Whether it’s the quarantine that has made you go chop-chop or just the desire to try something new… short hair is cool either way. They are fun and barely require any upkeep. Agree? But let’s be honest — as with any hair length, it does get a little boring sporting the same look over an extended period of time. But worry not ladies, we’re going to share some hair styling tips you can try to switch up your short hair look.
Add a little lift

Hoping to rock the androgynous pixie this season instead of brushing them down? Add a little lift in the front. What we call it a partial mohawk. Any stronghold hairspray will help you achieve this edgy look in minutes!

If you already have a textured short cut, add some extra body to it by taking the bead- head route. First, apply some heat protectant spray to your mane and blow-dry till it’s semi-dry. Then, take a volumizing cream and scrunch it up and leave the hair to air dry.

Change the parting

Is your hair falling flat? Try switching your hair parting; it can do wonders for your look. A deep side parting will make your hair look voluminous and fuller. Spritz some hair spray to ensure your hair stays in place all day long.
Add waves from mid-lengths to tips

Waves can be intimidating for short-haired girls as they fear of overdoing them and ruining the balance. Instead of going full glam, add some loose waves to your tresses from mid-lengths to the tip. Rock your natural texture at the roots and make sure your hair is well hydrated for a bouncy and healthy finish.
Add some colour

Colour treatments like chic highlights or the ‘shatush’ method (where you use several different shades of one colour) can add volume to your hair other than styling tools. They add dimension to your mane and it look vibrant and fresh.
