Cute Hairstyles For Short Hair and Medium Length Hair

If you have short hair, there may be two kinds of days:

1. Days when you’re absolutely in LOVE with your chop and you rock it like it’s nobody’s business. 

or…

2. You silently cry inside, get frustrated that you no longer can do many hairstyles, and ask yourself why you ever decided to cut your hair short.

Okay, maybe that second one was a little dramatic, but if you have short hair, you know that although it may take a shorter amount of time to style it – it’s oftentimes harder to come up with creative hairstyles because there isn’t enough length to create them. 

Although a really quick and simple solution is to get clip-in hair extensions (click here to learn more about those), we also wanted to show you that there do exist hairstyles for short hair that are super simple and quick to create.

So, in today’s video we are going to be showing you 3 fun and simple hairstyles for shorter hair. Watch the video below or scroll down to see what they are. 

If you have seen Elanna on our Blog before (like running late hairstyles and buzzfeed hair hacks tested), you may have noticed that she had longer and brighter blonde hair. But she recently went for the chop and went a little bit darker with her hair color. 

For days when she still wants to rock longer, fuller hair, she uses her Dirty Blonde Luxy Hair extensions, and on days when she feels like rocking the chop – these are her 3 go-to hairstyles. 

By the way – although some may consider Elanna’s hair ‘medium length’, all these hairstyles can definitely be created on short hair, medium hair, and even long hair. 

Short Hairstyle #1

hairstyle for short hair

This is a trendy hairstyle that will work for any hair length, even if you have a bob. It’s great for when you want to keep the hair out of the face or want to hide your second day hair. Here are the steps:

  1. Create a french braid going from the front top of your head, all the way down the back of your head and secure with a hair tie that matches your hair color. Fan out the braid for a bit more volume. (If you want to learn how to do a french braid, watch this YouTube tutorial). 
  2. Take a piece of hair on the right side of your hair and wrap it around the back to hide the hair elastic. Secure with 1 or 2 bobby pins. 
  3. Repeat on the other side – wrap a piece of hair around the elastic again and secure with some bobby pins.

That’s it! If you like some pieces of hair left out at the front to frame your face, feel free to do that, just like Elanna did (and always does, haha) in the video.

Short Hairstyle #2

This hairstyle works well for short hair because the ponytail is low in the back and therefore you won’t have to deal with short hairs in the back falling out. 

  1. Create a side part
  2. Start creating a french braid down the side of your head towards the back, and tie with a small elastic. 
  3. Pull all your hair, including the braid, into a low ponytail in the back.
  4. Take the piece that is the braid within the ponytail, and wrap it around the base of the ponytail. This adds a creative element. Don’t worry if pieces are falling out – it just adds to that messy look!
  5. Replace the small elastic with bobby pins to secure the wrapped braid at the bottom of your ponytail.

How cute is this hairstyle?! Definitely not as boring as a regular ponytail.

Short Hairstyle #3

This super quick and easy hairstyle is so simple but yet is one of our favorites. 

twisted short hair

  1. Create a middle part
  2. Take a small section of the hair at the front of the face on your left side, and start twisting towards your ear. 
  3. As you twist, add small pieces of hair along the hairline. 
  4. Once you reach the back, secure these pieces with some bobby pins.
  5. Keep this hairstyle neatly twisted or pull on the hair a little bit and leave out framing pieces at the front.

You can also do two layers of twists to give it an even more creative spin, like this:

Super cute everyday hairstyle that takes literally no time to create!

Top 3 Best Natural Heat Protectants for your Hair

Do you find your hair feels dry and lacks lustre after blow-drying? Are your curls not lasting as long as they used to? One of the main reasons why this would happen is simple: your hair is most likely damaged. To prevent this from happening, it’s so important to use heat protectant on your hair before applying heat. In this week’s blog post we are sharing some effective and natural ways to protect your hair from heat styling.

In case you didn’t know, natural oils behave very similarly to silicones at high temperatures by creating protective barriers around the hair cuticle. In other words, they perform miracles – both protecting your hair and preventing damage. Below are our top three best oils that you can pick up on your next trip to the grocery store that will help protect your hair from heat damage.

  • Grapeseed Oil

  • This gorgeous oil, available at most health food stores, has a very high smoke point. It can withstand high heat from hair straighteners, curlers, and blow dryers which means – perfect news for your hair! It will also finish off your hair with a beautiful style. Apply 4 – 6 drops evenly throughout your hair and style as normal.

