorgeous hairstyles featured in this article.
Short and Sexy Bob
When the bob hit the scene, it took the beauty world by storm. The style’s appeal comes from its short and flirty length that is easy to play with and a breeze to style. Sporting an angled cut with long face-framing pieces is both stylish and wearable. But what people love most about bobs is the fact that they are effortlessly voluminous. With choppy layers that fall just right, thin hair looks thick and full and requires little to no daily styling.
The pixie cut is super-hot, as it showcases your face and shoulders for a sultry vibe. Long gone are the days when long locks were the only way to be sexy, and this short haircut is the proof.
When a pixie cut features curls, it takes on a flirty and girly air that looks cute and fresh. When you're looking for a new and edgy summer do, go with a pixie cut and add a few curls – soon you’ll see how much freer you feel without all that extra hair weighing you down.
No matter what length of hair you have, a pixie cut is easy to achieve. All you need is a trusted stylist that's ready and willing to give you the pixie of your dreams.
Note: If you don’t want to go the professional route, you can DIY, but a stylist can help ensure that you achieve the perfect look for your face shape and style.
Teeny Weeny Afro
The afro is always in, and many think the bigger the better. But even though teeny weeny afros (TWAs) are tiny, they still make a huge statement. Instead of using hair to frame your face, this look reveals your face shape and features better than any other cut. It's bold and daring, but also sweet and simple.
No matter what curl type you have, you can rock a teeny weeny afro.
Short Cut with Curly Bangs
Bangs have a spotty rep - you either love them or you hate them. But after looking at the image above, we think all will agree that bangs can be super chic. Short hair paired with curly bangs works wonders for the face, accentuating all the right features. When cut to the perfect length, bangs have a way of intensifying the eyes and playing up the cheeks. Short hair with bangs is a staple look that's simple to maintain and opens the door to tons of style opportunities.
We encourage you to try one of the above styles to take your hair game to the next level. But above all, we hope that we have inspired you to have fun with your short hair!
