Cute Short Hairstyles for Big Women

Learn how to do cute short hairstyles for big women from professional stylist Joy La Rosa in this Howcast short hair tutorial.


So I just wanted to talk a little bit about some really cute hairstyles for plus sized women. I get asked this question a lot and a lot of women are actually intimidated to cut their hair short because they are a little bit plus sized. I think that by cutting your hair short you can really play up great features that you have.

Also be considerate of if you are a little heavyset and you have all this long thick hair, It's overwhelming you. So we feel sometimes comforted by the fact that we have hair and we use it as a cover. But if it's adding to the shape instead of refining it I think that it's a negative. So consider cutting your hair a little bit shorter.

Some things to consider would be if you have a really great feature, if you have beautiful eyes, or sharp cheekbones or a beautiful jaw line. I would recommend cutting a hair style that would accentuate something that was great about yourself.

Also if you have a long neck or a short neck those are things to consider with the length of your hair. I really great trick is if you a little bit more weight in your face would be to go a little bit higher with the hair. So a short cut that's a little tighter on the sides and actually a little bit fuller on the top will actually help to elongate your shape. So there are some really cute hairstyles to do if you are a plus sized woman.
