The popular believe that the word “hairstyle” only enclosures the types of up do’s and the different ways to tie your short hairstyles.
But the truth is that hairstyles include hairdos and haircuts and even, they can actually include the styling of facial or body hair.
Taking care and making our hair look fashionable is something that has been on the human life since over 20 thousand years!
This is known as that is the time where the first braid was first registered.
With this we are not trying to bore you to sleep what we want is to let you know that hair styles have been on our lives for so long that you can be sure.
There is a hair style perfect for your short hair, all that is left for you to do is a little research on what styles fit you best.
Hair styles have gone through such a long way, as we said before, they have evolved and gone through so many changes that just “one” look can have so many variations.
Which means that that one hair style can become plenty and various looks with just little differences.
In roman empire, for example, women wore their hair in complicated and intricate styles; curls on top of the head, and even sometimes rows of braids drawn back.
Manly hair styles are not out of the sphere, actually they have gone through as much as girl hair styles have gone through.
During the 15th and 16th centuries, wore their hair no longer than shoulder length, with every man in fashion rocking fringes, known more commonly as bangs.
Then what man had coming were those big white wigs that you can see on movies and such, and this kept going until the 17th century where natural hair came back into fashion.
And from here on they have changed subtly in style, bearded men coming in and out of fashion every once in a while.
Take into mind more contemporary hair styles that you may even have worn in your life, the 1970s was a really ‘natural’ decade and women wore plenty of fairly natural styles.
The 80s were more of a big hair, with voluminous sprayed hair pulled back with scrunchies or even stretchy ponytail holders.
Today both men and women can choose from just wide range of hairstyles, although they are still expected to wear their hair in ways that conform to the gender norms that us, as society, have imposed.
Perfect short hair
There are defining factors that you can look for when looking for your perfect short hair hairstyle.
Hair styles aesthetics are determined by a wide arrange of factors that should be taken into consideration by you.
For example, at the moment of deciding what hair style you should do to your hair you need to see what haircut can fit best with your physical attributes.
As a good haircut or even a change in hair style can completely change the way you look and enhance your physical features (i.e your cheek bones, or your jaw line).
It can also hide trouble features you don’t like about your face so you feel more comfortable.
Your desired self-image can be another important factor to take into consideration when looking for a change of hair style.
You can find yourself noticing that a hair style that you want will not work with your face structure or maybe it can be just that it does not make you look the way you want to.
This does not mean that this has to be a bad thing and you should not let it affect you, you can look for more hair styles, and never be afraid to ask your hair stylist what they thing would fit you best.
We want you to know that there are some things you cannot run away from and that is your physical features, just like the natural way your hair grows.
Especially if you want to have a short hair style and maintain it as if you have a quick hair growth then your hair style will need much more care and maintenance than someone that does not have just a fast hair growth.
It is also important for you to know that hair styles for short hair can make you fit into a certain social group thanks to a specific hair style that group is known for using.
For girls, it is usually that short hair styles can represent, for example, a group that is known as punk or rock can be what people place you in, especially if you go for the buzzed at the sides and longer on the top of the head look.
Hair styles are done by placing the hair in a certain way, the most common way by using combs, blow dryers, gel, hairspray and other products that can help you reach the wanted results.
Short hair hairstyles are not very common, and actually most people have the believe that they are almost impossible thanks to the shortness of the hair.
But they are not in the correct, while yes, they are difficult to achieve it does not mean that they are impossible, there are plenty of choices for you to have your short hair with style and in fashion.
Before doing the hairstyle for short hair you should be aware of the processes you may go through when deciding to style your hair.
Styling short hair can include several steps including cuts, weaves, coloring, extensions, curling and many other forms of styling or texturing that are out in the world.
Depending on the hair stylist and the type of hairstyle or haircut you are going for you should wash your hair beforehand, many stylists wash the hair so they can cut their clients’ hair while it is still wet which can be easier to manipulate when styling and cutting it, making it easier to create a shape or a straight line.
Cutting hair while still wet is not recommended for all hair types, quite contrary actually.
If you have curly or coyly hair it is better for you if you cut your hair while dry on its natural state, so you can have a better line and style.
The cutting while wet method is better used for straight or wavy hair, this technique works thanks to the water maintaining the hairs strands together and pushing them down thanks to the gravity.
This step is not completely necessary for a hairstyle if you already have short hair, although trimming your hair constantly will be necessary to maintain your short hair healthy and the way you want it.
Cutting can also be used to create the shape and form you want, this can affect in big time your hair style and the final look of it.
Although there are ways to trim your own hair, it is recommended for you to go to a friend or a professional as it can be very difficult to maintain the symmetry while cutting the hair on the back of your own head.
