Tyra Banks Short Straight Formal Hairstyle

Added: 9th August 2015
The sides and back of this short style are tapered into the head maintaining a clean finish to the edges, while the top is smoothed down to frame the top of the face for a fabulous look and feel. This hairdo is great to complement a long face and is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks. Product is needed to for gloss and shine.

Tyra Banks is the queen of looking ‘fierce’ and here is no exception. Being a supermodel, Tyra can pretty much pull off any hairstyle with ease. Over the years she has experimented with long, short, curly and straight ‘dos. Here, she is sporting a head-turning bowl cut that has an Eighties retro feel to it. Tyra has a wide, broad forehead which looks great when camoflauged by a thick fringe as seen here. The tapered sides keep all the focus on Tyra’s striking cat eyes and high cheekbones, making this the ideal, fashion-forward short ‘do for her.

Tyra has a warm complexion and bring green eyes, which allow her to pull off both dark and light hair colors. Here, she blends both with a mocha brown base and golden blonde highlights throughout. This gives her ‘do added depth and breaks the color up for more dimension.

Tyra Banks is a former supermodel, an American television personality, former talk show host, producer, author, actress and business woman.




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 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.

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.

4 . 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.
