There are many different types of hair length that fall under the short hairstyle category. Bald, shaved or buzzed hairs can be considered to be very short hairstyles though you will find some that disagree to calling a shaved head a hairstyle. Short caps and cropped hairstyles are about 2 to 4 inches long and the hair may just touch the tops of your earlobes. Short hairstyles flatter those that have square face shapes. Short spiky cuts, one length bobs and bangs all work well. Short hairstyles are very versatile and you can do many things with short hair. Your short hairstyle can be minimally styled for everyday styles, sweeping your bangs to one side as an example. To maintain short hair you will need to have it trimmed frequently. If you are getting a short hair style after having long hair then you should think about getting long layers as you can utilize many different styles.
Short cuts may not work for everyone. If you have curly hair then a short cut may cause your curls to pop out. You need to make sure that you have the correct texture and type of hair that would be flattering for a short hairstyle.
