Here is a truth that everyone knows. A short way requires a lot of commitment. Now here is the second part of this truth. Too short is also associated with a lot of work. The reality is, no matter how good they look, short haircuts are hard to maintain. More than that, once you’ve used the scissors, you have to stick to it.
In that sense, you need some good haircut ideas and how to style it. Here we come into play. Because we not only have a few of them, we have 50 beautiful short hairstyles for you to choose from.
1. The Shoulder Length Messy Bob
If you’re between two lengths, then the shoulder-length bob could be the cut for you. It’s short enough that you do not have long hair left. However, it is still long enough for a ponytail or a messy bun.
2. The Sarah Hyland
The star of the “Modern Family” is here to invite us to our long list of celebrities who have put on short hairstyles. Here she wears a chocolate brown to blond ombre shoulder-length simple bob.
3. The Selena Gomez
When the former child star had grown up, her long, lush children’s locks had disappeared. She exchanged her for this messy, feathery bob. We especially love the dark brown color that makes her coffee-colored eyes.
4. The Priyanka Chopra
The former Bollywood star also chopped off her long curls in favor of this voluminous, wavy and long bob. As for the short hairstyles, you can not go wrong with being inspired by this beauty queen.
5. Chic short hairstyles
Short does not mean boyish, how many people think. It can actually mean chic. Take a look at this amazingly modern and stylish cut. It has just the right amount of “rough on the edges” as well as Parisian chic.
6. Curly Bob Short Hairstyles
Excuse me, miss? Were you in the latest promotion for Chanel? This is what they will ask you as soon as you wear this unique cut and style. The neck length bob is rolled up in a very elegant style, paired with characteristic smoky eyes and pearly pink lips.
7. Vintage Curls and Short Hairstyles
And speaking of retro, here are a few vintage curls for you. Share your hair on the side and use your curling iron to create this old Hollywood glam look. Obviously, cat’s eye make-up and strikingly red, dull lips are a must.
8. The Gemma Arterton
You can recognize them from “Battle of the Titans” or “Lost Love Work” and you should do it. Gemma is hair inspiration for us all with this outstanding chopped blunt bob, complete with straight bangs. Wowza!
9. Box Short Hairstyles
If you like this short hairstyle, be prepared to remove the hair wax. And a lot of it. There is no other way in which you can make all strands look stale and unkempt. In other words, you are looking for the head of the bed. Shhhh, do not tell anyone!
10. The Marion Cotillard
Marion Cotillard, the typical Frenchwoman from France, is here to teach us a short hairstyle lesson. There is no reason to think about it. A chin length Bob split sideways will do it. Let your natural curls and waves float in the wind and enjoy the joie de vivre.

The comedian has always been part of the short hairstyles. Here she wears an amazing asymmetric bob with dark brown roots and undergrowth and blond strands. We can not help but notice the theatrical make-up and accessories. Well done!

15. The Emma Stone
On a rare occasion on the red carpet, Emma Stone decided to take advantage of her pale skin and become goth. Therefore, she opted for a very short, asymmetrical cut with a non-existent back and longer curls at the front. The dramatic make-up was also a plus.
16. The Carrie Bradshaw
We all loved Carrie’s long hair in the first seasons of the show. But we also worshiped her when she decided on the short hairstyles. Just look how cute she is with this cosmopolitan updo and signature blonde color.
17. The Shaggy Short Hairstyles
One of the biggest things about cutting hair is that you can throw in a handful of mousse and forget about it. In other words, it can be as messy as you want it to be. Just tell people that they should be styled that way.
18. Curly Short Hairstyles
If you have curly hair, you probably already know that it is difficult to have it for a long time. Therefore, one of the simplest ways out of this puzzle is to keep it short and sweet. Find a cut that fits your face shape, and you’ll never have to worry about it again.
19. The Blowout Short Hairstyles

