20 Hairstyles To Try With Short Hair

It is a big decision to decide to cut your hair short after having long hair for so many years. As someone who cut their hair short, I understand the struggle to having to adjust to a new look. When you first cut your hair, it is hard to know how to style it in different ways. Hopefully, these hairstyle suggestions will help expand your knowledge on how to work with your new hair!

1. Beach Waves 

If you have a bob haircut, beach waves l0ok amazing and it’s pretty simple to do. All you need is a small curling wand or if you are able to curl with a flat iron that will work too. You don’t need to make the curls perfect; just let them be loose! So don’t worry if you miss some strands of hair. It’s a great every day look since it is so easy to do!
