Added: 10 Mar 2011
This short, straight hairstyle is excellent for a casual look on days when you don't need to do much. With just a little product and some time to style, your hair will look and feel amazing. This light blonde 'do is an excellent choice for those who want an easy-to-style, short-length hairstyle that is flattering and attractive.

Our model perfectly flaunts this light blonde hairdo with smoky eyes and minimalistic makeup. This light blonde hairdo perfectly complements her facial features, and is perfect for adding a little spice to your look. For this hair styling, the back of this gorgeous short hairstyle is graduated to add shape, blending right through to the sides and top. The top hair layers are swept over to one side to allow the front to be worn as bangs, softening the overall style beautifully. The hairstyle is created with a scissor cut, with all hair layers short and the bangs parted. The hair is parted down the right in a diagonal sense, and left long behind. This haircut suits women with long, oval, square, and diamond face shapes. Also, it suits very thin or medium hair densities, and fine to medium hair texture.

Bring out the inner beauty in your face shape by keeping it simple and easy, classically elegant, and effortless. The sharp edges give a modern edge to this hairstyle, which is easy to maintain. This trendy short hairdo is a great stylish look for any occasion. Regular trimming after 4 to 6 weeks helps you to avoid split ends and maintain the shape of this hairdo. Also, this style will give you natural shine and volume.

Styling Steps

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.

step 2

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 3

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 4

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 5

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 6

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 7

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.
