Short hair secrets revealed


Short hair might seem like the easy option when choosing a hairstyle. But we know the toil that comes with styling short hair every morning. Here’s how to master your short hair with these sneaky tricks.

The professional route

A professional hair cut is the first step. Avant-garde cuts require loads of heat styling to make them look runway-perfect. Your cut must look good just blowdried, before you even start styling it with your heating wand. Layers are great, but be careful of thinning your hair too much.

Go Straight

On your lazy days go for the sleek and clean look. The key to this look is wrapping your hair in your desired style the night before. In the morning just sleek over a little frizz serum and voila.

Texture texture

Before you ‘big chop’, decide if you will have your hair relaxed straight or texturised slightly. The curl route is the easiest option if you want fuss-free tresses. Post shower, apply a curl-cream or mosse, scrunch hair with your fingers and allow to dry naturally.

Add a little detail

With cuts that are voluminous, it’s easy to add a little interest to hair with little plaits or braids that you can tie up in an updo on wear down. If hair is too short add a little interest with a glam hair comb or pin.
