We're living in a weird time, and a lot of us are so happy to be able to go to our hairstylists again, but that doesn't mean everything feels normal.

It might feel good to embrace the weird and try something totally new with your hair. I gave myself one of these trendy cuts (big risk—I know!), and it turns out that I now get compliments on it everywhere I go. Even when I have my mask on at the grocery store!

Make sure you talk with your stylist about how much maintenance would be involved and the easiest ways to style your hair each day. I love my new cut because it works with the wavy, messy-on-purpose look, so I don't always have to style it with heat if I don't feel like it.

Here are the looks that might inspire you!

French Bob

"The French bob is a type of bob that’s cut short near the jawline and paired with bangs at the eyebrow line. This bob cut became popular in France around the 1890s and has evolved over the centuries. Today, the French girl bob is known for its blunt cut, heavy texture, and beach wavy hair.

The French-girl haircut almost always suits anyone, depending on your face shape and structure! With its signature ends that slightly curve in towards the chin, it’s a great hairstyle to frame long and heart-shaped faces."

Pixie Cut

"If you've been considering a pixie cut—consider this your ultimate source of inspiration. From classic icons to modern muses, these are the 60-plus celebrities who prove the versatility of the cool cut. Just be aware: After cutting your hair into a pixie, you might find your sense of style totally changed. Shorter hair calls for statement earrings, bold makeup choices, and more daring fashion choices.

Short + Curly

"Having seen a more loving embrace in the mid-2000s with the natural hair movement, natural curls are here to stay, and we couldn’t be happier. But that doesn’t mean that curly hair doesn’t take a bit of work. No matter how well-acquainted you are with your natural curls, any curly girl can tell you that curls have a mind of their own. But, armed with an arsenal of leave-in conditioner, hair oil, and an excellent collection of trendy padded headbands and chic clips, you’ll find that finding low-maintenance short curly hairstyles is even easier than you might think."
