Short Curly Formal Hairstyle





Added: 7th June 2012
This wicked 'do is great for those with short to medium hair wanting a style that'll put all eyes on them. The back and one side is smoothed down and back, while the opposite side is dressed in well defined curls giving this look contrast and shape. This is perfect for those with fine to medium hair and will need product for hold and shine.

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.

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.

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.

6 . Apply Lacquer

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
