How to Do Short Hairstyles

By Kristle Jones

Short hairstyles are always in style. From the classic bob to the trendier shorter hairstyles, just about anyone can wear short hairstyles. According to, short hair can cut the time and money spent on styling hair, make you look younger, and increase confidence. However, styling short hair can provide a bit of difficulty if you've never done it before. With a few simple steps, along with some hair product and practice, you should be able to style your short hair with ease.

Step 1

Apply a styling cream of your choice to clean, damp hair.

Step 2

Separate hair into several small sections, 1 to 2 inches thick.

Step 3

Style your hair with a round brush, curling the brush under as you blow dry if you would like a bit of curl or bend at the end of your hair. Style your hair with a paddle brush if you would like a straight, short hairstyle.

Step 4

Continue to blow-dry hair in the small sections until you have dried all of your hair.

Step 5

Use a finishing product like hair spray or texturizing gel, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
