Classic Short Haircuts for Women

Some hairstyles never go out of fashion. If you're looking for a new style, consider some of the classic short haircuts for women. They might seem trendy at first, but the truth of the matter is that they're both in style and timeless.

The Bob
This popular short style comes in many forms and works on every hair texture, whether hair is curly, straight or wavy. You can add a trendy spin to the bob with an angled edge or side-swept bang; many prefer to keep it simple. The bob also works in a variety of lengths from your ears to your shoulders.

The Pixie
 Made famous by Audrey Hepburn, and more recently by Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, this super short cut has staying power. You might have to be daring to go so short, but once you do, your true beauty will shine though-and caring for such short locks is super simple!

The Shag
This short and choppy layered look gives you more length than a pixie, but the same wash and go simplicity. Shags look great tousled and often come with wispy side-swept bangs.

Why these cuts are so great
If you're considering short haircuts for the first time, it's smart to stick to the classics. Similar to fashion styles, the trends in hairstyles for women come and go. So if you choose a simple bob or pixie cut you can be sure you won't look outdated or as if you're trying to be trendy. These classic hairstyles for women look gorgeous whether you're young or old and they can even make you look younger.

Caring for a classic cut
In general, the classic short haircuts are easy to maintain. Even if you want to spend extra time adding volume or curls one day, the next your cut can look just as beautiful if you simply wash and go. You will need to visit the salon for trims more often though, with pixie cuts and bobs you should get a trim every four to six weeks.
