Here are a few great ideas…
1. Skin Deep
Remember that cutting your hair enhances all your facial features, good and bad. Make sure you take care of your skin so you can stand out for all the right reasons. Never sleep with your make-up on *clearsthroat*. Drinks lots and lots of water. Alleviate oily foods from your diet. These are just a few things I live by. Oh and obviously, the regular skin regime.
2. Colour Up!
Be fierce, you’ve come this far… Short hair is more interesting worn with colour. Haircolour is an accessory on its own. But remember to use a colour that suits your skin tone.
3. Glam it Up!
Having short hair is like possessing a clean canvas. Don’t be scared to play with accessories. They are another thing that’ll stand out along your facial features when you have short hair. Don’t overdo it though, unless you’re going for the Christmas tree look.
Don’t fret. I’m sure you thinking typical Mohawk!!! This is a different adaptation; your sides don’t have to be bald. You can just get it cut shorter than the top strip of hair. Another ‘safe’ way of getting this look is to merely braid the sides and leave the top strip. Frankly, if your hair is in the shape of the Mohawk, flat sides and long in the middle, then voila!!
If you went the natural/afro hair route, twisting things your hair is great. Dreadlocks can also be styled, dyed and accesorised!!
Again I say, because your features are enhanced. You need to turn things up a notch. Wearing the right make-up is a key, you won’t be looking like a boy. Highlight those cheeks, lips and eyes, be sure to add colour. But steer clear of the “Bozo the clown” territory!
7. Processed short hair
This is my least favourite simply because it has been overdone. Although keeping hair ethnic has been around for ages, it remains classic and timeless somehow.
8. Wear it with style
Let your personally shine through!!
