1. Curly bob

Curls that are made well are bound to make jaws drop. If you want to add volume, texture, and pizzazz to your short, limp hair, this is the ‘do for you. You can curl your hair using a flat iron or a blow dryer. List down vintage curls, too, as a possible hairstyle. Don’t forget to spritz heat protectant on your locks before ironing or blow drying.

3. Wavy layers

Create beautiful waves on your choppy or layered bob. Beach waves for short hair is also a hairstyle option for you. You can go for wavy layers if you think curls look too strong or overbearing on you. Wavy hair is perfect for cocktail parties and semi-formal events. Complement your hair with a knee-length or midi-dress, and you’re all set!

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: Wavy hair and TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray go together like peanut butter and jelly. Make sure to spritz this wonder product on your hair when you’re done making your waves.

4. Bouncy bob

Daytime events like brunches or tea parties call for a simpler hairstyle. For these occasions, don’t let your hair fall flat. Blow dry your hair without the nozzle to open up your hair cuticles. Then, apply hair mousse and blow dry again to create a bouncy, voluminous short ‘do.

Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Maintain your hair’s natural volume by washing your locks with DOVE Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and DOVE Oxygen and Nourishment Conditioner

Hitting the clubs and bars on a Saturday night? Even if you don’t want to really style your hair, make sure your locks still look good even if you’re dancing your heart out. Create a sleek and simple ‘do by combing your hair with a fine-toothed comb and finishing with hairspray or hair serum. This way, frizz and fly-aways won’t ruin your night.

TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray
