Short Cuts for Easy Spring Styles

The long center-parted styles that have been dominating the beauty scene for the past few years will be taking a back seat this spring. This season-long, stick-straight strands are out. You’ll be seeing shorter, curvier styles everywhere as we draw nearer and nearer to summer. These shorter cuts will make styling a breeze and require less maintenance to give you more time to get out and soak up the sunshine.

Messy French Girl Bob
Ready to cut off some old color and start fresh, or simply unburden yourself from long damaged locks? This Parisian-inspired style may be just what you’re looking for. Its cheekbone length with short bangs, textured top, and layering around the face give this French girl bob a relaxed and fun-loving flair. This cut looks amazing with straight and curly strands alike.

Short Shag
If the trendy mullet-like wolf cut is a bit too daring for you, a short shag may be just right. A shag has that same fun-loving feel but is more blended without the stark contrast of short in the front, and long in the back. You’ll want lots of layers descending from the crown for loads of movement and texture. A blunt cut just above the shoulders will keep it from looking too thin or wispy and give you the perfect length for warmer weather.

Pixie With Long Side Bangs
A modern pixie is one of the easiest to style short haircuts. Long side bangs give it a cool and edgy, yet elegant flair. Undercut the side opposite the side bangs for an even more unique look. If you’re looking for a drastic change this is a great look to try.

1930s Vintage
Vintage hairstyles are quickly gaining in popularity. These glamorous short styles are elegant and sexy. Pin curls, finger waves, and victory rolls are among the many styles you will see in this category in varied lengths of pixies, bobs, and lobs. These styles are a great way to capture elements of antiquity in a modern look.
