Updated on August 10, 2016

Short Hair Styles

Short hair styles are making a huge comeback! Short hair is fun, modern, playful and super sexy!

Stars like Rihanna, Emma Watson, Keira Knightley and the beautiful Halle Berry are just a few of the celebrities wearing short hair now.

If you are ready to go short and are looking for a great new hairstyle to wear, here are some new sexy short hairstyles that you can wear to grace your beautiful face.

Look through the short hair styles magazine and get some ideas for your own hair. There are lots of pictures of Celebrities with short hair styles.

Celebrity Short Hair Styles

When you see your favorite celebrity with a short hair style. The first thing you think is, I want that cut! Then you wonder if you can pull that cut off like she can. Stars like Halle Berry, Katie Holmes, and Keira Knightley are getting their hair cut very short and you can too. If you ask for the right hair cut and learn the right technique to style it, it can work for you too.

If you don't have time to style your hair and you want a short cut, choose a style that you wont have to use a blow dryer and a brush. It takes time to get it to look like your favorite celebrity short hair style. The best choice for an easy no styling required cut, is the pixie. You don't have to do much at all if it's cut properly.

Emma Watson Short Hair - The Pixie


To get Emma's look. Ask you stylist to cut a pixie hair cut. This is a very easy style if you have small features. There really isn't much to styling it. You can add a little barrette like Emma did in the photo to give it a glamorous look!

Ashlee Simpson Short Hair - The Layered Bob


For Ashlee's style, ask your stylist for a chunky layered bob. When you style this hair style you will want to blow dry with a vented brush and then use a flat iron to finish it. Then use a spray wax like Sexy Hair Short Sexy Hair Play Dirty Wax to piece it out.

Katie Holmes Short Hair - Classic Angled Bob


For Katie's Style Use Texturizing Hair Spray - Also recommended - Use smoothing serum

Katie's look is a classic angled bob. This style is so cute on most face shapes. To style this, use a round brush and make sure you section it while blowing it dry. Finish with some anti frizz serum like Paul Mitchell's Smoothing Super Skinny Serum.

Keira Knightley - Tousled Sexy Short Layered Cut


I love this look! Tousled and sexy. To get this look, have your stylist cut it in a short layered style. To style use a blow dryer and just tousle it with your hands. Use a molding paste like Di Fi Destruct Molding Cream and just apply it throughout until you get that messy look. This one can also be referred to as a longer pixie cut.

Rihanna Short Hair - Longer Pixie with Volume


This one is also a pixie style with the top left longer, but style this one with gel and a round brush to get the volume and the smoothness. Then apply styling cream to piece it where you want it. Finish this one with lots of firm hold hair spray.

Short Hair Styling Tips

When you get your new short style, talk to your stylist about how to do your own hair. Ask what you can do at home to keep it looking fabulous.

If you are too shy to ask, here are a few great tips to do at home.

Tip #1 - Always use a professional shampoo and conditioner. Professional shampoos are formulated to make our hair look it's best. They have the finest ingredients and do not have harsh chemicals that can damage and dry out your hair.

Tip #2 - After shampooing and conditioning your hair, make sure you rinse thoroughly. I know it sounds so simple but you would be surprised how many people leave residue of shampoo and conditioner in their hair and leaving the residue can cause unnecessary weight to the hair and can leave a film on the hair.

Tip #3 - Towel dry very well. When you towel dry your hair correctly, it will cut the drying time in half.

Tip #4 - Apply styling product to your damp hair. Use a gel or a mousse to create control and volume. You may also use a smoothing serum to tame the frizz.

Tip #5 - Use a round brush or a vented brush and a quality blow dryer when styling your hair. Have an idea of which direction you want your hair to go and start to section your hair (even if its short) start from the bottom and work your way to the top in small sections using the round brush. Wrap your hair around the round brush and pull from the root out. Do this is a fluid motion, to get the most volume, put the dryer nozzle on your wrapped hair and follow it through to the end. Do this several times in the one section until it is completely dry. Then move to the next section.

Tip #6 - After your hair is completely dry. Use your finishing styling products. Using a styling product is one of the most important things you will do when your hair is short because it helps you mold and separate your style into a masterpiece! Have fun with your styling products. When applying molding paste make sure you use just a little and emulsify it into your hands first before you start to piece it out.
