How to Use Hair Styling Tools for Short Hair

Use Hair Styling Tools for short hair before and after.

Styling your hair gives it a unique aesthetic feel. The good thing is that hair can take on any form of styling, primarily if you use the right tool. TYMO hair styling tools can be your ideal pick, especially if the hair is short and almost every other option seems not to work. Using the right hair styling tool helps maintain the health of your hair while minimizing the damage that excessive heat, pulling, and tagging cause. The emphasis on using suitable styling tools can even be higher if the hair is short,  since not every styling tool can handle them. Let's learn more about using TYMO hair styling tools for short hair in this female and male hair styling guide.


Types of Hair Styling Tools for Short Hair

Styling short hair can be quite challenging compared to longer hair. It requires an arsenal of styling tools that do the job well to achieve various looks. So, here are some of the most suitable tools you can use for styling short hair.


Hair straightener brush

As its name suggests, the hair straightening brush straightens the hair using heat. It combines flat iron and hair brush functionalities and can be convenient for styling short hair. You should know that not every pick can do the job for you. The TYMO PORTA PRO hair straightener brush combines anti-scald shielded teeth and ceramic-coated heating bristles. That makes it an ideal pick for short hair.


Hair Dryers

Most hair dryers do the work pretty well, especially on short hair. You may only need to change the nozzle to suit you, and you'll be ready. These hair-styling tools use heat to dry wet hair and can add volume, create texture, and smoothen it while creating defining curls and waves. The TYMO Airhype can be more versatile, allowing you to style short hair like a breeze. Still, the TYMO Airhype Lite can be a go-to hair styling tool for short hair.

Step 3. Section Your Hair

Divide your hair into manageable sections using clips or hair ties. For shorter hair, you may only need a few sections to work with.


Step 4. Straightening Short Hair

For a sleek and polished look, run the TYMO PORTA PRO through each section of hair, starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends. Hold the brush at a slight angle for best results.


Step 5. Adding Waves to Short Hair

To create subtle waves or texture, twist small sections of hair around the TYMO PORTA PRO and hold for a few seconds before releasing. Alternate the direction of the twist for a natural-looking wave pattern.


Step 6. Finishing Touches

Once you've styled all sections of your hair, take a moment to assess the overall look. Use a lightweight hair spray or serum to set your style in place and add shine.


Step 7. Clean and Store Your TYMO PORTA PRO

After use, allow your TYMO PORTA PRO to cool down completely before cleaning it with a soft cloth. Store it in a cool, dry place to prolong its lifespan.

  • Use the right tools, especially if your hair is short. Determine what your ideal tool is depending on your type of hair.
