#1: Going Gray
A choppy bob style is very popular right now, same as this trendy hair color – many young women are opting for gray and white hair hues. Blame it on Queen Elsa or perhaps the impressive wisdom of someone’s very influential grandmother – but ultra-light hair is all the rage in color trends – would you expect?
#2: Adorably Choppy and Blonde
This cut is perfection! Flattering for a variety of face shapes, this style is oozing cool girl chic. For short choppy hairstyles that hit their mark, ask your stylist for piecey, unkempt layers and carefree highlights with natural appeal. This cut is just long enough to make for endless styling options.

#4: Choppy Pixie Cut
While long hair can rack up your hours in front of the mirror holding styling tools, short hair will increase your budget for new styling products. It’s a fair trade! Not quite wake-up-and-go, these itty bitty layers are as close as it gets. Work with your hair’s natural texture to create post-shower definition.
#5: Choppy Style for Fine Hair
Choppy haircuts work for any hair type, even fine hair. Extra layering adds the illusion of thickness. A professional stylist can shape fine hair into a punky style with tons of dimension. Women with thinner hair are used to shampooing it often, and with a super short style, frequent washing and styling isn’t too time-consuming.
#6: Straight Cut Bob with Finely Chopped Layers
One of the sassiest and most straightforward hairstyles for women with short locks is the straight cut bob. If you want a softer, more natural-looking appearance, ask your hairdresser for finely chopped layers and the balayage.

#10: Shortcut to Sass
This haircut is filled with choppy layers that work well with today’s tousled look. For girls who like to have fun, this style can be dyed a modern gray or very light blonde. Pair it with pierecings or some ink and you have just jumped aboard a rebellious take on the traditional short hair beauty.
#11: Frosted Choppy Haircut

#25: Undercut Pixie with Long Crown Layers
If the boyish tapered pixie isn’t quite the hairdo for you, you could try the undercut version with long crown layers. It looks uneven in places, but that’s all a part of the charm!
