Short Hair? What Does and Doesn't Work!

Short hair exudes a distinct charm, offering a canvas for creativity and self-expression. However, achieving the perfect short hairstyle requires a thoughtful, individualised approach. At Wisteria Avenue, your trusted Abingdon hairdressers, we understand that the key to unlocking short hair’s potential lies in a comprehensive consultation. This invaluable step allows us to consider factors like face shape, style preferences, maintenance level, and more, ensuring a result that complements your unique features and lifestyle seamlessly.

Everything you need to know

One of the fundamental pillars of short hair styling is understanding your face shape. Each face shape possesses its own unique characteristics, and the right short hairstyle can accentuate your best features while harmonising proportions. Whether you have an oval, round, square, heart-shaped, or oblong face, our skilled stylists at Wisteria Avenue possess the expertise to recommend styles that enhance your natural beauty. For example, for a more round face, the objective of a haircut is to give the illusion the face is more oval. Whereas a longer face may benefit from improved volume.

Matching Style to Lifestyle

Short hair offers a spectrum of styles, each with its own level of maintenance. During your consultation, we explore your daily routine, understanding how much time you’re willing to dedicate to styling. Whether you prefer a wash-and-go pixie cut, a layered bob, or an edgy undercut, we ensure your chosen style aligns seamlessly with your lifestyle.

Frequency of Maintenance

Another crucial consideration for short hair is the frequency of haircuts. Short styles often require more frequent maintenance to keep their shape and precision. By discussing how often you’re comfortable visiting the salon, we tailor our recommendations to suit your preferred schedule, ensuring your short hair remains effortlessly chic. In addition thicker hair may appear more ‘fluffy’ and require more styling to tame the style, whereas finer hair may lack volume.

Hair History Matters

Your hair’s history plays a vital role in determining the best short style for you. Whether you’re transitioning from long locks or have a history of specific treatments, understanding your hair’s journey empowers us to choose styles that not only flatter but also work harmoniously with its current state.

Texture and Density Considerations

Short haircuts can be adapted to suit various hair textures and densities. Whether you have fine, straight hair or thick, curly locks, our stylists have the expertise to tailor your short style for maximum impact and manageability.

Personalised Product Recommendations

Achieving and maintaining a fabulous short hairstyle often requires the right products. Based on your hair’s unique needs, we provide personalised recommendations to enhance its texture, volume, and overall health.


Short hair holds endless potential for chic, confident self-expression. At Wisteria Avenue, your trusted Abingdon hairdressers, we’re dedicated to helping you discover the perfect short style that reflects your individuality.
