Have you always wanted to chop your hair off and go for a short hair change but don’t know what style would suit you? Aside from the obvious low maintenance benefits of having shorter hair, you can actually create some eye-catching looks that bring out your facial features and add a new dimension to your style. If you’re after some inspiration, our Franck Provost Beecroft hair salon team has come up with the perfect guide to short haircuts sharing with you all the benefits of having short hair, as well as trending styles & celebrities that rock the perfect short cut.
Easy styling and less time getting ready – Forget spending hours in front of the mirror with a curling wand or straighteners on your long hair. Shorter hairstyles can be dried and styled within minutes so set your morning alarm a little bit later and enjoy a little lie-in!
Showcase your facial features – A short haircut is the perfect way to show off your eyes, those brows that are on fleek or those perfectly contoured cheekbones.
No tangles – We all know one of the most annoying things about having longer hair is the tangles! These tangles will be a thing of the past once you’re rocking a shorter style.
Use less shampoo and conditioner – Now we all know that professional salon-quality products like L’oreal and Kerastase go a long way. But just imagine how much longer they’ll last you now that you only have to use a tiny pea-sized amount when washing your hair.
Fuller looking hair – Short haircuts work well on fine hair types as they help to increase volume! It’s simple – the less hair you have through the mid-lengths and ends, the less your roots are weighed down. A short haircut is pretty much an instant bulk boost for your hair!
Cooler in the Summer – Fed up of getting all hot and bothered in the summer? Those long and heavy tresses will only hold in the heat. Go for the chop and enjoy the incredibly cool feeling of shorter hair in the summer.
No split ends – All of your hair will look and feel gorgeously healthy after a cut meaning that you can wave goodbye to split ends!
Can’t wait to choose a short haircut or do you still need more convincing?

A gloriously feminine short style that can be flattering at any age. It’s at that length between a bob and a short crop. The sweepy side fringe is a beautiful way to play with asymmetry and also a great tool to soften your features. Can be worn with a wavy texture for a party edit or styled with different clips and grips to create endlessly different looks. The team at our Paddington hairdresser can give you more information if you’re interested.
This style is giving us major rock-chick vibes! Lengths through the top are left long and sweepy, whilst the underneath is disconnected and worn short – either super short and buzzed for the brave or soft and scissor cut for a more feminine feel. This style is surprisingly versatile due to the length through the top which can be worn in any direction and with the texture of your choice.
Take any short haircut to another level and go platinum blonde! It’s the perfect time to be daring and try out the colour that you’ve always wanted to try but have steered clear from for fear of drying out your long hair. Platinum blonde is also the perfect canvas if you want to take your colour experimentation further with pastel and poppy colours.
These textural layered short bobs are a mash-up of the super trendy ‘shag’ haircut and a bob. By loading a bob with messy layers, texture and fringe it transforms the cut into a modern and dynamic style that’s short…but not too short! These kind of bobs work great with an un-done feel that’s rich with movement.
This is an absolute classic that pretty much never falls off of the trends radar. Cut to the chin or higher with minimal layering to leave that beautiful heavy weight line around the perimeter. These styles look fab worn straight, wavy and curly!
Get high and mighty with a quiff. A fantastic way to dress up many shorter haircuts for a party look. You’ll need to get nifty with a bit of back-combing and some hairspray, but once you’re there it’s a total show-stopper. Great way to show off some jazzy earrings also!
Less about product and more about feathery internal layers and soft wispy, touchable edges that fall perfectly into place every time you put your hands through your hair. This look is as much a smart daytime work look when worn swept to the side as it is a funky evening look when worked forward and onto the face.
Tapered into the nape of the neck nice and tight with soft length left through the sides that are tucked behind the ears emphasising the longer lengths through the top. This kind of style is great for creating the illusion of body and volume.
This type of haircut is the absolute ultimate in short hairstyles, recommended for ladies who are looking to showcase their facial features. Its messy and edgy look can be easily styled within a matter of minutes with the right product. Experiment with different products for different spiked effects.
There’s no need to shy away from shorter hairstyles if you have naturally wavy or curly hair. In-fact many shorter hairstyles look even cuter and trendier when worn with a curl. The natural softness of waves and curls is a fantastic juxtaposition to the boldness of any short style.
