Fancy taking a look?
Trends Of Short Haircuts For Girls 2016
- Messy and matte razor-cut shags were sported in the spring shows of Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and Haider Ackermann, to name a few. Although shags of the current season are same edgy as ever, they feature the seamless transitions between layers.
- Mullets of the above-the shoulder length are as popular as their longer versions. If you have fine hair with a light wave and seek for more volume on the top of your head, go for a short-to-medium mullet cut. It’s going to work as a cool self-styling option.
- Bowl cuts are also on, but note that they don’t flatter women and girls with a strong jaw line.
- Short blunt bobs are not going to weaken their leading position in the current haircut trends. Check chic short bobs of Sienna Miller, Rosamund Pike, Kristen Wiig, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Collins, and Kate Mara for inspiration.
Short Crop Ideas For Chic, Vibrant Looks
See the images below and enjoy!
#1: The Mane Attraction
When rocking a short haircut for girls, it can be hard to get creative with such a little length. This is the time to trade in hot tools and scissors in favor of color and texture. By filtering complementary colors of burgundy, orange and golden blonde throughout the front of your hair, you are able to create an interesting look without overpowering your cropped cut.
#2: Into the Blue
Take your next color cue from the deep blue sea, with a hue inspired by sunlight dancing on the waves. Even the Little Mermaid didn’t have such a cool dye job, so get prepared to be the envy of girls who have a less exciting style and hair color. There’s no hiding in the crowd with this look so make sure to pair it with a heavy dose of confidence.
#3: Spunky and Stylish
Incorporate shades of blonde into the dark brown base of your cute short haircut for girls to brighten it up and lend some edge to the long bang. This look also works well for round faces because the side angled bang slims full cheeks.
#4: Fantastic Faux-Hawk
This is the perfect hairdo for young girls who want to experiment with an edgier look, but can’t commit to a full-on style transformation due to school dress codes or parental restrictions. The faux Mohawk is fun style for the weekend, but it can easily be transformed into a more appropriate week day look with a long bang – simply brush it down.
#5: Purple Reign
There’s a reason purple is so popular, it is the color of royalty and it is vibrant while still being in the darker color family. By mixing a pop of violet into your haircut with a really short section, you can break up the black hair color and balance out the shaved design.
#6: Keep It Cropped
Many women cut their hair as a sign of independence or to start over when it has been damaged. Whatever the reason may be, you don’t have to sacrifice style when sporting a short haircut for girls; shift the focus to your beautiful face with a bright swipe of lipstick and bold earrings.
#7: Jagged Edge
Some women weren’t meant to blend into the background and this style is for them. Whatever angle you look at it, there will always be something to make a statement from the wild curls and shaved side to the zig-zag design. It is perfect for a woman working in a creative field like fashion or graphic design.
#8: Model and Muse
If there is one person known for her striking blond shaved head, it is Amber Rose. Luckily, she is also a muse for artists, which means a look like this is sure to have an effect. It is a style that will suit women of all ethnicities as long as they have the tough girl attitude to pull it off.
#9: Double Trouble
There is a misconception that women with bright hair colors or interesting cuts fall into the emo category. But, any woman can pull off a fun and edgy look no matter what her personal style may be. This fiery cute short haircut for girls stands out even more because it is styled with a perfectly matched shade of red lipstick.
#10: Two-Tone Curls
This is an ideal style for black girls with short curly hair because it manages to blend the colors harmoniously into a closely cropped cut. The delicate brown sugar hue near the face and the stunning sunny blonde above the forehead pick up on the warm golden undertones in your complexion to make you look brighter.
#11: The Silver Fox
Gray hair was once a sign of aging, but now silvery strands are a modern way to upgrade your haircut. The pale smoky hue actually serves as a way to make other colors around your face pop. Without a bright or distracting hue on top, it allows for other colorful moments, like your lipstick or shirt, to shine.
#12: Bold Body Waves
Sometimes all you need for a major hair moment is a healthy dose of volume. Don’t fear if your strands are too thin to duplicate this gorgeous curly hair look with a heavy bang; it can still be achieved with the help of added hair. A weave is not just for long locks, it can also be used to get a fuller look with a short haircut for girls.
#13: The Crimson Cut
If you are seeking a full-on hair style transformation, this is the way to do it. Take your uninspired strands from boring to banging with the help of a bold red hue. Plus, thanks to the angled asymmetrical cut and jagged side bang, it’s impossible not to notice this standout look.
#14: Red and Raven
Similar to the picture above, this hairdo takes a more subtle approach to color. By incorporating just a few streaks of color, you can add interest to your hair without drastically changing the overall tone. Try a semi-permanent rinse if you don’t want to damage chemically straightened strands.
#15: Edgy Color Combo
Ladies with thin hair can use dye and undercuts to gain the appearance of luscious locks within their short haircuts for girls. With a dark color underneath, the hair appears denser, and the slight height of the slicked-back bangs prevents locks from looking limp and lackluster.
#16: The Ultimate Urbanite
When you are out and about on the scene, it is important to make sure that you stand out with your cut, hair color or both. This choppy haircut with bangs is trendy and stylish, which will blend well with any look you are going for. A bit lighter brown shade aptly emphasizes the layers within the hairdo.
#17: Flirtatious Flower Girl
Dark thick hair can sometimes look blocky. Use curls and a hair accessory to add texture and a bright pop of color to your coffee-colored locks. Opt for oversized blooms as a bold accent and a great contrast to your hair color.
