Hair Romance - Short haircut inspiration from Milan Fashion Week

I spotted this model at the Cristiano Burani show at Milan Fashion Week and I love her haircut.

It’s quite short at the back, almost boyish, but the longer front layers make this a versatile short haircut. You can wear it down, spiked up or parted to the side.

This style is best suited to straight to wavy hair. It will work well in fine to medium thickness hair.

Pair it with a bold lip, but I say that for almost every style 😉

Would you wear your hair this short? Have you ever tried this haircut?

    I’m thinking about going short. I’ll be 50 in February and the long hair sometimes feels heavy and frumpy. I hesitate to cut it because you have this great blog – which has really helped, and it takes so long to grow out and can be so awkward in the prpocess. And then you show that cute short haircut. . .

      haha sorry Elaine! I love short hair and keep thinking about the chop too but I’m staying long for now. I don’t think age is a factor, as long as your hair is on good condition you can wear it any length you like x

    This is very similar to what I have now. I have a wave to the front & sides, and apparently strong curl in the back so we had to do short in the back like these photos. I love it, it’s a lot of fun. Very versatile. This is a good starting point to anyone who’s ever wanted a pixie–more length on top.

    Never went this short before–had a messed up “pixie”(if you can call it that) 16 years ago–think a shortened version of Johnny Depp in the Chocolate Factory movie. :S

    So, I jumped at the chance get it short by more of a professional. It’s been a month, and I have not regretted it at all.
