4 Cute Haircut Ideas for Women
When was the last time you got a haircut?
If you can’t remember, it’s probably been too long.
Hair experts suggest the average woman should cut her hair every six to eight weeks. The maximum recommended time between haircuts shouldn’t exceed three or four months. If you’re growing it out, you might want to consider a consistent schedule of cutting an inch off every twelve weeks.
That’s a lot to think about, so let’s move on to the fun stuff—hairstyles.
If you’re ready to get a trim (or more), check out the following haircut ideas for women!
- Try Elegant Yet Simple Curtain Bangs
They’re everywhere you look: curtain bangs.
This hairstyle was particularly famous in the 60s and 70s thanks to celebrities like Brigette Bardot and Goldie Hawn.
Curtain bangs get parted down the middle, like curtains, half of the hair flowing to each side. They’re on the shorter side in the center, gradually becoming longer near the ears—the perfect sultry, flirty look for someone with any hairstyle.
- Pay Homage to the Layered Lob
Of all the short haircuts for women, the layered lob is perhaps one of the most classic.
Lob, short for long bob, is exactly what it sounds like—a longer version of the famous short bob, which requires more commitment (and less hair). A layered lob is textured, voluminous, and layered, as the name suggests, giving the wearer more depth than your average short haircut.
- Consider Long and Sleek
The longer the hair, the more potential for split ends. If you avoid haircuts (and you wouldn’t be alone), it could be that your split ends have grown beyond the bottom inch of hair and into the higher bits—prompting a more substantial hair trimming.
We implore you to keep up with your tri-monthly trims and let it grow long and natural otherwise. Then, use a straightener to make hair sleek and elegant, to be pushed back behind ears, worn long, in a low pony, or your own style entirely.
- Go Bold With a Shaved Head
Getting a buzz cut is no light decision, so you’ve probably already decided whether this was an option for you or not.
However, if you’re on the more daring side, a shaved head can do wonders for your confidence and creativity. With a short buzz, you can wear bold earrings or bright lips, dye your hair fun colors every few weeks, or even (dare we say) tattoo certain parts of your skull that will eventually get covered by hair regrowth.
Hair grows back quickly and sporadically after a shave, so prepare to get familiar with a buzzer.
