Common Questions About Short Haircuts Answered by a Master Stylist

Short and stylish

When it comes to hair, sometimes less is more - especially during the summer. If you’ve asked yourself the question, “would short hair look good on me?” - the answer is yes! Short hair can suit anyone; you just have to find the hairstyle (and hairdresser) that’s right for you.

Below, you’ll find a few of the most common questions people have about short haircuts - along with answers from a Northern VA hairdresser who specializes in them.

1) How will I know if short hair looks good on me?

Believe it or not, there are many, many different types of short hairstyles and cuts. If you’re like most people, you’re probably familiar with the “bob” and “pixie” cut, but not much else. In reality, there countless iterations of the bob alone, such as the long bob - not to mention undercut pixies, side-parted styles, and many others. In other words, there’s something for everyone when it comes to short hair.

2) Can short hair work with an oval face?

Yes. If you have an oval or longer face, you can still rock a short hairstyle. Some women think a short haircut (such as a true pixie cut) could exaggerate the shape of their face. While this might be true, it doesn’t mean you can’t find a short style that works for your face. Ask your stylist about layered messy pixie bobs or A-line bobs to avoid this problem while still achieving a shorter style.

3) Will a short cut make my hair look thinner?

No. In fact, short hair is a great option for women with naturally fine hair. If you want a shorter cut and have thin or fine hair, ask your hairdresser about a long pixie. This look will not only frame and flatter your face but give your hair the appearance of added volume and thickness.
