Whether you're a long-term convert or ready for a drastic change, short hair has never been more versatile. From a blunt cut to a pixie crop or lifting it to lobe-length, lopping it off can feel utterly liberating.
Plus, there's nothing like pruning back layers of hair to help open up your face and make the most of your features (hello there, cheekbones).
Of course, you don't need to go gung-ho. You could dip your toe in with a slightly longer length, like a lob, or the short (but not too-short) collar-bone bob. Feeling daring? The jaw-skimming bob is this season's most requested haircut among Hollywood's elite (just ask Kaia Gerber, Lily James and Naomi Watts), or you could trade in your ends for an iconic pixie cut, like Bella Hadid. How to look both badass and feminine? Zoe Kravit's softly chopped crop is rebelliously low-maintenance but oh-so statement making.
The best way to find your new short hairstyle is to pick a look you'd love to copy or covet yourself.
