TREND ALERT!

How To Style A Chic Short Cut…

Cropped coifs are killing it right now (like the cute cut shown here)! More and more women are going bold with layered pixies, eye-catching undercuts and fantastic Bald Fades. To get the info on this haute trend we chatted with stylist Tiffany Pretty, of T. Pretty Hair Studio in Bowie, MD, to find out how you can rock this hit mane move!

WHY SHORT HAIR IS TRENDING: I think short hair is trendy right now because it’s easy for the average woman to keep up with. When you have a really good, professional haircut it’s effortless to maintain in between salon visits.
COLOR CUES: Color and a cut go together perfectly! With a little hint of color the cut looks edgier and it really makes the overall mane pop

KEEP IN MIND: Angles and texture really matter in a good snip. The way you cut the strands can make or break the finished look.

PRODUCTS TO TRY:
—Styling foam helps hair shine and really makes the tresses lay. It’s a great product to create the foundation for any short style.
Wax hair stick can help hold the curl without making it oily while controlling frizz and making a look last.
—Thermal straightening system helps with extra frizz control, shine and the finished look will be polished and pliable.
