Whether you’re going for a pixie, shaggy or bob, short hair rules this spring! Here, how to make the most of this cut:
Step 1: Wash frequently
Do not over condition hair as it can get greasy, which is more noticeable on short hair. Oil build-up can be spread along the hair shaft when you comb through long hair, but on short cuts there’s no where for the oil to go so wash it frequently.
Step 2: Heat with care
Avoid blow drying short tresses too. If not, it’ll turn dry and frizzy. To create esy movement in short hair, use a leave-in treatment to protect hair from thermal damage. Then blow-dry, using your fingers to style and shape. Next, create definition by applying a styling cream for medium control.
Step 3: Style galore
Short hair is so versatile! Here’s the tips to help you achieve the look you want. Give fine, short hair volume by blow-drying strands at the crown with a round brush. Avoid using waxes, pomade or even serum as they’ll weigh strands down. Also, give hair a lift by using volumizing shampoo. If you have choppy cut, bring out the texture with highlights or tipping. Try temporary haircolour in funky hues.
For a texturized style, skip conditioner and rinse with cold water to give hair shine. Using a flat brush, blow-dry hair to one side. Direct air flow from end to root while ruffling hair. Then, brush hair to the other side. When hair is dry, spritz on a medium hold spray. Separate hair into sections around the head and backcomb for a lift. To style a shapeless boy-cut, apply a styling treatment on damp hair and scrunch for an unkempt look.
