The great thing about a short hairstyle is that it can be such easy care. And it also grows. So if you do feel you’ve made a mistake then your hair WILL grow. But have a chat with your hairdresser. They should know what suits you, what suits your hair type and what suits your face shape. Yes, that’s a REAL thing.

DON’T expect to look exactly like the celebrity (invariably you’ll like a celebrity-inspired hairstyle) in the photo. Your facial features, skin tone, hair type and lifestyle will likely be very different from theirs. But be inspired with best short hairstyles.

Ensure you have the correct shampoo and conditioner for your short hairstyle and styling products. These can also make a huge difference as they may add body and help ‘hold’ a short hairstyle.
