Looking at this style… when you are in search for transitioning hairstyles for short hair you can already tell that this style is the bomb! I think it’s effortless and pretty at the same time.

What you have to master in order to get this style is to have  a good leave in conditioner and some curl rods in order to curl the ends of your hair.

The flat twist at the front section add’s a unique sense of style and for this style i would say less is more.

So accessorize your hair by using bobby pins and minimum jewelry like some pearl stud earrings.

The Braid me flexi Transitioning style

Flexirods are really good for curling the ends of your hair especially now that you are transitioning because the ends of your hair is straight.

The braids will mix things up and create a sense of agreement between your curls and your chemically processed hair.

Make sure your hair is clean (washed well and free from build up) and properly prepared, meaning well moisturized in order to get a long lasting style.

The Corntrow Bun Styled Queen!13 Trendy transitioning hairstyles for short hair

We talked earlier about how buns are a great way to style your transitioning hair but here is a combo of two awesome styles. Transitioning hairstyles for short hair without cornrows are incomplete!

Cornrows with a bun! Part your hair into four or five sections as you see above and cornrow each section following by securing them with a bobby pin.

This way the ends of each section remain un-braided for a fuller look on your bun.

Complete this look applying your favorite gel at the edges and why not on the cornrows and cover it with a satin scarf.

The end results will amaze you!

The Curly straight puffy Style!

Because not everyone is comfortable with heat free styles this will totally make you fall in love.

I am a length lover, that means i always want to see my hair length and the progress i’m doing. Although most transitioning hairstyles for short hair are not heat based.

With some of this styles it’s impossible to know how well your hair is growing.. here comes the heat (use with caution tho!).

Straighten your hair in order to blend both textures using a blow dryer or a flat iron for better results.

Bump the ends to create a curly look and part the top part into a loose ponytail.

You can’t go wrong with this style!

The “Oh What do i do” Curly Style

If you ran out of styling options you can always use perm rods to create a curly look that will serve your needs of the moment.

This will work best for short hair but medium to long hair can also turn out great!
