Lure them in with a thick, luscious pixie in a bright blonde hue. Apply mousse to wet hair and blow-dry locks with a round brush to create volume in all the right places. Top the look off by applying a small dose of styling cream to help tame flyaways and create a sleek, attention-grabbing look.

A sleek, short snip coupled with a gorgeous chestnut hue creates a stunning and stylish silhouette. Layers are cut higher in the back and subtly go longer toward the chin. Use a round brush while blow-drying strands to accentuate layers, and run a shine serum through tresses with your fingers.

A fierce attitude and confidence are key to rocking this tousled, short snip. Ruby-red tresses are razor-cut into piecey layers and paired with a straight fringe to create the perfect face-framing silhouette. Once strands are blow-dried, use a flat iron to get pin-straight ends, and run styling gel through mane with your fingers while tousling.

This short snip is gorgeous from all angles! Layers are cut short in the back and longer in the front. To get ultimate volume, tease hair at the back and sides of the crown and blow-dry using a large round brush. A bit of holding spray and a misting of shine serum give this look long-lasting hold and sheen.
