Me and my hair have always been on some kind of love hate relationship. I used to be OBSESSED with hair extensions and despised my natural hair! But around 3 years ago now, I decided to ditch the hair extensions and embrace my natural locks and give them a bit of TLC.
It turns out I was bang on time because short hair made a come back and fast forward to now blunt bobs are the in craze!
I love a blunt cut bob, it’s so easy to maintain & because of the blunt cut it leaves your hair always looking stylish and on trend!
But I hear many people always say they struggle to style short hair, because they feel limited on what they can do! Truth is, short hair is just as styleable (I’m aware that’s probably not a word) as long hair is!
So I’m gonna share with you my simple, basic but stylish go 2 hair styles! That ANY one can do and on the quick! (These styles also suit and look great on longer hair too)
The Mohawk braid is one of my FAVOURITE hair styles! The great thing about this style, is that you can then style the rest of your hair however you want….from loosely wanded hair as above for the boho beachy vibe, to poker straight or in a bun/ponytail, as below!
ALL AROUND THE WORLD BRAID
This braided style is also another fav of mine! It’s so trendy and draws in so many compliments! It is a perfect style for the summer time, festivals and is great if you want to keep your hair out of your face! This hair style also contributes nicely to your outfit!
HALF UP TOP KNOT/PONY
This style I pretty much use everyday! I call it my lazy hair style, because it literally takes minutes to do! I’m trying to grow out my sides (which are shorter than my length – it’s the Bain of my life) so pulling it back, usually stops me from over styling it and damaging it! This style goes great with either wanded, curled or straight hair so it’s perfect for all! The half up top knot has been on trend for ages now & it really is a easy, stylish and quick hair style!
Now this one isn’t a “hairstyle” per-say but more using the use of accessories! The knot headbands have quickly become my absolute go 2. They are perfect to add a bit of style without actually having to style your hair! They also jazz up any outfit so it’s a double bubble.
I usually wear them with my hair pulled back into a simple low bun/ponytail or with my hair down.
Accessorising your hair really helps in the growing out stage by hiding any mismatch lengths around your face & again stops you from over styling your hair. You can get these headbands and various others from so many shops. I recommend Primark for the knot headbands at only £2 each & they have various colours & styles!
I love straight blunt bobs but for me personally I am obsessed with a beach waved bob! It adds style & texture and makes your hair appear a lot thicker too! Beach waves last me a few days as-well so it’s a super easy style that lasts. Then sometimes if I want to jazz it up a notch’ I will just add a simple french side braid.
None of these styles are level hard, they are so simple and easy to create and have stopped me from getting bored of my cut! They’ve also been great in helping my hair grow out and stay healthy.
I will post a few more in-depth styles so keep an eye out! Also I will be uploading tutorials on my YouTube Channel of each style showed above starting from this week! So if you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel yet then you can subscribe here!
