The back and sides of this short fancy 'do is tapered into the head while the top is jagged cut and parted on the side for a fab look and feel. The razor cut bangs are pinched down with product to frame the top of the face and completes this hairstyle magnificently. This look is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks.

Jennifer Hudson loves a good short and chic ‘do like the one seen here. Although she experiments with her cut often, Jennifer has been keeping it short for a while and with good reason- this length is ideal for her oblong face shape and strong jawline, not to mention her straight hair texture. Jennifer’s locks have been jagged cut to create a cute pixie-style fringe in the front while the rest of the hair has been texturized and styled with a messy windblown feel to it. This ‘do brings the focus to her fabulous facial features- especially her eyes. With minimal styling time required, this hairstyle is ideal for a busy lady like Jennifer.

Jennifer is not one to experiment with her hair color often but she doesn’t really need to; her jet black locks look amazing with her warm medium skin tone and dark eyes. This color gives her hair a healthy, glossy sheen and shows off her gorgeous cut.

Jennifer Hudson is an American singer, actress and spokesperson. She rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol.

Styling Steps

1. Style Hair Down at the Back Using Moulding Cream


Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then pull it through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a textured look.

2. Style Sides Down Using Moulding Cream


Using a small amount of moulding cream, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go sparingly.

3. Style Bangs Forward Using Moulding Cream


Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs to the ends for hold and texture.

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.
