Short haircuts are still totally on trend. I also cut my hair almost two years ago and went home from the hairdresser with 40 cm less.

Do I regret that in the meantime? Absolutely not. I liked the long hair, but somehow it was too boring for me. Because even if you think that you can do much more with long hair and the choice of hairstyles is more diverse, it looks different since I’m wearing my hair either open or in a braid.

Since I have short or shorter hair, I try out much more, and from two different hairstyles, it became a variety of hairstyles for short hair. I have noticed above all: short hair can make many of the hairstyles that you know from long hair, too. However, they are much easier to implement. I want to show you three examples of exactly such hairstyles in today’s post and give you hair styling ideas for the holidays.

What to keep in mind when styling short hair

Short hairstyles are incredibly diverse. But if you want to style short hair, you need the right tools and supplies. Like all other haircuts, the most varied styling ideas can be implemented with a curling iron, blow dryer, and straightener. If you need help determining which styling suits you best, you should use MultiStyler like the Dyson AirWrap. Multifunctional styling tools like this can do everything from curls to beach waves to straight hair.

Whether you choose a MultiStyler or styling tools with only one function, you will still need styling and care products for your hair.

Because short hair is generally healthier and less prone to damage, people often forget to use heat protection and other essential care products. However, it is even more important to protect and care the short hair. In general, everything that applies to long haircuts is also valid for short haircuts.

Otherwise, there is little to consider when styling short hair. You can let off steam and try new hairstyles again and again.

Simple hairstyle with a hair band for short hair

The nice thing about short hair is that you don’t always have to spend a lot of time styling it. Especially during the holidays, it can get a bit more hectic as part of the preparations, and if you too need a simple hairstyle for the Christmas holidays that is ready styled in a few minutes, then this one is just right for you.

All you need for this hairstyle is a straightening iron and a hair band. And it’s as simple as this: Heat protection in the hair, straightening the hair and turning it slightly inward, hair oil or other care in the hair, and finally, only the hair band is missing. I recommend using a thick hair band slightly above the ears. Through the wide hair band, the hairstyle looks much nobler and is perfect for the holidays.

The absolute hairstyle trend: hair clips

In addition to a hair band, you can also use hair clips to implement an incredible number of different and super cool hairstyles for short hair. And at the same time, hairstyles with hair clips are still in trend. I love hairstyles with hair clips because they are super practical and especially suitable for the days when the hair no longer looks so fresh.

Whether you wear your hair open or in a braid with hair clips does not matter. I have decided on the variant with open hair, which I have smoothed in advance. I finished the look with seven silver barrettes, which I wore on one side. For this look, it’s best to start with the top barrette and clip the others underneath until you reach the ear. For the last barrette by the ear, you must ensure that it is not too close to the ear; otherwise, it could press and sit uncomfortably.

If you want, even more, you can also wear the barrettes on both sides or go directly with the all-over look. For this, the hair clips get gradually attached to the entire head. However, they don’t have to sit perfectly next to each other. Go wild here at will and see with which hairstyle for short hair you feel most comfortable.

The look with the hair clips not only complements your festive outfit for the Christmas holidays but is also perfect for the party look for New Year’s Eve.

The Wet Hair Look for short hair

The wet hair look is always a real eye-catcher, regardless of the hair length. But especially with short hair, it can be styled quite easily. This hair styling is especially suitable for those who don’t feel like spending a long time in the bathroom. The wet hair look is simple and super quick to implement.

Unlike what you might think, your hair doesn’t have to be wet for this hairstyle. It’s best to blow dry it in advance. I can also recommend the products from Dyson, as they are particularly gentle.

When the hair is dry, you only need a comb or brush, styling gel, and hairspray. When choosing the gel, ensure it does not contain alcohol; otherwise, it will attack and damage the hair.

Spread the gel throughout the hair, comb it back, and then fix the look best once again with hairspray. Finished is the wet hair look for the holidays.

You see, this holiday hairstyle is super easy and quickly implemented. In addition, it is also perfect for the days between hair washes. Greasy hair? No problem, because you won’t see them with the wet hair look.
