Mini straighteners are perfect for short hair, fringes, bobs or to use as travel hair straighteners
To straighten short hair you need smaller straighteners. This is because if the plates are too wide they won’t be able to fully grasp sections of the hair. It will also be more difficult to straighten the hair from the root. You have far more control with smaller blades which allow you to get to the roots easily. Mini straighteners or travel straighteners are normally ideal for women with shorter hair or fringes. Many of the top brands such as ghd, BaByliss and Toni & Guy designed their mini straighteners with short haired women in mind. If your hair is thin or short a 1 inch ceramic plate is enough to be able to straighten your hair from the root. I have researched the best straighteners for short hair in the UK.
