Angled Pixie with Long Bangs

Pixies, and variations on these short hairstyles for women, make for a classic and sophisticated look.

Whether blended, layered, or disconnected, there are countless ways to customize a short women’s cut to make it your own. Give it an undercut, keep the bangs long, or add wispy micro bangs.

Short hairstyles can make thin hair look thick, as well as take away the bulk of thick hair, making it a versatile option for all hair types. Keeping a soft neckline and creating fringe along the hairline keeps short hair looking feminine.

With careful consideration of face shape, a short women’s cut can be flattering on everyone. Side fringe flatters square facial shapes, while angles around the cheekbones look great on a round face.

Face-Framing Layers

A stylish upgrade to a standard hairstyle for long hair, adding in long layers takes away weight and bulk, cutting personality and movement.

Blending in soft face-framing layers creates a flattering focal point that draws attention to the eyes and brings life to long hair. Adding heavy fringe or bangs is a nice way to balance a wide forehead, while side fringe complements a short forehead.

An easy hairstyle for women to style and maintain, it works with all face shapes and hair textures.

Lob with Face-Framing Layers and Soft Curl

Great for straight, wavy, or curly hair that is shoulder length or longer, this long bob haircut—or lob—with layers is a beautiful and easy hairstyle for women.

The layered haircut is blended to create soft body and natural hair movement with just the right amount of volume on top. Fringe is cut starting at the chin, blended into the ends for a wispiness that gives bounce to curls.

The lob is versatile length that can be curled, flat ironed, or pulled into a bun, ponytail, or braid, giving you endless style options.

The cut works for most face shapes because layers can be added to flatter your facial structure—shorter layers for round and square face shapes, fringe, or bangs for oblong faces.

Long Interior Layers with Spiral Curls

A layered haircut is a great hairstyle for long hair because it works well on all face shapes and hair types.

By creating long interior layers using a point-cutting technique, there’s less bulk and lots of movement.

Face-framing sections or fringe bangs can be added to complete the hair style, balance facial features and bring attention to the eyes.

Long Layers with Soft Waves

A dynamic hairstyle for long hair, this layered haircut features blunt ends that create a thick and strong look. It has light interior layers for texture, bounce and body. Side fringe is added for softness around the face, but it’s kept long so it can be tucked back to open up the shape of the face.

This long hairstyle works well with all hair types and textures, and since the length can be adjusted to fit the individual, all face shapes can wear the modern cut.

Short Layers with Short Hair

This short hairstyle with round graduation complements the face shape and brings focus to eyes and cheek bones. A slight undercut updates the classic shape and makes it more contemporary. Soft layers add volume and the heavy fringe offers a flirty touch.

Graduation refers to the build-up of weight around the haircut shape. This is ideal for short hair in need of volume. Short hairstyles like this one, plus pixie and bob hairstyles, are fairly low-maintenance and can be left to dry naturally or blow-dried with a round brush. The shape looks soft and feminine whether you pin it behind your ears or scrunch in texture.

This modern crop creates focus on your best facial features. Most face shapes can wear this cut, but leave more length in the fringe if you have a longer or rounder face shape.

This style works well with all hair types and textures. It’s a great option for growing out natural texture.
