Description

Chic and edgy are the main ideas of this hairstyle. The sides and back of this short 'do are tapered closely into the head while the top is longer and jagged cut to the side for a textured look and feel. The bangs are swept across the forehead to soften the face and completes the over-all hairstyle brilliantly. Regular trims are needed every 4-6 weeks to maintain this shape.

Styling Steps

1. Part to the Right

Partright

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.

2. Finger Dry the Back with Blow-dryer

Fingerdry

Use your blow-dryer and your fingers to dry the back of your hair by moving your hair around to allow the heat to pass through it.

3. Use a Small Radial Brush

Brushsmall

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. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Sidesunder

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. Style Hair Down at the Back Using Gel

Backdown

Apply some some gel to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look.

8. Style Bangs to the Left Using Gel

Bangsforwardleft

Apply gel to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the left as you go.

9. Style Side Behind Ear Using Gel

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

10. Apply Gel Spray

To finish, evenly mist gel spray around the top, sides and back to create a lasting style.
