Short Haircuts for Women Fall 2014

Why Mom was Right About Short Haircuts

There are so many stunning short haircuts for women right now that you may be considering taking the plunge yourself. Its a shame how many women I see that would look stunning in short hair, opt instead for some dull, boring mid length or longer hairstyle. If it’s fear of styling that’s holding you back, I’m here to help relinquish that! Go for it! With these DIY how to secrets to styling short haircuts, you won’t have to struggle with your new hairstyle. It’s as easy as Badda bing, Badda bang. . . and you’re out the door!

Use The Correct Products

No matter what length haircut you have, when you get a new hairstyle, always check with your hairdresser to see that you have the hair care products you need in order to make your short hair cut look the way you want. With short haircuts, I love to use texturizing products to bring out the layers within the short hair cut. Try a texturizing product like, Enjoy – Texture Spray while your hair is damp, to give subtle texture all over, or use a texture paste like, Artec Textureline Smoothing Serum, on the ends of hair when dry to really bring out the individual pieces and layers in the haircut.

Use the Right Styling Tools

Along with the right hair care products, you’ll want to have the right tools for styling your short haircut. The latest trend in short haircuts is smooth, straightened hairstyles, so a professional flat iron is essential. You’ll also want to invest in a smaller round brush to give hair volume and to bend the ends while blow drying. And if you don’t have a paddle brush already . . . get one! Although, most popular short haircuts are now being worn straight, if you find yourself wanting a curly hair look, make sure you invest in a good quality curling iron like, Hot Tools Professional Ceramic Titanium Professional Curling Iron for around $30. The 1″ inch barrel is a popular size, but if you’re confused as to which size iron is right for you, ask your hairdresser to help you out. If you are purchasing your curling iron at a beauty supply store, an employee should be able to help you select the right barrel size for your short haircut.

Less is More

What I mean is that often less styling is better than more styling. Perfect is not always the way to go when it comes to styling short haircuts. In fact, hair that looks too done often looks old and outdated. A little bit of the bed head look ups the chic factor with short haircuts. So if you find yourself struggling with hair that sticks out a bit here and there and simply won’t cooperate, don’t worry about it, just quit! All you need to do is add a dash more texturizing paste here and there to create a fun, funky look.
