Short Red Textured Waves

Added: 19 Jul 2012
Short red textured waves on the sides and back are an excellent way to go for summer hair. If you are unsure about your current look, keep in mind that curling your hair is an option. Also, whether you want long or short hair, you can immediately break free from the everyday routine if that makes you happy.

This short hairstyle with textured waves is convenient for those who want a hairstyle that will make them look more attractive. It also offers a simple yet beautiful appearance seeing that it is fairly short. This short red mane is dressed in textured waves all through the sides and back to create this funky 'do best suited to complement a long face. Think of this hairstyle as a bit of a throwback to the 80s. It's got the body, is easy to manage, and works on almost anyone. This textured style looks good on anyone who doesn't wear their hair short all the time.

It is for all women with fine or medium hair thickness with a natural wave pattern. When your hair is at the right length, you will have a lot of body and movement. If you have thick hair, this hairstyle will work best if you find a stylist who can blend the waves into your locks while they apply the product evenly throughout. If you have hair that is on the finer side, it's easier to apply by yourself. But remember that vacuuming/spinning and then applying products will get results faster than using your hands. This hairstyle is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and products and will need regular trims to maintain shape.

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 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 3

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.


step 4

Starting from the back, take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed.


step 5

Starting at the front, take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.


step 6

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


step 7

Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.


step 8

Apply some hard wax to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for soft volume.


step 9

To finish the look, apply wax to your fingertips, making sure to smooth the wax over all of your fingers, then simply pinch the wax onto the ends of your hair, applying as much or as little as needed.


step 10

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.
