Blunt straight bob

A sharp, sleek bob is a super-cool short hairstyle for those wanting to make a statement. Straightforward and quick to style, it’s a low maintenance look that’ll work for any occasion. To achieve healthy, razor-sharp locks, use ghd straight & smooth spray and the ghd platinum™ styler to avoid any flyaways. Our tri-zone® technology within the styler will also give you added shine and poker straight tresses that stay put.

Pin Back

Pin back

Add volume to your short hairstyle with a half up pinned back look. This style pulls the hair away from your face and can create extra height in your hair - perfect for rounder face shapes. Put a little extra bounce in your style with the ghd curve® classic curl tong. The barrel is specifically designed to create stunning lustrous curls, even on short hair.

Classic curls

Nothing says fun and flirtatious like sultry bouncing curls. Short curly hairstyles are ideal for those with a longer face as they sit so well on your cheekbones, creating texture and making your facial structure pop. To ensure your curls stay in place all day, prep your hair with the ghd curl hold spray and style with the ghd curve® classic curl tong.

Corkscrew curls

Get ready to roar with a fabulous mane of twirls and curls. A show-stopping head of ringlets is a stunning look for a shorter style. This type of curl frames your cheekbones and highlights the jawbone, creating killer contours and making it perfect for those with a heart-shaped or long face.

Simple Ponytail

If you don’t have time to spend hours styling your hair, keep it simple and pull it back with this classic short hairstyle. A ponytail is easy to achieve with shorter locks, creating effortless glamour in moments. Just use an elasticated band and a touch of ghd smooth and finish serum to complete your look.

Styled Crop

Styled crop

Short and most definitely sweet, a styled crop is a little longer than the pixie cut. Style it up to create something choppy and daring with a sassy edge, or straighten and sweep to one side for asymmetrical sleekness. Use a mist of ghd final fix hairspray to keep your style in place.

With stunning short styles at every turn, picking a fabulous new look is half the challenge. No matter which short hairstyle you decide on, an exciting new cut will leave you feeling glamorous and brimming with confidence.
