If you’ve always had long hair, this might be the sign for you to finally give up your waist-length tresses. Remember, your hair will grow back and life’s too short (pun intended) to not try a chin-grazing ‘do that can totally transform your look.  

One of the factors that makes most girls hesitant to try a shorter hairstyle is they feel like it reveals more of their face and body. Much like peeling off a comforting veil that used to cover certain features you wanted to be kept hidden. But this is the exact reason why some women opt to add a fringe to their short hair!

The right fringe can accentuate your face shape better, brighten up your look, and add character. But if you think getting bangs means sporting a full blunt fringe, let us broaden your vocabulary of styles. From curtain bangs to the trendy Korean-style snip, here are some of the most flattering cuts to consider if you’re ready to go for a short face-framing hairstyle.
