Your Short Hairstyle Questions Answered

Short hairstyles for women are great because they are stylish and super easy to manage. If you are considering getting a short hairstyle for yourself, you should definitely make the plunge! But, don’t hesitate to ask a few questions first. Here are a few of the most common questions we receive about this subject:

What are some face shapes that are complemented by short hairstyles?

You can opt for any hairstyle you want regardless of your facial shape, however, there are some shapes that are more suited for a short hairstyle.

Typically speaking, people that have an oval face can pull off nearly any short haircut they like, while someone with a round face may want to consider an angled bob. Ultimately, the decision is yours and your face shape does not need to decide what hairstyle you choose for yourself.

What are the advantages of having short hair?

One of the biggest advantages is how easy it is to maintain short hair and how quickly you can achieve your desired style. If you’re a busy mom on the go, a short hairstyle will benefit you by being easy to manage and stay out of your face so you have more time to get other things done and won’t need to worry about your hair throughout your daily activities.

Short hairstyles are also good if you have damaged your hair and need to start over.

When is a good time to get a short haircut?

Any time of your choice is acceptable to get a short haircut. The spring and summer  seasons are popular times since the weather starts to warm up and long hair can be difficult to deal with in these cases. Having a short haircut when its warm is a good way to keep hair off your neck and away from your face, preventing you from getting hot.

What are the two main types of short hairstyles?

The two main types of short hairstyles include the pixie cut and the bob. The bob is more of a straight and sleek, single-layer style, while the pixie cut is layered, angled, and can present an androgynous vibe depending on the cut. Short hairstyles branch off of these two styles and variations can arise depending on hair thickness, color, overall style, and texture.
