As much as I love scouring Pinterest, I can’t help but admit to getting a little frustrated at the hair section. Where are all the ways to style short hair?! I’ve been a short-haired gal for 4.5 years and you can do so much more than just “add a headband”. Over the next few weeks I want to share some of my tried and true short hair styles!
Some side notes: I currently have an inverted bob, but I’ve worn most of these styles with various hair lengths. (I’ve had everything from a shaggy crop to almost shoulder length bob in the last few years.) I also have very very fine and straight hair, but most of these work on various hair types.
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to wear my hair. This is a great style if you’re a fine haired lady who longs for a little volume! It doesn’t hurt if you don’t mind messy hair. ;) This look was inspired by Elizabeth over at Delightfully Tacky…she has the best curls!
(And please ignore my roots.. It’s about time to bust out the bleach again.)
Start out with clean, straight hair. Section off 1-2in pieces and use a flat iron to curl the hair from root to tip. I always start with the sides and then finish the back using a handheld mirror. For the shorter parts on the back that won’t wrap around the flat iron, just curl them under.
After all the hair has been curled, let your hair cool down so the curls set. (I usually do my makeup while waiting.) Take your favorite volumizing powder, I use got2be’s version, flip your head over and apply the powder to your roots. You may have to “de-fluff” your hair after this step, as it makes your hair pretty big! Use a little hairspray to scrunch some of the curls and set everything.
This style does take a few minutes, but I’ve found I can wear it this way 3-4 days only using a little dry shampoo in the mornings. (I hate washing my hair!)
I’ll be sharing an alternate way to wear this style next week!
