Women’s Short Hairstyle Trends for Winter 2016

Summer has gone by so quickly that it’s so common for people to have a holiday hangover. The feeling of the hot sun can be enough to make someone have her hair cut short just so she doesn’t keep sweating from the heat. But now that summer is over, many are looking forward to fall and of course, winter. For those who are looking to change their hairstyle to keep up with the season, here are some of the best hairstyles to sport:

The Fringe

The Fringe is a hairstyle that has been around for years. It’s a hairstyle that never goes out of style but just continues to evolve. What’s different this year is that the style is sported by women who have short cropped hair. Nonetheless, it’s still suitable with any hair length.

Textured Fringe

If you were one of the women who sported the Short Shag from last season, it may have already grown longer for you to start playing around with. But instead of heading to your hairdresser to have your hair cut once again, you can actually let it grow longer. A good way to sport this is to leave your hair in loose waves. You can even add brow-skimming bangs for a quick update from last season’s hairstyle. This will let you look younger and feel more playful.

Wavy A-Line Bob

In the past, many women were frightened to sport a bob hairstyle simply because they did not have straight hair. Thankfully, this is not the case anymore as more and more women have accepted their natural locks. The Wavy A-Line Bob is one of the best hairstyles for women who have naturally wavy hair.

Flipped Crop

One of the popular short hairstyles for women this year is the Cropped Bob. If you sported this throughout the year and you’re looking at giving it an update, you can have your hair styled in the Flipped Crop style. This hairstyle only requires you to have your hair cut short then flip all the volume onto one side. This hairstyle works for any hair as there’s always a way to keep hair flipped to one side and maintain it. If you’re not ready to cut your tresses, however, you can still sport the hairstyle by simply wearing a tight updo and let the shorter layers fall out in the front.

Contouring Cut

For a more sophisticated and stylish look, there’s always the Contouring Cut hairstyle. This is the perfect hairstyle for those who sported last season’s layers. It’s a great haircut that will show off your cheekbones and give your face a flattering frame. The key to this hairstyle is to keep this symmetrical. One way to achieve it is by parting hair at the precise center and keep things stick straight.

20s Waves

The 20s waves are making a comeback, especially for women who want to sport a flirty and playful hairstyle. Evident at Fashion Week, the hairstyle exudes its retro-ish chic feel on the slick-haired models.

The hairstyle is suitable for any hair length, just with a touch of the waves on the front.

Slick Sweepback

Just as its name suggests it to be, the Slick Sweepback is a hairstyle that pays attention to the slick style of the hair. With this hairstyle, the main attention is on your visage. Your hair is then tucked behind both ears with its straight strands shining behind. The good thing about this hairstyle is that it works best with any hair length so there’s no reason for you to cut your hair short, especially if you’re not ready for such a big step.

These hairstyles work for just about every woman. The key to rocking a trendy hairstyle is to own the look and use the right products to keep the hair healthy. And as always, confidence works best.
