A modern pixie, an unstructured bob, the pompadour, a super-short, edgy cut and the shag are five short haircuts that are cute for women, according to About.com. The demi-bob, or long bob, is also very popular, as of 2015.
The modern pixie is an edgy, boyish cut that can still be feminine, sexy and sophisticated. The choppy and texturized features can turn it into a funky, cute look. The bangs are typically cut long to allow for numerous styling options. Women with naturally wavy, thick hair who have square, oval or heart-shaped faces are best suited to a pixie cut.
As long as a shag does not have so many layers that it looks as if it came from the 1980s, it is a very contemporary and trendy hairstyle. Choppy ends, lots of texture and heavy layering around the crown characterize the shag. The messy and effortless look is deliberately designed to invoke the casual image of bedhead. The shag cut is flexible, amenable to many different hair lengths and textures.
Pop stars like Miley Cyrus and Pink sport the style known as a pompadour, also called the quiff or faux hawk. The sides of the head are either shaved or the hair is pressed flat against the head to give the appearance of being shaved. The hair in the crown area is heavily teased and spiky.
