The answer..... Yes....and...No.
First, as with any haircut or hairstyle, styling ease depends on a few things;
your hair texture and density
your skill at styling your hair
the haircare products you use
Just because you have a short haircut, doesn't automatically mean that your hair life will now be a life of ease. If you have fine, straight hair, you know - the kind where you shampoo and condition your hair, shake it and go and it falls effortlessly into place - you can pretty much have any type of hairstyle that is suited to you with little or no hassles. If, on the other hand, you have hair like me - thick, coarse, wavy, frizzy hair - you are in for some work. I have had short haircuts, (as short as I dared to go) and found that they required much more time and work: blowdrying section by section, flat ironing section by section, etc. AND in nice cool weather, the hairstyle would stay, but as soon as I encountered a humid day - the afro appeared and it wasn't pretty! In order to make my short hairstyle work, I use top of the line salon haircare products for smoothing and straightening, as well as a smoothing shampoo and conditioner. It's amazing how much easier this makes my life. You simply cannot have coarse, frizzy hair, want a smooth, straight style - short or long - and expect it to look good without recommended professional products and styling time. IT WON'T WORK...EVER! :) I hear this in the salon..."It doesn't look like you did it." "I just can't get it to look the way you do at home."
The first thing I ask is: Are you using the professional products I'm recommending for you, which I used on your hair? Are you taking the time to learn how to style this new haircut I've given you? Usually the answer to one or both of those questions is NO!
"I don't have the time, I use Garnier or whatever my husband has in the shower!" Aggggggggggggghhhh! Frustration sets in.
