Deciding to go platinum requires huge hairstyle commitment, but the brightest blonde is definitely worth the effort. The same goes for getting a short haircut and, funnily enough, the two seems to work beautifully together! To see exactly what we're talking about, check out some of our favorite short platinum street style looks in the gallery above.
Who knows, maybe they'll convince you to try a radical new hairstyle of your own...
Platinum hair care
Bleach is a major stressor for all hair types, so make sure you have a great haircare routine in place. Condition regularly, top up with leave-in products between washes, and make time in your weekly regime for a deep conditioning hair mask if you haven't already.
Cutting back on heat styling will also help to maintain overall hair health, but when you do need to use hot tools on your tresses, apply a thermal protectant like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray first. Section your hair, then apply the protectant for the best coverage.
Short hair maintenance
Apart from choosing a cut based on your hair texture, it's also important to factor in the required maintenance when deciding on a new 'do.
Anything closely cropped like a particularly short pixie or an undercut with buzzed sides will require very regular trims - every 2-4 weeks - to maintain the right shape. Slightly longer cuts like a bob or messy pixie last a little longer between trims, but you should still be paying your stylist a visit every 4-6 weeks, especially if bangs are a factor.
