Just Got A New Hair Cut And Don't Know How To Style It?

Sunday, 22 January 2012

Getting a new hair cut can be exciting (but also scary)! Once the newness has worn off, you are sometimes left with hair that is much different to style than you previous had. 

Here are some ideas on how to style your hair to make everyday a little bit different...

 Pixie or Crop Cut
Even though you don't have too much hair, there is a lot you can do with it! Use different types of wax and gel to get a different look. Play around with the texture of your hair. You can have it smooth or choppy to get a different effect.  Headbands and clips are a cute way of adding a girly twist on short hair. You can do a quiff if your fringe is long enough to give it more edge. You can also sweep a longer fringe to the side. Otherwise play around with your parting to change it up. If you love having short hair but want a change, use highlights or lowlights to give a bit more depth to the hair cut. Wear gorgeous earrings and necklaces since more skin is on display. 

Since you have more hair to play around with, you can start to use styling tools to either make your hair straight, or curly. Use a small hair curler to curl the ends, or apply a sea salt spray or curl enhancer to make it more wavy. You can also start to put in small plaits and twists into the hair. Pining your hair back from your face is great for a hot day or if you are working out/playing sport. Continue to use clips, headbands and even scarves in your hair for more colour. 

The Lob is one of the most versatile cuts you can have. It is long enough to be put into a ponytail, can be braided/plaited and looks great up or down, but isn't too long to be a pain. Having a blunt lob can look so chic. Play around with your parting to change it up. You can also incorporate a sweeping fringe for something different, include a few layers for more texture or have it longer at the front so your hair still frames your face. 

What is your favourite "short hair" look?

  3. I am craving a lob but am not brave enough. My hair is the longest it's ever been so I am just consentrating on keeping it healthy at the moment. These styling tricks are great though X

  4. Me too Ingrid. But my hubby would kill me - he loves my hair long. Maybe when he is away next I can cut it off ;) XO
