4 Short Hair Styling Tips

From pixie cuts to angled bobs, short haircuts offer versatility, lower maintenance, and a sleek, stylish look. However, to keep your short hair looking fresh, it’s important to follow some basic best practices.

At Accolades Salon Spa, our experienced team specializes in a wide variety of haircuts and styles, including short hair. Here are four short hair styling tips that we recommend:

  • Avoid using too much product. Short hair tends to get weighed down more easily than longer hair. Therefore, it’s essential to be selective about using the best products for your hair type. For example, if you have fine hair, use a small amount of volumizing product to provide lift at the roots. If you have thicker or curly hair, it is particularly important to avoid frizz and puffiness when you have a short style, so opt for smoothing or frizz-fighting products. No matter which products you choose for your unique hair type, just be sure to use only as much as you need in order to achieve your ideal style.
  • Get creative with different accessories. Items such as headbands, barrettes, bobby pins, and beanie hats on chilly days offer fun ways to transform a short hair style from simple to flashy.
  • Keep up with regular trims. When short hair starts growing out, it can be harder to hide an unkempt look than it is with longer hair. Keep your style looking chic by staying on schedule for regular hair trims.
  • Avoid excessive blow drying and over-styling. To maintain a sense of movement and keep your short style looking fresh and natural, it is best to blow dry your hair to only about 50 percent dry and avoid trying to style it to perfection—which could result in an old-fashioned, overdone appearance. Short hair tends to look best when handled with a light touch.
