Description

The back and sides of this hairstyle is tapered into the head with minimal layers through the top styled over to the side for a chic look and feel. The bangs are combed to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all 'do brilliantly. Product is needed to keep this hairstyle is in place.

Our model looks gorgeous here in a sleek short hairstyle that brings her gorgeous facial features into the spotlight, and gives her a Mod look. She suits short hair well, due to her oval face shape and high cheekbones. She also looks best in styles with grown out bangs thanks to her high forehead. The tapered sides and back in this cut show off her face and neck nicely, while the sleek finish brings the focus up to her eyes. This ‘do works well with her hair type, which is fine and straight, and looks best in cuts that are styled with precision.The grown out fringe sits softly to the side creating a feminine finish while the other side has been clipper cut for some edge. This is an easy to manage hairstyle that has a Sixties Mod vibe to it, which will appeal to women with a chic fashion sense.

As for her color, our model has a fair, warm complexion, green eyes and naturally dark hair- as seen in her 'before' picture. Here she lightens up her locks immensely by going to a light golden blonde tone that looks fabulous with her complexion and eye color. This color adds extra style to her Mod 'do and is guaranteed to turn heads wherever she goes. It also adds the appearance of thickness to her fine hair. Ladies with brunette hair can rock blonde shades with perfection as long as it is the right tone, as demonstrated here.

Styling Steps

1. Part to the Left

Partleft

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.

2. Use a Large Radial Brush

Brushlarge

A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

3. Finger Dry the Back with Blow-dryer

Fingerdry

Use your blow-dryer and your fingers to dry the back of your hair by moving your hair around to allow the heat to pass through it.

4. Blow-dry the Crown

Crown

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

5. Blow-dry the Top Under to the Right

Toprightunder

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 right. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.

6. Blow-dry Right Side Forward

Sidesforwardright

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a forward and downward direction with your blow-dryer above. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly above.

7. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Bangsforwardrightbdry

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

8. Style Bangs to the Right Using Moulding Cream

Bangsforwardright

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Be careful not to use too much product as it can become sticky and clumpy.

9. Style Sides Down Using Moulding Cream

Sidesdown

Using a small amount of moulding cream, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go sparingly.

10. Style Sides Behind Ear Using Moulding Cream
