Short hair is in right now! Chopping off your locks can be the best thing to happen to your style, but if you’re used to long hair, styling your shorter cut can take some getting used to. Luckily, we’re here to help.
Read on for some quick and easy short style hacks that’ll have you leaving the house feeling like a star.
But first thing’s first!
Before You Cut
Short hair can suit anyone but certain lengths and styles may suit you more than others. Before you head in for the big chop, think about the following.
Consider Face Shape
Your face shape will often dictate the style of cut that’ll suit you the most. A pixie undercut or short bob with a fringe will compliment a heart-shaped face while a stacked bob with a messy fringe best suits those with round faces.
Short styles are stereotyped as the least upkeep, but sometimes this isn’t the case. If your cut is more suited to straight hair while yours is on the wavy side, be aware you’re going to have to spend time in the morning getting your hair to behave.
Short hair also doesn’t let you have a day off. With long hair, if you don’t feel up to the task of styling it, it’s easy to pull it up into a messy ponytail and be done with it. Not so with short styles.
If you’re the type of person who likes to roll out of bed and out the door, then you’ll thank yourself for choosing a haircut that’ll suit that effort in advance.
Consider Hair Type
Whether your hair’s thick or thin, wavy or straight, there’s a short style to suit everyone. But certain styles will suit thick hair better than thin hair, and vice versa.
If in doubt, ask your stylist in advance what styles would suit your hair type the best.
Short Hair Hacks
Without further ado, here are some hair styling hacks that’ll help you get the most out of your short style.
Prevent Bobby Pin Slippage
A short cut can be the bane of bobby pins. Use dry shampoo or texture spray on your bobby pins to give them more grip and stop annoying slippage.
Make Art With Your Bobby Pins
There’s nothing worse than a bangin’ style ruined by haphazard bobby pins. Sometimes you just can’t disguise your bobby pins no matter how hard you try.
Use your bobby pins to create designs in your hair. This gives your pins a deliberate look and keeps them from looking out of place or messy.
Create a Faux Fringe
This one is for all you gals rocking a bob. Create a faux fringe by parting your hair off to one side and sweeping that hair across your forehead. Secure behind your ear with a sturdy clip or chic headband.
Braid Back to Front
By braiding your hair from the nape of your neck up you avoid the hassle of trying to weave shorter, layered pieces at the front of your style.
The Short Style Updo
Updo’s aren’t out of your reach with short hair. Simply create a pompadour by pinning your bangs forward at the top of your head, then twist and pin the rest of your loose hair haphazardly at the back of your head.
Get the Most out of Your Short Style
With a little imagination and determination, your short style can be just as versatile as any longer counterpart. With these tips and tricks, you’ll be leaving the house with confidence every day of the week.
