Styling Shorter Hair

So, I finally cut my hair and went for a good ol' blunt bob. I love how low maintenance shorter hair is... less washing, less time to dry, less time to style, less time for everything basically!

Here is how I usually style my hair and what I use.

Post-shower, I brush all my hair out with my brush. I am particularly enjoying using a Tangle Teezer. I recently bought this on practically every bloggers recommendation and I definitely see the hype. How is it that this plastic, overpriced brush is pain-free and glides through even the knottiest of hair?!

For a boost of volume, I love a bit of mousse. I have been using the Schwarzkopf Supersoft Fixing Mousse and it seems to do the job. It doesn’t leave a sticky feeling, doesn’t smell weird and actually gives some volume. A dollop of this throughout my hair before letting it air dry is all I need.

Some days, instead of the mousse I add a few spritzes of a leave in conditioner for a more sleek finish. I had the Andrew Barton S.O.S. HELP ME! Leave-In Conditioner in my stash (I believe they do not sell it anymore) and it really nourishes my dry hair.

I like to wave my hair using a straightener. I always get the best results when I do this as the waves last for days. As my hair is short, it is easier to curl with straighteners because curlers can sometimes have too big of a barrel.

To give that messy, piece-y look, I spray in some texturising spray. The one I currently use is the V05 Give Me Texture Dry Texturising Spray. This is probably my favourite product for texture. It is so quick and easy and just requires a bit of scrunching into the hair for the perfect ‘bed head’ vibe.

On those days where it almost hair washing night and I need to give my roots a bit of a lift, the Batiste Dry Shampoo comes to the rescue. Everyone loves a bit of dry shampoo – especially when you really can’t be bothered to wash your hair (even though mine literally takes 5 minutes to wash – lazy girl problems, ha!).

And those are my current hair styling essentials! What are yours?
