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
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
