  • Short wavy hair with bangs
  • Choppy bob with bangs
  • Get perfect short hair curls

Short haircuts can be a scary proposition because, until you actually get one, you won't really know whether it will look great, or whether you'll have to spend YEARS growing it out again. If you're seriously thinking about making the cut, the good news is there are some styles that are flattering with any face shape!

1. Wavy with bangs

Somewhere between a long pixie and a shag, this style can be parted wherever you want, the bangs can be pushed to the side or left to fall straight down, and you can wear it with all kinds of different textures.

Styling tip - Scrunch a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends to create a disheveled, piecey finish.

2. Choppy

If you like to wear your hair straight but not too straight, this could be the perfect look for you. It's slightly tousled but can be smoothed out and polished up when necessary.

Styling tip - Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair and rough-dry. This will keep your hair fuzz-free while retaining a lot of natural movement.

3. Smooth curls

For those of you who prefer a more polished look on the regular, smooth chin-grazing curls are a great option. It's a pretty style that can be dressed up or down as needed and it looks great with accessories.

Styling tip - When curling your hair, clip each piece up to cool when it comes off the iron, then finish the look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to set the waves.

Which short cut could you be persuaded to try?
