Want to curl your short hair but don't know how? These instructions will help!

Say what you may about loving long hair but you also have to admit, having short hair for a change can be ah-mazing! It takes such a huge load off your head, it's super low-maintenance and it's also super in trend right now. But the one problem with having really short hair is that you don't have a lot of styling options left. One easy way to opt for a change is to change the texture - so if you have straight hair you can try and style it into curls and vice versa. But how exactly do you style such short hair? Here are some tips that will help.

Wash your hair

The very first thing you need to do is to wash and shampoo your hair to give it that bounce and lustre. Don't use any other products on it or it might end up looking flat. Once washed, make sure to let it dry naturally to avoid frizz as much as possible. Honestly, it would be best if you wash your hair a day prior to when you're styling it. Gives you a good texture.

Spray and clip!

The next step if to opt for heat protectant! Don't want that beautiful hair of yours to get damaged, do you? So spritz on some heat protecting spray and then carefully make sections in your hair and start clipping them too. This will make it a lot easier for you to style your hair without any hassles.

Curl and hold

Now, you need to take as small a section as possible (gives you better-defined curls) and wrap it gently around the curling iron. Make sure to hold the strand there for at least 5-10 seconds and then let it loose. Don't touch that section of your hair, it might be really hot.


05/6Curl back to front

Curl back to front

You have to start backwards when you want to curl your hair so start by taking each section one-by-one from behind and curl them. Keep doing this as you move from back to front. And then make sure that you curl the front section of your hair the last.

Now that you have a head full of some gorgeous curls, you're going to have to give them a few minutes to cool down. Once that's done, gently run your fingers through the curls to loosen them up a little and give yourself a more natural look. And voila! Your curled hairstyle is ready!
