Nowadays, girls with long hair usually have the most hairstyles, for example, braids, waves, curls, and so on. However, short hair also has actually many options for you to style. Are you looking for hairstyles for short hair? Now follow the step-by-step tutorial below to learn how to perfectly curl short hair to get a fabulous hairstyle whether you use a curling iron, wand, flat iron, or going no heat.

Curling Short Hair With A Curling Iron, Flat Iron, Or Curling Wand

Step 1: Prepare dry hair or next-day hair. Of course, the next-day hair can be better to hold curls. If you wash your hair before curling, you need to make sure your hair is clean and completely dry when you start curling hair.

Step 2: Add a small amount of gel or wax to your hair, and then run your finger through your hair so the gel and wax can be evenly distributed which can help hold the curls for a long period.

Step 3: Apply some heat protectant spray to your hair before curling short hair and let it air dry for one or two minutes. We all know these heat styling tools will more or less cause some irretrievable damages to your hair, especially for ends. So it is very necessary to spray some heat protectant spray to keep hair healthy and shiny.


Step 4: Use a brush to comb your hair. Before curling short hair, you had better use a wide-toothed comb to gently brush from the bottom up, which can help distribute the heat protectant spray. If it is a human hair wig, you also can use a specially designed wig tooth to comb hair gently and patiently to protect your hair from tangles.

Step 5: Tie up the upper half of your hair with a hair band. You can use a brush to gather the top half of your hair and secure it in a bun. And if your hair is too short to tie up, it is a good idea to use alligator clips to secure the upper layer of your hair.


Step 6: Heat your curling iron for two or three minutes in advance and opt for proper barrels. The smaller the barrel is, the tighter your curls will be. Therefore, you can use a 1-inch barrel for loose waves or beach waves, or use a 0.5-inch barrel to get some tight curls.

Step 7: Roll some pieces of hair on the barrel for five to ten seconds, away from your face, and then loosen it. At that moment, you must notice not to let hair stay on the barrel for a too long time to avoid damages. Besides, you can warp your hair around the curling iron for a longer or shorter time according to your need. For example, if you want to get some loose waves, you can just stay for five seconds and loosen them. If you want to go for more tight waves, you can keep it for ten seconds o longer time and use some alligator clips to secure your hair on your head.

Step 8: Repeat the curling process until all hair is curled. In this process, don’t curl the ends. For short hair, it is better to have straight ends than curl them up, which will keep the hair from looking too short and prevent the curly hair from sticking up from the top of your head.


Therefore, if you are using a flat iron, you could pinch the part of your hair down to about a quarter of a centimeter inside the end of your hair before tuning it up; if you are using a simple curling wand, you could wrap your hair around the wand starting at the top but stopping at about 1.25 centimeters from the ends.

In the end, don’t forget to let your hair cool for one to two minutes.

Step 9: Spray your hair with some hair gels to hold curls and prevent frizz. And nothing is better than using your finger to comb hair and make hair more natural and messy.
