Summer is one of the best times to get a shorter haircut. Cropped styles are perfect for warmer weather because they involve less hair on the back of your neck – never comfortable when temperatures soar – and they tend to take a whole lot less time to wash and style than longer 'dos.

We've handpicked five gorgeous short hairstyles so, scroll through and get inspired... who knows, you might find your new summer 'do!

The main thing to bear in mind is that any hairstyle you choose should looks and feels good on you. This means choosing a style that flatters your face shape and isn't too harsh on your features. Of course, it's always good to have an idea of what you want - i.e. take some pictures along – but make sure to ask your stylist for their opinion before they make the cut.

All about texture

Whatever your chosen style, texture is really important. First of all, you need to consider how your new cut will work with your natural texture. Ask your stylist for some advice so they can tailor your desired cut to fit your hair or suggest a better alternative. Ultimately, it all depends on how much time you're prepared to spend styling, and what kind of things you would need to do in order to achieve the look you want.

Post-salon, you'll need to know how to style your new cut with your natural texture and also how to style it differently whenever you want to. For this, good products are essential. Keep some salt spray close to hand for an instantly tousled look or, if you want more hold, try a cream wax instead. For a shortcut to an ultra-polished look, a high-shine finishing spray is also worth investing in.
