The pixie cut can also be styled in this manner. This is a more softer, and refined take on the classic style, achieved by parting the hair to one side. If you’re not very tall and brave enough to try this cut, it’ll make styling, maintaining, and caring for your hair much easier.

9. Straight And Long

This cut is great if you don’t like short hair or you have long hair and need to maintain it that way. More importantly, it will help you look even more tall. If you choose this one, make sure your hair is sleek and straight. Adding waves or layers will make it look fuller, which will shorten the illusion of your body’s length.

10. Chest Length Hair

A chest-length cut may be the answer if you’re looking for a fresh style without committing to a whole chop. This length is just right, falling between too long and too short, and it’s adaptable, so it can be used to create a shorter or longer style. Also, since it’s medium length, you may experiment with it in various ways, including wearing it up.
