Last time we went over the hottest long hairstyles for the summer. But what about those of you that want to beat the summer heat with a short, sassy hairstyle? Going from long to short takes a tremendous amount of confidence to initially get out of your comfort zone and take your hair to a short hairstyle.
Choosing a look that fits your face shape and a style that you love is key. At Rizzieri Salon, you don’t have to take the plunge alone. Your Rizzieri stylist will help you decide which one will look the best, so be sure to bring some photos of your favorite styles.
Short haircuts are so popular because they’re cool, easy to maintain, and saves you time and energy getting ready in the morning while still looking amazing. Some of the hottest styles right now are short cuts so we’ve gathered some of our favorites to help give you some inspiration if you’re ready to rock a short hairstyle.
Long Bangs. If you want to go short but are a little insecure losing all your length, then adding long bangs around your face can help! Bangs are classically beautiful and there are many styles of bangs trending this summer. Long side-swept bangs can help you feel more comfortable but can easily be swept back with a cute clip, left down for a stylish look for both curly or straight hair, and frame the face for a sweet natural look.
A-Line Bob. If you want current and chic, this cut is for you. The look keeps extra length in front while angling shorter in the back, exposing the neck and keeping you cool. The A-line gives you enough length to offer many different styles from curls, beachy waves, smooth and straight, or letting it air-dry for a day by the pool.
Short Bob. This chin-length bob frames your face, showing off your jawline and highlighting your facial features. This low-maintenance look is easy to style and works well no matter the hair texture and thickness. You can rock this cut with a middle part for sleekness, a side part to add volume, or some cute bangs to give you a style all your own.
Subtle Flip. Transport back in time with this 60s-inspired flip. Whether you have a bob or a longer lob, all you need to do is blow-dry your strands and use a round brush to flips the ends upward, or for a more pronounced flip, run your locks through a flat iron while flipping the ends upward.
French Bob. This super-short, blunt bob is often shorter than your chin-length bob – hitting right about at the lips and with a bang. It opens the eyes, highlights the lips, and creates a stronger jawline. Smooth it with some hair products or let it lie naturally with natural waves and you’re ready to take on the day.
The Orb. Ready for bold and short? This trending hairstyle – think Kate Hudson – includes short, layered pieces with an undercut, taking out the weight from thick hair. The hair at the nape and ears are closely tapered so the top lays smoothly over the shorter pieces. If you have thick, curly hair this hairstyle will lighten and remove excessive bulk for a slender style.
The Pixie. The pixie is a timeless classic. Love your hair by personalizing your pixie in length, layers, and bangs. The pixie cut is classic, neat, and sexy. You can choose to enjoy your pixie with a long side bang, longer, messy layers on top, a short neat cropped pixie – the options are endless and your Rizzieri stylist can help you decide how to customize your pixie cut.
Highlights with a Short Cut. Highlights can go a long way in ramping up your short hairstyle. The fun with highlights is that the sky’s the limit. Try adding a caramel, a shade of red for a little spice, or go bold with a blue or pink. Highlight the tips, the bangs, or do a color melting technique to give you a beautiful blend of color throughout your hair.
Curls. Worried that if you go short it means no more curls? Not true! Curls are instant glam and go great with short hairstyles as well. Spruce up your hairstyle with amazing ringlets for a gorgeous look or embrace your natural waves for a nice beachy look. Tame your curls with your favorite styling product for a night out with a full head of curls.
The most important thing to keep in mind is to have fun with your short cut! Don’t stress, if you decide to let your hair grow longer, the good news is that hair tends to grow faster in summer. At the same time, you’ll need to make sure to visit your favorite Rizzieri stylist every 4-6 weeks to keep your hairstyle trimmed and looking perfect.
