The Best Salon Near Me For Short Hairstyles


Welwyn Garden City




French-Inspired Pixie Cuts

You cannot go wrong with a pixie cut and we are absolutely loving this French-inspired crop as worn by actress Morena Baccarin.  She's opted for the traditional short back and sides but has left the hair longer on top so it can be worn tousled and messy.  This hairstyle is most certainly chic and with a certain 'je ne sais quoi'! 

The Heartthrob Bob

We're heading back to the 1990s for the Heartthrob Bob which is a cool mixture of short hair at the nape of the neck with a cheekbone skimming bob around the sides.   Think Cameron Diaz in the 1998 comedy There’s Something About Mary and you'll have this hairstyle spot on. 

The Modern Diana Haircut

There are few people more iconic than the late Princess Diana and this hairstyle pays homage to her fabulous sense of style.  This versatile, low maintenance hairstyle has lots of long layers and volume.  It looks best when worn with a side parting and - even better - it can be worn messy, slicked back or with a smooth blow dry.

Short Hairstyles With Quiffs

Out with the old and in with the new!  Comedian and author Dawn French has said goodbye to her glossy black bob and hello to this splendid short quiffed hairstyle.  We love the cut, the styling and the colour which just goes to show how the right hairstyle can really transform how you look and feel.
