We consider critical phenomena on heterogeneous small-world networks having a scale-free character but also arbitrary short loops. After deriving the self-consistent equation for the order parameter and the critical surface, we prove that the critical behavior on complex networks is in fact infinitely robust with respect to the presence of arbitrary short loops.
