Haircuts based on the face shape

The first thing you should remember is that you should always take the shape of your face into consideration when choosing a short haircut. If you are a fan of super trendy pixies, this haircut is perfect for most face shapes including oval, square, round and heart-shaped faces. 
Another trendy short haircut is a bob with bangs and it works great on oval, heart and long face shapes. A long bob with a length bellow your chin looks great on heart-shaped faces. If you have a round face, the recommendation is to avoid jaw-length bobs.
Short hairstyles and hair products
When it comes to styling your short haircut, you can use many hair products including wax, wet gel, styling lotion pomade and gel wax. It all depends on the styling you want to achieve. Another advice is to use volumizing styling products if you have short hair. In simple terms, these haircuts need volume otherwise they will not look flattering. You can opt for styling mousse, spray or powder. Remember to apply the volumizing styling products near the root. When it comes to basic hair products, use products which moisturize and condition your scalp. Dandruff is much more visible if you have short hair.
Curling short hair
We have said that you always need to add extra volume to short hair. One way of doing it is curling your hair. If you use a curling iron, consider using one with 2.5 cm diameter. Another advice is to leave the ends straight otherwise curls can stick out from your head and it does not look good if you have short hair.

What to avoid
There are some common mistakes women who have short hair make. For example, even though you should use the styling products we recommended, do not overdo it. You do not want to get too slick with a gel. Do not apply to much heat. Split ends do not look flattering on short hair. Avoid those hairstyle which have extra volume at the crown. It simply looks old-fashioned.