    Almond Oil

    Similar to grapeseed oil, almond oil also has a very high smoke point. It actually has a higher heat point than grapeseed oil, making it a perfect candidate for use with high heat tools. Besides providing great heat protection, this oil is very high in Vitamins E, D, B1, B2, B6 and A – which are all helpful nutrients that allow you to grow strong, healthy, and beautiful hair. We recommend to get the organic cold-pressed variety. Apply 2 – 3 drops evenly, comb through damp hair, and then dry and style to your desire. 

    Shea Butter

    Shea Butter is considered to be a great heat protectant because of it’s thermal conductivity. In other words, it creates a very even barrier around the hair, making it as good as popular chemical silicones like dimethicone. Look for the biological term “butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)” in the ingredients list of hair masks, finishing products, and blow-dry prep sprays. We promise – you won’t be disappointed! 

    And finally, make sure to comb your hair thoroughly before styling. It might seem like common sense, however, brushing your hair and removing all knots means the styler can easily glide through the hair, minimizing damage.

    So now that you have heat protection sorted, are you stuck for styles? We’ve got you covered! Check out these easy, big, sexy curls that are perfect for any occasion.

      How to Wash Clip In Hair Extensions

      Now that you are a proud owner of your very own set of Luxy Hair extensions, it is important to care for them properly to keep them looking luscious, smooth, and shiny for longer. If given the TLC they deserve, Luxies can last anywhere from 3-6 months, or even up to a year or longer!

      Luxy Hair extensions are made with 100% Remy human hair, but since they don’t receive natural oils from the scalp like our own hair, they do not need to be washed as often as your own hair. In fact, we recommend washing your Luxies every 15-20 wears or when there is too much product buildup to the point where they become unmanageable to style.  

      In this blog post, we’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to get your Luxies squeaky clean, as well as how to restore moisture and shine. Remember, the less you wash your Luxies, the longer they’ll last! Watch this quick video tutorial or scroll down for text instructions:

      Step 1: Gather your products

      To wash your Luxies, you’ll need a shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask. We highly recommend using alcohol-free and sulfate-free products, as these ingredients are very harsh on the hair and can dry out the hair. Dry hair = frizzy, tangly hair and no one wants that! Organic hair products are packed with natural ingredients like proteins, essential oils, vitamins, and fruit extracts. These ingredients provide nourishment to your hair, making it healthy, beautiful, and glossy. Organic hair products may be a few extra dollars, but trust us, they’re worth it! Mimi uses the brand Rahua, while Leyla uses Amenta. Some of our other favourite brands of organic hair products include John Masters, and Intelligent Nutrients. Check out this article for more information on why we love organic hair products. Whichever shampoo you use, make sure it is moisture restoring and nourishing, to give the hair that extra goodness. For conditioners, try to use a deep conditioner that restore dryness and repairs damage. 

      Step 2: Fill up your sink

      Plug the drain in your sink and fill it up with lukewarm water. You don’t want the water to be too hot or too cold. Just like Goldilocks would say, lukewarm water is “just right!” Next, add 2-3 dollops of shampoo into the sink and swish it around, then take your hair extensions and place them in the water. To avoid tangling, we recommend to wash your extension wefts one by one. 

       How to wash hair extensions

      Step 3: Shampoo your hair extensions

      With your hands, gently soak your Luxies in the water to get them nice and wet. Once they are fully wet throughout, pop a few more drops of shampoo directly on the hair, and use your hands to lather the shampoo. Use a top to bottom motion, gently working the shampoo throughout the hair, and try to avoid lathering up and down, as this could create tangles in the extensions. Continue lathering up the hair for a few minutes, until the hair extensions are nice and soapy. Then, submerge the hair extensions into the water and let them soak for 2-3 minutes.

      Shampoo for hair extensions

      Step 4: Rinse out each weft

      Once you have let your Luxies soak, drain the sink, and rinse each weft separately under lukewarm water. Gently run your fingers through the hair from top to bottom. When the water runs clear, that means all the shampoo has washed out. Rinse and repeat with each weft. 

      Step 5: Condition hair extensions

      Once all the wefts are rinsed off, squirt 2-3 pumps of a deep conditioner on your hand and run the product through each weft from top to bottom, again, avoiding moving in a bottom to top motion, as this could cause tangles. You should feel the hair instantly become softer and smoother. Once you have worked the conditioner through your first weft, set it in the sick and repeat with the rest of the wefts. Then, grab all your wefts together and work the conditioner through the hair one last time. Set the extensions in the sink for at least 4-5 minutes or longer, to give the hair ample time to soak up nourishment and moisture.

