If you’ve ever chopped off all your hair into a short crop, you’ve probably had that moment of regret wash over you at some point. You almost always wish you could have your long locks back so you have more styling options, because you think long hair is sooo versatile (even though when you had it long you only ever wore it one way!). Well, good news. Short hair is just as versatile. Really, it is.
Case in point: Dianna Agron. She recently chopped her hair to chin-length and has been showing us all sorts of different ‘dos of late. Thanks Dianna, we’re loving the inspiration.
Looking elegant and chic above, Dianna has tonged her lengths (both inwards and outwards for natural movement) and finished her look with a pop of vibrant pink lipstick. Very stunning. If you find your curls drop during the day, prep damp hair with a styling mousse like Schwarzkopf Complete Styling Mousse, $4.69, and once styled, set it in place with a hairspray such as Pantene Pro-V Stay Smooth Hairspray (Flexible Hold), $6.99, which adds a healthy sheen and stops flyaways, too.
This time Dianna’s gone all sexy with a bed-head vibe. To get this look apply a volumising mousse through damp hair (cos sultry hair never sits flat), blast with a hairdyer until almost dry, then finish with a texturising spray and scrunch it up. You can also backcomb through the lengths for an even messier finish. Products that will help you get the look: Joico I-C-E Hair Amplifier Volumizing Mousse, $19.95; and L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni.art Texture Spray, $22.95.
For a sweet, girly feel, go for a smooth finish with a little texture (create this by twisting hair around a vent brush when blowdrying). Try Babyliss Ceramic Vent Brush, $17.50. Take this look into an updo by piecing small sections up and pinning them in place.
Which look do you prefer on Dianna?
Do you always regret cutting your hair the minute you do it?
