It’s just a myth which states that only long hair look good on women. Short hair amongst female have become quite a trend, and they’re not just plain boring hairstyles that will make you want to yawn, rather, they’re haircuts that will make you want to get those scissors out! Besides the fact that short hairstyles for fine hair are much easier to take care of, especially during summers and monsoons, they also help bring out one’s facial features and increase one’s fashion quota.
The best part about short hairstyles for women with fine hair is that it is not just restricted to the type of hair that you have. Be it straight, curly, wavy, or even something in between these, there’s always a great haircut that will suit your face.
Go chic with this kind of a bob, adding glamour to your already glamorous self! Perfect short haircuts for fine hair, this kind of haircuts has less layers, and so falls perfectly when styled. It easy to take care of as well, so add a hint of chocolate brown color to your hair and you’re good to go!
If you’re thinking about going to extra mile and pretty much chopping off all your locks, and are fearing how to outcome is going to be, don’t worry. Go in for an edgier street look like the one above, and apply some gel to the spikes and watch heads turn. Who says this kind of hair is only for men? This pixie hairstyle or short fine hair is recommended for those with smaller features and a leaner body structure.
If you have curly or wavier hair, and still want to maintain a more feminine look along with your bob, go in for the cut above. Have longer layers towards the front of your hair, reaching about one or two inches below your ears, and get a front bang done. Style the bangs and straighten them, then scrunch up the rest of your hair with some hair mousse, and get the perfect bed- head look!
Typically the most common problem that occurs within females with short hairstyles is limp hair. If you don’t have a lot of volume, or you have dense hair, your short cut can end up looking lifeless. But there’s a very easy way to solving this and that is just to get a lot of layers. Layers on different lengths give volume to hair, and give an impression of a healthy structure. Get some layering done at the back, add some hair product and your hair will look just perfect. If you already have too much of volume in your hair, tell your stylist to balance out your hair, so that your short hair does not poof up and look like a lion’s mane around your head.
Check out the following Top Ten Short Hairstyles for your Hair
1. The Simple Bob
The simple bob is possibly the best hairstyles for fine hair amongst women in short hair. With short hair at the back and longer strands at the front, swept to the side, this cut is much easier to take care of in comparison to others. Add a few golden or chocolate brown highlights in the front of the hair, to add some spice to it. Wash and shampoo regularly, and finish off with a light hair serum when you’re done. I would recommend going in for L’oreal or Matrix. This cut firstly will save you a lot of time when it comes to dressing up and getting ready, and it will also give you your perfect bob without looking masculine. Go in for it if you have longer hair and sharper facial features.
2. The Jagged Cut
Possibly a look cut better with the razor scissors, the jagged cut is edgy, young and fresh. With a lot more separate but equal length layers, especially towards the front, it gives a symmetrical look to the hair. Add some vibrant colour to separate the layers visually and add a bit of oomph. Go in for colours like reds, maroons and violets to make it look classier but retain its charm. Keep a straightening iron handy with this cut.
3. The Glamour Doll
The glamour doll cut is for anybody who wants to transform into a modern princess with short over, overnight. It’s a denser cut, with lesser layers and a long side fringe. Strictly recommended for those with very sharp facial features. Don’t use highlights in this cut, rather go in for a global hair colour. Any colour except for a red, burgundy or maroon. Wash and condition regularly, and use a blow dryer to dry the hair, pushing it slightly upwards while drying to create volume. Use a volume boosting hair spray at the end, to keep the strands in place and looking pretty.
4. The Razor Cut
The razor cut is modern, edgy and very ‘in trend’ right now. Completely been cut using a razor scissors, it gives jagged cuts towards the end of the hair, generally separating your strands and making your hair seem lighter. Don’t highlight this hair, infact don’t use any colour at all is possible, since there is already a lot going on with your tips. Use a frizz control shampoo and conditioner, and finish off with a hair spray, and not a serum. Don’t cry your hair vigorously with a towel, instead use a cotton t shirt and wrap it around your wet hair, and then let it dry naturally later on. This is to control the razor cuts towards the tip of your hair, and to be them balanced, and not all over the place. Although this cut is a little more difficult to take care of, but for those who can pull it off, it works wonders.
5. The Straight Edge Style
Very street, and very young, the straight edge has to be one of my personal favourites. With lots of short layers at the back, and long bangs right in the front, you can literally go crazy with this cut. Wash it , spray with and then gel it and give it the wet look, or just even roll right out of bed and give yourself the ‘bed-look’, you’ll still look perfect! Comb it out front and the rest at the back using a tiny drop of gel, and spray the rest of the hair in place, if you’re going to a formal party or event. Basically, no matter what the occasion, this hair works wonders. Don’t colour it at all; let your hair be au naturale and the cut itself do the talking for you.
6. The Rebel
Very simply put and very much like its name, the rebel is for those who like to do something different. Cut your hair up short, use a lot of hair wax and push it upwards from the back, and for the hair in front, you should make it stick a little to your forehead. Add one streak of a really vibrant colour that stands out, like a pink, green or even blue. Comb down your front hair, and push the ones at the back towards the top, and finish off with ultra spray.
7. The Pixie
This style was on a rage in the market when Halle Berry wore it like this. Meant especially for those with pixie like features, longer necks and collar bones that stand out, the pixie cut is one of a kind. It has short layers at the sides and back, and slightly longer slayers right in the middle, which can be pushed up. Don’t do this kind of hair if you have a lot of volume. Scruff up your hair from the centre and spray it in place Shampoo and condition regularly, but don’t add any highlights to this. The Mohawk looking cut already grabs enough attention as it is.
8. The 70’s Bob
Add some doe-eyes with this cut, and you’ll look like somebody has just transported you from the era of the 70’s! It’s a very delicate bob, with very precise layers. Add some honey or golden coloured highlights if you have brown hair. But whatever hair colour you have, don’t add any vibrant streaks. That will take away from the cut. Just give it a nice, subtle shade, and finish off with a mild serum when you’re done washing your hair.
9. The Pinnacle
The Pinnacle is perhaps one of the most unusual bobs around. Do it if you have poker straight hair, or keep an iron at hand with you at all times! One reason why this cut is great is because it doesn’t matter how thick or thin your hair is, it will look great all the same. This is because the cut has length in the front, causing it to pull your hair down with a little weight and balancing out itself. Add a dark tint to your hair in the shade of red or violet with this. Just remember one thing, if you’re getting this cut with front bangs (like in the picture), you might have to go for trims quite often since your hair will start growing out and going into your eyes.
10. The Hollywood Bob
Supported by a lot of Hollywood stars, including the very stylish Emma Watson, the Hollywood bob is quite similar to the Simple Bob cut (look above). The only difference between them is that the Hollywood is much shorter, and does not have a side swept fringe. The hair, on the other hand, sticks closely to the head, and is quite short, even from the front. Although it looks easy, this cut is perhaps one of the most difficult to pull off, as it can make you look quite masculine. You might need to compensate on your dressing to add a feminine touch if you’re getting this cut. But when it comes to taking care of this bob, it is perhaps the easiest. Just wash, condition and sweep the hair to one side, and let it dry naturally. You might not even need to use any product. For colour, add some undertones or very subtle highlights, which almost blend with your hair, since this kind of a cut does not support too much of colouring.
