Description

This short laid-back messy red hairstyle with a long top is undoubtedly a good idea if you want to keep it simple and stylish. It is a perfect look for the day when you spend less time in front of the mirror and more time relaxing on the sofa. Cool and casual is what this hot red 'do is about. The back and sides are clipper cut close to the head while the top length is left longer and jagged, making it easy to style out for texture and movement. A short haircut is perfect for those who don't have time to blow dry their hair every morning. It is also an easy way to look smart and put together. This short, laid-back messy red 'do is great for women with medium/thin hair and oval, oblong or square face shapes. The hairstyle requires a fine/medium texture that can be maintained by daily styling with a misting spray. The color is a soft, warm red shade perfect for those with blonde or strawberry highlights in their natural brown hair. This laid-back style is excellent for those with fine to medium hair who need regular trims to maintain shape. There are many ways to style your hair, and this hairstyle takes the least time and effort. Spritz on some hair spray, then tie it off with a rubber band. Gently tease the roots, and flip the top up and back away from the face. Brush through and add a little bit of product to give it texture.

Styling Steps


1. Apply Moisturizer

step 1

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.


2. Part to the Left

step 2

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. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers

step 3

Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.


4. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 4

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


5. Apply Hairspray

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.
