Girls, there’s so much interesting going on in the world right now, that you simply can’t waste your precious time on painstaking hairstyling routines… A way out is a chic short haircut that looks pretty cool even after the trivial ”scrunch and go” styling. Whether you’ve dropped in to upgrade your usual cut or want a more drastic change like going from medium/long to very short, you’ll find a bunch of cute ideas below: fun edgy bobs, bold pixies and the loveliest boyish cuts are all here. Fancy taking a look?

Trends of Short Haircuts for Girls 2023

– 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 as edgy as ever, they feature the seamless transitions between layers.

Female mullets of the above-the shoulder length are as popular as their longer versions this season. 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.

– Trendy shaggy pixies hairstyles are good for girls with big eyes and small noses, while strong facial features become even more pronounced with such haircuts for girls.

Bowl cuts are also on, but note that they don’t flatter women and girls with a strong jaw line.

Short Crop Ideas for Chic, Vibrant Looks

See the images below and enjoy!

1. Multi-Colored Pixie Cut

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. Choppy Bob for Fine Hair

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.

3. Blonde Layered Crop

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. Highlighted 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. Edgy Bob with Shaved Side

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. Short Boyish Hairstyle

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. Curly Top with Etched Side

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. Platinum Buzz Cut

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. Bold Undercut for Fine Hair

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.

10. Two-Toned Hairstyle

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. Side-Swept Pixie Cut

One of the best things about girls short haircuts is that they are incredibly easy to style. A semi short pixie cut like this can be swept to the side with wax for a carefree day-time look, or straightened for a sophisticated evening hairdo.

12. Girls Messy Layered Style

Ruffled choppy layers can create a model-esque look with minimal styling. Push the hair forward for a dramatic effect that shows off the short hair at the back. Alternatively, tuck the hair behind your ears for a slightly messy mane that’s suitable for work.

13. Modern Purple Mullet

The term mullet may not have you jumping for joy, but it can be pulled off in a completely new way. The short sides and long top here create a great contrast of neat and rebellious. Add a sultry purple color and spiky styling, and this becomes a truly fun and edgy look.

14. Short Messy Bob

You might think that short haircuts for girls look rather severe, but they can just as easily be soft and feminine. Choppy layers in a delicate hue can frame the face as well as soften strong features. Add a few subtle highlights to complete the look.

15. Ginger Pixie-Bob

Anyone who’s had short hair before knows the difficulty of growing it out without looking like a scarecrow. This pixie-to-bob transition is aided with a few short top layers to help distribute the hair’s weight. Brightly colored hair also distracts from any unevenness!

16. Vintage Cropped Curls

Ladies’ short hairdos certainly don’t have to be boyish. With a few strategic curls, you can create a vintage style that’s both eye-catching and feminine. Use mousse to add volume around the crown of your cut and to loosely secure the curls around your face.

17. Super Short Fringe and Sides

Short haircuts for girls with oval-shaped faces look especially good with short bangs. A style boasting cropped front and sides will highlight your best facial features, while keeping some length on top will allow you to have fun with spikes or crunched layers.

18. Stacked Platinum Wedge

Modernize the wedge cut with a silver shade and a steep slant from back to front. To make the style a little less severe, add textured layers. Show off the sharp shape with super straightened locks.

19. Asymmetric Rainbow Pixie Cut

Is there anything cooler than an asymmetrical pixie cut with metallic rainbow colors? We don’t think so! This unique hairstyle has tons of personality without being overly bizarre. The only catch is it takes both the cut and color maintenance to keep it looking great.

20. Girls Buzz Cut

The most dramatic of the short girl haircuts is the female buzz cut. Achieving this look can be as simple as shaving off your hair, but a slight fade will make this a winning edgy look. Unsurprisingly, no styling is required, just bags of confidence!

21. Silver Pixie Quiff

For those who want short hair but plenty of height, meet the pixie quiff. The short back and sides create a stunning contrast with the long locks on top. You’ll need a little back-combing and lots of hairspray, then you’re good to go!

22. Choppy Graduated Pixie

At the top of the list of our favourite short snips is the graduated pixie. What makes this cut particularly interesting is the use of different lengths and angles. If you want a haircut that shows off your artistic side, this is perfect.

23. Girls Undercut with Sweeping Fringe

Boyish haircuts don’t have to be short all over. An undercut is a great way to model a buzzed look without losing too much length. Pair it with a sweeping fringe that starts from the crown of your head to exhibit the contrast of lengths.

24. Sophisticated Long Pixie Cut

This haircut is longer than most pixie cuts, but the shortness around the ears still gives it that cute elfin effect. Lighter colors on the top of the hair show off the short layers at the back as well as the long bangs at the front.

25. Pastel Pink Bob

The bob is a timeless hairstyle that we’ll never get tired of. Mix it up with your favorite color, though, and you’ve got a completely new look. Pick a pastel shade and a feathered fringe to keep the style soft and feminine.

26. Pixie Cut with Long Bangs

Girl short haircuts are often completed with long side bangs, and this style is no exception. Make your fringe your statement piece by letting it stand out from the rest of your cut. As you can see, even an extra inch of length makes all the difference.

27. Undercut with Contrasting Colors

You can easily spice up a short bob haircut with an undercut. Shaving one temple and the nape of the neck will completely transform your haircut. This style is also a great way to utilize a contrasting two-tone hair color solution.

28. Denim Blue Layered Bob

Somewhere between a pixie and a bob, this unusual haircut oozes all the sass of a shaved style with the femininity of a longer look. The bright hair color gives it an almost anime-esque effect, and the length also really highlights the cheek bones.

29. Textured Bob with Highlights

Cute short haircuts for girls can have a hidden twist. If you have thick hair, you can cover an undercut beneath a textured bob to make it less heavy. Highlights and lowlights will draw more attention to the style.

30. Blonde Layered Pixie Cut

Girls with curly or wavy hair can sport this boyish pixie cut with ease and pleasure. Cropped locks will naturally show off the short choppy layers and create an interesting texture. A handful of wax will perfect the look and tame any disobedient strays.

31. Asymmetrical Bob for Brunettes

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)

32. Blonde Razored 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!

33. Voguish Pixie Cut

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.

34. Short 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.

35. 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…

36. Edgy and Textured Haircut

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.

37. 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.

38. Disconnected Pixie Style

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.

39. Graduated 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!

40. 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.

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.
