The Very Best Short Haircuts to Try Right Now

In a hair rut…since last year? Try one of these short haircuts. With no humidity (ahem, frizz) to worry about, it’s actually the perfect time to make the cut. Test the waters with a shoulder-grazing lob–or dive right in with a transformative pixie.
J.LO’S LAYERED LOBJLo1

Scared of scissors? A long, layered look will give your hair a bit of edge without the risk of an awkward growing-out period.

Quite possibly the most low-maintenance cut ever (and one of the reasons why it’s so popular), a piece-y lob actually looks better a little messy. Just add sea salt spray and air dry.

It goes without saying that lobs are hot. The freshest take on the ubiquitous cut? Asymmetry. Have your stylist crop your hair shorter in the back and gradually longer in the front for a sharper look.

So you’ve eased into a lob and now you’re ready for more. Try taking it up a couple inches and pair with a deep side part for a little more polish (and loads more volume).

Or try a sleek, single-length look instead. We love how the Gossip Girl slicked it all back for a night on the town.

How to get away with really good hair: Keep it curly and close to the chin for a foolproof fix against deflated strands.

Fact: Bangs make you look younger. Keep them at or below your brow line to prevent ’80s flashbacks.

Somewhere between a pixie and a bob (a pob?), Mulligan’s cut is equal parts feminine and fun.

Sweep it to the side. Rock a faux hawk. Rumple however you damn well please. The beauty of the pixie is that it’s surprisingly versatile and always looks “done.” (Just become best friends with a good pomade.)
