Before you start, you’ll want to figure out what blowout hairstyle that you’ll be trying on your short hair. After all, not all blowout styles are the same! To inspire your look this, we’re sharing five of our favorite blowout hairstyles for short hair that you can easily try:

1. Perfectly Straight

Getting blowout hairstyles for short hair to end up perfectly straight can be kind of tricky. Instead of using the traditional round brush for the entire blowout, you’ll need to also use a paddle brush. Start your blowout by using TRESemmé Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum on the middle to ends of your hair. Blow-dry your hair until it’s about 90% dry with a round brush so your hair will have body. End your blowout with a flat brush to get a perfectly straight finish.

Natural volume is the holy grail!

2. Bendy and Voluminous

If bendy hair is more your thing, start your blowout by using some mousse. Mousse isn’t for crunchy curls anymore. Now you can use Dove Style+Care Volume Amplifier Mousse to achieve voluminous straight hair. Apply a small amount of mousse to your roots with your fingers then comb through with a wide tooth comb. Then do a normal at home blowout with a round brush. You’ll be left with perfectly voluminous, bendy hair.

3. Piecey Layers

To get this pretty, piecey look you’ll need to do a slight twist on your blowout. Instead of using a round brush to curl your hair under, use it to curl your hair upwards. This will give you tons of volume and a gorgeous vintage look. To get the piecey effect, use the Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel. Use a very small amount of the gel on the ends of your hair to sculpt and finish the look.

Wavy blowouts are all the rage.

4. Subtle Waves

We love when blowout hairstyles for short hair incorporate subtle waves. They are the perfect way to get extra body into shorter hair without using multiple tools. When doing your home blowout, get subtle curves by turning the brush angle when you get to the middle of the shaft. As you finish drying each section of hair, twist it around a few times to set the curve. When you’re done comb through your fresh blowout with your fingers.

5. Piecey Pixie

The piecey pixie look used to be very ’90s but when done correctly, it can look super modern and chic. To get the modern look, you’ll want to make sure you get body at the root of your hair. This will mean blowdrying the roots upwards. Then blow-dry the middle and front of your hair downwards for a sleek finish. This will also create faux bangs that you can experiment with for the evening.
