Short Straight Casual Hairstyle





Added: 8th January 2014
This cool 'do is tapered down to the nape, while the top and sides are jagged cut to achieve a wispy finish all over. This look is perfect to compliment a long face and needs product to pinch put the ends. Regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain this shape.

1 . 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.

2 . 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.

3 . Flatten the Top Using Wax

Apply wax to the palms of your hands, and then starting at the top-back area, drag your hands forward, flattening your hair down as you go. For a wetter look use more 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.

5 . 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.
