    Asymmetrical Short Hairstyles

    Who Does it Work For:  This short hair look works great on round, oval, heart, and square face shapes. It’s best for medium to thick hair. Take caution if you have fine textures, as this cut could make your hair look stringy.

    How to Style:  Apply a volumizing mousse on towel dried hair. Flip hair upside down and rough dry it with your fingers for extra volume. Use a flat iron to enhance a smooth finish to the haircut. Finish with a spray wax for a playful texture.

    Who Does it Work For: This short style looks great on oval, heart, square, and oblong face shapes (round face shapes generally want to steer clear of this one). It is an ideal cut for those of you with fine to medium textures of hair.

    How to Style: Apply a blow dry gel to towel dried hair. Quick dry hair until you have removed about half of the moisture and then use a round brush section by section. Touch up the bangs with a flat iron.

    Who Does it Work For: This style is good for oval, round, and most heart face shapes. It works best on fine and medium hair with a straight texture. If you have natural waves or curl, it will take extra styling.

    How to Style: Apply a medium hold gel to towel dried hair. Create a clean part and comb your hair back, in the way you want it to appear when styled. Allow the hair to dry naturally and then apply gloss drops for added shine and smoothness. Finish with an extra hold hairspray.

    Smooth or Wavy Bob

    Who Does it Work For: Jennifer Anniston obviously! But besides Jennifer, this hairstyle looks awesome on round, heart, oval, and square face shapes (this style can further elongate oblong face shapes). It also works great on fine, medium, and thick hair that’s straight or wavy.

    How to Style: Blow dry your hair with a flat brush section by section. For more fullness, rough dry hair upside down till your hair is mostly dry and finish with a round brush.  Touch it up with a flat iron for extra smoothness. Or, create big waves using a curling iron vertically in the hair with 1 to 2 inch sections. Finish with a flexible hold hairspray to lock in the style.

    Razored Pixie

    Who Does it Work For: This short hairstyle works on oval, heart, and oblong face shapes. It also works well with fine, medium, and thick hair. If you have wavy hair, ask your hairstylist if a razor cut is the best option for your texture (it varies from person to person).

    How to Style: Quick dry your hair with your fingers, blow drying against the natural growth on the top and smoothing down the sides and back. If needed, touch it up with a flat iron. Finish with a texture creme on dry hair to give the style definition, especially around the hairline.
