Description

The back and sides of this short sassy 'do is tapered into the head blending into the top layers that are swept to the side for shape and style. The front is swept across the forehead to soften the face and completes the over-all look brilliantly. Product is needed to keep this style in place and regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks.

Cynthia Nixon is looking gorgeous and sassy here in a short hairstyle. This style is flattering to her features as the side swept fringe helps to balance out the length of her face and the asymmetrical styling helps to keep a focus on her best feature -her bright, expressive blue eyes. Cynthia's petite facial features are complimented by this short 'do and her wispy swept bangs focus the attention front and center. Wispy ends complete this look and give her a chic, modern finish.

Cynthia's natural color is a dark ash blonde but she has always flaunted rich red and bright blonde tones instead, which go great with her cool complexion and light blue-green eyes. Here, she goes for a natural looking honey blonde base with lighter highlights throughout. This gives her an overall soft blonde with a hint of warmth that flatters her skin tone and brings out her eyes while creating dimension and interest to her cut.

Cynthia Ellen Nixon is an American actress, known for her portrayal of Miranda Hobbes in the HBO series Sex and the City, for which she won the 2004 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Gel to Roots

Gelroots

Make sure that your hair is damp and then apply gel to your fingers and rub it into your roots to achieve maximum hold.

2. Part to the Left

Partleft

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 Medium Radial Brush

Brushmedium

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Left

Bangsforwardleft

To blow-dry your bangs to the side, clip the back and side sections up, leaving just your bangs out. Place your brush beneath your bangs, holding your hair to the side and remembering to hold the tension between your hair and brush. With your blow-dryer on a low setting, apply heat by starting at the roots and make sure to stretch your hair out to the ends. Repeat until your hair is dry.

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

Backflicks

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.

6. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

Sidesflicks

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.

7. Blow-dry the Crown

Crown

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

8. Style Bangs to the Left Using Wax

Bangsforwardleft

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.

9. Style Sides Out Using Wax

Sidesout

To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. Be careful not to overdo that wax or your result will be a flat and limp style.

10. Wax the Back of Hair Out

Backout

Using wax and your fingers grab the mid-lengths of your hair and then drag it out and upwards for a full and messy result. Remember not to overdo the wax or your result will be a flat and greasy style.

11. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
