TIPS FOR STYLING SHORT HAIR
“Short hair, don’t care! Short hair can do a lot more than you think. Here are 3 tips to help you make the most out of your shorter locks.” - ghd Ambassador, Stephanie Brinkerhoff
Make the top and sides interesting.
If you are going for an updo, don’t focus on creating bulk or volume in the back, like you would with long hair. Instead, focus on making the top and sides interesting. Try creating texture in your hair using the ghd curve® creative curl wand, and then do a tucked crown braid.
Keep it relaxed.
Nothing makes short hair look even shorter than a sleek, stiff hairstyle. I always go for loose, low, curly updos when it comes to short hair. Take advantage of your short layers and leave lots of face framing hairs out around your face. The perfect size curling iron for a relaxed curl on shorter hair is the ghd curve® classic curl wand.
Make it big.
Whether you do a full on afro, or loose beach curls, more volume will make it look like you have more hair. You don’t have tons and tons of hair to work with, so you can get away with a curly look like this without it being too time consuming. You can create a fun, messy look using a wand (such as the ghd curve® classic wave wand) or a flat iron (such as the ghd platinum™ styler). If you want a bouncier curl, use the ghd curve® classic curl iron.
