Added: 26th February 2014
The back and sides of this short 'do are cropped short and smoothed down for a neat and tidy finish, while the longer top length is teased to create lift and height for a bold look and feel. This cool hairstyle is best suited for those wanting a head-turning style for any occasion.

Tease
1 . 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.

Backdown
2 . 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.

Sidesdown
3 . 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.

Topspikes
4 . Spike Top Using Wax

Apply wax to your fingertips, then grab a small section of hair and rub the wax in before twisting and pulling your hair upwards. Repeat in each new section. For longer lasting spikes use a generous amount of hard wax.

Bangsup
5 . Style Bangs Straight Up Using Wax

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingers, then starting at your roots, apply the wax as you drag your hair in an upwards motion.

Hairsprayfinishing
6 . 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.
