When I decided to cut my hair again, I knew it would be a change from the endless ways of styling longer hair. But luckily I've had quite a bit of practice since my hair's been short before, & I've figured out a lot of different things you can still do. Short hair is anything but boring!

SO, I thought I'd share four of my favorite ways to style a bob or lob, all super easy & ten minutes or under!

sea salt spray (I use on freshly washed hair for extra volume, especially if I'm doing waves)
water-based pomade for the finished style 

1) VOLUME IS KEY no matter what your length. I love a good blow out (I really want to try drybar.. anyone have experiences to share? SORRY, getting off topic) & for this style I blow dry until it's 50% dry, then flip my hair over and dry underneath for about 30-45 seconds. 

Dry the front the rest of the way, using the round brush at the crown to get a little tease going (I like to use the cold setting on my dryer to lock in the volume) then brush the ends facing away from you. Set the finished look with a gel or pomade!

2) This was one of my go-tos back when my hair was long, & it's still a favorite because it's literally two steps. 

Straighten your hair or do the blow out from above, then gather the top half of your hair and tie it in a half bun. (tie it up like a normal pony & then on the last tie around, only pull it halfway through) THAT EASY. 

3) Another favorite that has kind of become a signature the past couple years. I even wrote a post on it last year, & luckily the directions are still the same on a bob. BONUS: it only takes half the time it used to!

My hair holds curls/ waves better without hairspray, but if yours is the opposite be sure to lock it aaaall in. I do use pomade to help break the waves up more. 

4) Sure, you may not be able to side braid, but you can tiny braid! I like adding a (one) sided braid to some messy waves for a look that says "I'm trying to look sophisticated but I'm not TRYING."

Fishtails are as fancy as I get, but if you can dutch, french, or any other country, go wild. & then teach me. 

There are so many more things you can do with a short length. Pinterest is my favorite place to look for inspo!
