Discover what the short haircuts that are sweeping this year are. Good news: they favor almost all of us!
Whether you are faithful to short hair or thinking of turning your image upside down, you should know the haircuts that will be a hit this season. These are the cuts that the most daring women are asking for the most in 2022-2023. They are comfortable, versatile, and very flattering.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF SHORT HAIR SUITS YOU?
Surely you have heard many women say that short hair does not favor them. Well, it’s not like that! It doesn’t matter what type of face you have, the density of your hair, or the color of your hair. There is always a suitable short haircut for each type of woman, for example for the most daring. What’s more, the same haircut can (and should) be adapted to the features of each woman so that they are impeccable.
On the other hand, they are very versatile, they feel good, and give much more play than you think. And also forget that short hair is only for summer, they are also very practical in winter. Long hair often gets tangled in the collars of coats and scarves and ends up breaking. With short hair, you don’t have to worry about this.
There are more and more women who decide to cut their ponytails and go for short hair. Hence, new hair options are emerging that coexist with the usual trends. These are the short haircuts that have garnered the most (and best) fame in recent times:
- Bixie. Halfway between the pixie and the bob, this short haircut was a hit in the 90s and now it has resurfaced stronger than ever. The strengths of this cut: it is comfortable, practical, versatile, rejuvenating, and very easy to maintain.
- Pixie. When talking about short hair, the pixie is always one of the great favorites. He is infallible. It adapts to all types of features and hair textures. It is enough to play with the length, the layers, and the bangs -another of the great protagonists of the trends- to achieve a spectacular result.
- Mullet. Characterized by having shorter hair on the top of the head and the sides and leaving the back area longer. This layered cut admits different types of bangs. The appearance of this proposal varies according to the length and arrangement of the layers.
- shullet. It is nothing more than the much shorter Mullet. Hence its name, which combines the English words “short” (short) + Mullet. Follow the same structure with shorter layers on the top and the sides, and longer at the back, but shortens its length by a few centimeters.
- Mixie. It is one of the great novelties of this year. It is a perfect option for women who decide to say goodbye to long hair and give shorter hair a chance but without reaching the garçone style. They bring the elegance and sobriety of the pixie and the rebelliousness of the mullet. A perfect cocktail!
- Nape bob. A slightly shorter cut in the nape area than in the front area generates a perfect inclination to stylize the figure. It manages to visually lengthen the neck and is very feminine and sensual.
- Buzz. It is the most transgressive bet this year. This is the name given to shaved hair. It is a radical cut that, in addition, is worn with extreme colors to enhance its radical and casual essence. The theory says that it favors harmonious and proportioned faces, but the truth is that it brings a lot of strength and personality to the most angular faces.
Take a look through this selection of short haircuts, ordered from least traditional to most extreme. Impossible not to find your style!
WOMEN’S SHORT HAIRCUTS: BIXIE WITH BANGS
A good haircut can have an “antiaging” effect greater than that of a beauty treatment. If you don’t dare to cut your losses, bet on the bixie, a natural evolution of the pixie.

Charlize Theron always creates a trend when she decides to put scissors in her hair. She has been to all kinds of lengths and we loved this blunt bixie. It is nothing more than the evolution of a pixie that, in the absence of a few centimeters, does not lead to a bob. The actress looks blunt on this occasion, probably intending to break the sobriety of an awards ceremony.
WOMEN’S SHORT HAIRCUTS: NAPE BOB
Do you know which is the most flattering cut of this season? The nape bob. This reinterpretation of the bob is sweeping all hairdressers.

This jaw-length cut with tousled air is an infallible bet to take a few years off your back. Its lifting effect is immediate.

It is not the typical hair that you straighten, comb your hair very stiffly or put the ends in… It is rather disheveled.
