Short Straight Formal Hairstyle





Added: 2nd December 2010
The sides and back are neatly cut close to the head blending into the top jagged cut layers which gives the over-all style plenty of movement and texture. This versatile hairstyle is perfect for those with long face shapes and will need regular trims to maintain shape.

Using a small amount of gel-wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For a more textured, grungy look, use more gel-wax while pinching the ends as you go.

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.
