Go for the chop with these fab short hair styles
Are you wanting a new start? Do you want a completely fresh look? Then one way of achieving this is by cutting your hair. Not only will that short haircut change how you look, but it can also change how you feel about yourself. So, if you're ready to embrace a new you and are willing to chop your hair, then be inspired with the following short haircuts to try this year, based on face shape and hair type.
The absolute best short haircut for this type of face is the short, blunt-edged bob. The square boxed shape look really helps to add structure to the face and can help it appear less round. If you aren't quite brave enough to go ultra short, then add in a few straight layers.
A short haircut can really help to soften the hard jawline of the square face. The pixie cut and a longer length bob with layers, are both good styles to choose. Wispy short waves and a chin-length curly bob also help to soften a square face.
If you are blessed with an oval face then you can pretty much wear any short hairstyle. You can quite literally go as short as you like, but it's important that you take into account how thick or thin the hair is, and if you have curly hair, as this will help determine the cut.
The trick here is to create thicker looking hair, and this usually does happen once hair has been cut dramatically shorter. One trick is to add layers to the top of your scalp and to make the front of the hair slightly longer.
A cute lob or chin-length bob really suits curly or wavy hair. It's also great to keep the fringe curly for added texture and interest. If you are blessed with curly hair, then anything from chin length through to just above the shoulder will work well.
All of these short haircuts are best achieved with Cobalt Japanese scissors. These scissors easily slice through hair, give that precision sharp cut, and just make life so much easier. Please do browse our website for more inspiration.
