Short Hair Ideas

Nothing says new hair, new me quite like a short haircut.   Popular short cuts include elfin and pixie cuts, shattered bobs, and short, undercut styles.  With the right products, you can style your short hair to suit every occasion, whether you choose to look cute and whimsical or sleek and chic!  All of the products we use at Sanctum are vegan, sustainable, and cruelty-free, which means that whatever we recommend to make your hair healthier will help make the planet healthier, too.  Cutting short hair is best left to the professionals, and regular appointments at our salon will ensure that your hair always looks fantastic.  

Bobs, Lobs & Layers

Although bobs and lobs are technically short hairstyles, they're so popular that they deserve an entire section in themselves!  The tousled lob (or long bob) is the epitome of #hairgoals, and for good reason - it can look great on anyone!  Lobs can be a great canvas for interesting colours such pastel shades, and they look great with highlights, baybylights and balayage colour techniques which give them more depth.  For more information about the colour services we offer here at Sanctum, take a look at our hair colour page.

Bobs are making a huge comeback right now, with the cute and effortlessly cool French girl bob being hailed by Elle, Glamour, and Vogue magazines as "the only haircut to get post-lockdown".  Blunt bobs tend to look gorgeous on people with fine hair, but if your hair is thicker it may be wise to add some layers to your lob or bob - they're a great way to add texture and interest to these popular styles and they'll help you avoid the dreaded mushroom hair effect!

Hairstyles With Fringes

Fringes and bangs are highly popular at the moment, with even Ariana Grande adding a fringe to her iconic ponytail hairstyle.  Fringes are surprisingly versatile and can have very different effects depending on the length you go for and the hairstyle you choose to pair it with.   On one end of the spectrum, a long fringe paired with long hair can create a seventies-chic look, and on the other, a micro-fringe with shorter hair is great if your style is more modern and edgy.  Anyone can pull off a fringe, but the trick is to style it so that it suits your face shape.  For example, a square-shaped face will suit a brow-grazing fringewhereas a round face shapes tend to suit side-swept bangs

Long Hairstyles

Long hairstyles are truly timeless and offer a wide range of styling options which can look beautiful at special occasions such as weddings and prom.  Although long hair looks low-maintenance, it is important to visit the salon often to keep those locks looking luscious!  We'll remove split ends and add subtle layers so that your hair stays healthy and doesn't weigh you down.
