Most women prefer short haircuts as they are not hard to style and neither are they costly to maintain. Short hairstyles can be made on any hair type, or texture and they can even be styled such that they match your face shape.
Short hair is very manageable as you are only working with a small quantity. There are so many ways to style your short hair. Here are common short hairstyles for women you would want to try out this year. Take a look.
1. Breezy Bob
Rocking a bob is a very classic way of styling your short hairstyles that exude a sense of style. A breezy bob is created by first applying a smoothening cream on your hair before blow-drying it. This ensures that you get very smooth straight hair. Straightening the hair is done to ensure that the bangs drop perfectly on the sides of the head.
After blow-drying, use a curling iron to slightly bend the edges of the hair. Ensure that the curves are made inwards such that they face the cheeks. Ensure that the curls look as natural as possible.
2. Textured Pixie
Adding some texture to your pixie helps to bring out some of your hidden personalities. The texture is created by making the edges slightly spiky and curled. Use a brush and a blow dryer with a concentrated nozzle to lay the hair in the style that you need. The concentrated nozzle helps to add volume to the hair while at the same time styling the pixie.
Use any hair spray to help create texture to your hair and gently rub it in with your fingers. If you wish to create bangs on your pixie, roll them out with the brush in order to retain the hair volume and texture.
Use a small amount of wax to set the hair and lay it in the required position. Use a hair dryer to dry the excess hair products.
3. Curly Shag
Curly short hairstyles are perfect for those with naturally curly hair. All that needs to be done on the hair is making the right texture and increasing the volume of the hair. You can use hair products or a concentrator nozzle blow dryer to maximize the volume that you get on the hair.
You can also make curls on the hair by rubbing it in the opposite direction. Use your fingers to gently push your hair in the opposite direction and then use a brush to straighten the edges. You can also make random waves so that the hair looks shaggy in an attractive way.
4. Texturized Bob
This bob usually has a wet and shiny appearance. This texture is achieved by firstly adding volume to the hair. The damp look on the hair is achieved by perfectly spraying the hair. Create curls on the hair while it is still wet. This ensures that the waves you create last longer on your hair.
You can choose to add a fringe to these short hairstyles for a classic feminine appearance. You can also part the hair in the middle and rock curly curtain bangs.
5. Sleek Chignon
Some people think that it is not possible to rock a bun with short hair. A chignon is one of the ways to hold your short hair into a bun. The hair is first parted at the center and held very low at the back of the head. This way of styling your short hair is very easy to maintain because once the bun is well secured at the back, you are ready to go.
Although this style is best for straight hair types, you can use a blow dryer or a flat iron to straighten your curled hair. Separate the hair in the middle and apply hair oil to give your hair a shiny appearance. Ensure that the bun is strong enough by securing it using decorative hair pins.
