Use clippers to taper one side and the back of the head, shaping the opposite side with scissors. After washing and conditioning, wrap hair with a wrapping lotion (try Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion) and then let your hair air dry.

Even a short cut can be multidirectional. Start with layers that frame your face and use a dollop of Aveda Control Paste to create wispy strands.

A long highlighted bang gives great sass to any look. Spray pieces with Ojon Revitalizing Mist, a great leave-in conditioner that you can use alone or before heat styling.

To create this ultracool elevation, pick the hair out on one side more than the other. Use a combination of Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural Intensive Oil Sheen Spray and its Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer for hydration and shine.

Cut back on heat time with a styling paste like Sebastian Collection Molding Mud. Use a little on the ends, in place of the flat iron, to shape your crop.

Keep it short and sweet with a pixie cut. Bangs are razored into shape, leaving a little fullness at the top. A ceramic flat iron assures sleekness, and a touch of texturizing wax or paste will secure the piecey wisps along the crown.

Try hair accessories to change the shape and style. A few bobby pins can help you create a soft Mohawk, and cute hair clips or combs will dress it up.

The Midas Touch
Go for the gold with warm blond highlights that aren’t too brassy. This short bob works beautifully with Mizani Beyond-Conditioning Creme Permanent Haircolor in Lightest Warm Gold Blonde.
