Short hair exudes confidence and can be endless amounts of fun. For many of us, parting with our lovely locks, or even our habitual ponytail, can be a shaky transition. When making the choice to go short, even the most daring still want to make an educated decision. Looking at the array of great celebrity hairstyles is inspiring, and taking those short hair fantasies to the next level just involves a little hairstyle insight and some conviction.

One essential thing to do before chopping off your hair is to familiarize yourself with the shape of your face and its inherent characteristics.

Square-shaped face

If you've been endowed with a strong jaw, prominent cheekbones, and a relatively square-shaped face, try a blunt hairstyle that hits just between the chin and the bottom of your ears in length. Keep some shorter front layers and don't be afraid to pull the hair back from your face (or pin it) to look chic and bold (you might want to add a little product). Try a side-part, too, and keep things confident and fresh.

Narrow face

For a long, narrow face, don't be afraid to go really short (above the ears!) and keep some heavy bangs; go for that pixie! For straight and curly hair, this can really be a winning look if you embrace it.

Oval face

For oval face shapes, try a cute, textured bob. Add a side part to spice things up by throwing off the symmetry. Play around with the front pieces to frame your face in different ways. Also, try bangs with your new short hair; they'll divide your face up in a new way and it may be just what you were looking for!

Heart-shaped face

For heart-shaped faces, try a layered bob with a side part and long side-swept bangs. You'll want to frame your face nicely and add some excitement with the bangs. Get the ends of your hair layered and thinned out so that your hair falls against your jawline nicely. Don't forget to spice up this look with a little product and some twisted texture on the ends.
