Four Popular Short Hairstyle Ideas For WomenAre you looking for a new hairstyle and you would like to go short? The following are some of the trendiest and most popular short hairstyles for women out there today. If you can rock these styles, you will know you're on to something good.

1.) Short and Choppy:

One of the oldest and most popular short hairstyles for women isn't about clean and short cuts. Rather, it is about having texture and being really choppy. A perfect example of this can be seen in Kimberly Stewart, who really rocked the look. When she had the style, she had lots of ragged layers, cut by razors. Make sure you have an excellent quality styling pomade to achieve this look.

2.) The Asymmetrical Look:

Forget the days of being completely balanced on both sides. That is totally yesterday's look! Today, women embrace their duality and the fact that they are a little bit of everything, and this is reflected in their hairstyle. The asymmetric bob, whereby one side is shorter than the other side, is risky and daring, but super cool. If you are a bit worried about being that dramatic, you can also create some asymmetry yourself. Simply give yourself a side parting, so that one side will appear a bit shorter than the other, and tuck the shorter side behind your ear. Yes, this essentially means you are giving yourself a comb over, but you will be nothing like the aging woman that so many of us have sneakily laughed at. Today's comb over is truly one of the most popular short hairstyles for women, not in the least because it is so versatile. You do need a good styling or texturing wax to pull it off.

3.) Go for Medium Instead of Long:

Taking the plunge and cutting your hair off is a big deal. Luckily, you don't have to go super short to be trendy. Medium is the new short, as well as the new long. By having mid-length hair, you get more styling options, more volume, and a whole lot more movement as well. Plus, it is an opportunity for you to edge yourself into going short.

4.) The Casual Updo:

Last but not least, you can have a short hairstyle without having to cut any hair at all. You can have a beautiful, uncomplicated, soft updo instead. The low bun or chignon, for instance, or the half updo, are very popular styles. Those styles are easy to do yourself so that you don't need to go to a stylist. Do make sure that you have some rollers to be able to execute those styles, however. But basically, pinning your hair up in a nice way means that you don't have to cut your hair off, and you can still free your face as you would with a short style.

Clearly, there are lots of different styles out there for you to choose from, whether you want to cut your hair short or not. Experiment and have fun, and you will quickly look your best.
