Which short hairstyle do you like best?

If you're in need of some short hairstyle inspiration, you've come to the right place because we have two on-trend short looks for your consideration: a short bob with long bangs and a messy pixie haircut.

The question is, which one do you like best?

Short bob cut

A cute, short bob with lightweight bangs frames the eyes beautifully and can be tailored to look flattering on every face shape. It's easy to maintain, and long enough to create a few different looks with, including pomps and swept back styles, so you need never be bored with it!

Styling tip - Apply some smoothing cream to damp hair. This will help to smooth the cuticle and minimize frizz while the hair dries.

Messy pixie crop

Short pixie haircuts don't leave much hair to hide behind, but they do make a standout beauty statement. They look great with disheveled, undone textures and are generally very easy to take care of, so washing, drying, styling and general maintenance won't take nearly as long as with a lengthier style.

Styling tip - Create the perfect bed head texture by scrunching a small amount of matte putty evenly throughout. Twist and tousle individual pieces of hair until you're happy with how mussed it is, then gently rake everything into place with your fingertips to complete the look.
