Sometimes when people have short hair you automatically think it just needs washing and drying as there not much to do with it but your wrong there is so many popular styles that you can create with a pair of straighteners even on short hair, all you need is the right pair of straighteners.  

The straighteners that will be suitable for you your short hair come in sizes smaller than 1 inch, and they’re best for your short hair as well as hair that require you to get very close to the scalp. This works for both thick and fine short hair.

Short, fine hair requires you to be able to control the amount of heat you are putting on it, so smaller plates are better.

Thick hair that’s short often requires slow movement and consistent heat which can be better controlled with small plates.

Ultimate Review Guide 2018 - Top 5 Hair Straighteners for Short Hair - Comparison Table


Product Summary - 

One thing I automatically liked about the C3 straighteners is the wide array of zany patterns and colours you can choose from.

Especially the Corioliss C3 Rose Gold Hair Straightener looks very stylish and professional. 

The lightweight and slimline design of the straightener is very easy to handle.

The extra-long plates allow for bigger sections of hair to be styled in one go, which could easily reduce your average styling time by half.

I would recommend these straighteners to pretty much everyone with any type of short hair- the broad range of temperatures mean that the straighteners are suitable for practically every hair type- no matter how fine or thick.
