Tips for the Best Short Hair Styles
Learn how to get salon style everyday with these tips for the best short hair styles
1. Play up your texture
With short hair styles, your texture finally has a chance to stand out. You've lobbed off all of those pesky dead ends for healthier looking hair, so it's the perfect time to play up your natural texture. Use a dime-sized amount of texturizer and apply evenly throughout hair. We recommend Total Beauty's 2013 Beauty Awards winner Unite Beach Day Texturizing Spray.
2. Limit heating tools
You're trying to showcase your new haircut as one of best short hair styles, not as a poster child for heat styling gone wrong. Be careful how much heat you apply when using flat irons, curlers, or any heat styling tool. Skip the blow dryer to cut heat damage in half (short hair dries faster anyway). But if you must blow dry, wait 20-30 minutes after getting out of the shower before drying hair. With an ample amount of time to air dry, it will take less time (meaning less damage) to blow dry and you'll still be able to control the final style. If the flat iron is your styling tool of choice, check out this helpful tutorial to straighten hair like a pro.
3. Use appropriate products
With short hair, less really is more when it comes to hair products. If you slather too much onto your hair, it's easy to end up with greasy hair or, worse, 'helmet head'. Make sure the amount of product you're applying is proportionate to how much hair you're applying it to. And as a rule of thumb, start out with less than you think you'll need (you can add more later). We recommend trying these fantastic high-end products that will leave hair flawless.
Follow these tips, and you're guaranteed to have the best short hair styles around.
