Shorter, edgier hair styles have been all the rage the past year or so. There are so many fun and inventive ways that hair experts have found a way to create a unique hair cut leaving ladies with a haircut that’s completely different than anything they’ve rocked in the past. The downside of these shorter type of hair styles is that they can leave you feeling a bit stuck in a styling rut when it comes to actually styling your hair. We decided to share some of our ideas on styling bowl cuts, lobs and bobs to give you a dose of inspiration if you’ve been rocking this type of haircut, or been thinking about it.
Mix Up the Texture of Your Hair
One of our favorite ways to really switch things up with these types of haircuts is to mix up the texture you do for your hair. Meaning…try out a stick straight style a few days then switch things up to textured waves the next. It’s a great way to feel like you have a lot of variety with your hairstyle (because you do!), but also still really show off your fun haircut. To really make the most of the different textures you’ll want to make sure you use the hair care products accordingly – so if you want waves, looking for texturizing products, if you want straight hair look for products that really emphasize straight hair. In addition to mixing up the different texture of your haircut another fun way to make it feel like it’s different is to change up the way you part your hair. It may seem like a little thing, but it can create a totally different look at feel to your hair style.
Add a Braid
Another hair style that so many ladies with shorter hair tend to be afraid to rock, but it’s such a fun and easy way to change up the way you style your hair when you have a shorter length. One of the best things about braids is that you can wear them in so many different ways. Our favorite ways for shorter haircut ladies to rock them is a braid near the hairline in front and/or a braid created in the middle of the top of the head that leads into a half updo/top knot type of style.
Half Up Style
Another one of our favorite ways to style these types of haircuts is to work with a half up hair style. This isn’t just a hair style that’s reserved for those with long hair. So often ladies with shorter hair feel like they can’t wear their hair back but with a half up hair style it allows you to get the feel of an updo (or half way, at least) and mix up your hair styles a bit. Use bobby pins to secure the hair and play around with how you pull your hair back. Creating little braids or twists to pull pieces of hair towards the back of your head is a great way to create the look in so many different ways.
