Yet, to make the most out of your short cut, you need to stick to certain rules, which vary depending on your face shape. They are as follows:

  • Heart Shape. You should make the eyes and cheekbone area the focal point of the look. To do this, incorporate different types of bangs into your cut or style the side strands ample.

  • Elongated Shape. As a rule of thumb, long hair makes your face visually longer. So, in case it is already elongated, you should stick to short cuts with voluminous sides. Optionally, complete the look with a bang.

  • Round Shape. No matter whether you have waves, curls or straight locks, consider haircuts longer than your jawline. Otherwise, it will make your face even wider in the cheek area. Short chubby face haircuts with voluminous tops are your failsafe option.

  • Oval Shape. If there is one face shape that looks good with any haircut, it is an oval face shape.

However, in case the balance is shifted toward either the length or the width of the face, you should choose the haircut accordingly.

Short Haircuts: FAQ

Does short hair make you look older or younger?

There are some scenarios where certain short haircuts make women look older or younger. For example, very short cuts with enormously voluminous hair on the back or too defined feathers have been out of style for decades, so they instantly add some years to those sporting such options. And if you wear short hair with a soft fringe or lively texture complementing your face shape, you can take years off!

How do I know if short hair will suit me?

You can find out whether or not short hair will suit you by using a ruler and a pencil. Standing in front of the mirror, place the pencil horizontally under your chin, and then place the ruler vertically under your ear. If the distance between your ear and the pencil is less than 5.5 centimeters, you can try short hair.

How short should I cut my hair?

There are a couple of things to consider before cutting your hair and deciding how short it should be. First, you can take the 5.5 centimeters test with a ruler and a pencil. Second, decide on how much length you’re ready to lose, and which one you’ll feel most comfortable with. And lastly, think of your visual preferences.