      Best shampoo for extensions

      Step 6: Rinse out each weft again

      Once you have let your wefts sit for at least 4-5 minutes, take each weft and rinse them under lukewarm water, squeezing out the water from top to bottom. Rinse and repeat with the rest of the wefts.

      Step 7: Give the hair a burst of cold water

      Once your extensions are squeaky clean and all the conditioner has been rinsed out, run cold water and rinse the extensions again. Cold water helps restore shine to the hair and coats the cuticles of each strand of hair, which protects the hair as well. Then, squeeze out as much water as possible. 

      Step 8: Use a deep conditioning hair mask

      A hair mask works wonders for reducing frizz, and re-hydrating the hair. Healthy, hydrated hair = smooth, glossy, shampoo-commercial-worthy hair! Take a generous amount of leave-in hair product and work it through the extensions from top to bottom, making sure to coat all the strands with the hair mask. Then, lay a towel on a flat surface (we usually use our beds) and lay each weft down flat. 

      Human hair extensions

      Alternatively, after conditioning your Luxies, we recommend to apply a deep conditioning mask and putting all the extensions into a shower cap to help seal in moisture. Leave overnight. In the morning, gently rinse and lay out on a flat surface to dry. Once dry, say hello to smooth and shiny hair extensions!

      Step 9: Apply heat protectant and brush your hair extensions

      While still wet, grab your favourite heat protectant spray and spray the extensions from top to bottom, for an extra layer of protection. (We recommend doing this every time you heat style your Luxies as well.) Then, take either a wide tooth comb or a wet brush, and brush the wet hair gently from bottom to top. This ensures that if there are any tangles in the hair, they are brushed out and smoothened, instead of breaking off. Brushing the hair while wet, also ensures that the hair dries flat, straight, and smooth.

      Hair extension brush

      Step 10: Let the hair air-dry

      We recommend using as little heat as possible on your hair extensions, to prevent damage, so we like to let our Luxies air dry. If you’re in a rush, you can blow dry your Luxies using a low heat setting.

      And that’s it! If you follow these 10 simple steps when washing your extensions, your clip-in Luxy Hair extensions should last longer, and look beautiful for longer. 

      Washing your extensions properly isn’t the only thing that prolongs their lifespan, however. Check out this video for Mimi’s additional care tips and tricks. We also love using creative ways to style hair without heat, for healthier hair. Click here for some fun, heatless hairstyles.

      Healthy Summer Hair: 6 Tips

      Summer is in full speed! What can be better than warm sunny days, floral dresses and icy cold lemonades? That sounds like perfection if you ask me…Summer, however, can bring a few challenges to our hair. Summer heat can damage our locks, give us very oily scalps, and even turn our hair green when in contact with chlorine (yes, this can actually happen). But, fear not! We are here to your rescue and want to share 6 amazing and simple summer hair tips!

      1. Reduce Heat

      Mimi Wearing A Hat To Cover From The Summer Heat

      If you are going to spend a long day in the sun, we recommend either applying a deep conditioner containing SPF protection or covering your scalp with a hat. Another way of protecting your hair is to avoid heat styling as much as possible (we know this can be challenging, but your hair will be screaming “ahh, thank you!”). Plus, we have tons of heatless hairstyle ideas on our YouTube Channel. My personal favorites are these perfect heatless curls and these mermaid waves (that will make you look like a true mermaid this summer).  

      2. Limit Chlorine Damage

      Ever heard of that green hair swimmers get after too much exposure to chlorine? Well, sadly it actually exists. The key to avoiding the greenish color and chlorine damage is to prep your hair before taking a swim. Since dry hair acts like a sponge, you can rinse your hair with tap water before your swim in order to ensure it will absorb significantly less chlorine. After the swim, rinsing the hair with some apple cider vinegar and water will limit further chlorine damage. So you can kiss green summer hair goodbye! 

      3. Keratin Treatments  

      Keratin & Protein Hair Treatment KeraGreen

      We see it too often…colored hair that gets ruined and damaged from all the salt water and sun exposure. This is because heat and sun oxidize our hair color, leaving our beautiful hair dry. Kertain Treatments can help revitalize and rehydrate our hair, bringing it back to life. There are tons of natural hair products and we’ve found a great Organic Keratin Conditioner, which you can find here.

      4. Wash Less

      Have you ever heard the recommendation to wash your hair everyday during the summer because it helps control oily scalps? Oh, really? Actually, frequent washing strips your scalp from its natural oils, stimulating an additional production of oil. The solution to this is to wash your hair less. On break days, make sure to rinse your hair with cold water since it closes the cuticle and seals its moisture. A great DIY treatment to control oil secretion in your scalp, is to mix 2-3 tbsp of coconut water with the juice of one lemon. Apply the mixture to your scalp and massage it for 5 minutes before rinsing it with cold water. For best results, do this as a weekly treatment. 

