Chic and effortless hairstyles for short hair

1. The over-part: Here we’re taking inspiration from the comb over, but this is much, much cooler. The trick is to part your hair on the opposite side to it’s natural part, therefore giving it a natural lift. Then, when I do this style I tease the fringe part so it has volume and doesn’t just fall lifeless in front of my face. Some people may need to get the hair dryer out and tease it with heat, otherwise the hair will fall back into it’s natural place.

You will need:

– Rats tail comb

– Strong hold hair spray

– Hair dryer

 

2. The half up top knot: I use this style when I’m running low on time and can’t straighten my hair properly, so I separate the top from the bottom, put the top in a knot, then straighten the bottom. It saves time and looks really boho-chic.

You will need:

– A hair tie

– Hair pins

 

3. The low-bun: Tying your hair up when your hair is short can be a nightmare, especially when you’re used to tying longer hair in a high pony or a trusty top knot. This low-bun not only is much easier, but also looks really elegant, but is adaptable to any style. I wore my hair like this with a simple crop top and a high waisted midi skirt, which looked really sophisticated, but then I’ve also done my hair like this when I wore a camel coloured turtle-neck knit and jeans, which was really casual and comfortable, which was a nice contrast to my hair.

You will need:

– A thin hair tie

– Hair pins (lots of them)

– Rats tail comb

– A really good contour

 

4. The wavy middle part: I personally have a lot of difficulty getting my hair to look wavy; it’s either straight or curly. But I think this look can be pulled off with a bit more effort than the other styles.

You will need:

– Rats tail comb (to part your hair down the middle)

– Hair spray

– Hair straightener (or curler without the clamp)

 

These looks are super easy to replicate and can easily give extra personality to even the simplest outfit.
