We take a look at some great short hairstyles that are cool enough for school.

Heading back to school is the perfect time to try out a new hairstyle, but finding the right look can be hard, especially when there are so many great options out there.

To help you get a new cute hairstyle (or three or four!) we've found some great short 'dos that are trendy, easy-to-style and just made for the classroom.

Beautiful Straight Bob

Short bob hairstyleFor an easy styling option that always looks great, you just can't go past the appeal of a bob! A deep side hair part and a little help from your blow-dryer or hair straightener will re-create this look in no time. For something different you can also try adding curls or waves.


Layered Crop

Layered short hairstyleThis snappy short hairdo is perfect from those who like to flaunt their hair. Sliced layers are needed to achieve this look which is easily styled by taking those great layers and styling them forward across your forehead. The styling is easy and the finished look, simply sensational!


Funky Pixie Hairdo

Short pixie haircutIf you love to just style and go then it doesn't get an easier than this funky pixie hairdo! Some styling wax or hair moulding cream will help you achieve this look. Just remember to style your hair nice and messy to get this funky, bold finish.


Wispy, Full Bangs

Short hair with wispy bangsTo bring your short hairstyle to life, bangs are a great option. These wispy, full bangs make the perfect frame for your face, and the wispiness of the styling adds plenty of softness and piecey texture. Style your bangs forward with some hair moulding cream to copy the look, remembering to separate your hair strands.


Side-Swept Bangs

Short hair with side-swept bangsFor a real touch of femininity to a short hairdo, try adding some side-swept bangs. These fantastic side-swept bangs bring some great focus to the face and are super easy to achieve with your blow-dryer and the right hair brush.
