For short hairstyles, "à la garçonne" crops are leading the trends--think Mia Farrow's short cut in Rosemary's Baby . The super-short cap cuts silhouette the head, putting facial features into the spotlight. A haircut this short will suit small, symmetrical features as the face will become the main focus.
Short haircuts can be also suited to diminish features you don't like or enhance ones you do. Debating whether to chop off your precious locks can be daunting and to ease the transition find hairstyle pictures you like and discuss with your stylist if they can work with you, your hair type and face shape.
For a truly versatile short hairstyle, ask for longer layers on top or get layered, wispy bangs that you can direct forward, slick back or poof up for styling variety. A short haircut with longer top layers can be adapted to suit all face shapes and hair textures. You can wear it sleek or tousled , ruffled up with texturizer for daytime, tucked back or spiked up for a chic nighttime look.
