Short hair, don't care.
When it comes to cutting it all off, there's been no better time - short hair is ALL the rage at the moment, thanks to trend setters like Hailey Bieber and Zendaya, to name a few.
There's many ways to skin a cat, however.
Here's our definitive guide to the different types of short cuts and how to rock them.
The Pixie Cut
Short back and sides, and long on top. That's a pixie in a nutshell. Although it can come in many different interpretations and forms.
If you're looking for low maintenance, the pixie might just be your bag.
Best for: Oval, square and heart shaped faces.
Styling product essentials: Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dust It 
The Bixie Cut
The Bixie! The latest reprive from the 90s. The perfect marriage of the pixie and the bob, featuring lots of layers.
Pretty low maintenance and highly versatile.
Best for: Any face shape! Also pairs beautifully with bangs.

The Bob
The classic bob never goes out of style.
There are so many variations of the bob, as we have ventured in many a blog post.

Best for: Everyone! Particularly those with thinner hair.

The Lob
For those who aren't willing to commit to a super short look, the lob is defined as being between the chin and the collarbone in length.
It's basically just a longer bob (hence, lob).
Best for: Anyone! You could introduce some face framing layers, curtain fringe or leave it all one length.
