Just because you have short hair doesn't mean there isn't much you can do with your hair. There are many different styles which you can get your hair cut into. However, it is important to describe the style you desire properly to your stylist. Or you can carry a picture of that short haircut with you, when going to the salon.
Short Haircuts for Women
For this style, the stylist will cut hair on the sides into very short crops and keep the middle hair longer. Then the top hair will be styled with an extra hold gel, frontwards and upwards with lot of bangs falling on your forehead. If you wish to try spiky short haircuts for women, then instead of styling the Mohawk frontwards, style it into small spikes.
Short Haircuts for Men
So, pick a haircut which you think will suit your face and one you will be able to maintain, and go to the stylist to get the haircut. To maintain the haircut, visit the stylist every 4 - 6 weeks.
