Markie Post Short Straight Hairstyle - Dark Blonde
Markie Post looks trendy and chic here in a layered, short ‘do. This hairstyle is ideal for her thin hair type as it adds volume and body throughout, especially in the crown area. This lifts the focus upwards and makes her face appear more oval. The long wispy fringe is another good feature for square faces, which benefitsfrom layers around the eyes and cheekbones, in addition to some forehead coverage. To minimize a square jaw line, flipped out layered ends are a great way to add softness to this area.
Markie has a warm, tanned skin tone and bright blue eyes. This makes her suited to golden brown and blonde hair colors as well as red tones. Here she has opted for a multi-tonal look with a golden brown base with beige and golden highlights throughout. This gives her hair color an all over warm, but not brassy, finish.
Markie Post is an American actress who is best known for her roles in The Fall Guy and Night Court.

1 . Apply Mousse
Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
2 . Use a Medium Radial Brush
A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back
Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.
4 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides
To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.
5 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
6 . Piece the Ends Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
7 . 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.
