14 Best Pixie Cuts and Bobs for Your Face Shape
Is your hairstyle boring you? Go for bold with one of these trendy bobs. Here's the info you need to find the most flattering short hairstyle for you
While we're often game to take the risks when it comes to dining, dating, and even our stock options, why is it that we always take the safe route when it comes to our hair?
Skip ahead to see the hottest pixie cuts and bobs for your face shape.
If you're still wearing the same long, wavy hairstyle you've had since your brace-face years, now may be the best time to get out of your styling rut. Vince Smith, owner of Vince Smith Hair Experience in New York City, says that while women have been asking for the same cut for a while now (long layers), there has recently been a shift in hairstyle trends: Women going shorter -- way shorter.
"There are always cycles when it comes to trends," says Smith. "The trendsetters start things; the close followers go next; then when it's safe to assume the trend is here to stay, the A-listers will get on the style-train," says Smith. To wit: Carey Mulligan, Michelle Williams, and Keira Knightley all recently took the pixie plunge -- and look better for it. Still not convinced you should go short? What if we told you that your new, stunning 'do will come with a shot of confidence?
Amy Wechsler, MD, a psychiatrist in New York City, says women who have short hair "take risks, are independent, and are more comfortable in their skin" than their long-haired counterparts. Smith agrees, saying, "Wearing your hair shorter allows your true beauty and confidence to show. A short hairstyle can really accentuate your best features, like your eyes, lips, or a graceful, long neck."
A sexy, confidence-boosting cut seems like a much safer risk to take than investing in the volatile stock (or dating!) market -- and it has a way bigger beauty payout. So why not see the short haircuts that'll flatter your face shape now? Read on for the looks that'll work best on you.
