Thinking about short hair for the summer months? Check out these 5 short haircuts!
Short hair can very liberating and a wonderful way to kick off the spring and summer seasons. Short haircuts can also be a great way to avoid some of the problems associated with summer hair, like drying and bleached out color from too much fun in the sun. Paired with casual outfits or sophisticated evening wear, a well done short haircut can be as versatile as long locks.
Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams’ platinum pixie cut looks just as fabulous dressed up for the red carpet as it does when she is just running around doing errands. The secret to this look is keeping up with the color and maintaining the integrity of the hair by conditioning. Dark roots will make this short haircut look sloppy rather than sleek, so if you are going to commit to super short hair with a super blonde color, make sure you are prepared for the upkeep.
Harry Potter actress Emma Watson looks so fabulous and glamorous with her short hair that I almost want to get the same haircut. (Except I’m about 30 years older and a lot less stunning than the former Hermione Granger…!) Her pixie haircut plays up her high cheekbones and striking eyes, so that her face truly shines beneath the cut. And with a bit of gel to add texture or to slick back the front, her haircut can be either playful or sophisticated.
Pop singer Rhianna looks fierce and fabulous in her cropped haircut. Opting for longer pieces in front gives her that edgy look that is soooo RIRI. It also gives her more styling options (not that she needs them with the hair stylists she has on call!) But longer pieces on top will help you mix it up a bit if a super short haircut isn’t your thing.
Gorgeous Rooney Mara could give us all lessons on how to style short hair while growing out the cut. Her extreme makeover for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has yielded a lovely and elegant look post filming. With short pieces accentuating her face to sleek and swept back styles, Rooney’s short haircut is dramatic and graceful all at the same time.
British actress Cary Mulligan is growing out her super short haircut, and the transition is lovely. With dimensional layers she achieves a soft, tousled look that still allows for some braids and styling when she wants to change her look up a bit. This cut would be great for summer because it requires very little up-keep and can be styled with your fingers and left to air dry.
