Get Shorty

Short hair can make you feel like a new person but, as Audry Hepburn proves in Roman Holiday, making it work is all about getting a great cut.

Paul Edmonds shares his wisdom on the art of short hair, “You got to get the structure, length and thickness right for your face shape. At the same time making sure you consider the direction of the hair growth and thickness at the hairlines is key. Regular cuts are essential but in-between cuts there are a couple of things you can do.”

 1. Morning Crazy Hair.

Wet it in the morning (as sleeping will set it in a particular direction) no need to shampoo everyday but you could rinse with conditioner to ensure that you keep that gloss. If you haven’t got time, damp a cotton wool ball and dab the root to get rid of errant root lift stick outs.

 2. Finger fun

For styling use your fingers to give you the shape lifting where you need to get volume at the root, to finish off if you want a smooth finish try using a round bristle brush (as this will smooth the cuticle to make it glossy)

 3. Quick “de frizz”

Smooth frizzy hair with having a Keratin Treatment, I use it on both female and male clients on specific areas such as the hair lines including fringe and nape to hold the hair line down.

 4. Don’t get Into a Lather
