Little wonder then that most of your on screen and stage show divas don weaves at every given occasion. However, the one myth that people have about weaves is that it is must to have long tresses in order to sport a weave. This is in fact a wrong notion, for women with short hair can sport short weave hairstyles with equal élan as well!
With short strands too you can add volume to your hair and feel great about yourself and your hairdo. If you are keen on experimenting with short weave hairstyles, the following can serve as a great guide! So read on to find out more.
A bob with weaves and streaks
Is your aim to look absolutely chic with a weave hairstyle? One of the traditional and yet trendy ways to do so is by sporting a bob cut. All you need to do is keep it at one length and let it reach anywhere between your chin and your shoulder. If you want to be a little more versatile, you can add bangs. According to your preference you can either choose short bangs that cover your forehead or have the ones that are longer and side swept.
If you think that a plain bob is boring, we have just the solution for you! We suggest that you try out the streaked bob! A universal dye may cause hair damage but not so with streaks! You can experiment with any colours you like. You can use a honey or a caramel shade or if you are feeling funky you can go all the way with bold and rich colours.
Braids in your weave
The hairstyle you choose should also be according to your face type. For instance if you have a round face and a short hairstyle, you can try out braids in your weave. Not only does it look great but also creates the illusion of long hair. It does not take too long to achieve this style either for you are not dealing with tons of hair. All you have to do is divide your hair into several sections and braid them in. For the ends you can either use elastics, colourful beads or even a bit of hair glue if you're up to it. Braiding your hair will not only make a head turner out of you, it will also have an elongating effect on your face. When you have a round face, you should not do up your hair in a manner that it frames your face.
So as you can see now, it is definitely not mandatory to have a "full head of hair" as the adage goes, to sport weaves. No matter what your face type or short hair length, you can sport short weave hairstyles and completely rock it!
