Looking at celebrities, fashionistas and influencers, it looks like there are two big trends for spring and summer hair. Of course there is the tousled, disheveled elegance of the beach wave, as textured hair makes its long-awaited return. But we are also seeing short hair make its comeback. We can thank Michelle Williams, Rooney Mara, and Ginnifer Goodwin for the genesis, yet short hair is where one can be most creative, so no need to copy their styles too much.
Instead, get your own expressive shape, like the one above. A freeform razor-cut, it is a short and textured lived-in look boasting an almost kinetic feel. With heavy undercutting asymmetry, a textured fringe that swooshes from one side to the other, the hair seems in perpetual motion.
Step: This style is pure ‘wash and wear.’ It’s all about using favorite products to attain your favorite aesthetic.
Step: For more contrast and movement –– and a low-glow matte finish –– switch to cream wax and use it to tousle the shape.
Step: You can push the boundaries of shampooing with short hair. Leave hair without wet shampoo for a few days and try Refinish dry shampoo instead. It cleans without water, adds grittiness, texture and volume instantly.