This process can vary from just trimming down the uneven or damaged ends of the hair to cutting a big amount of hair in a big style change or even shaving of your whole head.
Remember that trimming is not magical and it will not eliminate the damage of the hair throughout the lengths of the hair or promote a faster hair growth.
What it does though is that it enhances the hair appearance by removing the damaged or split ends.
Combing and brushing
This step is used to untangle and organize the hair, allowing all of the hair strands to go in the same direction.
This step can also remove things such like lint, dandruff or even hairs that had already shed from the scalp but kept on clinging to other hairs.
There are so many things you can use to detangle your short hair; like combs, that come in plenty different sizes and shapes and also different materials like plastic or wood, and brushes.
When using a brush at the moment of styling your short hair it is mostly to detangle it when needed and to help the hair strands go the direction you want them to go to have the best results you can have at the moment of styling your hair.
Brushing your hair while dirty can actually be a good thing for the health of your hair, as by doing that you are spreading the natural oils that your own scalp produces to the rest of your hair which will maintain it healthy, create a protective veil and make it look shiny and beautiful.
An important thing to keep in mind while detangling your hair is for you to start from the tips of your hair towards the roots, in order to avoid breakage and maintain your hair healthy.
Hair drying does not only mean drying the hair with a towel, it can also mean to fasten the process up with a hair dryer which usually blows heated air over the wet hair to make the water evaporate faster.
You must be careful though, if you exaggerate the amount of times in which you use this method to dry your hair it can end up damaging it, splitting your ends or other damages that heat causes.
To minimize the damage you can try using a diffuser to widen the area in which the air flow goes through so it is not so strong on the hair strands.
It is recommended by so many people that you lay back on the heating part and dry your hair with ‘cold’ or ambient temperature air to avoid further damage of the hair.
Although if you are looking to style your hair you have to use the heat in order for the hair to maintain the shape you want it to.
If you decide to dry your hair with a towel make sure to use a microfiber towel, which is less damaging towards the hair and will not over dry the hair.
Also take into consideration that you should drying your hair by softly moving the towel downwards on the hair or scrunching it up, but not by scrubbing it.
Curling and straightening
To get the look you want you will need a curling rod or a flat iron.
Be careful, rods and irons use heat to change the hair into a variety or waves and curls, or even changing the natural curls and textures of the hair to straighten it temporarily.
Keep in mind that using these tools to curl or straighten your short hair can cause damage thanks to the direct and extreme heat temperatures they use to change the hair, and also the chemicals applied after to maintain the shape made by the rod or the iron.
We highly recommend for you to avoid using these types of heating tools in order to avoid hair damage, or to use them only when extremely necessary.
But, if you find yourself in a situation where you can’t avoid using these types of hair styling tools then you can use proper protecting products, like conditioners and creams that can protect your short hair from the heat.
Remember not to abuse of these hair styling methods in order to not extremely damage your hair, taking the proper care and preventions when deciding to go for this look.
This is also a great idea for you to see how you would look with, for example, straight hair if you have it curly.
Either because you are looking for a change of look or just to kill the curiosity of how you would look.
Braiding and updos
Now we have reached the fun part!
Now it is time for you to place the hair the way you really want it to be and making it any way you want it.
Braids are an easy and fun way to tie your hair back with style and beautiful designs, you can tie the totality of your hair or you can decide to just do half of your hair up and the other half down type of hairstyle, here is where you really have no limits!
Although, yes, hairstyles for short hair can be a little bit more difficult to achieve than hairstyles for short hair as you have less hair to work with, but do not see this as a bad side and take it as a challenge to test your hair styling abilities.
Be aware, if your hair is pinned too tightly, it can cause damage to the hair follicle and can result in headaches.
Do not leave braids on your hair for longer than necessary to prevent hair loss or breakage.

Curl out your hair
We know, curling your hair is the oldest trick in the bag when it comes to making your hair look more voluminous.
But that is exactly why we are mentioning it!

Curls add so much volume so easily that is hard to believe, but sometimes it sounds good because it is true.
If you want to add even more volume to your hair then all you need to do is brush your hair to one side, or start the curls closer to the root, adding more volume and movement.

Add twists to your short messy hairstyle:
Okay, you already have your bob and everything is amazing, but…
Sometimes the bangs that you have on your head fall on your face without mercy, and you are left with head falling on your face during the least appropriate moments.
But do not let this take you down!
A cute way to take the bangs off your face is by simply pinning them back.
But that is not the look we are talking about, you can add the little detail of twirling your hair to make it look more chic, and if you rock it with slightly wavy hair you can make two parallel twists that will blend beautifully into it.
Here are the steps you need to follow to achieve this look:
- Grab the strands of hair you want to pin down, if you have short bangs you can just use them or you can also take a little more of other strands to make the twirl go further back.
