Calling all cropped-locks cuties: we’ve rounded up our three
new fave styles for short hair, just in time for spring dance season. Whether
you’re rocking a lob, bob or pixie, we’ve got a gorge ‘do just for you.
If you have a…longish
pixie like Julianne Hough
Julianne’s mass of curls softens up her edgy ‘do—perfect for
a fancy affair.
1. On damp hair, apply a
little bit of curling gel and blow dry in the product to keep hair in
2. Once completely dried,
gently curl hair with a 3/4-inch barrel curling iron. Make sure to hold
curling iron in different directions to get gorgeous curls.
3. Gently twist, tuck and pin
back curls to create a cohesive, not crazy style—sort of in a Mohawk
fashion. Perfect for showing off the wavy texture.
4. Lastly, spray your hair
with your fave hairspray and rake your fingers through to loosen things
