Short Haircuts for Women
Bob Haircut
Bob haircuts are incredibly stylish, low-maintenance haircuts that never go out of fashion. Right from the 1920s, when women began to have their hair styled in a classic bob up to the present, bob hairdos has topped the list of popular fashionable hairdos due to the way this hairstyle has been modified to suit varied face shapes.

A very short crop bob, choppy bob, graduated bob, asymmetrical bob and inverted bob are some of the variations of short bob haircuts. Those who have thin hair can don a simple bob with some angled cuts for a fuller look. One can also give flair to a short bob with the help of soft curls or flipped ends.
A Short Bob

A jaw-length graduated bob is probably the best short haircut for oval faces. Most women also look great in chin-length blunt bob along with Cleopatra bangs. A short wedge bob is another haircut wherein the hair at the back is cut starting from the back hairline and each layer is snipped a little longer than the layer underneath.

The wedge cutting technique that gives a stacked or a tapering look at the back can be combined with Cleopatra bangs or side-swept bangs at the front.
Variations in Bob

Some women can also pull off the inverted bob with bangs that are cut across the forehead. Angled bob or a choppy bob are other options that are available to women who are not in the favor of having their hair styled in a super short hairdo.

If the length of the hair is anywhere between your chin and your shoulder, you can go for a side-parted wavy version of bob with long side sweeping bangs.
A Pixie Cut

A super short pixie can work wonders for women who have fine features. It will draw attention to your features and accentuate them. Women with a round face or a heart-shaped face can also go for a short pixie cut, with a bit of height.

Those who have a square-shaped face should make sure that the hair is textured to provide softer edges. This will take the focus away from the jaw line. Layering at the sides can make the pixie cut a great face-framing haircut.
Pixie Styles

If you already are a pixie-gal, then you need a variation in it. The hair at the front can be styled into choppy bangs in order to complement the look. You can also style your tresses in a spiky hairdo. A gamine crop that is kept short at the neckline and the bang area, but longer at the crown, can look great too.

You could have the hair ruffled or spiked at the crown using a hair gel. Those who are not afraid to cut their tresses very short, can also try the buzz cut or short crop cut.
Shoulder-length Haircuts
Shoulder Length Haircut
If you are not too keen on getting your hair styled in a super short haircut, you can always sport an ultra chic shoulder-grazing bob haircut. A great idea would be to cut your hair in a bob that is slightly longer, with the hair at the front falling below the chin.

You could also go for an inverted bob with side-swept bangs. An asymmetrical bob is another version of bob, where hair on one side is kept longer than the other. Adding layers and incorporating bangs can also do the trick.
Short Haircuts for Men
Faded Haircut

Men who want to keep it real short, can sport faded haircut. In a tapered fade haircut, hair at the crown area is cut very short, and hair at the sides and back is cut even shorter.

In recent months, faded haircut with hair design is trending. From Ronaldo to Drake, from Neymar to Zayn Malik everyone is taken with this hairstyle.

An undercut with a side part and a side-sweeping forelock that is brushed upwards from the forehead may work wonders for some men. While hair is kept shorter at the sides and the back, the forelock can give volume.

You can have many variations in undercut like tapered undercut and sleek back undercut. Men and their love for beard is not something new, right? Undercut haircut always looks stylish and classy with the beard.
While making a decision regarding the short haircut you would style your tresses in, make sure that you look for a hairdo that suits your face shape as well your hair texture. So, out of the haircuts given above, select the one that accentuates your facial features and hides your facial flaws, if any.
