Short Uniform Layered Brunette Waves

Added: 18 Dec 2013
A long hairstyle is timeless and famous, but sometimes you want something a little shorter. Short layers and an undercut are great options, especially when adding some volume without wearing it up (which can get messy). Plus, layers have a little more personality than just straight hair. A short, layered haircut is perfect for a casual look. The bangs add interest and volume to your face without creating a stiff, messy look. These uniform layers are cut all over this brunette mane to achieve a well-balanced style best suited to frame a round face. These short layered brunette waves are cut down the middle and have a side-parted look. The hair is lightly layered with shorter layers on both sides to create an updated version of the classic layered look but with short hair.

Scissor-cut razor cuts are used for this type of hairstyle. This casual look is great for those with fine to medium hair wanting a low-fuss style that is easy to manage with regular trims. Only a tiny amount of product is needed for shine and hold. Short hairstyles are perfect for summer, but you want to make sure when your tresses are more straightforward, that they are still pretty and look put together. Short and layered hairstyles are the easiest way to achieve this look. The best part of this style is that it can work on just about any hair length; if your ends aren't long enough, use a flat iron to get them even longer!

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 the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

step 3

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 4

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

step 5

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.
