No-Stress Hairstyles For Short Hair

Chopping your hair into a short bob can often feel like a blessing and a curse.

While it’s so much easier to get ready in the morning, sometimes if feels like there’s only one way to style your hair down.

Below are a few key hairstyles to keep your locks manageable and looking stylish at the same time.

Soft curls

Give your hair a bouncy look by curling small pieces with a wand, or even with the use of sea-salt spray. Since your hair is short enough to dry naturally, mist lightly with sea-salt spray and scrunch with your fingers. The result? A beachy style which looks really natural, and takes less than 5 minutes to create.

Bangs

Cutting some soft bangs not only frames the entire face, but gives you a little bit more to work with. You can wear them straight, curly, or even pinned back to create the illusion of thicker hair. Our favourite way to style bangs is by using a round brush, and styling backwards with the help of a hair dryer.

High ponytail

This works best on hair which is straight and has little to no layers, and is also quick and easy! Simply comb back all your hair, and secure in a high bun. Leave out any front layers to go with this beach-inspired look.

Low bun

If your hair is extremely short and layered, then a low bun is one of the best ways to switch up your look. Use mostly bobby pins to section your hair, and create tiny braids which are perfectly for almost any outing. Don’t forget to mist lightly with hairspray for that extra hold!

Get The Look: Lily Collins’ Textured Waves Hairstyle

Lily Collins’ textured waves with a centre part as seen at the Vogue Fashion Fund event at the Chateau Marmont in L.A. yesterday is such a cute hairstyle for short to medium-length hair. Here’s how celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak created the look in just a few easy steps.

1. Mara started by spraying Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray then rough drying the hair using the Harry Josh Pro Tools Hairdryer.

2. Next, she waved Lily’s hair using a one-inch barrel iron, creating a natural, textured wave.

3. To break up the style, she then used Serge Normant Dry Shampoo all over.

4. Then to add a bit more ‘piecey-ness,’ Mara rubbed Kevin Murphy Night Rider Matte Texture Paste into the palms of her hands and ran it through her hair.

5. Finally, she sprayed L’Oreal Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray all over to seal the textured wave.
