How to Style Short Hair!

Hi guys! Today I am sharing how I curl my short hair. I am loving my hair short and finally have a way to style it that I like. I can do this in 5 minutes if i’m in a rush and I love the beachy look. I start off by doing these roll up curls throughout my entire head. I also like to use this dry shampoo (even if my hair is clean) to give it some texture so the curls stay better! This is the curling iron I use, it’s a 1 1/4 inch by HotTools!

This is what it looks like when I finish the wrap around curls, as you can see they aren’t that cute if you leave them like that so I like to take a few pieces on the top section and do some wrap around curls so that the top section looks nicer!

Once I finish with the wrap around curls, I like to add this beach spray to add even more texture. Also if you want to save a little bit of time by not doing the roll up curls on the top section so you don’t have to curl them twice, you can do that but I find that it’s just faster for me to do the whole thing and not worry about sectioning anything off!

Then I finish off with some hairspray! The Big Sexy Hair one is my favorite.

I like my curls to be a little more beachy looking so I leave out the bottom inch or two when I am curling pieces so that it looks a little more natural!

That’s it! This is so fast and easy once you have done it a few times. I love curling my hair this way since it’s so quick and turns out so cute! Let me know if you guys try these curls out! A lot of people ask how I dye my hair so I asked my mom what exactly she does since she colors my hair so here is exactly what she said:

“I use Redken bleach with 20 volume H2O2 and weave full head thin pieces but very heavy.  Process under dryer until almost pale yellow/white.  (Do not over process) Rinse and shampoo, towel dry well.  Apply Paul Mitchell Toner HLA and 5 volume H202 to scalp and then mush through rest of hair processing for 5-10 minutes until warmth of hair looks toned. Rinse and condition.”

I don’t really recommend dyeing your hair like this at home since it can end up looking really orange if you do it yourself, so if you have the money to go get it done I recommend doing that! I’m currently writing this post from my hotel room in Hawaii, I am on a girls trip with some of my YouTube friends and we are having the best time already and we just got here! I also still have more photos to post from the Maldives so those are coming soon :)

    I have naturally curly hair and it’s really frizzy and puffy. Should i straighten my hair before doing these curls or just blow it out straight?

    Ahh I love your hair so much! When your mom cuts your hair, how does she cut it? Do you have layers or is it a blunt cut?? Curious because I love the way your hair looks and want to get mine cut the same type of way :)

    I looove the color of your hair!! My hair is also difficult to curl and it’s such a drag that my curls fall out within 30 minutes. I’m definitely buying all these products to test this out!! Thank you so much for the advice!! <3
