Which short cut gets your vote?

If you've decided that you want to get a short haircut, but aren't exactly sure what kind of style you want, we have two great looks for your consideration. Both the short side sweep and the classic bowl cut are edgy, on-trend looks, but which one would you try?

Any side you like

The great thing about side-swept styles is that they allow you to show off your favorite features. They also create a great frame for a statement make-up look and are impossibly cool with a wet-look finish. You can also keep a little extra length for a more versatile cut.

Styling tip - Get the perfect side sweep with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty. It'll keep your hair right where you want it and won't dry hard so you can reshape your hair throughout the day.

Make a statement

Bowl cuts are cool again and they're the perfect way to make a memorable style statement. That said, when you want to mix it up a bit, it's easy to dishevel this kind of style to create a long, textured pixie.

Styling tip - To make a gorgeous mess out of a bowl cut, warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum on your fingertips, then muss your hair. Twist and tousle individual pieces, and shape with your hands to finish.

What do you think? Which short hairstyle gets your vote?
