It seems that this year everyone is getting the chop and opting for a shorter length ‘do’. Whether you’ve gone for a long bob or pioneered the pixie cut, be sure to style it right.
Finding a style to suit your short hair
We recommend trying this style if you want to ease yourself into the world of shorter hair. It gives you a chance to keep some of your locks long until you’re ready to fully commit to a shorter style.
If your short hair is still long enough to create a chignon, then we recommend creating a chic and sophisticated look by pulling hair back into a low ponytail that sits at the bottom of your neck. Then, leaving strands – or a fringe – undone at the front will help to shape your face and create a sleek style.
Choose your weapon
Whether it’s curls or poker straight style you want, choosing the right tools will help you maximise your look. Hair with a little more bounce and volume will hold curls with greater ease, but don’t let that discourage those with straight hair – by using a straightener as a crimper to create loose waves, hair will stay full and with more volume for longer.
When it comes to choosing the kit that will best help you perfect your style, we suggest using heat sparingly if you can. If you can’t, then opting for a heat protecting spray such as Clynol’s Flatter Thermal Protector will help shield your hair from the wear and tear that heat treatments cause.
Choosing the right product
It is always important to choose products that will help your style last longer and keep it perfectly in place. If you want to create a wavy, textured look then we suggest trying Fudge Salt Spray, as it will ensure optimum flexibility and hold while giving you a crisp finish. Similarly, if your up-do needs up-keep, then using a holding hairspray will keep flyaway’s at bay and your hair looking beautiful.
