If you're dying for a change in 2022, why not finally cut your hair short? Hey, since we're officially a few months into the new year, you might as well start fresh with a short hairstyle—one that'll be conveniently off your neck for the breezy summer days to come. And you don't have to go short-short if you don't want to. Start by shedding off a few inches with a lob, then take it from there.

When it comes to short hair, there are options for every texture. If you're not someone who likes to spend a lot of time on their hair, there are shake-it-and-go cuts just for you. (Maybe this is your chance to air dry and run out the door, living your life unencumbered by the styling you used to do with long strands!) We've got everything on this list, from fashion-forward pixie cuts to cute lobs to natural short styles to short hairstyle meant to complement round faces. And honestly, even the more high-maintenance short hairstyles on this list are low-effort compared to long styles. (My favorite: Short blonde hair you can't look away from.) You're going to want to save these to your mood board.
