Although a good number of women love voluminous, long curls; some find short hairstyles as more practical and hassle-free but can’t decide which is best for them.


If you’re in this boat, here’s a list of stylish short hairstyles that will leave you looking dashing at every event;

Mini Afro

The mini afro is a timeless hairstyle that gives you a gorgeous look with very little effort. With the right hair conditioner, you easily maintain your beautiful natural locks in its short length.



If you love to stand out of the crowd with a hint of edginess, then you should probably try out the Mowhawk. To achieve this, shave down hairs on the left and right sides of your head, and then leave a long strip of hair in the middle. The long middle hair can also be made into braids using colourful hair extensions.

It is simply the definition of short, simple and chic. The buzz haircut is an ultra-short cut. A quick visit to the saloon for a literal low-cut is how you can get a buzz-cut. This hairstyle exudes self-confidence and a distinctly feminine style.

Short dreadlocks

Dreadlocks don’t have to be always long and heavy, a short mass of cute dreads can make great fashion impressions too. Shorts dreads are great for a fashionable lively glow.

Tinted short twists


Nothing brings attention to short hair like a mass of colour-popping hairstyle. From blonde to copper red or bright grey, your short twisted hair comes alive with these beautiful colours.

 Side-parted pixie
