Summer calls for a few changes, beauty-wise, but one thing on everyone’s list is probably some form of hair removal—including the hair on your head. If you’re not already getting scissor-happy, a couple months of heat and humidity leveling out in the ’80s and ’90s will turn your otherwise luscious locks into swampy tendrils—like some scarf around your neck that simply won’t quit. Even updos are a form of heat-trapping—at least that’s how they feel on a particularly sweltering day.

They say hair grows quicker in the summer time, so what better time to experiment with a short cut? Consider it your automatic air-conditioner—your shoulders will thank you once they’re no longer flanked by swaths of heavy hair.

Take any of these 50 killer short cuts nicked from the runway and head to your hairstylist. No need to hunt for hair bands for the rest of the summer!

    The fun part of pixies is how your bangs become the star. Style them in a bunch of ways if they're long enough, but perhaps the winning part of a pixie on fine straight hair is the fact that it's totally wash and go!

    A slick side-part with an asymmetrical crop is never not cool. Part '60s, part futuristic, it's more versatile than you'd initially think.

    Middle-parts are having their time in the sun—which actually makes a great way to grow out bangs, if that's your aim, or to cut wispy front pieces in your lob for a bit of flirty dimension.

    Curls cut short and layered look so pretty strategically piled around your face's half-way point (around your eyes/nose level). It pays to go to a hairstylist that specialized in curls since this look is all about the right stacking.

    We are all about this little black bob. Snip back into the ends to give them some movement and texture.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Yes, you can have bangs if you have curly hair. And they look really cool. Just make sure they're layered so they hang the way you want them (again, seeing a hairstylist with loads of curly hair experience is a good idea here).

    Side-swept bangs on an icy-white pixie are a fierce look—not to mention a cool way to rock some roots.

    Consider the pageboy haircut—Edgier than a bob, cute but not cutesy, and cool without looking like you're trying. We're sold.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Red hair looks good in general, but it looks way cool on a textured lob and bangs.

    Brow-length bangs and a jaw-length bob are a classic look you can rock well into the fall.

    We love this deep side-parted crop. You can wear it sleek or throw some texturizing pomade in it for a piecey look.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    For the bold, you can brave the side undercut. For the tame, tuck one side of the asymmetrical bob behind your ear and let the other side fall over your eye for a bit of intrigue.

    Take a note from the boys with this cool buzzed cut. Leave the top long to flip it whichever way you want—it looks great falling into your eyes even if that's annoying.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    For those who can't quite commit to bangs (especially in the summer when they're added curtains to your face), try wispy ones before taking the plunge into a full-on fringe. It adds a romantic look to this lob, don't you think?

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Keep everything short but don't sacrifice texture with this ultra cool effortless pixie. You can style it with flexible hold hairspray or just the teensiest bit of texturizing paste.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    An edgy pixie cut requires one thing: confidence. The rest is up to your hairstylist or colorist. Personally, we think this choppy pixie would look great in a multitude of colors. Blonde isn't a bad place to start though.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    If you're just looking to lighten up some length for the summer, a lob is best. Depending on how you style it, it can be prim, edgy, grungy (like here!), or minimal. Either way, it'll keep you cool while looking cool.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Retro hairstyles love a good short length, especially when you're sculpting curls like these. Wear them glam or carefree and messy-looking, we can't argue with a cool cut that's also versatile.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    The half-bangs—long enough to wisp in your eyes and tuck behind your ears, but short enough to open up your face. This is a great cut to lose some length for the summer without losing styling options or something aspiration to grow into.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    We love short cuts for their ability to style this easily—just slick back a wet crop with water and a bit of gel—add a few stripes of color if you're feeling fancy too! Definitely a chic pool-side look.

    Thick and straight or slightly wavy hair looks real cute with flippy ends like on this lob. Plus, you have plenty of braiding and styling options with this one-length cut.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Salt spray-lovers, this one's for you. A textured bob scrunched up with plenty of bedhead is the cool-girl look of the summer.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Part surfer girl, and part Joan Jett, we love a good texture shag. Even on straight hair it has tons of movement and dimension.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    A straight platinum lob slicked with blunt ends is pretty much flattering on everyone, and you don't have to worry about it sticking to your sweaty neck in the summer. Can't go wrong with this style.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    A pixie left long turns into this adorable textured crop. Consider tailoring the shape of it to your face shape so it grows in in a flattering way.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Adding colorful streaks to your platinum bob—always a fun way to experiment during summer. Leave it haphazardly textured for a fun look that steers clear of the chunky highlighting trend from the '90s.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Consider this the deconstructed bowl cut—plenty of texture and movement with blunt ends that mimic a punk take on the 'do.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    A geometric bob with face-framing angles that curl upwards is very flapper-chic. It's also not a bad way to keep cool and glam during the summer.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    A shag can be sexy as much as it is punky—throw a disco spin on it with flipped-out layers and long bangs.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Can't quite top-knot your hair but don't want it in your face? Try the face-framing milkmaid braids. French braid starting from the front to back, and just tie them together where they meet in the back. If your hair's too short to tie them back, pin them together, wrapping around each other. Your perfect summer do—right here.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Retro baby bangs are a summer staple for wearing fringe in the heat. Add them on a flirty bob for an adorable do.

  • 50 of the Hottest Summer Hairstyles For Short Hair

    Voluminous pixie cuts are such a great look for most face-shapes since it adds an element of height. Also, they look great riding shotgun in a convertible, just sayin'.
