Short styles: curly vs. Sleek

Just because you've opted for a short haircut doesn't mean you don't have a wealth of options when it comes to styling it! Today we've a classic choice for you short-haired girls: cute and curly or sleek and chic?

Curly short hair

The style: Light-hearted but big in personality, we've never met a girl with short curly hair we didn't like! Messy curls bring femininity to a short haircut, and look great for any event: from a sophisticated evening out to roller-skating in the park...

How to: This style is achievable even if you don't have naturally curly hair. Use a curling mousse like Hollywood Waves Spiral Queen from the Tecni.ART line and apply to damp hair before drying with a diffuser on your hairdryer. Naturally curly girls can use the Dual Stylers Bouncy & Tender styling gel for defined, bouncy curls that don't frizz or fluff.

What the editors say: Remember that tight curls always make your hair look a lot shorter, so bear this in mind when asking your hairdresser for a short cut.

Sleek short hair

The style: blunt bangs and edges are softened with piecey layering and honey tips for an edgy and contemporary urban look.

How to: For this look, you want texture and a matt finish. How? By applying a texturizing paste like the Web sculpting paste from Tecni.ART (after your hair straighteners) onto the end sections of the hair. Give your locks a quick blow dry afterwards in a downward direction, and you're ready to go.

What the editors say: To make this our go-to festival look, we're thinking of updating the golden ends with a semi-permanent personalised #colorfulhair effect... maybe pastel pink? Or bright blue? What do you think? If you're unsure – your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist is there to help!
