How to Style Short Hair in Sexy Waves
-Hey, it's Jeannine from beautysweetspot.com. And today, I'm gonna show you how to wear your short hair in a wavy style. Wavy styles are my favorite 'cause they add a lot of texture to your hair and they're perfect for date night or if you're just feeling extra flirty. Once your hair is dry and you're ready to start, section it off. I start by sectioning mine just in 2 sections, taking it from the temples and going all the way around. So, I have a bottom section and a top section. I'm gonna spritz it with the heat protectant spray. Once that's settled, I'm ready to start curling. Now, my curling iron is my magic tool. This is my clampless curling iron. I live it because it doesn't use the clamp that sometimes causes a dent. I like that it tapers because it makes the waves look more natural. So, I start curling. How do I curl? I take it in one hand. I take about 2-inch sections of my hair with the other hand and I simply wrap my short hair and twist around the barrel. Hold it and let it go. Know the curl. So, continue to wrap this all around your head. Now that I finished the back, I'm gonna go on to the next step which is taking down the top part, letting it fall completely over top. Don't forget to spritz your heat tamer spray and start again. I'm gonna start in the front and wrap my hair away from my face. Once your whole head is curled like super curled. If you have front pieces, you can just lift them up. Don't curl them. Take the base of your curling iron at its widest and run it back and forth at your hair's root. This will make sure it kind of stays in line with the style and doesn't just fall flat. Now that we did all of that work, you're gonna brush them out. Okay. Now, you could take a deep breath 'cause it's over. I brushed out my curls. All that hard work is gone, but now I have just wavy texturized hair and that's exactly what I was going for.

Headbands for Short Hairstyles

And trust me, it's gonna look nothing but sophisticated. When wearing a headband as an adult, there's three things you really need to pay attention to-- that's the color, the size, and the texture of the headband. For example, these are two headbands I wear regularly. As you can see, the colors are quite similar. Since I'm a brunette, I like to stick with colors that either match my hair or blend in to my hair. And that's what you should do, too. Second, you don't want your headband to be bigger than an inch if you're wearing a regular headband, and you don't want it to be much smaller than this. This 1-inch headbands here is perfect for any kind of hairstyle, really, especially if you're leaving it down. The thinner headband works very well in an updo. You slip it right in, and that adds a little bit of a sass. Third, you wanna make sure you pay attention to texture. I love to do a little bit of sparkle. Both of my headbands have sparkle in them, but there's not too much bling. So now, I'll just top in my headband, and I'm gonna place it about an inch away from my hairline. And it just adds a little bit to my look. But you'll notice that I kept hair out in front of my headband, and that's completely a personal preference. When you leave pieces down in front of the headband, it makes your facial features appear softer. And of course, who doesn't want that? But if you wanna pull it all back with your headband, go ahead and do that as well. There's no right or wrong.kept hair out in front of my headband, and that's completely a personal preference .

My hair is very fine, so my braid comes out a little bit small. You don't have to braid it to the very end. Then, I just took here with two cross bobby pins in the back. And that's the one side.
