Melora Hardin Short Curly Hairstyle - Medium Blonde
Melora Hardin goes for full on body and volume with this short curly ‘do. This hairstyle is a good option for women who want to enhance their short ‘do with some extra style and glamor. Melora’s straight hair has been smoothed across the forehead in the front while the top layers have been curled into tight corkscrew curls. Melora’s oblong face shape is flattered by the texture of this ‘do, while the long side-swept fringe adds some coverage to her high, broad forehead.
As for the color, Melora goes for a light buttery blonde tone with darker blonde underlayers for a natural look. This color combo is an excellent choice for her golden-based complexion and blue eyes. The darker underlayers help to tone the overall color down and give Melora a more natural-looking finish than an all over blonde color.
Melora Hardin is an American actress and singer, who is best known for her role as Jan Levinson on The Office.

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 Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off
Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.
3 . Use a Curling Iron on the Front and Sides
Starting at the front, take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.
4 . 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.
5 . Wax Hair Down at the Back
Apply some wax to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look. Pinch clumps of hair in different directions for a messier result.
6 . Wax Side Behind Ear
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.
7 . Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax
Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.
8 . 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.
