A short blonde hairstyle is the perfect fresh new look for the spring and summer months. If you’re looking for something that’s simple and pretty, these cute easy hairstyles are just what you need! And if you’re considering short haircuts for the first time, you can certainly find your next style in this gallery.
Girls with short hair know that you have to start by finding the types of hair cut for your face shape and the perfect color for your skin tone. Unlike with long hair, your facial features are on full display with a short cute hairstyle.
If you already have a favorite shade of blonde, great! Jump right into your short haircuts. If this is your first time going blonde be warned: there are so many pretty hair colors to choose from! Take some time to figure out the best hair color for your skin tone and style before you dive into the dye.
Cool skin tones look great with blonde hues like platinum or ashy blonde. Warmer skin tones are best suited to colors like honey or strawberry blonde and caramel hues.
Now let’s pick out the best short hairstyles for your face shape. There are many types of hair cut that suit different face shapes and hair textures. A short haircut style doesn’t mean pixie cut, there are so many pretty hairstyle options! Oval face shapes can get away with just about any style (lucky gals). Face-framing layers look great on oval faces, as do blunt bangs. If you have a round face, an angled bob will perfectly frame your face and highlight your beautiful features. Square face shapes look great with layered cuts and waves. Finally, heart-shaped faces are a great match for side-swept bangs and long bobs or “lobs.”
When it comes to taming your texture, remember this: it’s all about the right styling tools and products. Talk to your stylist about the how to style short hair at home, which products to use, and in which order to use them.
Now, let’s dive into the best short hairstyles for women in 2018!
1) Side-swept Textured Balayage Bob
This “tousled just so” look is an easy hairstyle to maintain. First, the balayage-style blonde will free you from the constant cycle of touching up your roots. Second, the choppy layered cut gives built-in texture and movement and a casual polish. Busy mom? Slammed student? This quick style cut is a time saver!
2) Pretty Angled Honey Blonde Lob
This cute haircut is polished. Warm honey-blonde tones and face-framing platinum highlights shimmer and shine in loose waves. The cut itself is a long bob angled that’s slightly shorter in back and longer in front. It’s simply gorgeous when styled, and the longer front layers are nice because you’ll still have a ponytail handy when you need it!
3) Warm Platinum Choppy Bob
This is one cool haircut. The short angled style is short and layered in the back, with long pretty layers in front. The blonde hue has great dimension. This is one of the most cute hairstyles for girls with a little edge!
4) Layered Ash Blonde Lob for Fine Hair
This cute haircut is perfect if you have fine or thin hair. The nape-length bob with angled layers in the front gives you volume and movement. Ash blonde highlights will thicken up your strands, give you more texture, and make your locks easier to style. Long layers in the front can be pinned or tied back for versatile looks!
5) Dirty Blonde Shoulder-length Mussed Curls
This is a perfect pick of the short hairstyles for women who are new to haircuts for short hair. Shoulder-length layers are plenty of hair to work with for up-dos, but still short enough to give you a totally different look. Maintaining dirty blonde balayage is a breeze. The key to these curls is leaving out the ends and finger-combing.
6) Cute Messy Platinum Pixie Cut
This pretty pixie has tons of layers to frame your features, and the platinum color with dark roots gives it awesome dimension. A flat iron is required for this look, and while daily styling will be quicker than with long hair don’t let the length fool you. A pixie cut requires regular maintenance of both length and color.
7) Cool Ashy Blonde Textured Lob
If there is one universally flattering hair style, this might just be it. Textured layers are great for giving fine-haired gals more volume, and also de-bulking for women with thicker hair. The loose, beachy waves can be styled with a curling wand or a flat iron. The ashy blonde color is lovely and easy to maintain with balayage.
8) Easy Hairstyle in Cool Honey Blonde
If you have super straight hair – or you really love your straightening iron – this is a great cut for you. This is a particularly good option for fine hair. The blunt ends of this cut are really modern and fresh. The color is almost ombre with a honey hue. This cute hairstyle could easily be worn curly or straight.
