So, you’ve made the decision to wear your hair short. It’s freshly cut and styled, and you want to keep it looking salon-perfect from here on out. But, how do you do that? It looked so easy when they did it!
Here are some tips on styles and products:
1. Bob haircuts can be both very feminine and tomboyish. Do you go for the long bang,
windswept look that can be stick straight or tousled? Or, the very short, pixie-like look of Emma Watson’s style? With a Bob, you can work in some texturizer like Hyrating Argan Oil Hair Mask by Arvazallia and scrunch with your fingers for a height and some body. Or, you can use a heat protecting hair care cream, mousse or spray before using a flat iron to tamp down that flyaway hair.
2. Curls can be “well-defined and frizz-free with non-greasy Ouidad’s Curl Quencher Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream. Using both hands, distribute a small amount thorough damp hair and style using a diffuser (see Tip #3 in my last Blog post.) You’ll get a strong hold with soft bouncy curls. And, it gets high marks for not drying your hair out!
3. Chin length, or even a little longer, you can add a side braid that will pull the hair off your forehead and give you some height (Again with the height, you say! Do I have a complex? No! Adding height to your hair lengthens your face and makes it appear narrower. Just sayin’.) First, spritz your hair with a little hairspray to help it set a little. Then just part your hair over the middle of your eyebrow and start braiding. Use some more hairspray once you’re finished. This is a great “do” on a windy day.
4. And, that’s a Wrap! I mean, use a wrap, or a silk scarf. Once you’ve got your bangs just so and the rest of your hair gathered high, grab your square scarf. Fold corner to corner so you have a triangle. Fold the tip in about 2 inches, and then fold it another two inches. Wrap (See, you knew I’d “tie” it in there) the scarf around your head with the folds on the inside. Tie it in a knot, then again, and tuck the ends into the scarf. Voila!
