Short wedge haircuts are in style as of 2015 and were first popularized by champion figure skater Dorothy Hamill. Celebrities such as Kris Jenner sport the look, inspiring American women to do the same, according to Hairstyles Weekly.
The short wedge haircut is achieved by lifting the hair to a 90-degree angle and then cutting it carefully in sections to get the desired length for each piece, according to Hairfinder. The hairstyle was popularized by the very young, although women tend to cut their hair shorter as they get older. This hairstyle is low-maintenance and suited to most hair types, with the exception of very curly types. The short length of this hairstyle is ideal for the heat of summer, according to Hairfinder.
