Shortcuts for Short Cuts
From pixies and shags to bobs and pageboys, short hair is a breath of fresh (h)air. Keep your cropped locks looking their best with these time- (and tress-) saving tips.
Find What Flatters You
Not all hair textures are suited for all hairstyles and cuts. For example, if you have super-fine hair, you might fare best with a pixie to create the illusion of thicker hair; if you have a slight wave to your hair, one-length cuts may work better since wavy hair tends to hang a bit looser and longer (compared to curly hair, which coils up). To find the best short style for your tress texture, visit your local PM salon or school.
Get a Grip
Sometimes, short hair slips out of bobby pins more easily than longer hair does. To keep your strands in place, spritz the inside of bobby pins with dry shampoo or finishing spray to gain a little more grip.