9) Sexy Shoulder-length Waves with Top Knot
If you’re into “perfectly undone,” this is one of those cute easy hairstyles that’s your go-to. Platinum blonde face-framing color makes it look like the sun kissed your hair. A breezy top knot keeps this style on trend and effortless. This short hairstyle is a nice option for students who want to look put together but have a casual day-to-day style.
10) Bombshell Bob with Platinum Waves
If there’s one word that sums up the style it’s: glamorous. This chin-length bob has texture with finger combed curls and a deep side part. The platinum color puts it over-the-top chic. This is not a style for wallflowers, you’ll definitely be turning heads with this haircut design.
11) Modern Angled Blunt Bob
This style is feminine but also thoroughly modern. The platinum overall dye job has highlights and lowlights giving it shine. There’s a slight angle from shorter in back to longer in front but overall its one length. If you have naturally wavy texture this may be tough, but if you have straight hair or get regular blowouts it is a gorgeous cut.
12) Low-Maintenance Long Bob
This traditional blonde with platinum highlights and warmer undertones is one of the best hair color choices you could make. The blunt shoulder length of this cut is broken up with some face-framing layers. Some simple waves are all you need to make this your daily style.
13) Wavy Bob Haircut Style with Layers
A great layered cut is the best hairstyle for women with fine hair. All-over layers lighten the cut and give it great volume. The beachy waves and multidimensional blonde hair highlights throughout create a depth in the style and are super-easy to do on the daily. No one will ever guess you have fine strands!
14) Cute Hair Color and Tousled Bob
If you’re going for simple, short hair this is it. The super light honey blonde is a really pretty hair color. The length and texture of this bob are great for daily styling and easy to maintain. And if you go too long between cuts this will magically transform into a lob that is just as chic.
15) Wispy Ash Blonde Angled Bob
This unique hair color falls somewhere between warm honey and platinum. This all over color will definitely take some upkeep, but it is totally worth it. The wispy layers in front break up the angled bob, giving it some softness and texture.
16) Loose, Pretty Shoulder-Length Curls
This is one of the classic short hairstyles for women. The cut has a sort of shag shape to it but just brushes the shoulders. Big loose curls sweep away from the face and are broken up through finger coming and warm blonde highlights and low lights in pretty hair colors throughout.
17) Modern Wavy Flatironed Bob Cut
The platinum over ash blonde color combined with precision straight styling and one strategically placed flatiron wave is totally trendy. The bluntness of the look is softened up with some texture at the ends and very subtle layers around the face. This would be equally pretty on a girl boss or a trendy mom – or perfect for the woman who’s both!
18) Dirty Platinum Blonde Grown-Out Bob
If you’re on the growing out side of a short haircut this is a great transitional style. The awkward in-between not-quite-a-bob, not-quite-a-lob length is conquered with daring platinum color and deconstructed waves. Add a half-up messy bun and you’re ready to go!
19) Messy Beachy Balayage Blonde Bedhead
Combine shoulder-length “the sun and sea air did this to my hair color” blonde with messy waves and you’ve got this look nailed. The color gradually goes from dark roots to platinum tips, and the single-length lob is broken up with messy waves. Break out the salt spray and texture paste to achieve this style.
20) Gray Blonde Chin Length Bob
This color is super fresh and current. The ombre dye is between platinum blonde and gray, and the cut shows it off perfectly. An angled bob with chin-length longer front pieces and textured nape length back pieces set off the unique color and frame the face beautifully.
21) Wavy Short Shoulder-Length Lob
Styling this short hairstyle will be super-quick: part the hair, curl from ear-length to the ends leaving the tips out of the curling iron, then finger comb with finishing spray. The pretty ash blonde balayage breaks up the blunt cut and makes this simple style much more interesting.
22) Precision Hair Highlights and Preppy Waves
Honey blonde precision highlights create this gorgeous color. The simple, slightly angled shoulder-length cut is offset with some minimalist curls on the end. This look combines some of the very best short haircuts for women – the lob, beachy waves, and unique hair color – with polished perfection.
23) Cool Blonde Face Framing Curls
This unique hair color with shimmery platinum against a dirty blonde base almost looks metallic. The angled bob goes from the nape of the neck to just above shoulder length at the front. The curls add texture and volume to soften up the cut.
