Short hairstyles make a serious statement, as proven by many of our favourite celebs.
Whether you’re sick of your long locks or you want to change your look completely, a hot new short hairstyle is definitely the way to do it. Copy Kristen Stewart’s style with a fiery crop or make like Jourdan Dunn and swap shoulder-length for short.
If you’re still undecided, just think how much time you’ll save not having to spend hours washing, drying and styling your long hair every morning. Rock a short ‘do and you’ll be looking awesome and ready to go in a matter of minutes. We promise.
Don’t worry if you think chopping your hair will limit your style options, there’s still loads of looks you can rock, like the styled-up quiff, face-framing curls and neckline up-do. Don’t believe us? We found over 100 (yes, really!) show-stopping short hairstyles, courtesy of the A-list and all you have to do is pick your favourite.
You don’t even have to stick to just one of these bouffants. With short hair, you’ve got the option of easily changing up your ‘do every day.
Imagine that! All you have to do is pop to the bathroom in the morning, fix your mane with some product and voilà. Curling and straightening will also be a simple task.
For the fashion-forward girl, a short hairstyle is a great way to make sure your barnet suits your outfit. For example, soft rolls will complement a girlie dress while a spiky mohawk will perfectly set off a pair of leather trousers.
