The most beautiful short cuts of all time

Beautiful short haircuts for women are the megatrend du jour. Considering going for the chop? We say: go for it! Here, we present the greatest short cuts of all time, which will make you long for a new short look – and embolden you to face those scissors!

Short hair styles for women are hot once more. No wonder: As our society questions gender clichés, the fashion world reflects this movement. The lines between masculinity and femininity are increasingly being blurred by great fashion designers. Think: Oversized styling. Women with long hair holding exclusive rights to femininity? Not anymore. Long hair is naturally ultra-feminine, but a beautiful short cut can be, too. The short haircuts in our gallery provide perfect proof.

Short hair – who’s it for?

In general, a short cut should be tailored to the face shape of the wearer. Round faces, for example, best suit a pixie with asymmetrical bangs and long, slender sides – visually slimming the face. Square faces will be flattered by layered bangs to go with a short cut. Heart-shaped faces need asymmetry, such as a sidecut – the voluminous top lengths adding an illusion of width to the chin. Oval faces have it easy: Almost any short cut will suit.
