How to add texture to short hair: 3 must-try methods

/ 08.04.2015

One of the best ways to switch up a short haircut is by adding texture, especially seeing as complicated braids and fancy chignons aren't exactly easy options to call on. From pixies to long bobs, shorter cuts look gorgeous with a textured finish, be it piecey, wavy or messy. Check out the styling tips below to find out how to texturize short hair for flawless results!

Wavy bobs have been trending for a while now, and we love how summery the look is (even when the sun isn't shining)! To master the look, spritz damp hair with a texturizing product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, scrunch it evenly throughout, then leave the hair to air dry most of the way. When it's only a tiny bit damp, twist individual pieces and blow-dry them completely on a medium heat. Once dried, shake your fingers through your hair and finish with hairspray.

With a smokin' hot downtown feel, piecey hair looks so effortlessly cool, and it's perfect for a second day mane! Start by spritzing the roots with dry shampoo to absorb excess oil and create a matte finish. Then, warm a flexible hold product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands and scrunch it through the ends. Twist and tousle individual pieces, then finger-comb your tresses to complete the look.



Messy textures are oh so easy to create with really short short haircuts like undercuts and pixies. All you need to do is work some flexible hold gum through the longest sections, scrunch like crazy, then shape with your hands to finish. For a more natural finish, apply a texturizing spray, then rough dry your hair instead.
