Ideally, a woman should choose short hairstyles that accentuate the shape of her face. Whether your face is round, long, or heart-shaped, the right short hairstyle can help your to look your best. The following are a few examples.
A bob does a great job of accentuating a round face. It creates the illusion that the face is longer. The height lift that starts at the roots, as well as the side sweep, makes this versatile style suitable for anyone. However, it works wonders for women who have rounder facial features.
Short hair styles can help round faces to look more elongated. The key is choosing a short cut that goes upwards and not outwards. Adding volume at the top of the head while the sides are cut really close helps to create a fantastic looking overall facial shape.
This short haircut works well with women with round faces because the length of the hair allow it to sit just below the jawline. This creates the illusion that the face is longer. Using deep side-parting makes it super slimming.
For women with a long facial shape, a shorter shag hairstyle works well. The long layers hitting just above the chin frames the face perfectly while offsetting the volume on top. Its fabulous shagginess adds tons of dimension and makes this low cut ideal for both day and night, work and play.
For women who have longer faces and pin-straight hair, a flattering short haircut is one with lots of volume on the side and bangs to add a hint of roundness to the face. Women with thick, wavy hair should have their stylist thin it out a little bit to create the desired look.
For women with longer shaped faces and high foreheads, a short haircut with some blunt or side-swept bangs can help to downplay the shape of the face. Whether the bangs are thick or just a few wisps, they can work wonders for transforming the way a woman's face looks and add a youthful softness.
Women with heart-shaped faces and pointy chins can draw attention to and accentuate their eyes with a sexy close cut featuring soft, side-swept bangs. Have your hairstylist trim the bangs vertically and let them stop between the brow and the eyelids. That adds the perfect touch of sexiness and flirtiness every woman wants.
If you have a heart-shaped face and are looking for a bold, stylish, sophisticated look, try a sleek crop. Not for the shy, this haircut will show off your face and attract people's attention. Use a flatiron to smoothen the hair and add a little texturizing cream to create a unique finish.
So you have a heart shaped face and you want a short haircut that will make you look great. For those bold and daring enough to lose some hair length, an A-line bob is the way to go. The strands will graze your jawline, frame your face and soften it. The shorter cut hair towards the back will add to the daring of this dazzling hairstyle.
Breaking all the rules and cutting your curly hair short can soften the look of a woman with a square face. Leave the curls long, but in lots of layers. The back should be very short with distinct layers will add a little spice, while the curls up front will soften the look of your chin. Adding bangs can work beautifully because it's all about layering. Then cut each individual curl while the hair is dry and create a few tendrils that frame and highlight your face perfectly.
If you want a simple, no-fuss, adventurous, short haircut that will take all the attention off the shape of your face and onto your sparkling eyes, high cheekbones and luscious lips, go with a buzz cut. Don't go with a run-of-the-mill buzz cut, add some excitement by having your barber cut a few simple or several intricate geometric designs into your hair. No matter what type of hair tattoo you choose, you buzz cut is bound to turn heads. Are you confident enough for a hairstyle this adventurous?
No matter the shape of a woman's face or the texture of her hair, a short haircut can be extremely flattering. Women can make their haircut look even more attractive by adding layers, waves, curls, light hues and brown, bronze and blond highlights. Short haircuts make women look bold and confident and can help to highlight their attractive facial features. The days when only long flowing hair was considered attractive and feminine are over. Today, women from all walks of life have embraced short haircuts and look fierce with them.
