Having sported short hair in the past, I understand how short locks can sometimes feel uninspiring and slightly restrictive, because you’ve got less hair to work with. However, heated hair tools, like the best curling irons for short hair, will help you get out of your style rut and remind you that it’s not quantity but quality that matters when it comes to hairdos. Now, with a mane halfway down my back, I often find myself tying it up and out of the way, rather than doing anything with it.
It seems 2016 has been the year for trendy short hairstyles. From Taylor Swift’s blunt bob, to the rise of buzzed hair babes on social media, to Kendall Jenner’s shorter strands, to Queenie’s irresistible curls in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — everywhere you turn, ladies are rocking short styles. If you too have opted for a shorter style, curling irons are a quick and easy way to create a new look that’s bouncy, vivacious, and will breathe new life into your locks — it’s always good to mix things up when it comes to your appearance.
Navigating the hair tool world can be tricky, especially if you’ve just changed your hairstyle, AKA gone for the chop. So I spoke to a bunch of hairstylists to discover the best curling irons for short hair, to save you a lot of trial and error and help you achieve your favorite type of curls.