22. The Jaimie Alexander
Jaimie Alexander has done nothing but wow us on the red carpet since we fell in love with her in Thor. She had a number of dresses, all of them gaping. Do you remember the black cut out, which left little imagination? Her hair is the same. Reduce to the bare minimum, revealing her natural, beautiful self.
23. The natural short hairstyles
They woke up like that. That should be your motto if you choose this cut. It’s simplicity and elegance at its finest and you do not have to deal with this haircut much. You can just use a bit of hair wax and blow it out in the morning and you’re good to go.
24. The Lilly Collins
If Lilly Collins wears some short hairstyles and above all this old-fashioned Hollywood glamor, then it’s easy to understand why she was chosen to play Snow White. So if you ever wanted to look like the shortest haired Disney Princess of all, go for it.
25. Short hairstyles with silver fox
Women who go beyond a certain age speak of “the big cut”. Then they have to cut their hair off and opt for the elf or bob as part of the aging process. But you can do that and look like a grandma or you can be a total silver fox. Your choice.

Another big fan of short hairstyles is Jennifer Lawrence. A bit self proclaimed tom boy, Jen enjoys the convenience of a shorter cut, instead of coping with a long and heavy mane. We love her anyway.
28. The Taylor Swift
This country singer has her eye fixed for years on the same haircut and style. She is notorious for not giving up her light, caramel-blond color because she is in favor of never leaving her house without putting on red lipstick. Go for the swift look and shake it country style.
29. The Emilia Clarke

Margot Robbie’s smoldering good looks could literally pull off any kind of haircut or hairstyle. Nevertheless, we love them best in shorter hairstyles and blondes. With her side-parted hair, deep smoky eyes and bare pink lip, she really is a vision. Oh, and those spider pearl earrings!

34. Short hairstyles for prom
If you have short hair and wonder how to style it on the big night of the graduation ball, here’s a great idea. Braid your hair in a simple three-stranded on the crown of your head.

If you want to be Queen Elsa, why do not you go full platinum blonde? This restless, featherweight bob goes well with any eye color and works well if you have a very light skin. Only a hint of light makeup will do.

38. The Side-Shave Short Hairstyles

If there is something we love then it has to be hairstyles that laugh at convention. This is a tamed version of a mohawk, fiery indigo-colored, with a natural shaven brown undercut. True eyebrows, of course.
41. Everyday Easy Short Hairstyles
The beauty of this type of hairstyle, with short sides and back and curly big top is that. It will lengthen your facial features and make them look slimmer. Not only that, but it will also add a few inches to your size when you need it.
42. No Foot Short Hairstyles
Who has the time today to go to the stylist? There is so much to see and do that you just can not waste a minute. If you are one of these girls, cut your curls briefly, wear them loosely and of course straight, in a half-to-lower little man’s bun.
43. Loose Curls and Short Hairstyles
Of course, if you have curly or wavy hair, a pixie cut will be a real blessing for you. All you have to do is find the right hair care products. Apply some mousse or a little hair wax every morning to make sure you do not have straight hair and that you are fine.
44. The Faux Mohawk

45. Jennifer Lawrence once again
She is the queen of our heart and we can not get enough of her. When she made a pixie cut, she inspired us all to do the same. She is a feathery, dumb slash, a bit of French on the side and back, with long, blonde bangs emphasizing her blue eyes.
46. The Anne Hathaway
Even for short hairstyles, this actress is no stranger. We really see her totally G. I. Jane hair wise while playing Fantine in Les Miserables. Anyway, it’s this dark chocolate pixie cut that we love the most. How much Audrey Hepburn of her!
47. The Kaley Cuoco
She freaked out Sheldon on the show when she did, but she delighted us all in real life when she decided to do a Pixie cut. Kaley’s multi-layered haircut in a buttery shade, mixed with brown undertones, made us all faint. Just see what it does for her cheekbones!
48. The Emma Thompson
Double Oscar winner Emma Thompson ages as gracefully as possible. One of the reasons is her exceptionally fabulous long textured pixie cut. The other reason is her beautiful face. Can we all be Emma Thompson, please?
