Short hair is usually referred to as any haircut with short length. It can be just above the shoulders, at the chin level, or above the ears. Short hairstyles look good on oval faces, but they are not limited to this shape of a face.

Contrary to the belief that styling short hair is time-consuming and limiting, short-haired girls have various styles they can pull off in less than 10 minutes without stress. These styles range from pixie cut to playful curls or layered bobs.

Although some individuals feel girls with round faces should not go for short hairstyles. The reason is best known to them! Well, anyone with short hair, either with a round face, oblong or oval face, can try any of the styles listed below. Hairstyling can be a hobby, especially for people who create additional time for their hair treatment, while to some people, it is an unpleasant task.

Nine ways to style your short hair

1. Low bun

This style can be achieved by spritz spraying or gelling your hair and then brushing it to the back to form a low pony. Using a ribbon or band, twist the pony into a bun, after which you can use pins to keep the bun in place. This hairstyle is simple and can be completed in less than 10 minutes. However, buns for short hair look better when they are accessorized. You can use a floral accessory to beautify the hair.

2. Styling with Barrettes

If you want to prevent short hair strands from falling over your face, then you should consider styling your hair with barrettes. You don’t have to worry about looking like a kid going back to school as there are so many trendy and mature ways of using hair barrettes. You can decide to either brush the hair to the side or back and then use the barrettes to lock the curls or strands.

3. Natural updo

For short hair with natural curls, a nice and simple updo can give you that amazing look. One can achieve this style in few minutes. You have to pack all your hair up towards the crown of your head and then use pins to keep them in place. To have a better look, you can leave few strands to fall over your face.

4. Pixie hairstyle

One of the recommended hairstyles for round faces is the pixie cut. This hairstyle comes in different forms. Your pixie cut can either be cropped/retro, curled, or clippered. All these styles are suitable for round faces. To make your face look slimmer, go for the clippered pixie. Those who need a more oval face instead of a round one would prefer the curled pixie. However, the retro pixie is suitable for ladies with angular jawlines who want to give their faces a soft look.

5. Double Dutch braids

Who said Dutch braids are only suitable for long hairs? You can also do Dutch braids on short hair. However, double Dutch braids would look better on short hair. You can decide to leave a little hair behind to form a pigtail or ponytail, or you can decide to join the two braids together to form a small bun at the back.

However, you are at liberty to style your hair so you can change your style and be more attractive.

6. Styling with headbands

If you have a pixie haircut and want to give it a new look, you can consider using jeweled headbands. One can use these headbands on pixie hairstyles as well as other short hairstyles. The headbands are not just there to beautify the hair, but they also help keep the hair flat and smooth.

7. Making a pompadour

Making this hairstyle on short hair can be difficult, but the simpler way of achieving this is by twisting or backcombing a section of your front hair to give it volume and then, pushing it up, using pins to keep it in place.

8. Braided headband

To keep your hair away from your face, you can either use a jeweled headband or braid your hair to make a headband. This style is very easy to make, and you can do it at home yourself. Mothers can easily do this for their children.

9. Top Knot

This style is no longer just for long hairs, as short-haired girls can rock it even better. In less than 10 minutes, you should be done with this and ready to go. All you have to do is pull your hair to the crown of your head, tie the hair to form a bun, allowing few strands to dangle.
