Short Black Asymmetrical Hairstyle With Waves And Pink Highlights

Added: 10 Nov 2010
You can never go wrong with a short haircut, especially when you're in need of a change. This hairstyle is anything but boring and gives you an edgy street look that will remind you of those hard-to-place bands or celebrities you used to follow in your youth. This hairstyle is perfect for any occasion. It is great for a day out or just leaving the house. The wavy black hair with pink highlights keeps this look natural and chic.

Our model is wearing this short wavy black hairstyle with pink highlights, a pink top, eye shadow and thick mascara. Her lips are hot pink colored and the rest of her makeup is effortlessly flaunting her funky vibes! Flamboyant is what best describes this bold hairstyle. The back is tapered into the neck for shape and style while the sides are cut unevenly for an asymmetric look. The wicked highlights work well with this style to add contrast and spice for a brilliant finish. This lovely medium/coarse hairstyle is ideal if you have a round face shape and find it difficult to style and maintain. This gorgeous hairstyle makes your oval, oblong or square face look attractive because it highlights the cheeks. It is a perfect option for women who want to add some flair to their hair. It has pink highlights and lightened ends to highlight the face, leaving a more sophisticated finish.

This elegant hairstyle adds a touch of grace and sophistication to any head of hair. The long, thick layers define the face while the soft curls and pink highlights create silky soft volume at the ends. Maintain this look with regular trims every 4 to 6 weeks depending on your hair growth. Using products with a strong hold will help to keep this style in place.

Styling Steps

step 1

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

step 2

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

step 3

A medium hot roller is used to give your hair looser curls and can also be used for body.

step 4

Take a section of hair from the front of your head no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets the top of your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Continue this step until a row of hot rollers has been applied along the very top of your head. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

step 5

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

step 6

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

step 7

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. Pinch the clumps in different directions for a messier look.

step 8

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for added body. Be sure not to use too much moulding cream at the roots as this can result in a glugy and thick uncomfortable feel.

step 9

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.
