‘Tis the sea­son and for most of us this means office par­ties as well as fam­i­ly din­ners. If your hair is short, some­times it can be dif­fi­cult to find a pret­ty style that makes you not feel awk­ward. I do feel that many nat­u­rals do not ful­ly enjoy their hair because they are wait­ing for it to grow longer but at every hair stage, it is real­ly pos­si­ble to style your hair to per­fec­tion. Here are a few styles that I have found that would real­ly work on hair that is 4–6 inch­es long.

1. Flat twist and Flexi Rod Curl updo

This is such a pret­ty and super girly style. You would need to avoid humid­i­ty if you want to keep the curls in the front, so it is per­fect for a non-danc­ing type of par­ty

Prod­ucts Used:
Bob­by pins and flexi rods
Entwine Afro­disia 9 Leave In Con­di­tion­er
Can­tu Shea But­ter Leave In Con­di­tion­er
Lot­ta­body Set­ting Lotion
Nume Argan­ics Argan Oil
EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel

2. Flat twist out on a tapered hair cut

Shap­ing your hair is a great way to real­ly start to enjoy short hair. A tapered cut can real­ly enhance the appear­ance of your hair and flat­ter your face as well.

Prod­ucts Used:
Shea Mois­ture curl enhanc­ing smooth­ie

3. Perm rods on short hair

Perm rods are pret­ty per­fect for short hair and cre­ate more defined curls. The results you get do depend on your hair tex­ture and the size of the rods you use

Prod­ucts Used:
Perm rods
Beau­ti­ful Tex­tures Curl Defin­er Mousse

4. Perm rods on a TWA

This is anoth­er vari­a­tion of the perm rod set on hair with a larg­er curl and which is short­er. The result is slight­ly dif­fer­ent from video 3 but the final effect is still a more defined and shaped curl.

Prod­ucts Used:
Perm rods
VO5 mois­ture milk con­di­tion­er
Jane Carter curl defin­ing cream
Shea Mois­ture curl enhanc­ing smooth­ie
Queen Helene styling gel nor­mal

Ladies, how will you be rock­ing your hair for Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties? Which of these looks would you try?

Thank You! This is exact­ly what I need­ed.


I won­der if I can achieve the 3rd look with roller sets? I real­ly hate using rods.


I real­ly liked the first one. I won­der if I could do that with my hair for New Years? my hair isn’t quite as long as hers, but I think it might still look good. The curls just won’t be so long.

Live the first style! Will def­i­nite­ly rock this when I take me braids out :)


Great styles, real­ly loved the third one.


Lovely,thanks for post­ing.

Think Like Linda

I real­ly love the first style, the way its part­ed in the back and puffy yet curly on top its gor­geous :)