#18: Marvelous and Choppy
A chin-length short haircut for girls can be spiced with some choppy layers. Spritzing your locks with dry shampoo will give it a messy look and a little bit of extra volume.
#19: Angled Side Bang
Another way to beef up thin straight locks is with a stacked haircut. By keeping the cut super short in the back, you can create volume on the crown and in the front. Highlights are also a great trick to boost visual thickness.
#20: Cute and Classy
A banged bob is nothing ground-breaking, but that doesn’t make it less appealing. This is a classic cut that will work for a variety of hair textures and face shapes.
#21: Sweet Asymmetric Pixie
A light asymmetry and feathery finish are not something extraordinary, but thanks to the gorgeous honey base with golden blonde highlights this haircut turns into a fabulous dimensional style, you’d take a second glance at for sure.
#22: Tapered & Textured Short Bob
Thick hair cropped this way will cause you no inconvenience or maintenance problems. The unnecessary bulk is removed thanks to a tapered silhouette and grading towards the edges. That’s a cool fringy finish I love!
#23: Smooth Buttery Bob
Want to convey your look more tenderness and softness? You easily will with this genuine bob, featuring buttery texture and clean lines. And it doesn’t even use any tricks to appear gorgeous! One side is elongated and angled sharply, while the other hits at her artistically ideal chin…
#24: Neat Bob With Textured Edges
This bob is layered with little graduation towards the ends and complemented with the alluring side-swept bangs textured smartly to dress up the look. Try this attractive jaw-skimming cut for summer.
#25: Sporty Ruffled Cut
Closely cut sides and slightly longer ruffled top draws attention to the face and creates a fun sporty look. Minimal styling time and minimum of styling products are always appreciated by girls on the go. Sporty theme is on-trend this season, so if the style looks right, embrace the idea and reap the benefits!
#26: Creased Pixie
This low cut pixie features fabulous density, moderate volume and cool creasy texture, enhanced with highlights. If you want to look effortless and natural but with zest, this style is yours, definitely.
#27: Wispy Wavy Bob
If not the red lips, soft waves and a classy tuxedo, this ‘do would be referred to as “mousy”. And with a basic chin-grazing bob performed even on fine hair and styled messy, you can create one of the most stylish looks ever!
#28: Voguish Pixie
It’s equally awesome on thick hair and tresses that simply need to appear thicker. Those chunky graded pieces build the right amount of volume on the crown, while the face-framing ends are edged very neatly.
#29: Silky & Edgy
This awesome black cut tinged with blue opts to play with contrasts: plain smooth texture and small jagged fringes look like occasional strokes left nonchalantly with an artist paint brush – a gorgeous haircut to set off the no-less-gorgeous blue eyes.
#30: Sharp Cropped Bob
Have it made heavily layered, cropped and sharpened through the contours. Leave the bangs smooth and gently caressing the forehead to balance the style and place the accents strategically. Tousle the tresses on the crown, and you are hair-dressed to kill!
#31: Adorable Cut For Curly Gals
Short curly haircut is a rarer thing than medium or long cuts for curly hair. Contrary to a common belief it’s not so hard to keep your cropped curls neat and pretty. A dab of curl enhancer to add, and you’ll come up with a gorgeous style like this.
#32: Rounded Bob For Sweet Full Faces
The full model’s face looks thinner thanks to the beautiful side bangs, veiling her forehead diagonally and side pieces sitting close to the sides and covering them partially. The thinned out edges lift the volume up to the level of her eyes.
#33: Steep Bob
Oh, something new in the gallery of asymmetric angular bobs… This one is side parted, elongated on one side and angled steep on the other to reveal your earlobe (just in case you are wearing some cute earrings today:))
#34: Soft Golden Pixie
This light golden pixie with asymmetric bangs and gracefully trimmed temples remains sweet, soft and kind of fluffy in spite of the light styling shagginess. The choice of hair hue and matching earrings couldn’t have been any better, indeed.
#35: Edgy Pixie With Elongated Bangs
The shortened temple and nape areas let shift an emphasis to the messy textured crown with extra-long bangs as the main attraction of this bold sporty look. If you see something special in there, note an idea to upgrade your present pixie.
#36: Playing With Length & Angles
More similar solutions on the same subject: these luxurious long bangs are left smooth and silky, while the remaining sections are chopped pretty short and styled roughly. I love it!
#37: Punk Inspiration
If you want to make your short cut a bit more daring, have the sides shortened in the spirit of challenging punk hairstyles. The two measuring contrasting textures look very showy, especially after you place coloristic accents.
#38: Cropped Curls
The best way to tame unruly curly hair in short styles is cutting it short at the nape, thus lifting the weight to the crown, so that it cascades up front. Luckily, styling it messy for a sexy wet look like this is a matter of minutes.
#39: Extra Short Boyish Cut
When you have a beautiful oval face, feminine facial features and nothing to hide behind the longer tresses, an extra-short haircut with no particular quirks could be your windfall, especially if you are sporty and active.
#40: Cute Cut For Fine Hair
To be in trend and look sexy with fine hair cut short, make an emphasis on the texture and style your pixie or short bob messy. Give it a little teasing at the roots, play with highlights and be confident. That’s all it takes to look irresistible:)
So, how to look your best this season? Good genes matter, but it’s not all about them, luckily. A haircut can boost your natural beauty, draw attention to the deep eyes, bring out the contours of your face and neck outlines or ruin a favorable impression totally. Therefore, choose thoughtfully and trust your beauty only into professional hands.
