18 Best Short Hairstyles For Every Texture And Color

It’s long been said that a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life. In some cases, however, a woman who cuts her hair around summertime can’t be bothered with hair on her neck. Whatever the reason may be, one thing is for sure: short hairstyles are a power move, and while they may be a bit more high-maintenance, they’re sure to make a statement — every time.

That’s why, celebrities are eternally unafraid to get friendly with the scissors. They’re always announcing that they’ve decided to cut it all off and in many cases, decide to add some festive and bold color as well. A quick scroll of Instagram is proof of that, often marked by exciting, new, and fresh hair moments that prove that in many cases, less is more.

So if you’ve been thinking about opting for the chop, but are still on the fence, these are 18 looks that may just make your mind for you.
