It’s finally summer, which means everyone is looking for ways to keep cool. One great way to cool off and change things up is to get a short haircut. But, it can be nerve-wracking to chop all that hair off if you’ve never gone short before. So, here are some tips and ideas to get you started!

Anyone can rock a short cut, the key is figuring out which style will make you feel the most YOU. Are you looking for something more feminine? Maybe opt for a cute, softly styled pixie or a classic bob. Are you looking for some edge? Think about asymmetry and blunt cuts. Want to look casual or punk rock? Then layers and shag are the way to go.

If you’re not sure what your preference is, you can download an app that lets you “try on” different hairstyles. Just upload a photo of your face, and select different haircuts to try. This is very helpful for figuring out what style will best suit your face shape and your personality.

Finally, be sure to come into the salon with pictures of what you want, and don’t be afraid to be specific. It’s also a good idea to ask your stylist for suggestions if you don’t have a clear picture of how the cut might look. Talk out the process with your stylist before you begin, and determine together what you want the end result to look like. That way there will be no surprises along the way—although surprises are often part of the fun when it comes to short hair!
