    • Use the correct products to style your short hair cut. No matter what length hair you have, when you get a new hairstyle, always check with your hairdresser to see that you have the hair care products you need in order to make your short hair cut look the way you want. With short hairstyles, I love to use texturizing products to bring out the layers within the short hair cut. Try a texturizing product like, Enjoy – Texture Spray , while hair is damp to give subtle texture all over, or use a texture paste like, Artec Textureline Smoothing Serum, on the ends of hair when dry to really bring out the individual pieces and layers in the hairstyle.

    • Use the right tools. Along with the right hair care products, you’ll want to have the right tools for styling your short hair cut. The latest trend in short hair cuts are smooth, straightened hairstyles, so a professional flat iron is essential. You’ll also want to invest in a smaller round brush to give hair volume and to bend the ends while blow drying. And if you don’t have a paddle brush already . . . get one! Although, most popular short hair cuts are now being worn straight, if you find yourself wanting a curly hair look, make sure you invest in a good quality curling iron like, Hot Tools Professional Ceramic Titanium Professional Curling Iron for around $30. The 1″ inch barrel is a popular size, but if you’re confused as to which size iron is right for you, ask your hairdresser to help you out. If you are purchasing your curling iron at a beauty supply store, an employee should be able to help you select the right barrel size for your short hair cut.

    • Less is More! What I mean is that often less styling is better than more styling. Perfect is not always the way to go when it comes to styling short hair cuts. In fact, hair that looks too done often looks old and outdated. A little bit of the bed head look ups the chic factor with short hair cuts. So if you find yourself struggling with hair that sticks out a bit here and there and simply won’t cooperate, don’t worry about it, just quit! All you need to do is add a dash more texturizing paste here and there to create a fun, funky look.

    Short hair cuts can be so much fun when you know how to change them up a bit. With these secrets, you can head into the salon with confidence knowing that you’ll be able to style your short hair cut with ease. Don’t forget while you are in the chair, to ask your hairdresser to give you a lesson or two on a new and unique way to style your new ‘do!
