Short hair has become one of the main fashion trends, thanks to its enormous versatility and elegance. In addition, it allows us to benefit from a very low maintenance cut. That is why we will show you a large number of hairstyles for short hair below.

Modern women are much more daring, transgressive and innovative and are much more encouraged to opt for this type of cuts, comparing them with women of other times, where social prejudices often limited them in their image. That is why today for all this huge number of followers of short haircuts we wanted to present some modern ways of how to style those different styles of cuts that encompass short hair.

Loose straight

Although the straight has been giving way to the wavy, it is true that if straight hair is what you like and what favors you, why are you going to change your style? So, if yours is a short and very smooth mane, you will love these suggestions. Short hair is still the dominant trend of 2021 and many celebrities have already joined it.

You can wear your hair with bangs on the forehead, to one side or a curtain look, whichever you like and favor the most. You don’t have to worry much about how to maintain it, because one of the great advantages of short hair is that it is easy to style and maintain, so bet on the style that is most comfortable and flattering for you.

Very short or slightly long hair almost reaching the shoulders, the pixie and those that are layered are perfect to give body to your hair and make it look with a lot of movement.

As you can see in the photographs and as it is quite obvious, one of the things that will mainly limit the hairstyles is the cut style, since obviously it is not the same to comb a pixie style than a Bob cut just above the shoulders. This is why it is vitally important before you dare to cut your hair, analyze well what hairstyles are comfortable and you could perform, in addition to analyzing the texture of the hair, since the various cuts will not look the same on extremely straight hair as in a curly one.

Finally, there are more modern and urban options, which will make it look different, extravagant and striking. We refer to the use of gel that gives the appearance of wet hair.

If you don’t enjoy a lot of curls as much but it still gives you wavy hair, then you can choose to wear it with soft waves. In this case, the hairstyle has very soft waves that are accentuated at the ends. The following is the same style on a longer mane and hair in a different color, which reminds us that these hairstyles work on any mane.

Bouffant: Many women associate the fact of getting a short haircut, with not being able to make up hairstyles. This is not always the case, since a large number of short haircuts require hair lengths of up to 20 centimeters long, from the upper parts of the head, which will allow you to make beautiful hairstyles of this style.

Chignon: The hairstyles that are collected are known by this name and that the knot is carried coquettishly attached to the lower part of the head, although there are variants and some are slightly higher.

Top Knot Bow, Knots, Turning: These types of hairstyles are simple way to look fresh, elegant and very feminine. They can be used for both casual looks and the most elegant and sophisticated ones.

These styles have seemed great to us, since they highlight all the splendor of past decades, where turning the hair, in the back of the mane, was something very common.


Semi updos have the perfect balance between the sophistication and elegance of a classic updo and the sensuality of a loose hairstyle. They are perfect for both formal and casual occasions, but there are some rules to follow when it comes to the type of occasion. For casual occasions it is not necessary to apply design techniques, while for formal occasions greater effort and creativity is required to adapt to the pretensions of the event.
