Anytime you change your look, we believe it’s always good to know what it entails before making the switch!
Being prepared eliminates a lot of unnecessary anxiety, and helps you to embrace and enjoy your new look a lot more.
Here are some tips that may help you before you go under the scissors for your cute new look:
1. You may need to cut your hair more often
Many often opt for short hair because of the ease of washing, drying, and the fun ways you can style it.
However, short hair does require more upkeep in terms of visits to the salon – every 6-8 weeks is ideal, while 10 weeks is the maximum, especially if your look is a short pixie that is a little more high maintenance.
It’s important to factor that into your budget and your lifestyle when making a decision about the type of hairstyle you want.
2. You’ll need to let your hair dry completely before going to bed
Bed head on short hair rarely results in a satisfying look in the mornings. Short hair can become bent in weird angles and become messy or flattened when you sleep on it before it has fully dried.
Unlike long hair, that can’t be camouflaged by tying your hair into a messy bun.
To avoid bad hair days, allow your hair to dry completely before going to bed. Of course, you can always rescue it by spraying some water and blowdrying it again, but who has time for that in the mornings?
3. You may need to change your hair drying routine
Are you used to blow drying your hair immediately after a shower?
Other than allowing your hair to dry completely before bed, it’s actually best to allow your hair to air dry at least 50% before using a hairdryer.
This helps prevent your hair from drying out and minimizes the chances of heat damage. (To really understand the importance of a good blow-dry, head on over to our recent post.)
4. Invest in a small round brush
Small round brushes will be your best friend when drying short hair.
Its teeth are fine enough to grab even the shortest strands, allowing you to straighten your hair with ease while blow drying. You can also use it to create wavy or curly looks.
5. Despite popular belief, short hair is actually suitable for all face shapes
Yup, even if you have a round face, or any other face shape someone told you wasn’t suitable for short hair. Our stylists will be able to customize a style that will go perfectly with not only your face shape, but your hair texture and head shape too (none of us have perfectly rounded and symmetrical heads!).
