Hair looks different when they are SHORT!!! When we talk about beautiful hair, the first thing that comes to our mind is “long hair.” But be realistic; mostly, you will see medium or short hair lengths that look very eye-catching, finely worn, and in good shape. Short and mid-lengths are easy to carry, hence take little time to maintain.

As summer is around the corner, I will give you some easy to manage hair-color & style ideas for short & medium length hair.

Hair Color Tips for Short Hair

  • The best hair color for short and medium lengths should be either dark or vibrant.

  • If you choose brunettes; it will give your hair a much sharper look, while choosing lighter tones gives your hair fullness and maybe length.

  • Add some highlights or lowlights; adding highlights and lowlights gives hair dimensions. Choose two or three different tones to add dimensions in your hair.

  • If your hair texture is fine & straight; choose a combination of warm colors e.g., violet, deep red, caramel brown, or chocolate brown. Copper or gold-tones mostly look frizzy in fine, straight hair.

  • If your hair is coarse & wavy, e.g., Blonde, ash blonde, ash green, purple, or violet. Copper and chili-red add variation too.
