Keke Palmer Short Wavy Hairstyle - Black
Keke Palmer looks glamorous and chic here in a short undercut ‘do that is full of texture and body. Keke’s sides and back have been cut short while the top layers have been left long and layered. This ‘do looks fabulous with her oval face shape and high rounded forehead. Keke is usually a fan of longer tresses but this short ‘do works well for her and shows off her facial features way better than long hair. This hairstyle can be worn sleek and smooth or wild and wavy as seen here, providing Keke with versatility and style.
Keke has a medium complexion with golden undertones as hazel eyes. She could pull off golden brown and blonde shades as well as her natural black color, as seen here. This jet black shade makes a nice contrast with her warm skin tone and brings out her light eyes. It also gives her hair a shiny, healthy looking finish.
Keke Palmer is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and television personality.

- Styling Tip: Spray a small amount of hairspray at the roots and ends to keep this style full and shaped for longer.
1 . Apply Moisturizer
Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
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 Large Curling Iron
A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.
4 . 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.
5 . 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.
6 . 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.
7 . Style Sides Down Using Wax
Using a small amount of wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward, pinching motion. For added texture, apply more pinching and more wax.
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.
