4 DIY Hairstyles For Cropped Cuts

Any woman who has ever contemplated chopping off her hair has probably asked herself this question: “Will I be stuck wearing the same style every day?” The answer is nope! Although it’s hard to find short hair ideas when you’re, say, flipping through the pages of a magazine, cute (and easy!) options do exist.
For proof, we enlisted the help of hair guru Adam Maclay to show us how to create four fresh looks in the comfort of your own home. The tutorial was a real eye opener for Katelyn Kappel, our model for this story. “At my current length, I've always felt like it wasn't long enough to do much. I’m amazed at how many looks we were able to create,” she says. Not only are these chic styles fast, but you can whip them up with stuff you already own, such as bobby pins, hairspray, a rattail comb, and a flat iron. Who says long-haired girls have more fun?
