Your haircut is a visual projection of your personality, which is why it’s essential to approach your haircut decision by prioritizing your own opinions and preferences. Do you love the idea of yourself with short hair? Does it feel "like you" at this point in your life? Go with your gut on this one, not other people's advice.

Need some inspiration? Looking through photos of celebs, models, influencers, or friends with similar face shapes and cute short cuts will help you “be really clear about what you think that you’re interested in. Then, you can be guided by the professional hairdresser,” says Gibson.

Short Back And Sides

The short spiky hair looks amazingly hot and steamy. So why don’t you give it a try? Primarily, it’s based on the taper cut, which is one of the trendy haircuts with longer top and cropped hair on the sides. Just apply some hair styling product to the crown and create a spiky finish through the edges by twisting some random strands with the fingertips.

We hope that after giving you some cool ideas on how to style short hair men cuts, you’ll manage to decide easily on the hairdos you’d love to try. Having a ton of advantages, short haircuts remain one of the most requested styles. High five if you can’t wait to pull off the look you’ve chosen.

My Hair Style and Story

by Ashlee (Kailua Kona, Hawaii, USA)

Yes, this is MY hair...

Yes, this is MY hair…

When I was a little girl my mom cut my hair really short. Then when I got older I let it grow out. It turns out that my hair is really ugly when it is about short and just plain, no layers or highlights. So then I layered my hair and now it look fabulous.If you like my hair style, post a comment and I will tell you more about how to get your hair JUST like that!

What youre looking for:

If it’s less than two and a quarter inches from your ear to the pencil, green light—short hair (like a chin-length bob) will look great on you. If it’s more than two and a quarter inches, you may want to consider keeping a bit of length (think: a shoulder-grazing lob or longer).

Awesome Hair Style Idea For Summer

by Rosemary J. (Elmwood Park )

I know maybe some of you people out there already do this, but this a unique idea for summer because it gets the hair off of your neck. I recommend this style only for ladies out there whose hair length is collarbone or longer. First of all, spritz your hair hair with some type of spray hair gel (I recommend Herbal Essences Spray Gel) and then brush so your hair looks normal. Grab your hair into a ponytail and put an elastic on it so it is a ponytail (I suggest a slightly high one). Then grab a large clip (one that will be able to hold your ponytail in place) and put your ponytail up on your head (literally grab hold of your ponytail and put up your head). There you go! If you have any frizz or fly-aways from this, spray the hair gel on the problem hair area and rub. This is a sleek easy idea for summer and I hope that you enjoy!!!

Take Baby Steps With Bangs

Still unsure if you’re ready for the big chop? Bangs are an easy way to change up a haircut without having to commit to a totally different length and style. As with short haircuts, there are many different bang variations, each with a different vibe and overall feel.

Fringe-cut bangs can frame your face and give longer hair more dimension. Blunt bangs look ultra-modern and cool, and side-swept bangs feel beachy and add great volume. Let your hairstylist know what look you’re trying to achieve, and be sure to factor in your lifestyle, personality, hair type, and face shape to help you decide on the right cut for you.
