Short hair is perfect for the summer and there are so many cute styles to try. Just because your curls aren't shoulder length or longer does not mean you can't have fun too. From finger coils to mini twists, short hair can do much more than a TWA (teeny weeny afro). Here are 5 heat-free styles for you to try this summer.
#1 Space Buns
Travel back down memory lane to when you were a little girl with this cute and trendy style that may be worn with extensions to give your two buns extra volume. You can also add gold hair clips to spice things up. Check out this video to see how you can achieve this look!
#2 Mini Twists
Mini Twists are a perfect 2-n-1 hairstyle. You can style your twists for a week with different accessories or even change up the hairstyle by pinning some back on the side. Then for the second week (or when you are ready), you can take the mini twists out and have a bomb twist out! This style can be achieved by parting your hair into small sections and two-strand twisting your hair using your favorite moisturizer and styling cream/gel.
#3 Bantu Knots
Bantu Knots are an entire fashion statement unto themselves. This style can be worn as is or taken out to rock those beautiful, fluffy curls. If you’re wondering how to achieve this bold, but yet fashionable style, watch this video!
#4 Curly Wash & Go
You can never go wrong with wearing your hair in its natural state. It is the best way to protect your hair from any heat damage and it also embraces your natural tresses. This style is very easy to achieve in just four steps.
Step 1: Wash your hair as normal.
Step 2: Apply a leave-in conditioner of your choice.
Step 3: With either a styling gel or cream, style your hair by combing, brushing, or using your fingers to distribute the product.
Step 4: Let it air dry or dry with a diffuser.
If you want a more volumized look, take your Kurls Plus Pick to lift and volumize your curls.
#5 Finger Coils
Finger Coils are a great hairstyle that can last up to two weeks! As the days go by, this style keeps getting bigger and better. Feel free to add a side part to give this style more structure. Check out this video, on how you too can execute this look at home.
Don't forget you can accessorize each of these styles with headbands, headscarves, scrunchies, and clips. Try using one of these hairstyles the next time your hair needs a break!
