Another of the favorite hairstyles worn by young women and teenagers with short hair would be the bobbed haircut. This haircut can be worn with layers, bangs or highlights to create the soft but feminine touch to what would otherwise be a severe look. The bob can also be cut asymmetrical to create a hairstyle that is funky but nonetheless feminine. Another alteration of the bob haircut with a soft feminine approach is the A_line bob hairstyle; flipped inwards to create a sophisticated look with a futuristic appeal. The mature woman however will neither go for the flipped out short hairstyle nor the A_line bobbed hairstyle. Instead she looks for a hairstyle for her hair that is conservative but not severe; trendy but not flamboyant; manageable but not plain. The short bob with a high crown and low side is ideal for the mature woman with the long thin face. This hairstyle however is softened by a side path and a simple bang that just teases over the forehead or at the side of the face. Highlights and side burns are other creative modifications that the mature woman could choose to incorporate into her short hairstyle.
Different factors play a role in determining which style would suit you best. Whether you opt for pixie, shaggy, bob, pageboy or any other short style it is important to take the texture of your hair, shape of your face and lifestyle into consideration. Knowing what type of face you have can make choosing a flattering short hairstyle much easier. By using a photo where you look straight at the camera and cutting out your face, you can quite easily determine the shape. If you are one of those lucky individuals with an oval face, you can wear anything from pixie to sleek with a center parting. Hair swept back from the face will enhance and bring out your features. Extra heavy bangs that cover your features should be avoided.
