Pro Suggestions For Short Hair Cut

Posted by HairLady on Wed, Apr 12th, 2006
Here are some techniques on how to cut your short hair as a professional stylist.

Wedged Bob Cut

  • It is great for curly hair, but with its short top layers, longer under layers, and blunt cut bangs, it's equally flattering for straight hair.
  • For a sleek wedge, apply an anti frizz balm to damp hair, then blow-dry while using a large round brush to straighten and smooth. 
  • For an extra-sleek look, finish with a flat iron.

Short Clip

  • It works regardless of hair's natural tendencies ' top layers that are razor-cut about four inches long, with shorter layers that add texture and lift by tapering down to the nape and sides. 
  • To enhance the texture further, apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair, then blow-dry while wrapping two-inch-wide sections of hair around a small round brush. 
  • Once hair is dry, wrap small sections around a curling iron for 30-60 seconds at a time.  When hair is cool, don't brush. 
  • Instead, smooth a dab of pomade through hair to define the waves.

Short Chop

  • It features two-three inch layers throughout the crown that get slightly shorter as they taper to the nape ' a fabulous way to add body to baby-fine hair. 
  • You can let it air-dry into place, or for extra oomph, work a lightweight gel through hair while it's damp, then blow-dry, using a small round brush to lift layers at the crown. 
  • Finish by working a bit of pomade through hair to separate and differentiate the layers.

The Crop

  • The shortest of the short cuts, the crop is the ultimate in providing manageability to every type of hair. 
  • The style is defined by fringy two-to-three-inch layers that taper very close to the nape.  Again, this is an ideal candidate for air-drying ' simply smooth or ruffle the layers, depending on your mood, and go!
  • But it can also be blow-dried for a more polished look. 
  • Smooth mousse through damp hair, then blow-dry, using your fingers to direct hair into place. 
  • Brush the bangs to one side, then apply a dab of pomade to your fingertips and direct the sidepieces on and around your face.
