Pixie


A pixie is what a lot of people think of when they think of short hairstyles. From Twiggy to Jennifer Lawrence, some iconic celebrities have turned it into an iconic 'do which means it's basically guaranteed to never go out of style. Tapered with feathered bangs, it's easy to maintain and even easier to style.

Curly hawk


We just love this look, as spotted by fashion photographer Justin Wu. Those curls make a great contrast to the buzz-cut sides, creating a memorable and almost annoyingly gorgeous look. Sure, you'll need to be pretty brave and have a lenient boss but, when your hair looks this good, it'll all be worth it.

Textured bowl cut


The bowl cut - aside from the stuff of childhood memories (read: nightmares inflicted upon us by our parents) - is a longer version of the better-loved pixie that is slowly gaining favor once again (if not full-on trend status). With plenty of tousled texture and a set of feathery bangs, this 'do has a real contemporary feel that is pretty simple to take care of. To style, rough dry then scrunch some L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum throughout before shaping as desired. It's that easy.

Short waves


With a couple of extra inches, this hair leaves plenty of room for natural waves to move. It's a great wash and go look and, thanks to the layered ends, it's low-maintenance where trims are concerned.

Top tip - Get great curl definition by applying Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream evenly throughout before drying.

Side-swept bob


The bob is another hairstyle that seems to be perpetually in vogue (insert Anna Wintour joke here). It's a real smooth operator that doesn't have much of a shock factor yet still manages to stand out from the crowd.

Cute crop with micro-bangs


While super short micro-bangs aren't for the fainthearted (or the cow-lick afflicted) they do make one heck of a beauty statement. They help create a look that is totally fearless, leaving your face well and truly in the limelight. Team them with a short cut and you've got yourself a gorgeous style with some real cahonies.

Top tip -Minimize frizz by applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream before blow-drying.

Choppy chic


A choppy look is another great short cut that is unlikely to be seen on several heads in the same room. Its uneven ends and deliberately "all over the place" bangs make it totally individual because, if you think about it, no two choppy cuts can ever be exactly the same!

The peekaboo look


Essentially just a long pixie with bangs that fall to eyelash level, this cut is both cute and kind of dramatic. Perfect for thick hair, it can be layered to take the bulk out of all the right places. Just be aware that you will need regular trims to keep this style in shape/be able to see.

Half-hawk


Closely cropped on one side with plenty of length left on the other, a half-hawk is an on-trend short cut that you can still play around with. On the longer side, you can curl, muss, straighten or crimp your hair, adding plenty of intrigue to an already interesting style.

Top tip - Apply some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in small twisted sections to create loose waves.

The graduate


Last but not least, we have the graduated short cut. Really just a super short bob, this cut is a lot shorter at the back than the front with more layers than you can shake a stick - or a tail comb - at.
