If you check out Instagram and Pinterest, you will notice one major thing. Hair is being liberated everywhere. That’s right! Girls and women all around are ditching long locks, curls, frizz, buns, chignons, and other complicated hairdos that take up a lot of time to style and maintain in favor of a sensationally liberating hairstyle. The short and sleek one. Therefore, we have put a together a list of 50 minimalist short haircuts for straight hair that can help you join the movement as well.
1. The Blunt Blonde Bob
We’ll start off with the biggest trend of the season. It’s a blunt bob with choppy ends and a straight finish to it that has been dyed in a platinum blonde, the most sought-after color this year.
2. The A-Line Bob
Another type of bob you can try is the A-line one. This haircut is shoulder-length and it’s a fabulous ombre that starts off as a chocolate brown and ends as a noisette blonde. We love the striking red lip as well.
3. Cute Short Haircuts for Straight Hair
If you’re looking to keep your hair out of your face on a hot day, while you work or while you’re at the gym, try these cute braids. Part your hair down the middle like you used to do when you were a little girl and pair them with a set of gold earrings.
4. Short Haircuts for Straight Hair with Bangs
A blunt haircut works best with a blunt fringe. But here’s a tip. No matter how many YouTube tutorials you watch, don’t try to give yourself bangs at home. Let your experienced stylist do the job for you.
5. The Straight Hair Pixie Cut
This is just about as minimalist as you can get when it comes to straight hair. It’s a boyish pixie cut with a superb set of asymmetrical bangs. They work wonders if your forehead is slightly bigger than it ought to be.
6. The Pixie Cut with Straight Bangs
Form one pixie cut to another. This haircut is one of the coolest we’ve ever seen. It’s a platinum blonde, messy and straight with a set of bangs that stretch just the right length. That means they hit the spot between the eyelids and the eyebrows.
7. Rose Gold Short Haircuts for Straight Hair
If you didn’t dye your hair rose gold blonde at least once in the past couple of years than are you really a fashionista? Rose gold blonde has been the ‘it’ color, but it is now taking a place on the back burner, leaving room for copper and brass.
8. Simple Short Haircuts for Straight Hair
If you love your natural hair color, then you can showcase it with a stunning tan. Don’t forget the bronzer and highlighter because you will need to give your tanned complexion that special glow we all know and love.

12. Short Haircuts with a Side Part
Styling a sleek and short bob is as easy as parting your hair on one side and voila! The messy French girl look is yours for the taking. You don’t even need a comb. Use your fingers and dab some hair product on it.

When you have Olivia Wilde’s facial bone structure, there’s no need to hide it away under a curtain of hair. Therefore, parting it one side, tucking it behind her ears, and securing it in place with lots of hair gel was a genius move. Olivia is also sporting the latest in glitter makeup.
