Cute Hairstyles For Short hair

Sometimes short hair slips out of bobby pins more easily than longer hair does, so to keep your strands in place, spritz a dry texture spray, like Oribe Dry Texture Spray, on the inside of the bobby pin to give it a little more grip.
2. Braid your hair into a chic crown braid. Pull your hair back into a chic crown braid by first creating a side-part and then Dutch braiding (where you cross the pieces under one another rather than over) your hair diagonally, starting from the left side of the part. Then Dutch braid your hair straight back on the right side of the part, securing both braids in a bun in the back with bobby pins.
3. Keep your pixie cut smooth and sleek all day by crisscrossing two headbands over your hair.

Stubborn short strands are a pain in the ass to keep down. To ensure your pixie stays put, layer your bejeweled headbands for a ***flawless look with the help of this tutorial.
Pin your bangs with one bobby pin, pushing the open end toward the ceiling. Complete the "V" shape by sliding one leg of another bobby pin at a downward angle through the looped end of the first pin. Repeat as many times as you'd like to get the look you want.
5. Keep a cold cream in your bag in case you need to tame your tresses on the go. One like Nivea's Creme in a travel-size tin fits perfectly in any clutch and can be used to fix flyaways or frizz if your hair wigs out when it's humid.
6. Create a faux bang by making a deep side part, sweeping the hair across your forehead, and securing it behind one side of your headband.
7. Not all hair textures are suited for all hairstyles and cuts. For example, if you have super-fine hair, you might fare better with a pixie because it will create the illusion that you have thicker hair, and if you have a slight wave to your hair, layered and one-length cuts may work better, since wavy hair tends to hang a bit looser and longer (compared to curly hair, which coils up).

8. Make your own salt spray with seltzer water and a teaspoon of sea salt to give your short hair beachy texture.
You might have a salt spray that you love, but if you don't or you want to create some texture in a pinch, celebrity stylist Ryan Trygstad recommends mixing together 20 ounces of seltzer water and a teaspoon of sea salt in a spray bottle to make your own ocean spritz at home.
