Short Wavy Formal Hairstyle





Added: 9th December 2010
This tidy brown 'do sits neatly showing off the short sides and back which is easily tamed with a little wax or moulding gum. The top is jagged cut to add height and lift which makes it best suited for those with round face shapes.

To finish the look, apply wax to your fingertips, making sure to smooth the wax over all of your fingers, then simply pinch the wax onto the ends of your hair, applying as much or as little as needed.

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.
