Dare to go short

With the weather heating up for spring, it's the perfect time to take your hairstyle to a new level -- short. Short, sassy hairstyles are hot for springtime. Let's take a look at some of the popular short hairstyle trends.

Dare to go short

Pixie cut

Michelle Williams, Emma Watson and other celebrities have been sporting pixie haircuts in recent years. If you have decided to go short, the pixie is a hip, trendy style that looks good on many women. The pixie cut is best suited for heart, oval and square faces, but you can pull it off with a round face too.

If you have a round face, add a little texture or piecing on the top so that the cut doesn't make your face look even rounder. The pixie cut works best for wavy or straight, medium to thick hair rather than super curly or thin hair.

Dare to go shortThe shag

If you aren't quite ready for a super short hairstyle, try a shag cut instead that is a couple inches above the shoulders. Alexa Chung popularized the sexy shag a couple of years back, and it's been going strong ever since. The layered style from the '70s can be worn with long sideswept bangs, short wispy fringe or a simple center part.

Chin-length bob

If you have been wearing a longer, modified bob for a while, consider making a change to a shorter, chin-length bob for spring. Bobs this season look great with blunt bangs, or for wavy hair, the tousled look is in.

Short and spiky

Make a fierce statement with a short, edgy hairstyle this spring. Spiky, edgy cuts aren't for the timid woman, so if you think you have the guts to pull it off, head to the stylist with a bunch of photos of different funky hairstyles that you love. Put some trust in your stylist to help you figure out which cut is best suited for your face shape and other features.
