Wavy Short Bob Hairstyle

A dreamy and flirty short bob is considered to be the most classic short haircut for ladies. If it seems too trivial for your taste, try to style it with soft waves, like one of my favorite YouTubers Stella Cini, who does incredible hair transformations and can easily pull off any existing color from the Pantone palette. You can achieve the wavy short bob hairstyle with a flat iron and your favorite hairspray.

According to Refinery29, the jawline bob haircut is going to be hilariously trendy this year (thanks to the Kardashians, I guess), and that means that my favorite chunky bob has a chance to be in trend as well. No one wears a chunky bob as chic as Demi Lovato. Her hairstylist knows how well these haircuts look on round and square face shapes, therefore frequently picks them for Demi.

A-line Bob Haircut

Still in love with the bluntly cut a-line bob worn by Posh Spice? Then it is time to go back in time and adopt it once again because it is as hot as new! Simply explain, an a-line bob is when the hair is a bit shorter on the back and gets gradually longer towards the face. But, the best thing about an a-line bob, is that this haircut fits every face shape and almost every hair type, so it is a great option for most of us. Just make sure you use good hairdressing scissors if you plan on cutting your own hair or doing it for others.

If all these soft, doll-like styles are not for you, then you should definitely check out asymmetrical bob hair. Sharp as the edge of katana this hairstyle is definitely not for everyone, but with a bit of volume on the crown of your head. Masterfully cut asymmetrical bob will make you feel confident and stylish without compromises. It is also easy to maintain and style, making it perfect for busy women who want a low-maintenance haircut.

Layered bob without any doubt is one of the most popular and trendy haircuts of all time. Layers are cut in various lengths with shorter top layers and longer layers underneath, therefore the final cut appears voluminous and full. You can easily curl your layered bob if you want a more glamorous hairstyle for a special occasion or put it up in a ponytail for a comfy everyday look.

Voluminous hairstyles on shorter hair may seem a tad messy. Unless you aim to recreate the chunky look, you might want to experience the sophisticated side of your short bob cut. For example, you can go for Dua Lipa-inspired sleek hair look. This short hairstyle won't distract from your perfect bone structure and long neck. The sleek and polished appearance of this hairstyle is ideal for professional settings, making it a popular choice among hard-working girls.

Classic Short Pixie Cut

Classic short pixies do a fantastic job accentuating every feature of your beautiful face — it makes the eyes appear bigger, cheekbones higher, jawline sharper, and lips plumper. Another advantage of such short haircuts is that you basically don't need to spend morning time styling your hair. Two minutes to wash, another few minutes to blow dry, and five seconds to fix it in place, and it's done!

Short Pixie Cut With Short Bangs

A short pixie hairstyle completed with short bangs looks freakishly adorable and, at the same time, very unusual. With this hair you can easily rock carefree and effortless 'I woke up like this' hairstyle and look gorgeous any time anywhere. Add some texture around the face to frame it and playful accessories that go with your outfit to complete the look.

Pixie Cut With Shaved Sides

One of the most peculiar things about the shaved side haircut is that it can look both soft and tough, still always stylish. The final impression fully depends on the way you chose to style it: voluminous loops will soften the hairstyle, while smooth and shiny hair will give it more rock-n-roll energy. Ready to step even further with the shaved sides style? Ask your stylist to add an interesting design on the shaved part.

Mushroom or Bowl Haircut

The next haircut, adorably called mushroom cut, gained broad pan-Asian popularity. Its shape reminds me of the top of a mushroom, and that is where it got its name. Despite looking pretty heavy, a mushroom haircut looks the best on thin and fine hair. It adds extra volume and texture to the hair, making it appear thicker and even healthier. However, if you are a lucky owner of thick, luscious hair, check the best hair thinning scissors to help you nail that stylish look without a lot of fuss.
