We’re officially declaring 2019 as the year of short hair. While long hair once dominated the beauty world, this year has been all about short chops and hairstyles that fall above your shoulders. If you’ve ever considered snipping your dark brown hair into a stylish bob, there’s no better time than right now to give it a go.

Looking for a few very short hairstyles to try this year? Keep scrolling for 13 of our favorite looks.

Bowl Cut Pixie

You might get flashbacks to elementary school days when you think of bowl cuts, but this modernized look is nothing like back in the day. The refreshed version of the hairstyle is one of the trendiest looks of 2019.

Deep Side Parted Bob

While deep side parts are loved for adding instant volume, we adore the look paired with a sleek pixie. Since frizz and flyaways are a no-go for any sleek hairstyle, an anti-frizz serum is an absolute must. We recommend the Biolage Smoothproof Hair Serum. The product infuses hair with weightless smoothness, leaving it frizz-free and easy to control while keeping it natural to the touch.

Statement-Making Bob

Looking to take your bob hairstyle to the next level? If you’re interested in testing out a look that really packs a punch, ask your colorist for a statement hue. A gorgeous haircut combined with a bold hair color is just what you need to head into a new year!

Curly Pixie

If you have curly hair, you’re going to want a short hairstyle that still allows you to show off your natural texture. Opt for a pixie with just enough length to let your curls shine!

Work a styling product like the Mizani Lived-In Texture Creation Cream through your strands to create and support texture, body, and dimension.

Modern Mullet

The return of the mullet has been one of the biggest beauty trends of 2019. Not ready for a complete return to ‘80s hair? With trendy colors and layers that fall a bit longer than a traditional mullet, your stylist can customize your look to create a more modern appearance.


Undercuts allow you to play around with an edgier look without losing all of your length. Ask your stylist for an undercut just above the nape of your neck while leaving the hair on top of your head a bit longer.

Shaved And Colorful

When it comes to hair, we always say: go bold or go home. If you’ve already braved a buzz cut, why not give a daring hair color a try? We can’t take our eyes off of this bold red hue.

Baby Bangs

Baby bangs were a hit in the ‘90s—and the throwback look is back and better than ever. Ready to commit to bangs? Ask your stylist for a mini fringe look to compliment your blunt cut.

Short And Spiky

Short hair and texture go together like bread and butter. If you’re looking to keep your hair out of your face or simply want to give your short chop a bit of edge, try styling a spiky pixie with tons of texture.

To keep your spiky ‘do in place all day long, apply dime size amount of the Redken Hardwear 16 Super-Strong Sculpting Hair Gel. This super strong hold hair gel gives a style the power to stay put with lasting control and serious shine.

Short Afro

Not totally ready for a big chop? You don’t need to part of all of your length. Instead, leave enough hair on top to be able to style a mini afro.

Glass Hair

Glass hair has been one of the biggest beauty trends of the year. Don’t be surprised if the sleek hairstyle is still making waves on the internet in 2019!

Delicate Accent Braid

Braided hairstyles often seem impossible to create with short hair, but there are plenty of plaited options that work perfectly for shorter strands. If you’re looking for a simple look to give your braiding skills a try, opt for an accent side braid.

Side Swept Bangs

If full-on fringe isn’t for you, consider trying side-swept bangs. Side bangs can instantly soften your features, give your ‘do a more feminine look, and are much easier to style and maintain than full bangs.
