How to Make Vintage Waves for Short Hair: Fab Hairstyles for Short Hair
Experiment with your short hair and discover how easily you can style it. Prove naysayers wrong by styling it in more ways than one. Check out these fab hairstyles for your short mane.
1. Asymmetrical Long Pixie
We all love the pixie cut because it suits most face shapes. But more than that, it is a great hairstyle that you can style in different ways and one of them is the asymmetrical cut. With one side shorter and the other one covering a part of your face, it creates the look of mystery and sophistication. Though most perfect for oval-shaped face, it can also be worn on a round face as the longer part balances the width of the face.
2. Bouncy Beach Waves
Waves are literally making waves among Pinays these days and that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Who can resist the light and bouncy feel of wavy hair against your shoulders? It’s the perfect look for an evening at a posh restaurant or beachside gazebo that doesn’t make you worry about getting a wind-messed look.
Editor’s tip: When styling with heat-styling tools, protect your hair with VO5 Heat Protect Spray Enjoy smooth, shiny, and bouncy waves every time.
3. Headband Braid
If you’re a fan of braids, then, you’ll absolutely love this headband braid hairstyle. All you need is mastery of braiding your own hair and doing it from the top of your hairline, going down to one side to form your headband. It’s a great hairstyle that keeps your hair off your face while still leaving enough volume of hair loose for a touch of femininity.
4. Pixie Cut with Sideswept Bangs
Heart-shaped faces will definitely look fab in this style of pixie. The long side-swept bangs disguise a wide forehead but keep a sexy and pointy chin visible. It is versatile–make it sleek for work and evening affairs or messy for casual events and a relaxed vibe. Accentuate your hair with a pair of hoop or dangling earrings and you’re ready to conquer the world!
5. Straight and Beautiful Bob
Make your chin-length bob super fab by making it super straight with a part in the middle. Use a roller brush to make it curve inward as you let it dry. Square and round-shaped faces can benefit greatly from this hairstyle because the sides cover a small portion of your face, creating the illusion of narrower cheeks.
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair straight and frizz-free all day with a coin-size drop of Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream. You can enjoy your day knowing that your hair will stay immaculately straight.
Style your short hair and show the world that anything is possible with creativity and effort.
