Simple Short Curly Hair

by dietingfashions on November 9, 2011

“The grass is always greener on the other side.”

I always wanted curly hair. But you always want something you can’t have. That is until I found out I can curl my hair with a flat iron. It takes some time to curl my hair though. Okay, 15 minutes to curl. It’s not that bad but I always want to be low maintenance. With kids running around, I’m hyper alert that something BAD is going to happen. (Case in point – My 1 year old decided to spray Colorox into her mouth.)

1″ Flat Iron
1 Hair clip to section hair
1 Styling spray for afterwards

I like to curl 1 day of unwashed hair. I clipped my hair up just leaving the bottom third of my hair down to begin curling. Once bottom third is done, I worked through the mid portion and then finally to the crown. Spritz some Styling spray for shine and to hold the curls.

I used Bumble and Bumble Shine On (and On) Finishing Spray. I like it because it adds shine to my hair and it works similar to hairspray by holding the curls in place without the build up of hairspray.

This is how the curls look at the end of the day.

This is how the curls looked the morning after. I also added Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray to my hair to add a more beachy look.

Mid-day the curls were all right but not as tight as they were. I decided to pull my hair half up for a change up. By pulling the half the curls up at the crown, this action created a fuller look to the top of my hair.

Any short hair styles you can recommend to me?

Wow I have to try this surf spray business- I’m a huge fan of B&B! I have fine, curly/wavy, frizzy Russian Jew hair, so I am actually always on the hunt for ultra-straightening products (grass is always greener, isn’t it? 😉 ) but every once in a while it’s nice to go curly. Your hair looks fabulous, esp in the last pic! For thick, short, straight hair, your best bet is adding shape and texture – try half up/half down, maybe a bump-it, or a half French braid. You could also add root volumizer to the surf spray routine and do a messy French twist for a fun updo!

LOL, I just bought a bump-it on ebay like 4 days ago. Just waiting for it to arrive. I want to definitely give my hair more volume on the top. I’m going to try an Emma Stone look I saw.
