Short Haircuts to Make You Chop off Your Hair
1. Short Bob
Short chops that frame your face shape is IN this summer. How about the classic straight cut which tapers a little bit down towards the chin? This cut is one of the most basic but on the right face shape, it looks fresh and clean, especially in the hot summer days. And since it’ basic, it’s easy to style.
2. The Pixie
If you’re going for short haircuts, why stay in the safe lane when you can go adventurous with a pixie cut with side-swept bangs? Style it with a nice hair color like this beautiful platinum hair color. It complements your short pixie and is classy and edgy all at the same time. Makes me want to go chop off my hair now!
3. Asymmetric Bob
How about a really short asymmetrical cut to bring out your cheekbones? Seriously, one of the sexiest short hairstyles out there. It works well for women with fine hair as the layers add volume. Also, you won’t even have to worry about how it’ll look when it’s longer because, somehow, it looks prettier with a little bit of length.

You can also go with an undercut. This is personally something I’ve never tried before, but I’d really, really like to one day. How hip and beautiful this short summer haircut is?

A pastel-colored wavy chop is as interesting as a pixie cut, especially if the colors are wonderfully executed. You don’t even have to go for really short hairstyles. Just a sweet chop which touches your shoulder is enough to bring in sexy in the summer heat.
6. Textured Cut
Another way to keep a short length hair is to give it texture, this grunge feeling cut is edgy and sexy in all the right places. Add a twist to this short layered hair with textured full bangs. Use a flat iron or let your hair loose and enjoy a wavy hair. After all, curls are in this beach season.
7. Short and Bangin’
Bangin’ bangs which frame your eyes this summer is another way to do it. It brings focus to your eyes and gives a youthful aura to your face. I’m wearing one now, and I’ve been loving it. Haircuts with bangs can seem hard to maintain, but it all boils down to having good hair products to take care of your hair.
