26 Cute Short Haircuts That Aren’t Pixies

(Canada Goose Jackets Online: )

When it comes to cute short haircuts, it can feel like pixies are your only option. That’s certainly not the case, though. Not all short cute haircuts require going full Mia Farrow with a gaminesque close-crop. No, it turns out there are so many other flattering ways to flaunt short hair, from layered shaggy bobs paired with long bangs, to ultra-hip undercuts.

Suffice it to say, you have options. You could always keep your new cute short haircut trendy by rocking a fun color trend like rose gold hair. Or you could mix things up by going for something asymmetrical for an extra of-the-moment bit of flair — or, on the flip side, you could go full-on retro. Really, the world is your oyster — so read on for the 26 best short haircuts that aren’t pixies.

Edgy Stacked Bob

Edgy Stacked Bob This stylishly mussed up short haircut strikes the perfect balance between a sassy pixie and an adorable bob. The result? A cute short haircut that’s equal parts edgy and aw-inspiring.

Soft Shag

Soft Shag Lucy Hale has long had one of the best short haircuts in Hollywood — the waviness of her bob gives it lots of youthful movement that’s ridiculously flattering.

Lavender Textured Bob

Lavender Textured Bob This cute short haircut combines two of today’s hottest hair trends — lavender hair and shaggy bobs — to a devastatingly adorable effect. Get us some peroxide, stat!

Wavy Pob

Wavy Pob We apologize for our use of the portmanteau of “pixie” and “bob,” but it just fits this kicky short haircut so perfectly. This stacked, textured look is at once forgiving and daring — in other words, an ideal choice for your next big hair change.

Purple Ombre With an Undercut

Purple Ombre With an Undercut Can you say “hair goals”? This next-level look has a lot going on — from the undercut to the deep amethyst roots — but somehow it all comes together to create quite the cute short haircut.

Laidback Bob

Laidback Bob Short haircuts can get a bad rap for being overly severe, but this sweet and romantic look definitely proves otherwise.

Asymmetrical Wavy Bob

Asymmetrical Wavy Bob Everything about this short, cute haircut epitomizes a young, carefree spirit, right? Asymmetrical looks can take some extra courage to attempt, but the cool-factor payoff makes it worth it.

Rose Gold Asymmetrical Undercut

Rose Gold Asymmetrical Undercut When it comes to this year’s biggest hair trend, this cute short haircut checks all the boxes. Rose gold? Check. Asymmetrical? Check. Side-striped undercut? Check.

Sporty Bob

Sporty Bob An avant-garde short haircut can be fun, but honestly? Often, a simple style hits the spot. Case in point: this no-nonsense bob. It’s unfussy and lets your face be the center of attention, while also adding an element of Parisian glam.

Ultra-Classic Retro Pageboy

Ultra-Classic Retro Pageboy Sometimes the most fashion-forward hairstyles come from the past. Take for example, this razor-sharp style, which calls silent film star Louise Brooks to mind. It’s simple, classic and consummately chic. In short, it’s the perfect way to take cute short haircuts from earlier eras and bring them into the new millennium.

Lavender A-Line Haircut

Lavender A-Line Haircut Here’s another classic look — with a pretty major twist. This cute short haircut takes the retro glamour of that iconic Nancy Kwan/Vidal Sassoon bob, and merges it with completely of-the-moment lavender locks.

Short Beach Waves

Short Beach Waves Usually, we tend to associate free-spirited boho beach waves with long, flowing locks, but this look proves that it’s possible for shorter haired ladies to get in on the popular je ne sais quoi-infused hair style.

Piecey Bob with Pink Balayage

Piecey Bob with Pink Balayage Hilary Duff’s been a hair icon since her days on “Lizzie McGuire,” and lately she’s been experimenting with various pastel shades, as well cropped locks. This pink balayage short haircut strikes the perfect balance between cutesy and edgy.

Voluminous Pixie-Bob

Voluminous Pixie-Bob Not quite ready to make the full pixie commitment? This voluminous and asymmetrical rock ‘n’ roll look is a little longer than your average close crop, yet still short and textured enough for that daring, devil-may-care glam.

Some of our styles are just begging to be a part of certain costumes. You just look at them, and it’s like how could you not? Take the Yvett slipper. Topped with a fluffy pom, it screams Tinker Bell. And the 70’s vibes evoked by the Kassi and Cam II? You can’t help but play those up as Penny Lane from Almost Famous. Scroll and explore the possibilities.

Peter Pan

Coordinate with Peter Pan by going as Tinker Bell in the Yvett. This slipper couldn’t be more perfect unless we covered it in glitter.

The golden tint to the Neumel Wheat is perfect for any bird costume, really. We just found this penguin option hilarious. Happy feet indeed.


