Start by washing hair; first of all you must have clean hair before applying anything to it, applying styling products to dirty hair will make your hair look messy and ugly. Therefore before you add any product be it sprays, hair oil and which ever products you choose you should first wash your hair thoroughly clean. But remember having clean hair does not mean washing it daily you can wash it two or three times a week this will keep your hair safe and clean.
Apply styling product; before applying styling products to your hair please leave your hair wet, applying styling products to dry hair will entangle your hair making it hard to brush or comb.
Blow dry hair; use a round styling brush to blow dry hair, you need to blow dry all sides of the hair to make it really smooth. Keep the blow dry a reasonable distance from your hair for best results.
Make use of your fingers; after using the round brush, use your fingers to blow dry. Simply pass your fingers through your hair as you blow dry.
To straighten your hair like the lady in the photo above, you can use Remington S5500 Digital Anti Static 1 Inch Ceramic Hair Straightener, it comes with floating plates which heat up in only 30 seconds, and basically it will save you a lot of time and give you quick results.
HOW TO CARE:
Cut the hair; the best way to maintain short hair is to cut it regularly, you can cut your hair every after three weeks to remove any split ends that make your hair look untidy and to keep it well levelled.
Wash your hair often; short hair needs constant washing to keep it clean. Often does not mean over washing your hair, it simply means washing it every after three days but take note not to wash your hair more than five times a week .
Try using accessories; add some bit of detail to your hair by using accessories, the list of accessories is endless so you can try head bands, hair clips, some hair twists these will definitely give your short hair that smart detail.
Get rid of excessive combing; since your hair is short even when you don’t comb it you still look smart, why suffer with combing your hair daily if it can look good even when you don’t comb it?

Leave your hair damp; after washing your hair do not make it totally dry, use a cotton cloth to dry out only some of the wet to leave it damp. This way your will not be too wet and too dry for to apply a styling product.
Blow dry the shorter areas of the hair; use a round brush to blow dry the shorter areas of your hair. Brush the hair at the back to make it level out well.
Comb the hair; use a narrow tooth comb to make the hair at the front really smooth and stand out well. To make it longer than the hair at the back, you cut the hair at the back shorter and leave the bit at the front a bit longer.
Make you hair shine; making your hair shines can make your look really attractive and stunning. You can choose a hair spray that matches your hair type or apply a serum to make your hair look bright and shiny.
Try to thicken up your hair to add more volume to it and because long faces appear wider when you have a large volume of hair. Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hair Spray (8 Ounces) by Bumble and Bumble. This thickening hair spray is loaded with proteins that moisturize condition and help repair environmental damages caused to your hair. It also provides structure, medium hold, volume and heat protection.
HOW TO CARE:
Do not apply styling products on the scalp; always apply styling products on hair not the scalp, these products contain acids that can be harmful to your scalp. If you have an oily scalp and apply the styling product to your scalp it will it even more oily which becomes uncomfortable and makes your hair dirty giving you the burden of having to wash it daily.
Spray your hair; different hair sprays have different purposes, you can spray your hair using “thicken up” to make it thicker or add volume to it or you can spray your hair to make it shine it all it depends on what you prefer.
Avoid excessive combing; Excessive combing of your hair will instantly break your hair, so you if you need to keep your hair neat you can comb your hair once or twice a day it will be enough to keep your hair neat. Doing this will help keep your hair safe from breaking.

Keep heat tools at reasonable distance while using them; make sure you place your blow drier or flat iron a distance away from your scalp, the heat from these heat tools will make your scalp dry which is dangerous for your hair, it will also make it more expensive for to buy products to fix your damaged hair.
Trim your hair frequently; the best way to keep your short hair on the same level and free from split ends is by trimming your hair frequently. By frequently I mean you should visit a stylist every three or four weeks.
Air dry the hair; due to the tough material that is used to make towels, sometimes its better to air dry, just leave your hair to dry naturally because when you twist your hair in a towel it could damage your hair.

HOW TO CARE;
Dampen your hair until it is wet before you apply shampoo; ensure that you apply shampoo to hair after making it totally wet because water dilutes the acids in shampoo so it will reduce the damage the acids can cause to your hair. Applying shampoo to dry hair is not advisable.
How to use conditioner; after using shampoo your hair will not be soft enough therefore you will need to condition it to make it soft, leave the conditioner in for about 5 minutes and then wash it thoroughly. Use pure clean water to rinse your hair to remove all the conditioner.
Make sure your hair is completely dry; before your think of combing or brushing your hair make sure it is completely dry. Never comb your hair when it is still wet because over time it will gradually weaken and start to break.
Avoid keeping conditioner in your hair for too long; most conditioners contain a lot of acidic ingredients so keeping conditioner in your hair for too long weakens your hair. Reconsider the mentality that keeping conditioner in your hair for too long is a way to make it soft.
