One thing that I didn't consider at all when I got my hair cut recently was how I was going to deal with my newly cropped length. There are lots of very easy things with long hair - you want it out of your face, you just pull it back. When you take it out of a bun or clip, it looks mostly the same. Guys love long hair. You can curl it, braid it, knot it up, layer it.
Now I am not griping about shorter length here at all, because I personally think shorter hair is confident, sexy and edgy. And I know the true worth of a hair style is in how you handle it, people don't just wake up with perfect hair. Unless you're Gisele Bundchen. She probably wakes up with that same tousled goddess-on-the-beach hair she goes to bed with. And Angelina Jolie. Probably Halle Berry.
So this is just a getting-to-be-long-winded way of me saying that I still don't know how to manage my shorter locks. Round brushing and curling irons don't really cut it anymore. I've been pulling my hair back recently because the ends tend to stick every which way and the dreaded frizz is back.
Do any of you ladies with shorter hair have recs on what you use/do to keep your locks sleek and tidy? Am I going to finally have to invest in a flat iron?
