Our Favorite Short Hairstyles to Try in 2019
No matter the season, there’s always a case to make for short hair. During the winter, short hair works better while you’re rocking chunky turtlenecks and trying to avoid accidentally catching rogue long strands in your jacket zipper. (Ouch.) But come summertime, that sweaty neck isn’t going to cool itself off, especially when the Mercury just keeps rising. Luckily, there are more than enough trendy short hairstyles to try in 2019 that you won’t be getting bored anytime soon. This year, it’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone. We’ve got the “glass hair” trend bringing ultra-shiny, smooth, and silky straight cuts to the table; and we’re seeing all types of fringe-fabulous bangs take off, too. From layered lobs to blunt bobs, classic crops to perfect pixies, these short hair ideas will have you ready to grab those shears. Well, maybe leave that part to your stylist.
These styles are all about creating volume.
The lob-length cut will never go out of style. Glass hair—a.k.a. shiny, straight, silky strands—is trending well into 2019, and this example masters it.
