Considering going short? You might as well go for a layered one. It'll set your new do apart from just any short hairstyle (read: blunt cuts) on top of other perks like giving your hair more texture, shape, and framing your features. And if you think you don't have that many options because of the length, think again! Layers open up so many possibilities for short hairstyles that it might even be impossible to choose. You don't need to worry about that last part though, because we collected some of the chicest options below.
Looking for ideas? Consider these short layered haircuts for your next salon session:
1. Lob with inner layers
Lobs are already a no-brainer, but you could easily take it to the next level with a bunch of inner cuts. These are basically layers cut from the inside of your hair, which will help texturize your locks so you can skip any dramatic chops. You'll love it if you're looking for a timeless, non-boring chop!
2. Soft layered lob
To add bounce and texture to uniform-length hair, ask your stylist a chic bob with soft layers. FYI, this style is best paired with side bangs, mostly because it'll blend right in and frame yourself almost effortlessly.
3.Blunt textured bob
The straight, sleek look of a blunt definitely isn't for everyone. If you have thin or flat hair, for example, you could opt for a more textured finish to create the illusion of fuller locks.
4. Chin length bob with soft layers
Face-framing layers can make any short chop feel less daunting. Depending on your face shape, you can try adding side bangs or a wispy fringe to the mix. Or, you can have your stylist opt for choppy ends instead of a blunt one to get a more fuss-free feel.
5. Bob with blunt layers
If you can't quite commit to the hime cut just yet, pairing blunt cheek-length layers with a bob can get you halfway there. To achieve a subtler finish, consider adding a full fringe that will help balance the boldness of the style.
6. Short shag cut
Not a layer minimalist? Go for a classic shag. The pronounced layers will create such a unique shape on any hair type, allowing you to get away with minimal styling on the daily.
7. Soft voluminous shag
Shag haircuts aren't just for people who need a ton of extra volume and texture. You can pull it off with thick hair, too, just ask your stylist for longer layers!
8. Shag cut with micro bangs
Nothing beats how good the shag looks with micro bangs. Not only will it give your 'do a dash of rock 'n' roll, it's also a flattering style for oval and angular faces since it highlights the upper half of your mug.
9. Short mullet
If a long pixie cut and a mullet had a baby, it would be this hairstyle right here. It'll give you the best of those trendy hairstyles' worlds with half the commitment, and who can say no to that?
10. Textured bob with curtain bangs
When in doubt, combine a textured 'do with a soft fringe to achieve a well-balanced look. A bob with curtain bangs is by the far the most foolproof option, especially if you have thick hair!
11. A-line bob with soft layers
A-line bobs are a match made in heaven for round faces. The angular cut will help accentuate your jawline, while the subtle layers will add shape and bounce to your locks.
12. Pixie cut with bangs
If it's your first time getting a pixie, pair it with a brow-length fringe and choppy layers to provide your mug more coverage. It'll make your locks appear less flat, too, which is a must if you have naturally fine hair.
13. Cropped pixie
For fans of ultra short chops, you'll love the vibe of a cropped pixie. While the layered effect in this cut is as subtle as can be, the drama it'll give your hair is exactly what makes it worth your while.
