4 Ways To Style Short Hair

September 7, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

If you have long hair you probably assume having short hair means spending much less time styling and primping it so that it looks fab. Of course, if your hair is already short, you’re doubling over with laughter at the very thought. Short hair can actually take more product and steps to look great because, remember: you don’t have the luxury of throwing your hair in a bun and calling it a day. With that said, keeping a few short hair styling tips in mind can give you a fashion-forward look that tells the world a lot about your personality and personal style.

So, where to begin when styling short hair? Simple: with great products and hair accessories that make the most of your hair length and type. Whether you’re searching for a style that is sleek and sophisticated, pretty and posh, or super fun and funky, these tips will ensure you make the most out of your short hair.

1) Get A Super Sleek Bob

If you have your hair cut into a bob, one way to show off the sharp blunt edges of this style is by working applying a styling gel to damp hair and combing it through. You can part your hair down the middle or create a deep side part using a teasing comb. Grab a paddle brush and hair dryer and work in sections to dry hair smooth and straight. Once hair is completely dry, you can clip one side back using a glittery or ornate barrette. Finish styling by spraying a product like Luster Pink Oil Sheen Shine Spray throughout hair for a gloriously healthy shine.

2) Give Short Hair Major Texture

Whether you have a bob, layered bob, or more of a lob, shorter hair looks amazing with a bit of texture and roughened-up ends. Apply a sea salt spray to damp hair and create a side part using a teasing comb. Scrunch your hair slightly as you dry strands using a blow dryer or diffuser. Don’t be afraid to go over a few strands with a curling wand to add more volume. Set your look with a few spritzes of a quality hair spray like L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray

3) Create A Pixie Mohawk

Want your pixie haircut to be a little more downtown chic? Start with second-day hair, which is more manageable than squeaky clean and soft hair. Using a small, 1-inch barrel curling iron, curl random section of hair to create texture. Next, apply a strong-hold styling paste into hair and lift the top section of hair up. Keep working the product in until you’ve reached a desirable amount of lift.

4) Slick Hair Back

There’s nothing sexier or fiercer than slicked-back short hair that looks effortlessly cool. Towel dry hair after washing it and apply a generous amount of gel throughout your hair. Using a comb, brush, or just your fingers, keep pulling hair back as you dry it with a blow dryer. If you want a wet-hair style, apply more gel once your hair is dry to create an even slicker look. Add contrast with a beaded, princess-style wide headband.
