Short Hair Trends

Turn Up The Heat With The Hottest Short Hair Trends at McGills Hairdressing in Edinburgh

It's that time of the year when long, thick hair can feel too heavy and we feel the urge to trade our longer locks for a chic shorter style.

If this sounds like you, or if you simply feel you're stuck in a hairstyle rut and want to make a radical change, we've got good news! There are a wide range of cool shorter hairstyles to choose from, meaning that you won't have to sacrifice style for comfort in the heat.

Chic "French Pixie" Cuts

For a chic hairstyle with a certain "je ne sais quoi", choose a French inspired pixie cut. This sophisticated version of the classic pixie crop has the classic short back and sides, but the hair is left longer on the top.

Channel the fashionable nonchalance that French women are famous for, with tousled layers and this trendy haircut. You will be pleased to hear that you can put away your styling tools for this hairstyle: it works best with a little mousse and styled with your fingers.

The "Heartthrob Bob"

'90s nostalgia has been the fashion for a while now, and it has made its way into women's hair trends with the arrival of the popular Heartthrob Bob, a feminine twist on the styles of Leonardo Dicaprio and Johnny Depp. This choppy layered bob is cut closely at the nape of the neck with cheekbone length sections towards the front. This trendy hair style is designed to fall naturally around the face in a relaxed, lived-in style. 

This look works well with all hair types and textures and having your hair off your neck will help to keep you looking and feeling cooler this summer. Need another reason to take the plunge? With the heartthrob bob, you can just wash and go!

Collarbone Grazing Lobs

If you don't want to go too short this summer, then a collarbone grazing lob may be the style for you. This face-flattering length is great for warm summer days as it allows you to style it in multiple ways and is long enough to tie up.

If you feel like you're stuck in a hairstyle rut, losing just a few inches off your hair can offer a major style shake up. The "lob" works with all hair textures, the length helps maintain volume and thickness in fine hair, and is long enough that curly hair won't puff out as it could with a shorter length. 

The "Princess Diana" Bob

During her lifetime Princess Diana was a style icon, and her look still has a huge impact on the fashions of today. The Modern Diana Bob is everywhere on social media this summer as people continue take inspiration from her hairstyle, pair with Diana inspired oversized jumpers with cycling shorts or co-ordinating suits.

The Modern Diana Bob references the princess' famous hairstyle with layers, side parting and lots of volume. It's a versatile, low maintenance look which is easy to style, you simply add some products to enhance the volume for a fashionable messy look. Alternatively, you could choose to blow dry it smooth, or wear it slicked back for an edgy evening look.
