Some people think that if you have natural waves, you should wear your hair long. This way, you’ll keep your hair from looking too thick and mushroom-like. Well, it’s time to change this notion. Even if you have wavy hair, you can rock a short ‘do! Here are gorgeous short wavy hair ideas to inspire you when you want to take a break from your long tresses.
1. Messy and tousled short wavy hair
The tried and tested way of styling your short wavy hair is by giving it a messy yet structured tousled look. This trendy hairstyle makes you look as though you’ve just woken up but in a very chic way.
Editor’s Tip: In order to pull off a put-together tousled look, you’ll need a texturizing product on hand. We recommend using TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to give your waves more definition and longer hold all day long.
2. Dip-dyed short wavy hair
Aside from haircuts, short wavy hair ideas can involve hair colors, too! Getting dip-dyed hair can be flattering and effortlessly stylish. It would look even better with layered waves, giving the color more depth and volume. You can also go for ombre hair if you want a subtle transition from dark to light colors.
Editor’s tip: Maintain your vibrant hair color by using Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner. This product also keeps your hair from drying out, so you can rock any hair color along with beautiful hair!
3. Wavy bob
Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with DOVE Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo to help enhance your hair’s natural volume by up to 95 percent. This way, you’ll get soft and bouncy hair that looks great whatever the length.
4. Short wavy hair with highlights
If getting an ombre is a bit too “out there” for you, then getting highlights and lowlights would definitely be the better option. This creates a more natural colored hair, giving more depth and effortless style to your short frock.
5. Short wavy hair with side part
Even as simple as changing the parting of your hair can make a great difference in your whole look. Create a side part if you want a more posh vibe. This hair hack can also make your hair look thicker.
6. Loose curls
If you’re somewhere in between messy short waves and short hair curls, go for loose curls. The ringlets are curlier than regular waves but not as tight as full-on curls. You can create this ‘do by using a curling iron with a small to medium-sized barrel.
Editor’s tip: Get beautifully defined curls by applying a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your hair before blow drying and ironing.
7. Short wavy hair with clip
Barrettes and hair clips are all the rage these days. If you’re finding it hard to keep your wavy hair in place, you can go for a cute barrette and clip one side of your hair for a quick but stylish fix!
8. Pink wavy hair
Are you game for a total transformation? Get a vibrant hair color for your short wavy hair. Pink is a trendy and playful option, especially when you want to reveal your artistic side through your hair. You can even get rainbow hair colors if you’re up for something totally unique.
Now, you have a lot of short wavy hair ideas to choose from. Save this list so you won’t run out of inspiration for your next hair makeover.
