Forget the round brush and rollers! Many short haircuts can be styled using nothing but your hands! A flat paddle brush works well for sleek short styles with hair clinging to the scalp. If you want to create roundness in shape like a flip or height on top, use the round brush only toward the very end of your blow drying process.
Great products are your best friend when you have short hair. I like to cocktail products for clients so you get a combination of hold, shine, and flexibility. For hold- you want a gel or a mousse. For shine- you can use any kind of argan oil or shine serum. For flexibility- I use a styling cream or soft waxy pomade. Work this cocktail into your hair when its wet and then blow-dry in. You will see how much shape your hair takes. Don’t use more than a dime-size of each product in your mixture. Below are some examples of styles you can achieve with these instructions.
