Modern Short Hairstyles

Updated on August 19, 2017

Short hair on women exudes confidence. It's also easy to take care of. Choose from these various hairstyles to find one that fits your own unique personality. Bobs can be curly or choppy, while pixie cuts can be messy or sleek. Keep your haircut one length if you want to grow it out later or choose lots of layers for a more trendy look. Be inspired by these celebrities and models as you search for a cut that will carry you stylishly through 2013 and beyond.

      ytsenoh: Yes, even though a haircut is trendy, it doesn't mean it will look good on you. You have to consider several factors first (as you described). Thanks for your insightful comment!

      Good hub on hair styles, indeed. I think it's interesting how you see a hairstyle, and you want it, but then you have to consider if you have the proper shaped face for it, or do you have thick hair, thin hair, etc. I do like how short hair is easier to manage when you're getting ready for work. Hair with attitude is what I generally like and most days, I put my hair up in a hair stick. I really liked all your images you included. My hair 's been long most of my life. I think it's great when someone can connect with a salon who actually knows what they're doing and can look at the shape of your face and know what will look good on you instead of just saying, "what do you want?" because what you want may not be right for your face.

      Like, for example, have you had yours as short as Michelle Williams's, above? so you think really short hair is daring and fun; would you call Michelle Williams's really short and daring?

      Blessings.

      Thanks! Really short hair is daring but definitely fun.

      Cute collection of styles. I've only worn my hair very short once. That was an interesting experience. Fun, though.

      Okay, ty. I don't think GI Jane's was completely shaved, anyway, just suitable for the army. Great hub, anyway. I guess your plugs soon won't fit, then, and it's back to earrings instead... Take care.

      f: No, I wouldn't ever shave my head. I let my stretched ears grow in. That's okay; I welcome any questions. I just may not always have time to reply to every comment right away.

      Well, I see. Like you said, 'pixie cuts can be messy or sleek'; do you have a preference? So you have had really short hair and liked it; you seem like you're a confident person anyway, but you're right as well when you say: 'Short hair on women exudes confidence'. Maybe you'd not go as short as GI Jane, but maybe something like Annie Lennox instead? Of course, if you go like Annie Lennox or a pixie, it would expose your plugs completely, right? I guess it's all a question of gaining and retaining confidence.

      I've had really short hair before and I liked it. I've never had a pixie cut, but I might try it someday.

      Ebower, YW; well I see. Anyway, your hub is about short hair. Do you think you'll ever shorten your bob more?

      f: Thanks for voting! I did get my hair cut recently. It was closer to a bob shape than a pixie one.

      Voted up. You're right about exuding confidence.

      (So, are you going for the chop, too?)

      carol7777: I'm glad you enjoyed this. Many people wish they had curly hair. Sometimes I wish I had it myself. Thanks for reading!

      The hair styles are gorgeous as long as you have good hair. My hair is curly and sometimes unmanageable. Enjoyed looking and dreaming.
