Which short haircut gets your vote?

Are you thinking about getting a short hairstyle? If so, we have two textured looks to inspire you: a short bob and a messy pixie haircut.

The big question is, which one do you like best?

Wavy bob

A short, wavy bob is a cropped hairstyle that shows off plenty of natural texture, and can be tailored to look flattering on every face shape. It's easy to maintain, and it looks great both with and without bangs.

1/ Styling tip

To define natural waves and curls, apply Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp hair, then allow it to air dry naturally if you have time. If not, use your blow-dryer with the diffuser attachment on a medium heat setting.

Messy pixie cut

Not for the fainthearted, pixie cuts don't leave much hair to hide behind, but they do make one gorgeous beauty statement. Not only that, there's less hair to take care of, so washing, drying, styling and general maintenance won't take nearly as long as with a lengthier haircut!

2/ Styling tip

Create the perfect bed head texture - i.e. deliberate-looking - by scrunching a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum evenly throughout. Twist and tousle individual pieces of hair until you're happy with how mussed it is, then gently shape with your hands to finish.