      5. Fight Frizz

      Do you ever feel like your hair grows in size the second you step outside on a humid day? Frizzy hair is definitely a challenge, especially in the summer months. But don’t worry, we’ve got a few creative solutions that will help you save the day! Create an easy taming spray mixing argan oil and water. This helps moisturize your hair while taming it against the humidity. Running late and don’t have that much time? Hairspray your brush and run it through your hair, which will lock your frizzy and rebellious locks in place. In addition, avoid brushing your hair with regular brushes, and consider switching to a double-set wide teeth comb as the former causes natural curls to frizz.

      6. Drink More Water

      We will never hear it enough: drink more water! Not only is it indispensable for your body and mind, but it also does wonders to your hair! Remember that water will always hydrate your hair and scalp. In addition to drinking 2-3 litres of water a day, make sure that you are eating delicious healthy foods that are boosting hair growth. We made this blog post about five foods for healthy hair, make sure you add them to your diet.

      3 Ways To Wear a Ponytail With Hair Extensions

      Oh ponytails! Pretty sure everyone loves them…and trust us, a ponytail does NOT have to boring! 

      In this video hair tutorial, we will show you three different ways on how to wear a ponytail using clip in hair extensions: a sleek high ponytail, a messy ponytail, and a romantic ponytail. These styles are quick and easy to create, which makes it a perfect choice for an everyday hairstyle.

      The beauty of these techniques is that you can use regular clip in hair extension wefts, without having to purchase a faux clip in ponytail. Watch the video below to learn how:


      How to: High Sleek Ponytail With Extensions 

      • Start off with creating a small ponytail at the crown of your head. This little ponytail will act as a secure base for clipping in the hair extensions.
      • Take a 3 clip weft and start clipping it in around the ponytail. Be sure to clip in as close to the hair elastic as possible, so that you will have space to clip in other wefts. The tighter you clip these wefts in around the hair elastic, the more comfortable it will feel.
      • Continue to clip 2 and 3 clip wefts in the same manner, around the ponytail that you’ve created.
      • For extra thickness, you can use 1 clip wefts and simply clip them onto the wefts that are already clipped into your hair.
      • Then, gather all your hair into a high ponytail and make sure that it covers the wefts. This is why it was important to clip them in tightly – the smaller the base, the easier it is to conceal it. 
      • Secure the ponytail with a hair tie and smooth away any flyaways. 
      • To finish off the look, take a hair strand and wrap it around the base of your ponytail. Not only will this hide the hair elastic, but will also give a very polished and unique look.

      How to: Quick Messy Ponytail Using Hair Extensions 

      • This is probably our favorite way to wear hair extensions in a ponytail. The whole idea is to clip in the wefts in the same direction that your hair would go in naturally when put up in a ponytail.
      • Separate some hair at the front and clip in a 2 clip weft as you normally would. If you want more volume in your ponytail, you can clip in two wefts in this section. 
      • Separate the hair mid-way and flip upside down. Make sure you leave enough hair at the nape of the neck to cover the wefts afterwards.
      • Continue clipping in wefts, but this time upside down. This way, when you put up your hair in a high ponytail, the clips will not pull at your roots and will feel very comfortable. This tutorial is a great visual example on how to do this technique.
      • Take out random hair pieces and baby hairs at the front to frame your face and get that messy look going.
      • Tug at the top of your hair to loosen up the ponytail.
      • Take random sections of the ponytail, and tease them. Here is a video tutorial on how to get volume and tease your hair, if you’re not sure how to do it. 
      • Use hairspray to set the look (we recommend a natural hairspray – read why in this post).
      • For extra texture, scrunch the hair upwards with your hand. There you have it – a fun and super playful ponytail hairstyle!

      messy ponytail with hair extensions


      How to: Romantic Ponytail With Extensions

      • For this hairstyle, you can either clip in some wefts (3 and 4 clip wefts) or the full set for extra thickness.
      • Since this ponytail sits lower on our head, clip in the wefts as you normally would. Here is a tutorial on how to clip in extensions if you’re not sure how. 
      • Pull up the hair into a low ponytail. Feel free to have your hair parted whichever way you like it on you. 
      • Start curling your ponytail in soft curls. Here we have a great collection of videos on different techniques of curling hair – pick your favorite! 
      • Brush out the curls for a soft and romantic look. Your hairstyle is complete!

