Some simple and practical short haircuts for women include bobs and pixie cuts. Other popular short styles that generally involve slightly more styling include short asymmetrical styles and fauxhawks or pompadours.
Bob haircuts are one versatile short style for women. These haircuts are usually chin-length, though they can be slightly longer or shorter. A bob is cut at a blunt angle, usually longer in the front and slightly shorter in the back. Once the basic shape of the bob is established, stylist can enhance the cut with bangs, layers or waves. Bobs can also have a center part, or a side part to make them asymmetrical.
