12 Formal Hairstyles with Short Hair: Office Haircut Ideas for Women

Now that short hairstyles are dominating the fashions in hair design, several trends are emerging and smooth, formal hairstyles for short hair are one of the most popular new looks!

Variety: Like most formal styles, this creates a look that ranges from well-groomed, professional-looking, elegant and chic, but it also includes quirky, spiky and futuristic, too. So from one formal haircut on short hair, you will always have the option of plenty of variations in the way you style it.

Thick hair

Thick hair looks well-behaved and controlled in formal hairstyles for short hair and is perfect for the new season’s hairstyle innovations. Thick hair has the great advantage of natural volume, so needs very little extra styling after you get a good haircut. This means that women blessed with thick hair don’t have to spend time trying to curl or wave their hair in order to get the volume that flatters most of us.

Fine hair

Fine hair, however, also looks fabulous in formal hairstyles for short hair – as with the addition of layers it’s much easier to get more ‘lift’ into your hair, if you apply one of the new non-sticky, alcohol-free styling creams or mousses.

Mixed cutting and textures

What I found most exciting about this season’s new hairstyles is that there’s more emphasis on creating texture in straight styles, along with more mixing of cutting techniques within one style.

This means that the traditional formal hairstyles for short hair have been totally updated to suit the demands of 21st century fashions. In addition, there are lots of innovative, completely new looks on offer to feed our need for something different!

Ear-lobe level

The classic bob is extremely popular again but with the twists and touches that make it look fresh and modern. Angled bobs, inverted bobs and new this season, bobs that finish at ear-lobe level are enjoying the demand for contemporary-chic styles that are face-flattering and different.

Choppy layers

In addition, for the young ‘rebel’ look that teens and rock-stars love there are many more choppy cuts. These range from a ‘ragged-looking’ fringe (for the trendy but conservative amongst us!) to a full head of asymmetrical layers, with a fabulous choppy texture that creates an amazing ‘futuristic’ look!

Soft wispy tips

For a formal event, you can’t beat a smoothly styled short bob which has been cut to enhance (or diminish) your facial features. Fine hair, cut in a pretty pixie or a short bob can be styled in a truly stunning look for a special event.

With lightly textured tips, this is a very attractive style on fine hair, as the tips soften the face and make a really flattering frame accentuating the eyes, cheekbones or lips – depending on the individual cut.

Sculpted curves or strong lines

And there are some marvellous bob cuts for thick hair with highly sculpted curves or strong, asymmetrical lines that we’ve not seen before, too!

So I hope I’ve whetted your appetite for this gallery of inspirational, innovative formal hairstyles for short hair! You’ll love them!