      How To Clip-In Hair Extensions

      Hello, beautiful!

      If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide on how to clip in your hair extensions, you’ve come to the right place.

      We have specifically created a step by step video with instructions on how to clip in Luxy Hair extensions. If this is your first time wearing hair extensions, you will find this guide especially helpful.

      It’s common for a lot of girls and women to get nervous or unsure when it comes to hair extensions, because not a lot of people are familiar with them. But after reading this post and watching the video, you will see for yourself how truly easy it is to transform your hair into long, voluminous locks in just minutes, without any damage to your hair. Doesn’t that sound lovely? Let’s get started. Watch the video now, or scroll down for text instructions:

      Note: Your set will come with 9 wefts if you have the 120 gram set, and 10 wefts if you have the 160 gram or 220 gram set. This particular video shows how to clip in a 160 gram Mocha Brown Luxy Hair Extensions set.

      The tools you will need:

      One of the best features about Luxy Hair extensions is the super sturdy and secure clips. Each clip has a silicone grip which helps the weft to securely and tightly attach to the hair without falling out. All you have to do is click to open and click back to close.

      Luxy Hair Clip In Hair Extensions Silicone Clip Weft

      With clip in hair extensions, there is no commitment as there is with other types of hair extensions that are taped, bonded, or glued to the hair – you can clip them in and out whenever you like. Isn’t that nice? You can have the best of both worlds – short hair, and long hair – whenever you feel like it.

      Weft #1: Start with a 3 clip weft

      Start off by brushing your own hair thoroughly using a soft paddle brush to get rid of any tangles. Separate a straight thin section of hair with your finger or a comb at the nape of your neck and clip the rest of your hair away by using a hair clip.

      how to clip in hair extensions

      Take a 3 clip weft. Brush it out before clipping it into your hair. Start from the bottom and work your way up the weft, using a soft paddle brush.

      Measure the weft against your head to ensure its size will fit perfectly into the sectioned hair.

      Measure luxy hair extensions weft to make sure it fits

      Find the centre of your head and clip in the middle clip into the roots of your hair. Be sure to clip as close to the roots as possible. To make it easier and to prevent the clip from sliding down too far, try pulling that section slightly away from your scalp to have some leverage, or simply tease it to create a more secure base. Once the middle clip has been clipped in, clip the left side and then the right.

      That’s it for the first weft! The same process will apply for every weft.

      Weft #2: Take a smaller 4 clip weft

      Separate a straight thin section of hair above the first clipped weft, and clip the rest of the hair away with a hair clip.

      Take the smaller 4 clip weft. Brush it from the bottom up to make sure there aren’t any knots. Measure the weft against the sectioned portion to make sure it will fit perfectly on your head.

      Find the centre of your head and clip in the middle two clips into the roots of your hair first, and then follow by clipping in the side clips. Make sure there are no bumps in the weft by slightly stretching the weft to the sides when you’re clipping in the middle clips.

      Weft #3: Take a larger 4 clip weft

      Separate a straight thin section of hair from ear to ear right above the second clipped in weft, and clip away the rest of the hair.

      Take the largest 4 clip weft. Brush it out and measure it against your head to make sure it fits. Clip in the middle two clips in the middle of the sectioned hair and continue by clipping in the side clips.

      If you are using the 120 gram set, simply omit this step and continue onto the next step using the second 3 clip weft.

      Separate a straight thin section of hair about two inches below the crown of your head and clip the rest of the hair away with a clip.

      Take the second 3 clip weft. As usual, brush it out carefully and measure against your head to make sure it will fit perfectly. Find the centre of your head and clip in the middle clip into the roots of your hair first, followed by the side clips. Now, all the large wefts at the back of your head have been clipped in, and only small ones should be left.

      The smaller wefts: 2 clip and 1 clip wefts

      These are the wefts that go on the sides of your hair: there are two 2 clip wefts, and four 1 clip wefts. They will add volume on the sides and make everything blend in more seamlessly.

      Separate a straight thin section of hair about two inches above the ear on the side, and clip the rest of the hair away. Take a 2 clip weft and secure it closest to your hairline first. Then secure the second clip closer to the back of your head.

      Then, separate a section of hair right above the 2 clip weft and clip the rest of the hair away. Brush out two 1 clip wefts and clip them in onto a small piece of hair as close to the roots as possible, above the 2 clip weft, anywhere where you feel you need more hair.

      Repeat the exact same process on the other side of your head.  Brush your hair and check in the mirror to make sure that all the wefts are hidden, especially in the back. And that’s it!
