Ready for a change? Here’s a time-saving gallery of the newest, short, straight hairstyle trends to fix you up for the new season! Short haircuts are so liberating, when you gain those long hours spent drying and styling long, fine or thick, hair. And short textured, layered haircuts always create a trendy, up-to-date image that accentuates your eyes and looks very attractive! Buzzed back-and-sides styles are gaining popularity and new colors are changing everything! So let’s get started on today’s hair-fashion show – specially prepared just for you!
Textured mid-ash-blonde short straight hairstyle
This soft pixie cut looks fabulous in the latest ash and silver-blonde shades. And the band of beige-blonde, plus beige balayage in the side point, creates lots of extra style! Layers cut in medium or fine hair help you get lots of extra volume in modern styles with forward movement from just beneath the crown. Adding texture to short haircuts from directional styling is quick, compared to the time needed for curls, and much more fashionable!
Defined disconnected layers on short straight hairstyle
This gorgeous beige bob haircut is a great style for taming thick hair. Stacked layers create a lovely rounded outline to the back and the straight line across the nape contrasts with the sides. Disconnected layers at the sides add up-to-the-minute edge, with a ragged line swooping down to just touch the shoulders. This fab angled bob update has lots of texture and forward movement, in a trendy blend of ‘mink’ neutral beige with soft golden balayage highlights.
Symmetrical bob with full bangs – short straight hairstyle
Black hairstyles in geometrical short haircuts are perfect for projecting a young and stylish image. This angled bob has layering that takes advantage of the model’s thick hair to carve a hot, easy-care shape. Short symmetrical hairstyles suit oval faces and with a straight-across fringe, can ‘shorten’ a long face, or hide a broad ‘heart’ forehead. The fringe has a noticeable curve, which is a great way to soften an angular face. And shorter layers at the chin direct the eye upwards, making this a great choice for long or mature faces!
Sassy sliced layers on neutral blonde bob – short straight hairstyle
Here’s another model with a longish face and a well-developed chin, but this short asymmetrical haircut is just the thing to balance out her face. The off-centre parting and side-swept, long fringe breaks the long line of the face. And by wearing her hair no longer than the bottom of the ear, all attention is directed upwards to those lovely, blue eyes and away from a strong chin! Neutral blonde with ash-blonde balayage really accentuates the color of blue or green eyes, too!
Pale ivory-blonde chin-length bob – short bob hairstyles
Fine hair bleached to a very light blonde shade will look thicker and be easier to style, but unless you want a matte finish, regular deep-conditioning is vital. This layered A-line bob cut to chin-length is one of the most face-flattering short, straight hairstyles for most face-shapes and all ages. Long layers add shape without reducing the density of fine hair and keeping the angle fairly gentle also helps thickness. Dark roots are a bit ‘last year’, but you can modernize this cute style by getting medium beige or dove-gray roots!
Lively forward texture on ash-beige brown short bob hair styles
This very stylish short bob haircut looks great on medium and fine hair. It’s cut to ‘hug’ the nape in a tailored look that follows a shapely line forward to the jaw. The look is symmetrical, with a very short fringe cut in an arched shape that’s longer at the outer edge. The curved shapes make it a great face-frame for oval faces, or for softening the angular edges of a square or diamond face. The subtle taupe hair-color is highlighted by dual-blonde balayage, which emphasizes the fabulous texture and movement!
Classic black & blonde pixie with buzzed back & sides
If you’re after a look with plenty of visual impact, try a two-tone black and blonde short pixie cut. There’s a boy-cut vibe in the buzzed back-and-sides, graduated to a ‘fade’ finish. You can vary the style with a quiff, or a long, casual fringe. This ‘rock-chick’ cut is a modern classic from the spiky layers at the crown to the contrast between black roots and platinum-blonde. But why not make it even edgier with gray roots and an ash-blonde top!
Stunning white-blonde pixie hairstyle for all age groups
If you share this model’s love of trendy fashion, or have ‘natural’ white hair, this lovely style is for you! The symmetrical sides have cute, layered shape and short side-points that emphasize the eyes and cheek-bones. The top has longer layers creating a rounded shape on top and a neat, full fringe parted at one side. White hair, with a touch of purple toner, creates a fabulous frame for the eyes – with or without make-up. And keeping the focus on the upper face is great for women’s over-50’s haircuts and to minimize a strong jawline!
Stylish buzzed pixie in brunette with dainty balayage
Buzzed ‘boy-cuts’ are getting more popular every season! There’s a huge feeling of freedom when your hair can be washed and styled in about 5 minutes! And you don’t lose the flattery of a face-framing style, either, as you can see above. The buzzed-back shows off the curve of a well-shaped head and short side-points soften the profile. You can vary the look from the long, forward styled fringe shown above by adding equally trendy waves or a quiff. And adding a few, fine blonde highlights adds movement and femininity to the diagonal bangs.
Extreme short angled bob hairstyle on thick black hair
Thick hair needs strong lines and expert-cutting to bring out its natural advantages, like shapely volume and density. And the extreme, angled bob is one of the most popular short haircuts to combine high-fashion styling with a very easy-care hairdo. The stylist here has created a fabulous, feathery texture in the tips for an edgy, uneven detail that contrasts with the neat line around the nape. Medium or thick hair just needs to be carefully thinned and shaped at the tips to flow in this super graduation down to the front tips!
