Just because you’re rocking short lengths doesn’t mean you get to miss out on all the fun of a voluminous coif! Our proof: the tall-standing rear crown on this abbreviated crop!

Here, tailored sides blossom to new heights to give this silhouette a decidedly fierce profile. This look’s secret is strategic backcombing—an “old school” technique involving a fine-tooth comb and holding spray. Here, two-inch sections were “teased” along the roots with the comb then misted with holding spray to hold the height. Top layers of the hair were then softly combed over smooth to create the seamless effect over the newly elevated silhouette.
