If your hair isn't naturally straight, a short bob can be quite a serious styling commitment. After all, to maintain the right length and shape, you may need to blow-dry, flat iron and generally give your hair a lot of extra attention than you might with a longer cut.

The good news is that with the right products and styling techniques, this doesn't have to be too difficult.

Go sleek

To give your hair a smoother, straighter finish than the one it may be naturally inclined toward, a blow-dry is in order. Before you start, apply some Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair and comb it through for even distribution. Using a round brush to guide the hair straight, dry the hair on a medium heat setting. Once dried, you may need to do a couple of touch-ups with a flat iron. After that, part your hair in the middle and finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

Add volume

If your hair is naturally quite fine, you may want to ramp up the volume a little. To do this, scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse through damp hair and blow-dry. When the hair is about 90% dry, flip your head upside down and blast the rest, paying special attention to the roots. This will give your hair extra body and help to lift your whole style. The result will be a fuller look with long-lasting hold. Again, part the hair once dried and finish with Fine Control Hairspray.

Fight frizz

Humidity shows no mercy for anyone and, if you have short hair that relies on a certain density or texture to look good, you can basically guarantee it'll play tricks on you. Fear not, it's a game you can win!

For a quick fix, mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for an instantly smooth, cashmere soft finish. You – 1 Frizz – 0. For a more long-lasting solution, blow-dry or flat iron your hair first with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. This will reduce the risk of flyaways and help keep natural frizz at bay. You – 2 Frizz – 0. Finally, to lock in your style and banish humidity-related frizz once and for all, spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray. You – 3 Frizz – 0. That's three strikes right there...

Happy styling!
