This bold 'do is cut short through the sides and back still allowing length for flicks and texture, blending into the to jagged cut layers which add height and texture to the crown. The front is smoothed down and swept over to the side to form this brilliant shape which is best suited for those looking for a "loud" hairstyle to turn heads.

Styling Steps

1 . Style the Back Out Using Moulding Cream

Using moulding cream and your fingers grab the mid-lengths of your hair and then drag it out and upwards for a full and messy result.

2 . Style Sides Down Using Moulding Cream

Using a small amount of moulding cream, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go sparingly.

3 . Spike Top Using Moulding Cream

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips, then grab a small section of hair and rub the moulding cream into the roots before twisting and pulling your hair upwards. For messier spikes, use a generous amount of moulding cream while twisting your hair in different directions.

4 . Use Moulding Cream for Texture

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. Pinch the clumps in different directions for a messier look.

5 . Lift Roots Using Moulding Cream

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for added body. Be sure not to use too much moulding cream at the roots as this can result in a glugy and thick uncomfortable feel.

6 . Style Bangs to the Left Using Moulding Cream

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the left as you go. Be careful not to use too much product as it can become sticky and clumpy.

7 . Apply Lacquer

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
