Ladies with short straight hair

How do you style your hair if it's really short? do you curl it at all? I'm growing my hair for locks of love and when the time comes I'm thinking about getting more chopped off to make it really short...something I havent done in many years.

  • it really depends on what you mean by 'short'. short as in chin-length? short as in pixie? the shorter and more layered/texturized you go, product will be your best friend, and make your styling more versatile.

  • I have a short layered bob as well, stacked in the back. I blow dry with a round brush and flat iron. Easy!

  • I had short hair for a while. It's not naturally straight so I had to straighten it daily..

    go for what works with your face shape
    for rounder faces I wouldn't do curls. Talk to your stylist, and they will tell you all you need to know, or PM me and we can talk about your face shape and styles that would work for you.

  • I use a flatiron some days to just curl the ends under a little bit; sometimes I go the opposite way to flip it out. When I have more time to get ready, I use a curling iron and put spiral curls all over the place. Using some light hairspray and a brush, it's a style you can wear the next day with hardly any touch up.
