Tired of short hair? Our top-6 instant fixes


 
Whether you’re growing out a bob or you love your short locks, sometimes having short hair can feel like a drag. There’s no need to be jealous of your friends’ longer tresses, though – cropped cuts take a LOT less work and can be just as fun! With these tricks, you’ll be armed with cute cut confidence to spare.
 
Accessorize. When Emma Watson went for a dramatic pixie cut, she always upped her glam factor with jeweled headbands, dangly earrings and statement-making necklaces. Headbands, bows and jewelry show off your girly side, without the effort of styling your hair.
 
Clip in some extensions. This may sound scary if you’ve never worn extensions before, but the gals at the beauty store will help you find a shade and thickness that works with your actual hair. Clips give you the option of quick color or a fun feather, and are much less damaging than permanent ones. Snip ‘em to your hair length, and change them up throughout the week!
 
Try a dramatic side part. This is especially great with pixie cuts, but can work with bobs or lobs (that’s a long bob), too. If you normally part in the middle, switch it up! If you already side part your hair, try a deeper part or switch to the other side for an instant new ‘do. Extra credit? Go for the still-cool zig-zag part.
 
Go for a small braid. This doesn’t work with a pixie cut, but if you’ve got a bob that’s at least ear-length it’s a great way to look pretty, fast. Create a couple tiny ones throughout your hair, or grab a two-inch section in front and weave away, girlies!
 
Try bangs. If your hair is short enough, you may be able to fake blunt or side bangs without any cutting. If not, it’s still a great idea to see how you look with bangs while your hair is short – that way, if you don’t like them, you’ll spend less time growing them out.
 

Do the wave. Shower at night, and twist a 2-inch section of wet hair around itself until it forms a small coil. Pin to your head with a bobby pin, and repeat with the rest of your tresses. Let dry overnight and in the morning, shake free gorgeous waves! Spritz in a light-hold spray to make it last the whole day.
