Which short hairstyle do you like best?

If you're looking for short hairstyle inspiration, you're in the right place because we have two gorgeous cropped looks for your consideration: a short bob with long bangs and a messy pixie haircut. The question is, which one would you be more likely to try?

Short bob

A short bob with bangs frames the eyes beautifully and can be tailored to look flattering on every face shape. It's easy to maintain, and long enough to create a few different looks with, including pomps and swept back styles, so you need never be bored with it!

1/ Styling tip

Apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream to damp hair. This will help to smooth the cuticle as the hair dries.

Messy pixie

Pixie cuts don't leave much hair to hide behind, but they do make a standout beauty statement. They look great with disheveled, undone textures and are generally very easy to take care of, so washing, drying, styling and general maintenance won't take nearly as long as with a lengthier style.

2/ Styling tip

Create the perfect bed head texture by scrunching a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum evenly throughout. Twist and tousle individual pieces until you're happy with how mussed it is, then gently rake your hair into place with your fingertips to finish.
