Go from a simple bob cut to a very elegant and polished hair ‘do.
What to get this look then what you need to do is start with clean damp hair. While you hair is wet apply volumizing root booster. Now with a rat tail comb create a deep side part. For this look you will want your part to have a slight curve to it going from the off center and curving to create a half moon shape. Now with your styling foam work it through your locks to help give your hair some added body and texture.

Loose Messy Updo
Its not only the girls with long hair that can sport the updos. If your hair is cut shorter than most you can still go with an updo hairstyle. Don’t let the fact that your hair is not as long as the other girls stop you from having just as much fun. The great thing is that you can find that your cropped do can actually work to your advantage. One look you should consider is going with a messy and loose curled do.
To get this type of look you will want to start by washing and cleaning your hair. Towel dry your hair or use you blow dryer on medium heat. Once the hair is completely dry you want to start with your 1 1/2 inch curler and curl your hair outward. With your fingers loosen the curls and after you have gone over your entire head put your hair up in a very loose messy ponytail with the pony starting being about an inch or so from the nape of your neck. Will you will want to do next is twist the pony and left the hair up and secure the ends with a clear elastic headband. Now you need to grab some bobby pins and pin the look so that is stays in place.
Pull out some strands to give the hair an elegant but slightly messy look. You can also use a rat tail comb to help lift the crown of your hair to add more volume and body. This is a great look for girls who have round, long, heart or oval shaped faces. It also works great for thin to medium density hair texture. Pair this with a gown or dress that shows your is elegant and stylish.
Retro or Vintage Finger Wave
You know that that roaring twenties has really been making a come back lately and a lot of the A-listers are rocking the retro styles. If you aren’t afraid of going a little old school a great and inspired style for your short hair would be finger waves. These gorgeous yet shiny vintage looks will make you look perfect for a night out with all of your high school classmates. The tight curls go very well with the simple but stylish finger waves on the top and sides. Trust us this is one hairstyle you won’t go wrong with.
To get this look you will need to start with clean damp hair. With a very good firm hold gel comb it through your hair. Now you will want to use the same comb to help you create strong finger waves on the crown and sides of your hair. To help make sure you don’t pull out the finger waves while you are curling your hair make sure you get a long but skinny hair clip to hold your hair in place.
Now for the fun part. WIth your short hair you will need to insert small plastic rollers to your hair while it is still damp and let dry. That is one option you have or you can let your fingerwaves dry but leave the clip in. This will allow you to use a very small barrel curling iron to add some of the curls you need. Once the curls are completely dry you will want to run your fingers gently through them to separate the curls. Next remove the clip from the waves and finish the look with a firm hold spray.
This is a great short style for prom. If you have a good hold gel you won’t have to add a lot and a great holding gel doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either. There are a lot of good gels out there that work well. Be sure to use one that doesn’t flake or crust up. The short style works great for oval, round, and square faces.
