20 Beautiful Short Hairstyles for Women

Why are short hairstyles for women trendy and chic?

Long, thick and flowing hair is regarded as a sign of youth and virility for men and women.  The rule of thumb has been that long hair is a sign of beauty and femininity. People also tend to associate short hairstyles with tomboys.  As such, many women are hesitant to try out the short hairstyle. However, the truth is that a short hairstyle can be equally, if not more beautiful, than long hair and even feminine.

Short Hairstyle Ideas

There are various reasons to sport short haircuts. While it could be driven by the need to experiment for many, it could also be due to hair issues like hair fall or easier treatment of the scalp. The weather can also play a part. A long and thick hair may be challenging to maintain in summers, and it takes longer to groom long hair.

The key is in taking your time before you finally get a short haircut and seek advice from professional hairstylists first.
