                                    Any collection of the best short cuts would be incomplete without a piecey cut (for the texture, ya know). The gold-ish and silvery highlights further emphasize the piecey texture of the cut, all while adding some enviable depth.

                                            Curls demand a lot of layers for maximum movement–and this collarbone-grazing cut says ‘I got this!’

                                                  THAT angle though! We love a haircut that makes our thick locks feel a whole lot lighter and a lot less one-dimensional (boooring).

                                                        Prepare for lift-off! Reduce excess weight from your medium bob–and gain instant volume–by adding an angle toward the front.

                                                          Shorter in the back and gradually increasing in length toward the front, this cut is ideal for thick-haired beauties who are sick and tired of constantly dealing with frizzy tresses. Eek!

                                                              Needless to say, a good chunk of the best short haircuts today have bangs. In this case, the fringe echoes the texture released throughout the mane and enhanced using a curl cream.

Ease into things with this delightful cut—short enough to remain low-maintenance, yet long enough to flow into side bangs while landing alluring movement.

                                                                short pixie cut with highlights

                                                                  A matching, softer shade of violet money highlights could be all your dark brown hair needs to give it the luminosity and classy feel you desire.

                                                                  money piece bob

                                                                    blonde straight bob

Rock this ageless style if you have a pixie with longer hair on top, or when it’s just beginning to grow out. It’s undoubtedly one of the best ways to add the illusion of a longer, more oval face (hello there, round face beauties).
