Short Curly Formal Shag Hairstyle - Light Blonde (Platinum)
Our model looks stylish here in a short curly hairstyle. This cut is ideal for ladies who want to work with their hair’s natural texture rather than against it. She has an oval face and wide-set eyes which are nicely framed by this ‘do. She also has a high, broad forehead that is camouflaged well by the layers around her eyes that create a fringe. Her strong cheekbones are also enhanced by this short curly ‘do. This hairstyle would look gorgeous blow-dried sleek and straight for a different look that would still flatter her face shape, but looks great in curls for a chic, eye-catching look.
Our model's color is another stand-out feature of this hairdo. Having a fair, cool complexion, she suits light beige and icy white tones the best. Here she opts for a white Nordic blonde that works well with her eye color and complexion. The texture of this haircut is nicely set off by the color and completes her look brilliantly. Regular toning treatments are needed to keep this color looking fresh and to reduce brassy tones.

- Styling Tip: Use a medium curling iron to create this look in straight or wavy hair.
1 . Apply Gel Spray to Roots
Hold the gel spray no closer than 3 inches from your hair and then evenly mist the gel spray into the roots to create a stronger hold style. Gel spray will hold well and will not look wet or weigh the hair down. Using your gel spray in this fashion will create added hold and a longer lasting style.
2 . Blow-dry in Messy Circular Movements Using Fingers
Using a blow-dryer on a low heat setting, use the palm of your hand and fingers in slow circular movements to dry off the hair and to create a disorganized effect.
3 . Use a Medium Curling Iron
A medium curling iron is used to create medium sized curls.
4 . Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron
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 mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.
5 . Tease Hair
Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.
6 . Style Bangs Forward Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs pinching the ends as you go to create a feathered, textured effect.
7 . Style Sides Out Using Wax
To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. Be careful not to overdo that wax or your result will be a flat and limp style.
