15 Haircut Options for Brides with Short Tresses!
All throughout my childhood years, I like most of the girls who binge-watched Disney shows. I was totally in love with the all the Disney princesses, particularly Rapunzel! If you ask me why, the reason was the flowy, luscious, long golden locks she possessed. It was simply mesmerizing to see how Rapunzel used her magical tresses! However, this craze wore off over the years, when I actually began understanding what goes into pulling off thick, long hair.
This led me to think how more brides these days are opting for shorter hair. Some are opting for this owing to a shorter haircut involving lesser maintenance, lesser knots, being more manageable, easy to handle and maybe saving up on the shampoo and conditioner expenses :-P. However, some brides just love keeping their hair short because of the ultra-modish looks it adds to their overall personality.
If you are all set to tie the knot but are confused which style will actually suit you most and make your picture insta-worthy, I have a list of haircuts for you which you can experiment with based on the shape of your face:
Heart shaped face
Features: Wide hairlines, wide cheeks, and narrow chins.
Celebrities with this face shape: Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Kourtney Kardashian.
1. Long bob haircut
Classic and universal, this haircut is extremely flattering on almost all face shapes. It gives length to the face and the face looks a lot less wide.
2. Bob with Bangs
This haircut is heavy around the chin, making the face look less wide, thus balancing the overall look.
3. Sleek crop haircut
This haircut doesn’t take the attention away from the wideness of the face shape, but it, in fact, draws more attention to it. You could ask your hairstylist to keep it a couple of inches longer if you are conscious about your overall look.
Feature: If your forehead, cheekbones and chin are all of the same width, you have a round shape.
Celebrities with this face shape: Kate Bosworth, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Drew Barrymore.
The key to making this hairstyle work is adding as much volume as possible. It is a great alternative if you want a contemporary look while it being easily manageable.
2. Bob cut
A bob cut with a round face is a tad bit risky, so you have to be careful (and choose a good stylist)! Owing to the versatility of the style, you can try it. But, make sure you don’t chop it off too short.
3. Sleek angled Bob
An incredibly good option for those who aren’t quite ready to take the plunge and chop off their locks, all at once! This can turn out to be a flattering haircut if done right. Keep the long layers in the front and the shorter ones at the back to nail this look!
Long shaped face
Features: Broad cheekbones, elongated forehead, and a pointy jaw make up a long shaped face.
Celebrities with this face shape: Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashlee Simpson, and Alexa Chung
1. Layered curls
A great haircut to draw attention away from your long chin. Make sure you get them cut in many layers to add the extra volume. This will make it look pretty and nothing like a messy fluff ball.
2. Sleek Bob
Fashionable, easy to maintain and contemporary- this hairstyle will complement those who have a long face. A definite pick especially for women who have fine hair.
3. Razor cut bob
Bored with a normal haircut? This is a must-try, especially if you have straight or wavy hair. However, it is best to avoid this if you have really curly hair. You could also add a fringe to add volume and draw attention away from the length of your face.
Oval shape face
Features: The highlight is that the cheekbones are the widest part of the face, whereas the forehead and jaw are rounded.
Celebrities with this face shape: Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba, and Selma Hayek.
1. Blunt Bob
Stuck between wanting short hair, while not want it to be tooooo short? I suggest this is your pick then! However, don’t go in for this if you have curly or poker straight hair. It is best suited for those who have natural waves- adding volume to the oval shape of your face.
2. Angled Bob
This ultra-modern style is a perfect pick for those with an oval shape. Preferably, keep the length between the chin and shoulder.
3. Layered Shag
Low maintenance, volume and an edgy look- this hairstyle is most likely to suit those with the oval face shape. A great pick even for those who have relatively lifeless hair.
Square shaped face
Features: If your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw are in equal width, you have a square shaped face.
Celebrities with this face shape: Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Demi Moore.
1. Lopsided bob
An asymmetrical haircut, in which one side is long while the other is shorter. It takes the boredom and monotony away from a regular, classic bob cut. Although pixies and short chops are no less attractive, there is something about this hairstyle that adds a charm to the overall look.
2. Sleek short haircut
If you have a square-shaped face and fine hair- this haircut is meant for you!
Disclaimer- If you have wavy or curly hair, beware of the maintenance.
3. Shoulder length haircut
A good pick to flatter your jawline, this is an ideal cut for those with wavy and curly hair. If you don’t want this to look less bottom heavy, you could ask your hairstylist to add soft layers.
Are you gals ready to go all chop chop?
