  • Styling Options for Men with Short Hair

    Habits are comforting because we know what to expect. In the case of hair styling, this means styling becomes second nature and we become accustomed to our ‘usual’ look.

    Once your hair styling becomes a dull routine, it is a sign that it’s time to say goodbye to the old and experiment with something new. How far will you go? Whether you are ready for a style overhaul or a more subtle change, there will be a styling option for those with Short hairstyles.

    Start by modifying your existing hairstyle. You may want to incorporate one of your own ideas. Combing your hair forward or sideways are two options and even parting hair in a different place can easily change your look. Once your family and friends are used to seeing you wearing different hairstyles every now and then, you may be ready for a bigger change, such as colouring your hair - or maybe only parts of it for a start. Experiment with different styling tools and products to swap between matte and shiny or straight and wavy hair. Try using a new hair gel or test out a matte paste. Have a go at swapping between using a comb, a brush and your fingers. Most importantly, there is quite a bit of fun to be had for embracing change (even if platinum blonde hair is not for you!).
