    All the hairstyles are really cute. But I wonder if I could carry hairstyle #24 and #100. I have a thin hair which is really hard to make textures. And also, I have a long and inverted-triangle face…

      Hmm…perhaps you could try asking your hair stylist if they think that it would look good. There are also some software programs that allow you to input your picture and then switch the hair style–this could be a great way to see if it would end up looking good.

      You have to be careful with super short hair. If you get a pixie hair cut, it will look amazing and take forever to grow back. Rachel McAdams’ cut is so cute that you should go ahead and risk it. 🙂

    A lot of these are super cute but I think it all depends on your face shape. I know I could never pull off anything shorter than shoulder length. The shaved head is cool, but not something I could do. I really like Anne Hathaway’s cut with her brunette hair, she looks super pretty with that style.

      You are right. The cuteness of any cut will really depend on how your face is shaped. If your face is shaped wrong for the cut, it will end up looking terrible. Anne Hathaway, for example, can pull off a lot of great cuts because of her thin, heart-shaped face and large eyes. I am not sure if I could pull of some of the same cuts though!

    Having just moved to a tropical country, humidity is wreaking havoc on my long tresses. I’ve not been blessed in terms of face structure and have used long hair to frame my face. Now I see a few short face framing hairstyles I quite like, especially Katie Perry’s electric blue one, Hayden’s and especially Kelly Clarkson’s. Good tips about highlights too! Looks like I’m off to the salon!

    Carmen, you have put together a great list here. This provides women with an excellent list to choose from. Anne Hathaway looks so great in her Platinum blonde pixie crop with soft side-swept bangs. This will be excellent for ladies who want to look smart in a gorgeous outfit. Carey Mulligan Short Hairstyles can be seen as a variant of Anne’s hair do, adding a bit of more flair. Do you want know my pick, I’ll choose Keira Knightley Short Hairstyles: Long pixie cut with shaggy bangs, it rocks.

    I have worn my hair short for about 5 or 6 years now and I love it. Short hair is comfortable, and it doesn’t take long to get ready in the morning. The one thing that I don’t like is that I always get the same haircut. With this fantastic list, I’ll have plenty of alternatives to choose from when I get my next haircut, I’m kind of leaning towards Emma Watson’s cut. Thanks, great job on the list.

      That is such a long time to wear your hair short! I bet you saved a ridiculous number of hours over the last six years by not having to really style your hair. Are you going to cycle through the cuts on this list and keep your hair short? Or will you end up taking the risk and going through the awkward growing out phase?

    I envy anyone who can pull off a short haircut…so much easier to take care of! Looking at this list though, there are definitely some bobs I might try out next time I head to the hairdressers. Katherine Heigl’s hair styles rock…so pretty and feminine! Now, if only the rest of me could look like her after.

      Short hair is much easier to take care of, but you really miss out on a lot of the different hair styles that you can do. I had short hair for years, and I was unable to do curly styles or even basic ponytails. You can definitely enjoy some of the styles on this list. If you are afraid to switch to shorter styles, there are always some HerInterest blogs about medium length and long hair.

    This post comes at a good time for me. I especially love Kelly Clarkson’s hair style. You see, due to a chronic illness, I’ve lost some hair and now some of it is growing out.

    Although I have always been a long haired girl, the list of examples here have inspired me to go short, not just because it’s easier to manage and is fresh, it also will help me deal with the lost of my hair and help me gain my confidence again!

    I agree! This list should be used by salons! My salon never has any good photos to look at prior to my appointment and many of these are timeless cuts that will never go out of style. I have always loved Victoria Beckham’s cuts but if I was brave enough, I would love to try Jennifer Lawrence’s!

      You are completely right! Whenever I go to the hair salon, they always have hairstyles from the last decade. It seems like those books are never updated! I feel like hairstylists should just use photos from celebrities to create a folder of the latest cuts. That would make their job easier.

    I pinned #30 to my daughter’s Pinterest board. She’s getting married this fall and is looking for a shorter, spunkier style than her shoulder-length one. I think this would be awesome with her tiara and veil. Plus she has the same color hair color and face shape as Rihanna, so it would fit her well. Adorable!

    Wow – salons need to keep this list handy to show clients! Even though I could never go as short as a pixie cut, some of these are really cute! My favorites are #18 Rachel McAdams, #64 Jessica Biel, #66 Cameron Diaz, #96 Mandy Moore and all the Katy Perry styles. These are all in the fairly short/close to medium length styles, which is the shortest I have gone.

      Pixie cuts are so adorable, but they are a pretty intense decision. Once you decide to grow out the pixie cut, you have an extremely awkward time period while your hair grows out. During that in between time, your hair styling choices will be drastically limited.

It’s all about the looks, once the hair is perfectly done, we have the perfect looks. If you ask me, I’ll go with number 14 when going to work and number 18 when I am on vacation.

    It is obvious why celebrities use professional and experienced hairstylists. Their hairstyles are fantastic. My personal favorite is Taylor Swift’s hairstyle because I have similar curly hair and similar color of hair. Plus it really suits her face. By the way Mila Kunis looks beautiful no matter which hairstyle she tries!

    This is an awesome list of short hairstyles. Short hairstyles can never get outdated due to the fact that most of the women prefer having short hair as it is easy to handle and take care. Moreover, if you are getting late then it just takes a few seconds to comb short hair in comparison to the longer ones.
