Super short haircuts on women go in and out of style frequently. Starting in the 1920s and going up until modern times, there have been a series of short haircut styles that have become popular. It is important to keep in mind when getting a short haircut that while it may be easier to clean your hair while it is so short, it is not always easier to style it that way. There are also certain facial shapes and types that work better with short haircuts than others do. It is a good idea to look at a lot of different pictures and discuss options with your hairstylist before making the decision to cut off all of your hair.

Pixie Short Haircut

Pixie Short Haircut

One of the most popular super short haircuts first gained attention in the 1960s. The pixie cut is characterized by very short length on the back and sides of the head, with a little bit longer length on top. It is the womenís haircut that most resembles a manís haircut, and can be as short as half an inch in some places. It is usually layered somewhat to give the look texture, and can be worn just as it dries, or styled up with product.

Bob Short Haircut

Bob Short Haircut

In the 1920s the bob cut first became popular. This cut is often longer than the pixie, though the length is really determined by personal preference. In the bob, the hair is cut straight around the head at the jaw level (or shorter) and bangs are cut over the eyes. Some women alter this cut to an A-line, where the back is shorter than the sides. There are many different ways to wear a bob cut, including parting it in the middle or to the side, as well as curling or straightening the hair.
