So you’re done with long hair and ready to get the chop, but you’re not sure where to go from here? Some of the easiest and most flattering hairstyles all fall under the short straight hair with bangs category, and if you want one, your options are limitless.
Fade, pixie, or bob; long side bangs, straight-across fringe or curtain bangs—choose a combination of cut and bangs to create your ideal hairstyle. Here’s a varied selection to help you pick your perfect combo.
1. Short Hair With Bangs For Fine Hair
Short, sweet and pretty. This short-bob-slash-long-pixie can be worn tucked behind the ear when you want a neat look or loose when you’re feeling more casual. Oh, and the see-through bangs make it a million times cuter.
2. Chin-Length Bob With Short Bangs
Ear length bob with bangs is a staple cool-girl haircut. It’s a stylish, carefree look that exudes confidence and a no-nonsense attitude.
3. Choppy Short Hair Bangs
If you like messy and casual hairstyles that are still flattering and pretty, a short cut with choppy thick bangs and plenty of feathering will get you just that.
4. Short Fringe Haircut
A cropped pixie is fresh and chic, bringing your face into the focus. Don’t underestimate the micro bangs: they do more than look cute even thought they’re so short by making the haircut suit the face better.
5. Layered Short Straight Hair With Bangs
Wispy side bangs are a popular companion to a pixie cut because they frame the face. Also, they’re the ideal style of bangs for heart-shaped faces, taking the attention away from the forehead and creating balance.
6. Bob Haircut With Side Bangs
Dramatic side-flipped long bangs add to the volume on top, which is what we all want. Higher hair makes the face look more delicate, so if you want to soften your features, get your parting deep and your bangs high.
7. Short Hair With Side Bangs
A short rounded bob with longer strands in the front can be styled in a girl-next-door look, but it’s much more versatile than that: slick it back for an androgynous look or wear it loose and casual.
8. Short Haircut With Bangs
This clean and sharp look is a modern take on the classic 90’s cut. It’s short but with just enough length to play with—try adding some hair accessories, for example.
9. Shaggy Short Haircut With Bangs
Mullets are edgy and cool, but it might take courage to go for this particular chop. Make it easier by choosing the style of bangs that specifically fits your face.
10. Short Layered Hair With Bangs
Bangs can be a flattering accessory for your haircut, or the central point, like this bright red textured fringe that takes the hairstyle from cute to outstanding.
11. Short Straight Hair With Bangs And Layers
Heavily thinned out bottom takes care of all the bulk and the layers boost the volume. The long bangs are a bonus that makes the styling of this haircut easier because it already looks good around the face.
12. Sleek Bob With Short Fringe
The polished rounded bob can work with all types of bangs, but its natural match is a short straight-across fringe. A classic look.
13. Short Hair With Bangs And Layers
Blunt-cut ends and texturizing layers result in cool, disheveled style that looks effortless. (You’ll have to style it a bit to look good, however.)
14. Choppy Short Straight Hair With Bangs
A longish pixie has a fuzzy and soft vibe when worn as-is, but add some product to get it sleek, and you’ll have a chic style appropriate for any occasion.
15. Shaggy Short Hairstyle With Bangs
If you’re growing out a pixie or just trying something new, short, layered and flippy is a cute style that takes moments to style. And if you already know how you like your bangs, they can stay as they are between haircuts.
16. Short Straight Choppy Bob
This nape-revealing short cut has the shape of a bob, but it’s shorter than you might be used to—it’s super modern and eye-catching.
17. Blunt Short Straight Hair With Bangs
Super blunt ends might look artificial, but this bob certainly makes a statement. It looks best with bangs that are cut just as bluntly.

If you want easy yet put-together, a short rounded bob might be of interest. It works best with fine to medium hair and looks polished when you take some time to blow dry it.
19. Choppy Short Hairstyle With Bangs
The wispy ends flipped outwards and the long straight-across bangs are an unusual combination, but they balance each other and look super pretty.

Length around ear-level with bangs of the same length? Sounds a lot like a bowl cut, but this is a modern, edgy version with texture and a soft lavender color.
21. Edgy Short Straight Hair With Bangs
If you want an easy buzz cut but you also want some length, undercuts and fades are it: you only have to style half the head, and you get all the impact.
22. Sleek Short Bob With Bangs
Pairing a super-short rounded bob with blunt bangs balances it while also creating an interesting visual. This combo also gives an illusion of a higher forehead and highlights the jawline, which makes it a good choice for diamond-shaped faces.
23. Chin-Length French Bob
A little bit of feathering makes blunt bangs touchable and soft—the perfect pairing for a short French bob.
24. Short Layered Pixie For Fine Hair
You don’t have to wear your hair the same way all the time even if it’s super short: there’s plenty you can do with it if you want. Blow dry your fringe upward to transform the look of a pixie from cute to cool.
25. Layered Short Hair With Long Bangs
Avoid a too-rounded look with some layers on top—they create volume, interest and make your style playful.

34. Short Hairstyle For Thin Fine Hair
Choppy layered cuts look fit hair that’s both fine and thin by giving it volume, body and movement.
