Every once in a while, you decide to cut your hair, but you rarely do it. It doesn’t matter how many times you flip a coin or pull flower petals, hoping that destiny will set in motion. You must have the courage to cut your hair or have had a short hairstyle for a long time. Cutting your hair short is a process that can be difficult to begin, as many women quickly run out of hairstyling options. Many of us feel limited because of the length of the hair cut. There are, in fact, a myriad of ways to make short hair pop. So if you’re looking for ways to make a short hairstyle move, here are some tips from me.
1. Pixie Cut
Pixie’s may look like a one-trick pony, but this dramatic cut is versatile if you know what to do with it. Alternate the sense of iron to help create height and texture. Hair that’s messy and loose has a break, and short hair is no exception to the trend. First, ask your stylist for a bob or elf that squeezes the nape of the neck, with top lengths long enough to slip behind the ears, or at least close to the forehead (no short, bushy bangs, please!).
2. Blunt cuts
A blunt bob is another micro trend we’ve seen on the tracks and in the streets, and the new way to wear this huge 90’s comeback is super-cut and all in one length. If you want a haute couture look, ask your hairdresser to give you a blunt bob like Jourdan Dunn. The top model’s sharp cut is above her collarbone and includes angled layers. To soften the sharp angle, opt for shadow, which will soften the effect. However, this cut also works with straight, shiny hair, highlighting the dramatic angle.
3. Old Hollywood
When Taylor Swift cut her hair, it marked the beginning of a new era. While keeping her old Hollywood style, she’s constantly reinventing the looks of the past and enhancing them in a modern way. Taylor is also a fan of bangs, and these two hairstyles showcase different ways to wear bangs. To achieve either of these styles, we recommend curling the hair and pinning each curl to secure it once the hair has cooled down, unraveling it, and combing each curl to loosen the wave.
No one makes short waves on the beach like Ashley Benson; she knows how to change her style while keeping her pearl hair comfort zone. While the two looks below feature bohemian waves, one of them also features braids and a false shave. Brush the curls after you’re done turning them into soft waves. The idea with these two styles is not to get too hung up on the details, because for this look to be trendy, you need to take a no-nonsense approach.
5. Straight Hair
For a sophisticated look, there’s nothing like smooth, dead hair. Start with a crispy center part or side part, comb gel through damp hair with a fine-tooth comb and blow dry. If your hair is naturally straight, bend the ends underneath with a round brush when blow-drying. Use a styler and run it through hair as close to the roots as possible. If your hair is naturally straight, bend the ends with a round brush when blow-drying.
If your hair has been short for a while, it’s only natural to want longer strands. However, to gain that length, you have to go through the awkward intermediate phase. Nowadays, we call this length the lob. Some people prefer a deep side part, no matter if you wear shaggy waves or a curly updo to create an effortless finish. Use a double barrel iron, work hair in different directions before applying for texture and shine.
