Hair Styling Must-Haves for Short Hair
Here are a few hair styling tools and products to get your short locks looking fabulous.
One of the most versatile styling tools is ghd. The larger sized flat irons are best for longer lengths or lobs. For anything shorter than a regular bob, a ghd mini styler will be perfect. This styler will allow you to create a variety of styles, from sleek and straight to wavy. You’ll be able to add volume and body or tame flyaways and frizz. This tool works well on very short styles such as pixies - especially if you have naturally curly or wavy hair and you want a straighter look. Smaller sized curling tongs can work well on bobs while dryers and brushes are still a great choice for every hair length.
Next up, you’ll need to have a few styling products on hand to mix up your style. For very short haircuts such as pixies, styling wax is a versatile product that can help add body and shape. Gels are also good for a wet-look effect that holds well throughout the day. Sprays and spritzes can give you light, medium or stronghold. You can also try a hair oil if your hair is coarse or thick, to smooth the hair and add more shine.
Don’t forget to stock up on hair accessories, too. You can put those hair bands away and try using bobby pins, grips and headbands to get your hair out of your face and play around with styles. Add some colour to your short locks and you’ll have a whole new look.
From styling tools to a range of styling products, we’ve got all the hairstyling basics you need to keep your short hair in optimal shape.
