You may be considering changing your hairstyle to a shorter style. Short hairstyles are very popular because they are super low maintenance, refreshing and cute. A short hairstyle can leave you looking healthy and youthful. Plus, it is always exciting to get a whole new look and feel!

It is important to consider your face shape, hair texture, and lifestyle in mind when choosing a short hairstyle. The good news is that most short hairstyles are suitable for everyone. Keeping that in mind, it is never a bad idea to do a little research or book a consultation before your haircut appointment. There are many cute, short haircuts for women, here we will list some of our favorites.

The bob is an all-time classic haircut, and what is so fun about them is that there are many variations to choose from. Besides a classic bob, there are the edgy bob, wavy bob, curly bob and tousled bob.  The bob hairstyle works well for women with fine hair by creating volume. Some styles are sleeker, while others are full of texture and volume.
