If you have a more natural looking red hair hue, check out Karen Gillan’s gorgeous peachy pink palette. These shades will look great on fair and medium complexions with pink undertones. Karen has started with a warm apricot eye shadow and rich brown eyeliner to make her eyes pop, smudging the corners out for a cool cat’s eye effect. Her cheeks look rosy with a soft coral blush on the apples, and her lips have just a hint of earthy pink on them that makes them look natural yet noticeable. This is a fresh, youthful look that is sure to make you glow.

This short and sassy 'do is tapered down through the back while the sides are kept long enough to sweep up and around the ears. The top length is jagged cut to allow for shape and texture and making this style a great look to balance out a round face. Product is needed to pinch through the ends and regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks.

Styling Steps

1 . Style Hair Down at the Back Using Moulding Cream

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then pull it through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a textured look.

2 . Style Sides Behind Ear Using Moulding Cream

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.

3 . 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.

4 . Apply Hairspray

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
