Ashleigh Banfield Short Straight     Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

Ashleigh pulled off a great look at the Christopher Reeve First Amendment Award and the 2006 Spotlight Awards ceremonies with this casual, short flicked 'do. Her hair was graduated up through the back to longer lengths at her top, and soft flicks were added at the back to create lots of texture. Her top section was left smoother and styled to fall from her side part for a sassy finish. This is a great look for oval and longer face shapes and the texture through the ends is perfect for thick hair as it will thin the hair out.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

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.


2. Part to the Left

step 2

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.


3. Use a Small Radial Brush

step 3

A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.


4. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

step 4

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.


5. Blow-dry the Top Under to the Left

step 5

Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the left. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.


6. Blow-dry the Top Under to the Right

step 6

Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the right. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.


7. Style the Back Out Using Moulding Cream

step 7

Using moulding cream and your fingers grab the mid-lengths of your hair and then drag it out and upwards for a full and messy result.


8. Lift Roots Using Moulding Cream

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.


9. Use Moulding Cream for Texture

step 9

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.
