Sleek, straight, and short. Have these qualities on your short hair, and you’ll be walking down the street like it’s your own modeling ramp. If you’re on your way to the salon to get a haircut, check out these ideas for short straight hairstyles. Let your hair stylist be guided in helping you get your dream ‘do.
1. Straight chin-length bob
Keep your bob straight by ironing your hair once it has dried. Don’t forget to spray heat protectant on your hair first. Iron the tips of your bob inwards get rid of fly aways and let your short straight hairstyle frame your face.
Editor’s tip: Spray TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist on your hair before using a flat iron or blow dryer to prevent heat damage.
2. Bowl cut
Editor’s tip: Got flaky scalp? Keep dandruff under control by washing hair with Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo.
3. Straight pixie cut
Naturally straight hair is less prone to frizz and unwanted volume. For some women with naturally straight hair, a pixie cut can pretty much be a wash-and-wear ‘do (how lucky!). When you want to spice things up, you can style your pixie cut to add a bit of volume and texture.
Editor’s tip: Spritz a small amount of TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your palms and scrunch through your hair for added texture and definition.
4. Apple cut hair
Recreate this hair trend by sporting a tapered cut. This way, your apple cut looks fresh and updated. You can keep the layers neat and maintain your hair’s shape with a drop of hair serum to control frizz and flyaways.
5. Straight bob with bangs
Blunt bangs give your look a high-fashioned twist. Blow dry your bangs right away after towel drying. Letting your fringe dry on its own is a hair disaster waiting to happen. Apply hair serum to the rest of your hair to keep frizz at bay.
Editor’s tip: Say goodbye to greasy bangs. Combat excess oil on your fringe with TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo.
6. Layered bob
Layers can keep short straight hairstyles from looking flat while maintaining a polished look. If you have thick, straight hair, a layered ‘do will help distribute the volume. Keep hair nourished and moisturized by applying leave-on conditioner before stepping out of the house.
Editor’s tip: A small amount of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream can go a long way in keeping your tresses moisturized. Its light and non-sticky formula won’t weight down your hair.
7. Sleek center part bob
When your bob starts growing, flyaways are inevitable. Don’t let this hair woe win by ironing your bob sleek and straight. This hairstyle can make you look confident and put-together when you need to pitch to a client or when you’re interviewing for your dream job.
8. The Side Sweep
A look that’s been taking over the runways, the Side Sweep is a simple yet trendy hairstyle that’s great for any hair length. When done on short hair, the Side Sweep can make you look fresh-faced especially when you adorn it with cute hair accessories!
9. Bobby pin hair crown
If you have several bobby pins on hand, why don’t you create a bobby pin hair crown? It’s an easy but stunning hairstyle that you can wear to school, movie nights with your friends, or even to parties and music festivals.
10. Half updo for short hair
Just take a small section of hair from your hairline to your crown, pin it, and voila! When you want to keep your hair off your face in a stylish way, you can never go wrong with a half updo for short hair. This hairstyle can also help you show off your statement earrings!
11. Platinum blonde bob
Get ready to look bold and edgy by getting a short haircut and dyeing your hair platinum blonde. This combo’s a head-turner!
12. Bob with blue highlights
Another way to add oomph to your short straight hair without a lot of styling is by getting blue highlights. It makes your naturally dark hair look more radiant, especially when hit by light. And when you get blunt bangs, you make your look edgy and high-fashion.
13. Blonde to pink ombre
14. Icy blonde bowl cut
Look twice as edgy with an icy blonde bowl cut. With this short straight hairstyle, you’ll be walking down the streets in style as though you’re on the runway.
15. Low ponytail for short hair
Is your short hair starting to grow? Tie it in a low ponytail if flyaways begin to pop and bother you. Tame your tikwas by applying hair serum or leave-on cream before styling your hair. You can also spritz hairspray as your last step to nail a polished hairstyle.
16. Sleek pixie cut
Styling your pixie cut for a client pitch? Maintain a sleek and polished ‘do all day by brushing your hair back and sealing it with hairspray. You can even wear this hairstyle straight out of the boardroom and to the bar when you and your colleagues celebrate after your successful presentation.
