Having short hair can make you feel like you don’t have a lot of options when it comes to styling. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth! There are plenty of options for hairstyles for short hair that are stylish and fun. Below, you will find 20 hairstyle ideas for short hair that you can bring to your next appointment.
French Braid Crown
Though it will take a bit of effort to get right, a French braid crown is perfect for special occasions or days when you want to feel extra special. This hairstyle requires small sections of hair, so if you have short layers, you will need to take extra care to make sure your braid looks neat. The best part about this is, when the day is done, you can brush out the braid and add some product to get some holding power back.
Changing the color of your hair is a great way to add a bit of drama and excitement to your look without going overboard. Two-tone coloring gives the hair depth and can even make the hair look thicker. You can keep it simple with a few shades of brown or spice it up with blond, blue and purple.
Natural Curls or Waves
If you were blessed with natural curls or waves, why not show them off? Your stylist can help give you the tools and products to help you achieve the look you want, whether you want a beachy wave or a bouncy curl. Having a good leave-in conditioner and a good curl defining cream will go a long way to achieving the look you want.
Mixed Texture Cut
Adding a few subtle layers around your face or throughout your hair, known as a mixed-texture cut, can add dimension without changing your overall length. Strategically placed layers can make the hair look fuller and provide added interest. Also, as your hair grows in, the layers can be cut shorter or taken out completely without having to worry about a bad haircut.
A retro updo, like the classic beehive, is the perfect look for a glamorous and special evening. Whether you want to achieve a classic beehive or something more modern, a stylist can help. With all of the styling products and tools available today, you can find the perfect style for you and all you need is a few practice runs to perfect it.
If you want your hair to look soft and voluminous, try adding long layers around your face. Depending on your look, a stylist can blend the layers to blend in subtly or add texture throughout to make your hair look thicker. For added oomph, use a bit of volumizing product like a mousse or curling cream to help hold the style.