- Start twirling the hair strands you chose, it is important that you twirl them away from your face and not the other way around as you are trying to move them away from your head, no towards it.
- (Optional) If you do not like the twirls on your bangs you can try twist braiding them to get pretty much the same effect but a little bit more notorious and voluminous.
- Now it is time to pin down the twirled strands! You are almost done now all you have to do is pin down the twirled strands, you can opt to hide the hair clips you use or you can actually show them to the world if you have some that have decorations and such. Or even add accessories.
Braiding the bangs
If you do not really like the twirling idea, or have tried it but realized that you do not really like it, we have another technique.
This one consists on you braiding your bangs to move and keep them out of your face and this can also help you to make your hair have a little more volume.
To achieve this hairstyle, the first thing you have to do is separate then bangs from the rest of your hair.
Once you have done that you need to start braiding.
Maybe it can be easier if you tie the rest of your hair momentarily so you do not mix it with the bangs accidentally.
Before braiding you have braided your bangs, be sure you are braiding them in the direction you want them to go or you can end up with a mess.
All you have to do is pin them back, two hair clips will do the trick for you.
If you have thin or fine hair and want to add even more volume, try teasing your bangs slightly so you can have the most voluminous braids you can.
How to do it, step by step:
- Divide the bangs, or the strands of hair you want to braid, away from the rest of your short hair so you do not end up mixing them both together and end up with a braid on your whole head.
- Braid the bangs towards the direction you want it to go, this detail very important if you want the hairstyle to look like in the pictures, if you braid it to a different side than the one you want it to go it can end up being too messy or maybe even end up with a result completely different from the one you are hoping for. You can do more than just one braid if that is what you really want, there are really not rules at the moment of doing a hairstyle on your hair.
- Now it is time for you to make use of the hair clips, all you have to do is pin the end of the braid with them. You can use two and place them in a cross like pattern to make sure that braid is going nowhere.
If you do not really like the look of the hair clips you do not have to worry.
You can cover them with the rest of your short hair or use any other hair accessories to tie your braid up and that way you can add a little bit of color or even shine to your hair.
This is one of the beautiful short hairstyles for thick hair, which will bring out the best of your hair to shine and you will look radiant.

- Do a normal braid from the very beginning of your hair line, be sure to make it as tight as possible to be sure that the hairs at the side of your head stay right in the place you want them to be.
- While you are making the braid make sure you are teasing the hairs of the braid to make it more voluminous and Mohawk-like, so it does not look like a normal braid.
- If you have hair that is a little longer, or more, than when your Mohawk should end you can role it towards your head and hide it within your braid, securing it down with hair clips so it does not role down, or just leave it hanging, either way you are going to look fabulous.
For the second look, braiding the sides of the head:
- You need to separate the hair that you are going to maintain loose at the top of the hair from the one at the sides, the one you are going to braid for this hairstyle.
- Tie the hair you are not going to braid as for it to not get in the way when you are braiding.
- Braid the hair at the sides of your head, here you have the liberty to choose if you want to do one or more braids and which direction you want them to go.
- Now, all you have left to do is let the hair at the top of your hair loose and style it the way you want it, you can leave it natural, gel it to the back so your hard work on your braids does not go unnoticed, or you can curl it and add hairspray to leave it on just one place, either way you are going to look amazing.

While this is true, it also depends on nailing all the important first steps if you are going to be left with the hair on your head and above your shoulder stand above the rest.
Because of this, and plenty of other reasons, the time to explore all the available options is worth it.
For as much as we are in love with the most recent move towards longer and shaggier styles, you can be sure that a sharper short haircut is a perfect time saving tool when you are getting ready in the morning.
Cuts on the longer side will take more time to maintain and to style while short haircuts require little or even any work at all, although they do not always have the flexibility to suit different looks and styles for different occasions, so the best for you is to ensure that you are happy with a one look do for all.
You can try a buzz cut, which is as short as you can go before becoming Bruce Willis twin. But contrary to popular believe it is not the simple military standard look it once was.
Yes, it is still an all over short hair but nowadays it comes with many different variations, ranging from the shortest cut of all to the tapered down brush cut.
Cutting male hair can be done at home, but as anything else, we recommend that you avoid doing it and go to a hair stylist, so you can have the best results you can even think about.
Hairstylist do not only cut your hair, but they can totally help you decide what style can work better for you and your short hair.
Getting a haircut is not as simple as asking the barber to cut it short on the sides and the back, if you do that it will become an everyday look and not something that will make you stand out.
As stated before we believe that you should talk to your stylist before taking any rash choices.
We are here to show you the different types of hairstyles and looks you can achieve by simply doing a little research.
