1. Pixie Cut

This weekend after watching Shamitabh movie, I could now confidently suggest you to go for a pixie cut. That’s because the actress Akshara Hassan in the movie flaunts a pixie, which effortlessly suits her face type, whilst making her look taller as well. Even in PK, Anushka had flaunted this same hairstyle, even if her height didn’t demand one. Still, it indicates how pixie is very much in trend these days. That being said, you can definitely give this a try. This haircut would not only give you an image makeover, but also keep you with the latest trend.

Back in Hollywood, there are so many actresses, right from the fashion icon Victoria Beckham and Miley Cyrus to Carey Mulligan and Emma Watson, who have flaunted pixie cut thereby making this style quite a rage.

Just drop your bangs at the front side and sweep the rest across your forehead. You can also go for a punk style by flaunting spikes as per your likeness.

Celeb hair stylists suggest that petite women should never go beyond their shoulder while growing hair. The medium length should be the maximum length for maintaining your hairstyle. This way they’ll definitely look taller than their original height.


Also make sure you do not wear too much of hair accessories. Also try avoid wearing barrettes, as such accessories can make you look younger and smaller. Instead, you should pick a style that is not too curly or permed. Do not also go for spiral or oversized curls as they can overwhelm your small frame. Complete your look with a flattering makeup and you’re done!

3. Chin length

Chin length is considered one of the classic hairstyles, that have been complementing celebrities since time immemorial. This bob style softly curls under the chin area and is thus versatile enough to suit all face types.

If you have a square chin then go for layering bangs that help slim large chin down. And if you have a long face then go for bob with side part. Follow the ‘less is more’ mantra when it comes to styling your hair.
