Let’s face it. Short hair is incredible. You don’t have to take showers that last more than five minutes. You save hours of time in the morning because you don’t have to spend an inordinate amount of time blow-drying and styling your hair. Plus, you automatically stand out in any crowd as the cool and unique woman with short hair. Cutting your hair short is a transformative life change for the better. Once they go short, many women never think of growing their locks again.
Short hair definitely comes with an abundance of benefits for any woman in terms of both style and convenience. However, many women complain that they get bored with their short hair after a while. There’s no question that having cropped locks significantly limits the number of styling options you have available to you. While this increases the convenience of your life as a whole, it can also get boring and frustrating. However, styling short hair in a variety of ways isn’t impossible. It just requires a bit more creativity than styling longer hair. In fact, there are countless different unique ways you can style your short hair to change up your gorgeous look on a daily basis.
Once you cut your hair into a pixie, you might think that you can never enjoy the classic comfort of braided hair again. However, this simply isn’t true. Even if the back of your cut is extremely short, you can create adorable braids using longer pieces of hair in the front. Then, just pin the braids under your hair for a unique twist on a classic style.
If your hair is long enough to straighten, it’s definitely long enough to curl. Many women balk at the idea of curling their short hair. However, curling short hair shouldn’t be something that receives scoffs of disbeliefs. As you can see from the picture above, short hair looks gorgeous nd voluminous when paired with loose curls.
You can’t go wrong with a classic, straightened style. Arm yourself with a heat protectant, smoothing product, and a high-temperature flat iron. Then, get to work straightening small sections of your cut at a time. You’ll achieve a sleek, perfect pin-straight style in half the time it takes to straighten a head of long hair.
Coloring your hair can be a style in itself. If your hair is very short and provides you with very few style options, try dying your hair instead. Don’t be afraid of choosing fun colors from every area of the rainbow. Just make sure that the colors you choose are complementary to each other and to your skin tone for best results.
Your hair doesn’t always have to look sleek to look beautifully styled. Sometimes, a purposely messy style creates a gorgeous look all on its own. All you need to create this look with a short haircut is a comb and some volumizing hair product. Use the product liberally and tease the bottom sections of your hair using the comb to produce volume that looks natural.
Curling your short hair doesn’t always mean creating ringlets all around. Use a flat iron or a wide curling iron to create loose curls that frame your face. This style appears more natural than ringlet curls and looks fresh for a much longer perfiod of time as well.
When you have a long pixie cut, style options can seem slim. The next time you’re feeling like your hair will never not look like a mess, pull out a mini flat iron and some heat protectant. Use the flat iron and the hair product to straighten sections of your hair and leave some volume in the back for a smooth and balanced finish.
Create a wind-blown look for your short hair with nothing more than a blow dryer and a round brush. Use the round brush and blow dryer in tandem to create volume where it’s needed and finish the look with hairspray.
An A-line bob looks gorgeous when it’s straight. To successfully straighten this hair cut, curl the ends under when you’re done flat ironing for a sleek and smooth finish.
Don’t be afraid to add in some accessories to your short hair. Especially when you’re in the middle of growing out a cropped cut, headbands can be your best friend. Don’t worry too much about positioning the headband perfectly. Just wrap it around your hair in a way that looks natural and use pins to secure it against your head.
