There were times when we believed that short hairstyles did not offer us much freedom and variety. Today we are impressed at how versatile short hairstyles can be, especially those stunning styles for African American women, whose hair is naturally thick and dense. Some girls simply start blooming with short hairstyles, while longer hair makes them ordinary. If you haven’t found your perfect short hairstyle yet or seek for new variations, if you do not know how to style your short hair for the coming party so that it looks chic, here is an abundant source of inspiration in pictures.

To wear short hair in the previous century was rather a sign of manliness. Today female short hairstyles look very feminine and sexy. Practically every woman at least once dares to try a chin length or shorter haircut.

The Gist of Short Hairstyles

A beautiful short hairstyle begins from the correct choice of a short haircut, optimal for you personally. Note that short haircuts tend to highlight the shape of your face and your facial features, especially the eyes. That’s why it wouldn’t be appropriate to claim that short hairstyles suit everyone. However, if you can boast of beautiful healthy skin and oval face, you will be a goddess with literally any short hairstyle, starting from an extremely short pixie to a chin-length bob. At the same time, if you believe you have something to conceal, you should be more exacting about the choice of the right short haircut.

In case your face shape is not as perfect as you’d like, you can still correct it even with a short hairstyle. Round faces will benefit from hairstyles with volume on top and thinned sides. Oblong faces, on the contrary, require volume on the sides (waves work very good) and long bangs, blunt cut or slanting.
