As with all lengths, a short hairstyle requires certain tricks and techniques to keep it looking just the way you want it. Below, you'll find five easy hacks to make maintaining and styling your short cut as easy as possible.
1. Get regular trims
On average, hair grows at a rate of half an inch per month, something which is way more noticeable with a short cut than a long or medium-length style, so getting regular trims is important to maintain shape and movement.
2. Invest in a flat iron
If you don't already have one, or yours could do with an update, invest in a decent flat iron. They're so handy for taming any stubborn sections of hair, getting your bangs just right, and generally smoothing the overall texture of a short style. Just make sure you spritz your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray before styling to protect against heat damage!
3. Embrace accessories
Sometimes, a bad hair day can't be beaten and you simply have to roll with it. When this happens to you, a barrette, headband or even just a whole bunch of bobby pins will come in really handy!
4. Don't use too much product
When styling, start with a small amount of product and add more as needed until you know exactly how much your hair needs. With Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty, there's no need to rush as it won't set hard, so take your time figuring it out.
5. Spritz a stubborn style with water
If your hair refuses to behave the way you want it to, spritz some water on the problem area and start over to reset your strands.
