Short airy hair is any ear neck length cut that looks effortless, fluid and voluminous. It creates styles that can also enhance your best features!
Salon owner and hair artist Rose Newton of Roseville, CA shares her go-to rules when considering a fluffy haircut.
She states, “The style should match your face shape and hair texture. Consult your stylist about what length is right for you. Know which volume placement works best for you—either at the crown or near your cheeks.”
For this look, texture is key. You can choose extra volume depending on what your natural hair texture needs. Your lifestyle is also another thing to consider. This will determine the amount of time you plan to spend doing your locks each day.
For some women, heat styling is required to balance the chop. If you can’t take the time to do this with your locks, it can lead to a frizzy or flat result.
Less is more when styling fluffy haircuts, but still requires a little effort. “Use a styling brush, which is a small to medium ceramic round brush, to create airiness. Apply a root strengthening spritz and finish with a bit of texture spray,” suggests Newton.
This cut can create a cool, effortless finish that boosts your hair’s natural beauty. Just think of Meg Ryan in the 90s!
