Which short hairstyle gets your vote?

If you're thinking about going shorter with your hair, you'll be glad to know that you have plenty of great options to choose from. Two of our favorite on-trend looks right now are the choppy bob and the short side sweep, but which one do you like best?

Cream of the crop

Textured bobs have been trending for a while now and they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. As far as short cuts go, a messy bob also happens to be one of the more versatile looks to go for because it's so easy to dress it up or down, depending on the occasion.

Styling tip - Get a perfectly piecey finish by scrunching a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends of your hair.

Swept away

If you think half hawks are awesome but aren't quite ready to commit to one of your own, a short side-swept hairstyle is the next best thing. Not only is it a great compromise, it could also help you to decide if you want to go for the real thing and won't take as long to grow out, should you decide against the idea.

Styling tip - Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair and rough dry to create a natural, frizz-free look.
