As the temperatures begin to rise, many women are desperate to find flirty and fun hairstyles that can help take a bit of weight and heat off of their head. The good news is there are a wide variety of short summer hairstyles that can fit beautifully on virtually any face shape.
If you’ve always admired short hairstyles, but believe you couldn’t pull one off for yourself, it could be that you simply haven’t chosen the right style.
Read on for some of our favorite short hairstyles looks for the summer.
The Benefits of a New Summer Haircut
The summer is a time that should be spent on adventures, with family, or traveling to exotic places. Which means a low maintenance hairstyle is a perfect fit.
In addition to the fact that you’ll save plenty of time on styling your hair, you’ll also find it becomes much easier to stay cool with short hair. Finally, the summer is a great time to experiment with new looks and styles that can give you an extra confidence boost!
The Edgy Pixie
The edgy pixie cut is reminiscent of our favorite mod 60s look. The edgy pixie features bold lines and straightforward bangs that create a retro look perfect for diamond shaped space.

The Flirty Pixie
If you’re looking for a more feminine pixie style, the flirty pixie look incorporates a number of layers for a more sultry look that’s both soft and timeless.
This cut looks beautiful on diamond and heart-shaped faces, and can easily be dressed up or dress down.

An A-line Bob
An A-line bomb is a perfect way to get the benefits of a short haircut without committing to taking too much hair off.
This cut starts off shorter in the back allowing you to take more weight off of your neck, then grows longer towards the front.
While a-line bobs could involve their own flirty layers, the look is typically found with more even cuts and lines.

Wavy Bobs are the perfect way to get that fresh, romantic, beach look while still taking off some extra inches.
This look involves a mid-neck to jawline cut that works well for naturally wavy hair, or hair with fuller curls.
Another benefit of this length of bob is that it can also be easily swept up with just a few hairclips or pins.

A Gentleman Cut
Similar to the edgy pixie, the gentleman cut takes a bold twist on short hairstyles by creating a more clean-cut and slightly masculine look.
Instead of incorporating bangs, the gentleman cut is typically brushed to the side pixie look that resembles that of a clean-cut gentleman.
But don’t be fooled, a woman can easily look feminine while still sporting the gentleman cut. Just check out actress and Chanel representative Keira Knightley with her stunning and perfectly fitting gentlemen pixie.
The Faux Hawk
Ready to release your inner badass? The faux hawk has an incredible way of making you feel like a rock star all summer long without actually having to shave your head. However, you could also shave your head on the sides if that’s what you’re going for.
A faux hawk, for the sake of this article, involves much shorter lengths on the sides with a longer length left on the top to create a style similar to traditional Mohawks.
The beauty of this look is that it can easily be curled or styled in a number of ways giving you more flexibility and range on your haircut.

Haircut Russian Roulette
If you’re feeling particularly bold, you can always leave your hairstyle and cut in the hands of your hairstylist.
If you have a hairstylist with ample experience in layering and short cuts, they may already have a perfect hairstyle in mind for your particular face and head shape.
You can show them a few inspiration photos before giving them carte blanche on creating a look that you love.
While it may seem like leaving your hairstyle in the hands of someone else requires an extra feat of bravery, remember, it’s just hair and it can always grow back.
Not to mention the fact that when it does grow back it will be fresh, healthy hair that hasn’t been heat or color treated. Talk about a fresh start.
