Deciding what hair style to ask for at a salon can be overwhelming, particularly when you're looking for a short cut, which poses some challenges. Shorter styles and blonde hair show mistakes more obviously than longer cuts, and a cropped coiffure can be intimidating if you've never had short hair before. Incorporating fringe into a short, preppy 'do can be a stylish choice for blondes, and some tips can help you pick your ultimate cut.

A pixie cut is a very short hairstyle that is similar to a close crop a male would wear. Actresses Anne Heche and Halle Berry are two of the actresses who wear this style well, and blondes can include short side-swept fringe for a cute and preppy look. Stylists will traditionally leave some pieces a bit longer around the ears and nape of the neck, which you can style with some pomade to flip outward in a pretty twist. A plaid headband can also be worn with this style to add an element of preppiness to the look.
Bobs are blunt-cut hairstyles that end just below the ears or chin. Popular from the 1920s on, bobs have been worn by modern celebrities like Jenny McCarthy and Victoria Beckham. Blondes can have their stylists cut the hair shorter in back with longer pieces in the front, a trendy look that is sleek and stylish. This style is traditionally worn straight, and you can blow-dry the cut with a flat paddle brush for a clean look that is easy to re-create once you leave the salon. Side-swept fringe work best for this look and they can be parted at one side to create a seamless connection with the longer front strands of the bob.
Blonde hair that is cut just above the shoulders offers more versatility over shorter lengths. Some celebrities that have worn this look are Reese Witherspoon and Carrie Underwood. You can add some blunt fringe to shoulder length hair for a modern look that maintains the clean, preppy effect you're going for. Once your hair is cut to the shoulder you can wear it parted down the middle or to the side. You can also blow-dry it straight with a round brush or work some mousse into the hair while it's still wet, letting it air-dry to create some tousled, beachy waves.
