Description

Two words sum this style up: short and sexy. It's an easy look to re-create with just a little product, and it's perfect for those who don't have time to fuss around with hair brushes. The back is cut very short for a balanced look, and the sides are also cut short to blend in with the textured top layers.

Styling Steps

1. Style Hair Down at the Back Using Moulding Cream

Backdown

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then pull it through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a textured look.

2. Style the Left Side Forward and Wispy Using Moulding Cream

Sidesforwardwispyleft

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingers and then pinch the ends on the left hand side of your style down and forward for face-framing texture.

3. Style the Right Side Forward and Wispy Using Moulding Cream

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingers and then pinch the ends on the right hand side of your style down and forward for face-framing texture.

4. Flatten the Top Using Moulding Cream

Topsmoothforward

Apply moulding cream to the palms of your hands, and then starting at the top-back area, drag your hands forward, flattening your hair down as you go. For a longer lasting style repeat this step.

5. Style Bangs Forward Using Moulding Cream

Bangsforward

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs to the ends for hold and texture.

6. Apply Smoothing Shine

Smoothingshinefinishing

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.

7. Apply Lacquer

Lacquerfinishing

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
