Deciding to go for one of the current short layered haircuts is a brave move – you can’t just hide your hair in a messy bun if you don’t like it! That’s why it’s important to be clear on how you want it to look.

Lucky for you, we have compiled an extensive list of short layered hairstyles that are very trendy right now to inspire you for your next cut!

Why to go for layers? Layering is an effortless way to shape and add fullness to fine thin hair, but it can also remove bulk from the ends, distribute and reduce volume in thick wavy hair.

Plus, they add a youthful vibe to the look – and who could say no to looking younger?!

1. Layered Pixie with Bangs. No list of short layered haircuts would be complete without a layered pixie! The long, side swept bangs are ideal for adding dimension – and are perfect for round faces.
