Women everywhere are trading in their longer locks for shorter and edgier alternatives. This fall favorite trend will make styling your hair a breeze and cut down on your shower time. Less hair equals less time spent washing and conditioning your strands, and that means you can leave the arm workout you associate with shampooing elbow-length hair at the gym. Short hair for fall is definitively in and as far as we can tell, there are three major ways to style this look. Straight, wavy or curly—however you wear your short hair for fall, enjoy the still-radical feeling of tresses that don’t reach your shoulders:
How to Style Your Short Hair for Fall
Wear it straight.
Grab your hair straightener and spend the requisite five minutes needed to straighten your shoulder-brushing locks. Be sure to protect your hair with Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist before you straighten to ensure you don’t do damage to your strands. Wear your cropped style short, straight and sleek for maximum edginess.
Wear it wavy.
Alternatively, you can use your hair straightener to create flat iron waves for a more textured and laid-back look. Finish off the style with a mist of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 to add even more texture and a slight hold to your style.
Wear it curly.
Amp up the volume on your short style by wearing your curls natural if you’ve been blessed with a head of ringlets or by creating your own. Use a 1-inch curling iron to imitate the size and shape of real curls and set your style with Bed Head by TIGI Flexi Head Strong Flexible Hold Hairspray. This hairspray helps lock your look in place without making your hair look crunchy and too ‘done.’
