Short Cuts for the Summer!

Summer is here, so how about doing some short styles and trying something new! 


I like to think that the pixie cut is a great option when it comes to short hairstyles for summer because it looks very cute and feminine. Not to mention, it’s so easy to maintain if you are plagued with thick curly hair, and you will definitely stay cool in the heat this summer.


Even if you opt out of bangs, a bob can still look stunning on any woman, and I have to say that it is one of my favorite short hairstyles for summer. I love the bob because I think it can be so great when styled the right way, and you don’t have to go through the whole ordeal of cutting off all of your hair, which can definitely be too traumatic for some people.


So before you make a judgment, hear me out: a girly mohawk comes in all shapes and styles. I like the girly mohawk as one of the short hairstyles for summer because it’s daring, sexy and you really only live once, so why not try something different? Everyone has different tastes, but a girly mohawk can be really flattering on some people. I think it’s a great option if you want to add some style in a short haircut as opposed to the alternatives which can seem lifeless and flat, especially if you have very straight, thin hair.


This is a great option when it comes to short hairstyles for summer simply because it’s one of the most practical, but still fashionable and sexy. I think, despite popular belief, that there are many different things you can do with a gamine style haircut, one of them being wearing a headband or pinning back the front bangs with a bobby pin or bow. Plus, it will keep you cool in the unbearable heat of summer!


The difference between the cropped hairstyle and the pixie is that the cropped style is longer on the sides and back, so it isn’t quite a pixie or bob, but it’s sort of in between. I also love a cropped haircut as one of the short hairstyles for summer because it isn’t quite as dramatic as a gamine or pixie but it’s definitely short enough to keep you cool in the summer sun. I’ve seen a lot of older women with this hairstyle but I don’t see why younger women can’t also wear it.


Living in New York, I have seen many women and men take on the undercut hairstyle. I think some people attribute this style to the so-called “hipster” movement but it’s still of one the best short hairstyles for summer. Here’s why: if you aren’t ready to essentially shave off all your hair and go gamine, but you really want to keep your hair as short as possible to avoid the heat this summer, the undercut is a great compromise. The undercut is pretty much self-explanatory in some sense; basically, the hair is cut from underneath but it gets covered from hair on the top. Even if you don’t really consider yourself a hipster, or punk, or whatever label you want to include, the undercut is definitely in fashion right now. You can even keep your hair longer on the top and only undercut it on one side if you want to.


A reverse mullet is ideal as one of the short hairstyles for summer, because your hair is almost completely off your neck but you still have some length in the front. At first glance, most people don’t even realize that the back part of your hair is shorter than the front. Overall it’s a very chic and sexy option to beat the summer heat without completely cutting off all of your hair.
