1. French Twist Braid

We love how hairstyles for short hair are now all about braiding. Then the French twist braid is for you because it’s not really a braid at all! You just need to pick up two sections of hair and twist to be able to do this braid. After each twist add a small amount of hair to the closest section to your hairline and twist again. When you’ve reached your ear simply secure with a bobby pin and set your style by using some of the Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray.

2. Deep Side Part and Loose Curls

One simple way to make a huge impact with your look is to switch up your part. Going from a center part or a just off center part to a deep side parting will totally up your weekend hairstyle game. To get this look, curl the top part of your hair with a curling wand as you work your way around your head, creating gorgeous loose waves.

3. Knot Braid

For a super casual, messy on purpose look, try out a knot braid. To get this hairstyle for short hair to actually stick, you’ll need to prep your hair with a little extra texture. Use just enough Bed Head By TIGI Joyride Texturizing Balm to add a bit more texture to your hair. Then choose a section of hair and split it in two. Tie the sections of your hair like you would a regular knot, then add a small amount of hair to each section. Knot it one more time and secure in place with a bobby pin or two.

4. Mega Volume

For quick volume that will last all day we recommend teasing your hair. Grab your teasing comb and some hairspray and you’ll be set to go in minutes. Simply section off the top of your hair that will not be teased to make things a little easier. Lightly tease the rest of your hair so it shows off more volume. Set down the top section of your hair and lightly brush it out so your hair meshes well together. Set your style with some of the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Hairspray, which can help your volume last all day.

5. Super Sleek

If you’ve got a couple extra minutes on hand, or you are starting off with freshly washed (and still wet) hair, then you can get a super sleek style. On damp hair work one pump of the Nexxus Humectress Encapsulate Serum through out the middle to ends of your hair. This serum works to banish frizz and leaves you with extra shiny hair. Blow-dry your hair with a round brush to get a smooth style, or use a flat iron to straighten your hair out.

6. Curtain Bangs

If you’ve got bangs you can switch up your look by making them curtain bangs. This is a two second style, all you need to do is part your bangs down the center. Comb each section so that it will sit to it’s own side, and you are good to go.
