There are many choices to make in life and choosing a short hairstyle is as important as many so to help you in yor decision there are plenty here.

What haircut to choose next is a perennial cycle of decisions for many women. Historically women were expected to have long hair and to go shorter could mean a rebellious nature. In recent decades a shorter look has become perfectly acceptable. Some iconic looks in history are:
The pixie - you cannot talk about short hair without considering the pixie, pioneered by Twiggy, Mia Farrow and Vidal Sassoon models in the 1960s its as relevant now as ever. Nowadays many celebrities sport many versions of the pixie such as Victoria Beckham, Michelle Williams, Emma Watson, Anne Hathaway and Pink, making the pixie cut and its variants one of the most sought after haircuts all over the world for so many years.
The bob - another popular cut from years back is the bob. Medium length hair underwent major transformation when the bob came around. The good thing about the bob is it can also be curled into soft waves ala flapper girls and socialite Zelda Fitzgerald in the roaring '20s and Jackie O's bob.
The bowl cut - thanks to the mop top of The Beatles, women answered with their versions that have straight bangs/fringe. The bowl cut has undergone many versions in recent years with asymmetrical ends and feathered tips.
Voluminous curls - who can forget the Marilyn Monroe and Madonna hairdo? It might have been several decades since they started the trend but short voluminous curls are still very much alive especially at formal events.
The shaved crop - not everyone can pull off a shaved crop like Demi Moore or Natalie Portman so women who can are extra eye-catching. Women who prefer it short have varied reasons, some want a radical change; some want a lighter feeling or freedom from the weight of long tresses, others simply got tired of the time, effort and money that go into maintaining long locks. Whatever your reasons are for wanting a shorter 'do, it is important to take into consideration the shape of your face, your lifestyle and personality too. Short hairstyles bring a gush of fresh air to the typical long tresses that need a lot of maintenance and time. If you don't want to keep tucking your hair at the back of your ear every 5 minutes and don't want to spend hours trying to tame the strands then a close cut hair style is a must. Here is a gallery of all the short haircuts imaginable and many that can be achieved in less than 5 minutes and are great for every occasion.
• Bangs or a Fringe - Who said fringes are only for long hair. If you have a slightly longer bob, then you can wear sexy bangs to makeover your look. Aligned bangs that fall just over the eyebrows look great with straight hair. However, if you have wavy hair, then you can choose side-swept bangs to change the way you look and feel, they are the most endearing style of this season.
• Spikes - An exclusive hairstyle for cropped hair, a few spikes can make you look like a punk or a rocker. Not only this, when teamed up with softer and girlish accessories, they can even give you a very feminine but bold look. Heart shaped and longer faces can carry this look off very nicely. If you want to say 'look at me,
I have arrived' without uttering a single word, spikes are what you need. They are instant attention gatherers.
• Crops and Chops - Are becoming the most popular close cut styles this season. If you want to look a little messy and make a statement at the same time, you must get your hair cropped at the back and chopped at the side. These uneven asymmetrical cuts make you look like you came straight out of bed whether you have or not. They also add volume and if your hair is already thick, you don't really need to do much. However, if your hair is thinner, then you must use some protein mousse and a hard styling gel to pull of this look. Make sure it looks good or you can really appear like you didn't care about touching your hair after you got up.
• Curves or curls - Most hairstyles are compatible with inward or outward curves at the end of the strand. It all depends on what look you want to sport. If you want to frame your face, then inward curls are better and if you want to make it appear rebellious and messy, then outward curls would be your choice. .

You will want to regularly shampoo and condition your hair and use the right types of products. To keep your hair in the best position possible, be sure to use shampoos and conditioners that are organic and derived from plants and natural compounds.

Hair color changes depending on how much sunlight it is exposed to. For this reason, you need to consider coloring your hair based on the specific season that you are in.