Pin It > Werewolf in UGG Boots

Guys, there’s no reason to be scared of wearing your Classic boots in public this Halloween, especially since you’ll be the one doing the scaring.

Pin It > Easy Pilot Costume

With distressed materials inspired by the classic bomber jackets, the Selwood Bomber lends itself perfectly to a pilot costume. All you need are some tan pants, a white tee, a leather jacket, and goggles. Top it off with a trapper hat that you can use for non-costume looks when winter hits.

Ski Bunny

If you don’t want to put in too much effort or you’re just worried about getting cold, pair a cozy boot like the Patten with gloves, a hat, and a scarf. Add some ski poles or goggles for a costume that is more chalet chic than basic.

Fall and Winter Hairstyles

Fall and winter aren’t easy on our manes. Between the wind, static, and rain, there are far too many bad hair days. In an effort to limit them, we brought in a professional to show us a few styles that even the most cosmetology-challenged will be able to do.

(Canada Goose Online: )

Pin It > Everyday Chignon

First up, the everyday chignon. When done in an undone way, this elegant style won’t seem at odds with your denim and knits. It also pairs quite beautifully with earmuffs.

Pin It > Easy Chignon

Prep the hair with texturizing spray. (We like Bumble and bumble. Thickening Hairspray.) Tease from the apex of the head to the nape of the neck in 1” sections. Curl hair in 2” sections by wrapping it around the barrel of a curling iron. Split the hair into three sections: two on the side and one on the back. Roll hair from either side into place at the nape of the neck and secure with bobby pins. Wrap the third section up and over the two pinned sections. Have fun! It doesn’t need to be perfect. The more texture, the better.

Pin It > Shoelace Braid

Now don’t get scared. This shoelace braid looks a lot harder than it is. This eye-catching style will be perfect for date night, a Thanksgiving get-together, or the office holiday party.

Pin It > Shoelace Braid How To

Prep the hair with a texturizing hairspray. Curl the hair in 1” sections by wrapping it around the iron to create beachy waves. Part the hair with a dramatic side part. Take a 2” section and divide at the top of the head. Tie the two pieces together as you would with any ribbon or lace and continue for the length of the hair. Spray each loop with hairspray as you finish. Secure with a bobby pin.

Pin It > Headband Updo

We love our headbands—all the warmth with none of the hat hair woes—but we wanted to find a better way to wear them than with our hair down or in a plain ponytail. Enter this voluminous, retro-inspired updo.

Pin It > Headband Hairstyle

Prep the hair with a texturizing spray. Tease at the crown in 1” sections. Pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with hair elastic. Wrap hair around the elastic to hide. Tease the remaining hair from the ponytail to create the look of a full, messy bun. Secure the ends with bobby pins, leaving a few pieces out for a tousled look. Finish with hairspray.

Makeup Mistakes That Make You Look Older

No Blush

Our faces lose color as we age, leading to a washed out complexion that makes blush all the more important. Blend a cream formula onto the apples of your cheeks for a lit-from-within glow.

Too Much Foundation

Caked on foundation brings out wrinkles because the product settles into fine lines. Instead, use a damp sponge to apply a single light layer of moisturizing foundation (not matte or long-wearing), which will hydrate skin and deemphasize creases.

Too Much Concealer Under the Eyes

Dark bags under the eyes can age you, but caking on the concealer can draw attention to the problem. Choose a richly pigmented, creamy stick concealer, which gives you coverage without having to cake on product.

Dark Lipstick

As we age, our lips become thinner, and dark lip colors actually make the mouth look smaller. Stick to bright or light-colored lipsticks and add a dab of gloss in the center to plump your pout.

Eyeliner Around the Entire Eye

Solid dark eye liner can be very harsh, creating sharp lines that can bring out crow’s feet and make eyes look smaller. Thick liner on the upper lashes can also make lids look heavier. Instead, line only the outer three quarters of the eye, and smudge your liner with a Q-tip or angled brush to soften the look. Use a brightening shade to highlight the inner corners.

Mascara on Lower Lashes

You’ve been told time and time again, applying mascara on the lower lashes will make your eyes look bigger. But when you get older, this trick can actually make eyes look droopy. Instead, stick to emphasizing the upper lashes to keep your look from becoming bottom-heavy.

Too Thin Eyebrows

Eyebrows actually thin and fade with age, which is why fuller brows make most faces look more youthful. Use an angled brush to fill in sparse brows with a powder one shade lighter than your natural brow color.

Too Much Bronzer

Wearing bronzer over the entire face can make you look older. Instead stick to the ‘C’ formation — on the temples, along the sides of the face and right under the cheekbones.
