Long hair isn't everyone's dream, believe it or not. Some women are more than satisfied sporting a fierce short 'do, especially when it flatters them so well, as these styles demonstrate. When choosing to go short, you'll be much happier with your overall look if you select a cut that complements your face shape, and works with your hair's texture and thickness. Consider this a good time to consult with a qualified professional who's well-versed in creating great cuts.

Nia Long's look takes advantage of longer bang lengths, which can be brushed forward or back.
