One side of this short jagged cut is tucked behind the ear leaving the opposite side out with the top parted on the side for a fantastic look and feel. This casual hairstyle is easy to maintain with regular trims and needs product to pinch through all over.

Selenis Leyva looks trendy and chic here in a short layered ‘do. This hairstyle is cut to sculpt around her face and create a frame for the eyes and cheekbones. Selenis has a combination oval-square face shape which is perfectly suited to a short haircut. The jagged side swept fringe not only diminishes any squareness in her face but it also gives her some nice forehead coverage. The ear length layers are just right for her and create a gorgeous face-framing look. Her fine, straight hair texture gets a boost of volume from the layers on the top which are styled to create extra height and body in her hair.

Selenis has a medium-dark complexion and dark eyes that work with both cool and warm hair colors. Here she is sporting an inky black tone that makes her eyes pop. This shade gives her hair a shiny, glossy finish and is a great match for her skin tone.

Selenis Leyva is a Cuban-Dominican-American actress, known for her role in Orange is the New Black.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer


Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

2. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off


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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Wax Side Behind Ear


Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.

6. Lift Roots Using Wax


Apply some hard wax to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for soft volume.

7. Style Bangs to the Left Using Wax


Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the left as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.

8. 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.
