Short Sassy Hairstyle Tucked Behind Ear

Added: 08 Jul 2012
If you want to look cute and sassy simultaneously, you should try this look. This short hairstyle is one of the most valuable techniques to make your life happier. It consists of hair pulled back to the side and tucked behind the ears. Having tacked up it makes your face look brighter and adorable.

Our model is a beautiful and sassy lady wearing this look for the summer season. She has gotten her radiant yet natural-looking hair styled with some tucked behind the ear to make herself look more appealing. This short sassy hairdo is blow-waved smooth from the tip and one side pinned to the back to create an asymmetric look and feel. This hairstyle suits women with thin to medium hair density and medium hair texture. Generally, this hairstyle will work best for round and heart face shapes.

The best part of this short 'do with light blonde color with brunette highlights is that it can be done in minutes. It is one great way to give your hair a positive attitude without having to go out and spend a lot of money. It's also the perfect solution if you have damaged, brittle, or over-processed hair that needs strengthening. Short hair has become popular again thanks to celebrities like Nicole Kidman, who have been spotted sporting this style at various events. This simple yet sexy 'do is easy to maintain with regular trims every 4-6 weeks and needs a little product for hold and shine. Spray a little extra hairspray throughout to keep your locks straight all day.

Styling Steps

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

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.

step 4

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

step 5

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.

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 left. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.

step 7

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

step 8

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 9

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.
