Here Are Fresh Ways to Style Short Hair

Here are short hair style ideas that will inspire you to chop your hair off.

I’ve always wondered why my mom wore her hair super short when I was growing up. (She actually still wears her hair short till now!) But now that I’m in my 30s and have a daughter of my own, I finally understand. It’s just so easy to not have anything to put into a bun or braid. My hair is quite long now, but I’ve promised myself to get it snipped as soon as I lose some pounds (hehe). So I’ve been looking at cute ways to style short hair. Here are some of the ones I think you’d also like!

The bob

A short hairstyle that always looks chic is the bob.

While this is a short hair style and not really a way to style short hair, I still think it’s worth including in this list. I love the blunt bob. It looks super chic.

Braids

Braids are equal parts cute and chic. I think the fishtail style is even cuter cos it has a bit of boho vibes going on. Definitely bookmarking!

Half up

The half up-do looks chic and super easy to pull off.

But truth be told, I still probably won’t have enough time to do an elaborate style for short hair. So something neat like a half up-do is perfect. The pretty waves are optional, of course. But this lived-in look is something I wish I would wake up looking like once I get the chop.

With barrettes

Barrettes and clips have made a resurgence a few months ago but it looks like they haven’t wound down in terms of popularity. I remember doing this style when I was younger. So I’m definitely going to try it again.

With a padded headband

A style for short hair that doesn't disappoint despite being so easy to do? Using headbands.

Padded headbands are also a thing right now. And with short hair, they look incredibly chic — not to mention quite effortless to pull off.
