Smiling young Asian woman with Korean short hairstyle

The wave of short waves has arrived in time for summer. Wavy short hair is the ideal warm-weather look because it looks fresh, feels refreshing, and allows you to embrace texture without worrying that it might look like frizz. On top of all these, it’s also a low-maintenance cut that anyone can rock. Looking for some inspiration? Here are six short haircuts for wavy hair.

Glammed-Up Waves

Here is proof that short hair can look sophisticated and versatile (even on a Teenage Witch!). Trading in her on-screen platinum blonde hair for a strawberry brunette shade, Kiernan Shipka rocks a glammed-up look with structured waves and pearl accessories. This style looks great on fine hair and doesn’t need to experiment with too much volume.

To get this kind of hold, use The TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist™ Hairspray for an invisible hold with a natural finish. Choose Hold Level 3 for the strongest, long-lasting finish that will withstand movement and humidity.

Face-Framing Beach Waves

Beach waves don’t just work at the beach. When transported to the city, they create an interesting contrast against perfectly put-together looks. Lucy Hale, queen of the wavy bobs, sports a modern take on beach waves--with soft, face-framing waves alternated with straighter strands.

If you have straight hair, you can recreate similar waves with a curling iron. Just make sure to take care of your hair if you heat-style it frequently. Try Sunsilk Damage Reconstruction Shampoo, which revives damaged, brittle hair.

Wispy Waves and Bangs

Short, wavy hair with bangs is a low-maintenance hairstyle that lets you embrace your hair’s textures while looking very “now.” Carey Mulligan’s youthful hairstyle features defined waves and wispy bangs. This messy look works well on soft hair that’s high in shine. To achieve this, try Sunsilk Naturals Sakura & Raspberry Radiance Shampoo, which brings out your hair’s natural shine.

A Short Wavy Bob and a Band

You can embrace your wavy hair even at glam, evening events. Take your cue from British-American actress Lucy Boynton, who accessorizes her messy waves with a headband of gems and giant pearls. To achieve this texture on your short hair, use TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hair Spray with mega-firm hold. It's a water-free formula that is fast drying and humidity-resistant for 24 hours.

Soft, Casual Waves 

For an easy, everyday look, try Kaia Gerber’s natural-looking waves, which gives her one-length bob movement and volume. If your hair is naturally wavy, embrace your hair’s texture and let it air dry. Simply tame frizz with Dove Amino Restore 1 Minute Serum Conditioner, which nourishes and repairs damaged hair from within and tames frizz with amino serum capsules.

A Wavy Pixie Cut

Brianna Hildebrand grew into a wavy pixie cut. The style features long waves on the top of the head. To rock this look, you’ll need lots of volume and texture. Volumize hair with Sunsilk Naturals Coconut Hydration Shampoo, which delivers intense hydration while making hair lightweight and bouncy. Sculpt your waves into smaller sections using hair wax.

Wavy hair is as versatile as they are fabulous. Whether you’re aiming to look elegant with structured waves or would rather be keeping your locks casual, there is a wavy hairstyle for you. With a little help of hair products and tools, you are just minutes away from rocking this chic look
