A short haircut can be convenient. Your hair stays out of your way when you are running around after the kids, and you don’t have to worry about it tangling or getting caught around small fingers. Yet, you may get bored with the same short style day after day. Change up your look by trying a new and exciting but still quick and manageable style.
Try a bob whether your hair is curly, wavy or straight. The bob is a flexible hairstyle. It can be as short as chin length or go almost to your shoulders. With a handful of bobby pins, you can sweep the front of bob off your face, leaving the back to hang down. You can also gather up the back of the bob with barrettes and leave bangs in the front. Play with the position of your part to achieve different layers. Part your hair to the side one day to give your bob an uneven, jagged edge. Part in the center another day to even out the length.
The Pixie Cut
If you are the type of woman who does not like to spend much time on her hair, but you still want it to look good every day, the pixie cut may be the hairstyle for you. Pixie cuts vary in length and style. You can get a cut that leaves bangs or curls in the front but is cropped close to your head in the back. Styling a pixie cut is quick and simple. Dry your hair and run a bit of styling gel through it with your fingertips if you want a tousled look. If you want a neater look, comb your hair smooth and part to the side.
The Mini Pony Tail
Just because your hair is short, doesn’t mean you can’t wear it in a pony tail. If your hair is an inch or two below your chin, pull it back into a pony tail. Leave any shorter front layers loose so that they gently frame your face. You can also pull all your hair off your face and wrap it into a small, messy bun. The bun will make it look like you have more hair than you do and will also give you a casual, relaxed, yet still pulled-together look.
