Ideas for head-turning short haircuts please?

Thinking of going in for the chop...would love some picture inspiration! Head-turning in a fabulous way, obvs! 😂 Ideally with a fringe. Thanks lovelies. x

maybe something like this? (if it isn't too short)

I’m hoping to eventually get a short haircut similar to this (the end result). When that will be who can say but I’m fed up waiting!

I have (had - it's unkempt right now!!) similar to Matilda in Leon. I have had several people of around my age tell me they don't know why, but they think that I look like an assassin....the power of film, even if we don't realise we have been influenced.....
I have had a lot of compliments on it.
YouStupidBoy · 16/06/2020 17:12
@NameChange84 I really like that cut.
NiceLegsShameAboutTheFace · 16/06/2020 18:40
Would definitely turn heads
NameChange84 · 16/06/2020 19:05
Glad you liked it. The Leon Bob is cool too.
I saw a woman the other day with this sort of cut and she really suited it and I thought it was quite different and daring.
YouStupidBoy · 16/06/2020 19:41
I like the texture in that one.

Bobs aren't short hair
Google Michelle Williams short hair, hers was always lovely.
NameChange84 · 16/06/2020 19:51
No-one recommended a bob @cocolapew
OP said she HAS a bob and she is wanting short hair.
NameChange84 · 16/06/2020 19:52
Sorry got mixed up there myself and thought YouStupidBoy was the OP ...don’t mix your painkillers folks lol

I posted a photo of my face by mistake. Have reported. Sorry.
Had mine cut today, turned out shorter than expected.

I asked my hairdresser for a Mary Nightingale.
I don't know if it's head turning but many people have commented on it. Mind you, he's a very good hairdresser. If you find one of those the haircut will be head turning anyway.
Lilysharp · 16/06/2020 20:12
Depends what type of hair you have?
Starfish83 · 16/06/2020 20:47
Thanks very much for the responses so far.
Just to clarify, I’m including bobs in my thinking - @Cocolapew, apologies if this isn’t technically short hair and I have my wording wrong. 😬
and @NameChange84, I really like those cuts, and @YouStupidBoy, I love yours! What’s the upkeep, etc. like?
Thanks @NiceLegsShameAboutTheFace, those women look amazing, but those styles aren’t for me!
@Chochito, your hair looks gorgeous, hope you’re pleased with it!
@Lilysharp, hair is fine but masses of it (so people think I have thick hair). Currently very long. I like having lots of hair, don’t want it to be ‘thinned out’, so thinking a blunt, precision cut might work... x

Something very similar to this with a shaved undercut on the sides rather than a scissor undercut.
MaverickDanger · 16/06/2020 20:51
Ahh picture didn’t attach annoyingly
Cocolapew · 16/06/2020 20:55
I thought my hair was long when i had a bob 😂
Cocolapew · 16/06/2020 20:59
Is this too short?
Lilysharp · 16/06/2020 22:17
This is nice
Lilysharp · 16/06/2020 22:23
Also this...probably is thinned out but still looks thick?
Carolbaskinstiger · 16/06/2020 22:27
A mullet would certainly turn heads
YouStupidBoy · 17/06/2020 05:39
@Starfish83 the upkeep means really frequent trims as it's a really sharp, precision cut and you need to really trust your hairdresser to get it right at first! If you're in a hurry it looks fine just tucked behind your ears though.
Chochito · 17/06/2020 08:54
How frequent trims @YouStupidBoy?
NameChange84 · 17/06/2020 09:05
Given your update and that your hair is very long I’d maybe try a bob first, then it’s not as much of a shock and quicker to grow out than really short hair. And if you like it and want to go shorter then the option is their too. If you’ve got fine hair then it probably will look better shorter.
I love Annabel Scholey from The Split’s hair. Here’s a picture of it straight and wavy, it’s shortish layered bob.
