Calling all ladies with lobs, bobs and mobs (apparently this is a new thing)! Did you recently make the chop or have you always rocked a shorter do? Short hair requires less time with a blow dryer, but can call for a bit of creativity in the styling department.
Luckily, Melissa Leitru at Alba Beauty Studio knows a thing or two about styling short hair. We got together a few weeks back and I played guinea pig while she worked magic on my hair (rough, I know). This criss cross hairstyle was my favorite look from the day, and I’ve already recreated it several times at home. It’s super fun, and would be great for date night, girls’ night or the office.
Here’s how you can recreate the look in a few simple steps:
1. Start by teasing hair at the crown. This will help give the hair some texture and extra holding power.
2. Gather a strand of hair from one side of your head, and use a bobby pin to secure it to the other side.
4. Finish with hairspray. Rock your new look!What do you guys think? Give it a go and let me know how it turns out! And if you’re looking for more short hair inspiration, learn how to style this simple braided top knot here.
