There’s a reason so many of us opt for a crop – short hair is chic, flattering and brilliantly low maintenance for day-to-day styling. But if there’s one exception to that rule, it’s curling, which invariably becomes trickier the shorter you go.
But never fear, with a little help, nothing’s impossible! We’ve enlisted top celebrity hair stylist Charley McEwen to create this step-bystep video to show you how to curl short hair.
Woman & Home reader Tessa loves her chic blonde crop, but wants to learn how to add texture, volume and make it just that little bit more special for occasions, without having to visit the salon or spend hours slaving away over a contrived or overly constructed do. After working as chief hairdresser on Strictly Come Dancing, and styling W&H cover stars including Kirstie Allsopp and Ruth Langsford, Charley is a master of creating sophisticated hairstyles that are fabulous and flattering at every age.
Here, he shows Tessa how to create a beautiful textured hairstyle using only a handful of products that most of us will already have on our dressing table. Adding in texture and ‘bends’ to the roots of short styles can make fine hair appear fuller and creates a fresh and modern look with a minimum of faff.
This tutorial is perfect for anyone who has hair that’s bob length or shorter, and can be adapted to suit your hair type and texture. You’ll find it ideal if your hair is too short to put up or tie back, but you still want a way to create extra interest for a special event. Our speedy step-by-step video is like having a top hair stylist at your disposal whenever you need one – no salon appointment necessary!
