Using mousse will literally save your day. The mouse can be used for molding your hair so you can style it however. If you are in-between perms this is a lifesaver because it will slick the shorter hair in the back down. You can also use the mousse to create soft finger waves as well.

Styling gel is also great for short hair. When I think of gel I originally think of the black gel that my mom used when I was little that started to flake after a while. But now there is gel with olive oils in it that are specifically for styling. These types of gel can also slick your hair down, but you can create waves around your edges with styling gel.

Wrap and neck strips will save a lot of time when having short hair. After you wash your hair, letting it dry with a styling wrap strip will secure your hair into place, making it easier to style.

A small flat iron is key to creating curls and different looks. Most flat irons and curling irons are designed for longer hair, so getting one specifically for short hair will keep your pixie looking how you want it. You will be able to get your roots straighter by using small flat irons as well.

So if you haven’t had time to go to your hair stylist all of these products will make it look like you just left your appointment!
