One of the most common misconceptions about short hair is how time-consuming styling and upkeep can be. Turns out it’s a myth as old as time, and we’re here to put an end to it. Just like some long hairstyles can look lifeless when not styled, so too can shorter hair. But opting for a shorter style doesn’t mean you’ll be glued to your stylist’s chair every week. In fact, the right low-maintenance short haircut for you will depend a lot on your texture, the condition of your hair, and your lifestyle. For instance, if you have very curly hair, then opting for a sleek bob will require a lot of heat and therefore way more in-salon treatments to repair and restore your strands.
“Every head of hair is different, so it’s important to have a thorough consultation with your stylist on the easiest upkeep for you,” advises Adam Reed, UK editorial ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel. “There are many considerations for a low-maintenance look and techniques that your stylist can achieve for any length you desire.”
