A little accessory really goes a long way when you’re up-styling your short look. We love colourful designs and print headbands as an eye-catching statement. Embrace your natural hair and just add a splash of colour to keep it up and showing off your natural hair and push up its volume.

The short Brazilian hair bob with bangs a simple look we just love. It’s relatively easy to maintain and without the complicated maintenance of a long wig. Remember to be sure to carefully detangle the hair using a wide-toothed comb, to keep the hairs shape and volume.

Editor’s Tip: Fly-aways can get in the way of this hairstyle looking its absolute best. Tame those flyaways with a firm hold hairspray like the TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray. The great thing about this product is that it brushes out easily, so you don’t have to worry about buildup.

Chic and Curly Short Hairstyles

Chic curls always leave an impression – yes, even in short hairstyles! There’s a misconception that curls are difficult to maintain but we don’t think it has to be, you just need to get the feel of your curls and learn to work with them.

 

Editor’s Tip: For more manageable curls, remember to keep your hair hydrated. This includes showing your locks a lot of TLC, so use gentle, nourishing products. We love the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment Mask for curly hair as it is packed with Nutri-oils that penetrate the hair, feeding it from within. And don’t forget to deep condition your hair once a week for the ultimate healthy hair!
