How to style short hair?

Short curly hair

Take your hair to the next level with gorgeous curls. If you have short, straight hair, a blowout can help create natural waves or face-framing curls. Take medium sized hair and use a straightener or curling iron to slightly bend the ends towards or away from the face for a natural feel. Be careful not to forget to apply heat protectant before using hot tools.

Try a low bun

Short hair doesn't mean you have to always wear it down. The low bun is stylish and sophisticated, while also being very low maintenance. While this look works best on people with straight hair, straighteners make this look achievable for any hair type. Once your hair is prepped, pull it into a low ponytail and part it in two. Wrap one part into a bun, then wrap the second part around it. Secure it with bobby pins, and you're done!

Natural wave

If you have naturally wavy or curly hair, short haircuts are a great way to embrace them. If not, try changing up your short hair with waves. Use a straightener or curling iron to create waves for short hair and use a setting spray so you can always have worry-free waves.

Styling tips for short hair

Here are some tips to keep your hair looking its best, check out the following ways to maintain your short hair.

Keep your hair hydrated: While short hair does feel healthier, it still needs a little pampering. Use a hair mask once a week to help deeply nourish your hair. This will help enhance shine and keep hair soft and bouncy.

Regular trims: Regular visits to the salon are necessary to keep your short hair looking its best. This also helps prevent split ends and keeps hair from looking dull and frizzy.

Experiment with your hair parting: change it up with a middle or side part, or even a zigzag part! Use a wide-toothed comb to style the sections of your choice. The easiest way to create a middle or side part is on wet hair. Create the part of your choice, then blow dry with a brush to ensure the part stays in place.


Short hair can sometimes feel restrictive when it comes to styling. If you recently cut your hair short or have it short, it may be hard for you to find ways to get creative. It can be difficult to wear a bun, updo or simple ponytail without enough length to tie your hair up. Therefore, many women will choose to use wigs to help design more hairstyles.