This hair is achieved by cutting down your hair as short as you can without going completely bald, usually cut in a uniform length.
A great side of this hairstyle is that as the hairs are super short you can be sure that no hair is going to go on your forehead and annoy you during the day, or even better you will not have to worry about occupying an hour in the morning making the hair look good.
And not only that, this haircut works for every occasion, from an everyday event to an elegant or red carpet one.
For as much as a buzz cut is an amazing and simple option for a guy’s short hair it is not a haircut that can fit perfectly anyone, you need to take into consideration that bumps, lumps, scars and the shape of the head are things are things that are going to be noticed and the take an important part of the deciding factor.
To get the end result of this look you will need quality clippers, a set of guards (from numbers #1 to #4) and a soft brush to maintain the clippers clean.
Here is how to do it:
- Make sure your hair is both clean and completely dry, as wet hair will stick together and can cause your clippers to clog, making the process difficult.
- If your hair is still kind of long, then it will be better if you cut it down first. The way to measure it the hair is too long for the clipper is to check if you can still grab it with your hand, if you can then get to cutting
The good side about this is that you will not have to worry if the hair you are cutting is being cut evenly as you are going to buzz it down later.
- Now it is time for you to start shaving! We recommend for you to start at the top of your head and keep moving towards the back and the sides using motions from the front to the back. Remember to go through the same section a couple of times until you are sure you are left with a uniform looking hair.
- If needed you can change the number of the clippers, to shorten the hair in different sections (i.e the sides of your head) and make a style more your own.
With that last thing we mentioned we can continue to talk to you about the different types of buzz cuts that are out there.
The first one is the one that is the same length all over the head, it can vary in length from the #1 to #4 guards, the difference may sound like it is nothing but there is actually some difference in look and style.
A version of the buzz cut is the crew cut, which consists on clipping the sides and the back of the hair evenly, and the top of the hair can also be clipped with a longer clipper or with scissors, making it shorter at the back of the top of the head so the hair in the front can be the tiniest bit longer than the rest of the hair.
This haircut can allow you to have a fringe effect, with which you can play with if you do not really want your forehead on full display. Up next the steps on how to do it:
- Buzz or cut the top of your head in a longer length than what you want the rest of your hair to be. Make sure you are leaving the hair at the front of your head longer and making it gradually shorter towards the back of the top of your head.
- Decide where you want to make the difference in length and get to work by buzzing the sides and back of your head shorter.
- Make sure you are at first using a clipper a number higher than what you are really achieving so you can avoid any mistakes with the measurements o have at least a life line in case something goes wrong.
A fade cut is a men hairstyle that is achieved with very short hair at the bottom of the head that becomes gradually longer towards the top.
With this hairstyle you can have an original and more sophisticated look.
The best part about this haircut is that it can be applied and merged with any other hairstyle to make it look even better.
What we love the most about this hairstyle, besides that it works with most other hairstyles, is that it works with any shape that your head has, it does not matter if it is squared or round, you will look amazing with this haircut.
Another thing that does not stop this hairstyle is the hair type, it can work with any hair that you can think about, curly, straight, wavy and even curly, you just need to find the right stylist to help you achieve this amazing hairstyle.
This hairstyle for men is technically as close to a sculpture as they can get, it is based on clipping the hair at the top of the head in such a way that it looks like a flat surface, especially when adding a gel, pomade or hairspray.
The hair at the top of the head can vary in length depending on what the client wants and what would fit them best.
The most commonly used lengths can vary from half to a full inch.
Follow this steps to reach this hairstyle:
- Choose the length in which you want the top of your head to be. The best trick to cut the hair into a flat surface is to grab a hair comb, brush the hair upwards and move the clippers over the comb to create a straight, flat line.
- Once you have created the flat line, it is time for you to buzz out the sides of the head. It is important that you go moving from a higher number of blades (i.e #4) towards the lower numbers (i.e #1 or even #0) so you can create the fading effect.
- Create carefully the fading effect by moving from one blade towards the other each time going lower, this step has to be done with extreme care.
This one has some similarities with the flat top hairstyle, with the main difference in the way the hair on the top of the head, which can be styled mostly towards the back of the head.

Here is how to make it step by step:
- Cut the hair at the top of the head at the desired length you had chosen.
- Buzz the sides of the head in a faded cut, this is achieved by buzzing the hair each time shorter towards the lower parts of the head. Be careful and make sure the fading is smooth and carefully done as mistakes can be very noticeable in these parts.
- Style you’re your hair! If you want more volume, we recommend for you to dry your hair with a hairdryer thorough so you can have the best style on your hair.
- If you want to add a little more of stability and make sure that the style lasts during the whole day you can add a little bit of hairspray or wax and run it through your hair.
