Go Short: Rock it like a Celeb
Looking for the inspiration to go short? Look no further than
Hollywood. The looks vary but one thing they all have in common that
they all rock sexy for an active lifestyle: one very much like yours.
Thinking you want something you can wash and run? That’s possible to
achieve, but to take an additional 5 minutes with some star worthy
styling products will have you ready to walk the red carpet in no time!
Below, for your consideration, are some of Hollywood’s elite rocking the
short hairstyles, and easy instructions on how they do it.
Even though Ann Hathaway does not feel she’s very pretty, to look at her
you do not doubt it for a moment. Rocking her tomboy look by day to her
all out glam at night, her hair moves easily from one scene to the next,
thanks to her basic shoulder length cut. During the day, a spritz and a
blow dry with a round brush has her looking polished. Getting ready for
the evening involves taking medium size Velcro rollers and wrapping the
hair in 1 inch sections. After 20 minutes, the hair is sprayed with a
lightweight strong holding spray, curlers are removed, and a gentle
shake of the head has her heading out the door.
Very few can rock as short as Halle Berry, sporting a pixie look that
has been razor cut on the ends. It then takes a layered cut to achieve
her sexy messy. Always begin with a moisturizing shampoo followed by a
deep conditioner. This keeps the hair smooth and frizz free. Towel dry
and apply a mixture of equal parts of styling gel and straightening
balm. Working from the roots to the ends, this will provide long lasting
hold. Next, blow dry your hair in sections. Start from the bottom up.
Using clips, section off the hair and dry. Using a round brush, dry the
back first, rolling the hair on the brush. Do this on your entire head.
When you are done, your hair should be big and full and sticking out
everywhere. Now, you will apply cream pomade to small sections of your
hair, working it in and bending the hair in whichever direction you wish
it to go. To finish, apply a light shining spray. Go easy on this as it
can make hair appear greasy.
Jennifer Love Hewitt rocks a bob like no one else. A classic cut, she
updates it quickly with bang trims. A must do rocking the bob. You want
the bangs skimming the eyes for that sultry bedroom look. Hair in the
eyes is a totally different look! Jennifer keeps her dark locks
glistening with a color enhancing shampoo. An anti –frizz serum keeps
the look from going bushy. Kate Perry’s edgy textured look is also
achieved with styling products. Spraying your hair with a dry shampoo
adds lift and texture. A flat iron achieves the bang look Perry sports.
Check out the cut of the bangs. Can you trust your stylist to rock this
look? If not, take your time and do it yourself!
