The first hairstyle that I would like you to know about is the hairstyle of Zoe Saldana. To get the same hairstyle you should start by applying some thickening mousse on your damp hair and then blow dry the hair. Create a side part and curl the bottom half of the hair with the help of a curling iron. Gather your curls at one side and create a bun. Secure the loose curls with bobby pins, but don’t forget to let some strands stick out for a messy look. Spray the hair with some strong-hold hairspray.

The next hairstyle could have been seen sported by Selena Gomez. To steal her style you should curl the bottom half of the hair and then apply a bit of dry shampoo t the roots to add texture to it. To get the volume you need, you should tease the top of the head. Gather your hair in the back and create a bun but do not forget to leave some pieces out so that they will frame the face.  To finish the style you should spray the hair with some hairspray and you are already good to go.

The last hairstyle that I am going to present is the one of Rachel McAdams. Her hairstyle is easy to recreate if you split the hair into three sections. Tie all the hair in the back into a bun and it might be a good idea to clip the middle section away from the front section while you work on the first one. Tilt your head left and French braid the front section from one side to the other across your head. Once you reach the other ear you should tuck the end under the bun and secure the strands with a bobby pin. Take the middle section and braid that section as well just like you did with the first one. Pin the ends under the bun.

There are some people who like traditions and they say that short hairstyles are not right for women because they don’t look feminine. I must say that I disagree with this statement and I know that there are a lot of women who agree with me.
<-336x280 Large Rectangle - center->
There are many short hairstyles that look very feminine and the greatest advantage of short hairstyles is that they are easy to maintain and most of them are almost self-styling, meaning that women don’t have to spend a lot of time in front of the mirror to get their hair done.

celbrity short hairstyles 220x300 Celbrity Short Hairstyles

The first hairstyle that I would like to tell you about is the one of Victoria Beckham. To get the same hairstyle you should know that in case of this hairstyle the most important thing is the haircut. To start styling your hair you should apply some styling mousse on your damp hair.

Dry the hair with the help of a blow drier. To dry the hair at the top you should use a round brush; dry the strands while you lift them to add volume to the hairstyle. Use the round brush for the bangs as well: blow under at the ends. When all of the hair is dry you should use a curling iron and wrap some sections around it for a few seconds, then release them. You don’t want to get waves or curls; you just want to add body to the hairstyle. Once you’re done you should put a bit of hair wax on your fingers and use them to style the hair into the direction you want. In case of the bangs you should straighten them with the help of a flat iron and then use some wax to shape that as well across the forehead.

The next celebrity short hairstyle that I would like you to know about is the hairstyle of Rihanna. To steal her style you should apply a bit of hair el on your wet hair and comb the hair to distribute the gel. Then blow dry the hair with the help of a round brush. To create the right curls you should roll the hair up, away from the face. When the hair is dry you should pin those locks that don’t want to stay the way you want them. The finishing touch is to spray the hair with some strong-hold hairspray.

The last hairstyle that I am going to tell you about is the hairstyle of Paige Davis. To get the same style you should apply some hair powder at the roots of the hair and then brush the hair to distribute evenly the powder and to achieve the desired look. Finger comb the pieces in the front and put a bit of hair gel at the ends to get the spiky look.

I hope you like these hairstyles and that you will get the chance to try them because these celebrity short hairstyles are easy and fast to style and they look fabulous.11
