Short Straight Hairstyles

A short straight hairstyle is the kind of hairstyle you'd wear to almost any laid back occasion or outing. These hairstyles can vary from top-heavy one length looks, to sliced razor cuts, short layers, and extremely short crops. Short straight hairstyles are nice and quick to create - but that doesn't mean they look shabby. These hairstyles are great for improving your hair's condition since dead ends are cut off on a regular basis. They're also quick and easy-to-do, and for a small amount of effort you can look great with a hairstyle that lasts all day long.

Short Wavy Hairstyles

A short wavy hairstyle is almost self styling, requiring very little effort from home to reproduce. Some techniques you might like to try are simple things like ruffling, finger drying, and scrunch drying. On naturally wavy hair textures, casual short wavy hairstyles are great because they allow your hair to take on its own growth patterns since eliminated weight encourages more body, bounce and waves. They're also quick and easy-to-do, saving you valuable time.

Short Curly Hairstyles

A short curly hairstyle can be described as soft, natural and carefree. These hairstyles include very short 'wash and wear' layered looks, messy uniform layer cuts and top-heavy layers with short graduated bottoms. When curls are natural or even artificial (permed hair), short casual curly hairstyles are quick to create since the curls and cut determine the shape the hairstyles form. Styling generally requires some product - typically liquid gels in various forms and strengths - to keep the hair settled and styled. Curls have a soft look about them due to their curved nature and soft appearance to the eye. The short length of this hairstyle can also be a blessing because weight and frizz can be controlled and eliminated on thick, coarse, unruly hair types.

Short hairstyles look flattering on almost everyone, and whatever your preference, our short hairstyles gallery from the top hair salons around the world will inspire you to try on some great short hairstyles that are trendy and versatility. So check out our hairstyles below, try on over 280 short hairstyles and see which one suits you best!
