Hair accessories are one of the quickest and easiest ways to add glamour or whimsy to your short hairstyle. Sweep back longer sections of hair and pin them to the side of your head with rhinestone or pearl studded barrettes or pins. These accessories can add a touch of sophistication in no time at all. For a bit of whimsy, try barrettes in fun colors or designs or add a playful headband. Tying a scarf around your head like a headband can also add a bit of bohemian flair, while doing the same with a bandana can give you a fun and sporty look.
Slick it Back
It’s the ultimate summer look, short and slicked-back hair. Pair the look with sunglasses, and you are officially too cool for school and look like you are perpetually on vacation. For a wet look use a gel or water or oil-based pomade or styling cream. These products add a sheer sheen to the style. For a matte look, opt for a clay-based pomade.
Do the Twist
For a quick and easy change to your routine, take a small section of hair from the side of your head and twist it. Make another twist on the opposite side of your head. Bring the twists together at the back of your head and secure them with a pin, barrette, or small hair tie. In five minutes, you have a half up, half down elegant twist.
Line Them Up
Don’t have a lot of time or money? Sweep a section of hair from the front of your head, and secure it along the side of your head with a row of bobby pins.
