Choosing the Right Cut

While inspirations for short hair styles are in plenty, finding the right style for yourselves may end up being a difficult task. To find your perfect hairstyle you will have to take into consideration factors such as face shape, hair texture, colour choices and at what level you will be able to maintain your hair. 

If you have a heart-shaped face, a layered haircut with a deep side part will highlight your cheekbones and distract attention away from the width of your forehead.

For people with an oval face, an angular bob will highlight the strong features of the jawline or perhaps if your face is more rounded, a pixie haircut is the simplest way to add volume in the forehead and lengthen the face.


Styling Short Hair

Now that you have seen how to choose the perfect cut it is time to look into some innovative ways in which you can make your new haircut work. 

Styling short hair with layers

If you are tired of seeing sleek bobs everywhere, use a texturizing spray to create a sloppy, lived-in texture. Apply a curling wand to the ends of your hair with a multi styler Airwrap to create flipped-out curls and waves that add a new depth to your layers. 


Styling Short Hair with gel

A little styling cream or gel can go a long way in adding a new shine to your hair.

Instead of slicking it all over, use a coin-sized amount from the mid-lengths to the ends and comb your hair into a side part for a polished look. 


Styling Short hair with bangs

Bangs may have an undeserved reputation for being difficult to style, but with a quick blowdry and a round brush, you will be ready for anything the day throws at you.

For those wondering how to style short hair and curtain bangs, the answer is to part it down the centre in the shape of an inverted ‘V’ shape, which will elegantly frame your best features. 


Styling short hair that is growing out

While your daring new haircut may have earned you a lot of praise when you were fresh out of the saloon, it can be difficult to maintain the perfect look at every stage of hair growth. Face-framing layers can ease the path as you transition to a longer hairstyle without reducing length and always remember to have a leave-in serum on hand to keep loose hair at bay.


Styling short hair without a hair dryer

No hairdryer? Not an issue. The simplest way to style short hair without products is to choose innovative hairstyles that suit the texture and length of your hair.

Simply tease your hair into a crown braid that works for all hair lengths—don’t worry about loose hair; a chaotic texture adds to the charm of the look.

Maintaining Short Hair

Once you have found the look that is perfect for you the next step will be to maintain that look. Maintaining short hair can be a daily task that varies on factors such as climate. 

Anti-frizz shampoos, leave-in conditioners and wide-toothed combs help in keeping tangles and loose hair at bay during humid weather while deep conditioning treatments, hydrating hair masks and moisturising hair oils will be your short hair grooming essentials during the dry months where preventing damage and split-ends should assume top priority.


Accessorizing Short Hair

Just because you have short hair, it does not mean you cannot add a touch of elegance to it. If you are looking to infuse some fresh energy to your style, you get to pick from a variety of accessories for short hairstyles.

Clip a sparkly hair clip into one or both sides of your hair to create a festive look or whenever you feel like adding a bit of sparkle to your day.


Barrettes are the first thing that springs to mind when it comes to a somewhat more feminine look that gets a lot of attention. Top your braided updo with a stunning jewelled barrette to keep it in place while also enhancing the haircut.


If golden headbands aren’t exactly your thing, then how about embroidered bobby pins for your natural hair? Combine two of these beautifully embroidered bobby pins to give your short hairdo a charming look. 


When it comes to finding that perfect hairstyle that is straight out of your dreams the only rule is that there is no rule. Keep experimenting and trying out new hairstyles until you find the style that speaks to you.
