Most of you guys know that I’ve kept my hair long throughout the years. It wasn’t until last year that I took the plunge and chopped it off – then, I went even shorter. This is probably the best I’ve felt about my hair in years. I think many of us tend to get attached to long hair because short hair seems so restrictive. There’s only so much you can do, right? Well, not exactly. Today, I’m going to be breaking down 3 short hairstyles that I create all the time at home.

To achieve effortlessly tousled waves, take a 1 inch curling wand and wrap 1 inch sections of your hair around it. Take extra care to leave the last inch of your tresses untouched. That’s what’s going to give it that effortless feel. You can also rotate the direction of your curls to make it look less intentional. After you’ve gone through all sections of your hair, mist a texturizing spray through it and shake it up. I love how it looks so piecey and gritty.
Sleek & Straight
Sleek, blown out hair is also flattering. I have been creating this look quite a bit lately, and it’s so easy to do. I always start by blow drying my hair with a round brush so that it gives my hair maximum volume. I’ll then section off my hair into 3-4 parts and straighten it with a flat iron to smooth out flyaways and make it look extra straight. From here, you can leave it as is, but you could also tie up the top half of it. I sometimes do this when I want to keep my hair out of my face.
Pulled Back & Tucked
The last way I like to style my hair is pulling it back or tucking it into my clothes. Since the weather is still cold out right now, I like to take advantage of tucking my hair into turtlenecks or higher necklines. The whole point of the look is to appear relaxed and undone, so use bobby pins if you need to hold your hair in place. But also pull out a few strands to frame your face. Also, pull out your hair a bit from the crown to add some volume.
