7 Short Straight Hairstyles Perfect for Singapore's Hot and Rainy Weather

Published on Apr 21, 2021

Straight hair is not dead, at least not in Singapore. 

As much as curls may look feminine and cute, the accompanying frizz makes it a lot harder to manage especially when the weather turns hot and rainy during this time of year. It is hence no surprise that straight is the preferred state of hair for many of us. 

But with the heat turning up these few months, we're looking to chop off our mane and get rid of the weight of our hair. 

But what hairstyle can we go for that are short, straight and trendy all at the same time? 

Read on to find out!

1. Blunt Bob


Mention short and straight and the first hairstyle we'd think of is the classic Blunt Bob.

4. Concave Bob


Bobs have the power of making your face look slimmer if your hairstylist designs the length to meet at the right place.

To make concave bobs look good though, your hair should ideally be straight and frizz-free.

Frizz will tend to make your hair poof up and change the intended shape of the bob cut.

Going for a treatment like Tokio Inkarami can therefore possibly reduce the frizz and add a shine to your newly cut concave bob.

5. Bob with Undercut


For ladies who want to make a bold statement or simply need to shave time off blowdrying, try an undercut.

It's a badass hairstyle that will keep you looking and feeling cool throughout the day.

7. Pixie Cut


Pixies are a classic short cut because of how cute they make you look. People often think that getting super short cuts make you look less feminine, but they are actually very flattering and can enhance your facial features when done correctly.

If you're worried about going too short, opt for a more Japanese style pixie with softer cuts and longer fringe.
