short straight hairstyle with a flip in the back

This is my go-to short hairstyle. It's so easy, and literally takes less than 5-minutes.
  1. Blow dry your hair, curling the front under with a round brush, but leave it slightly damp (if only just in the back).
  2. Add a bit of Pure Abundance Hair Potion to volumize your crown.
  3. Tease your crown (I use a steel pin brush).
  4. Smooth a penny-sized amount of wax through your fingers and flip/spike the back of your hair. Mine does it naturally, you may have to flip yours out with a round brush. 
  5. Finish with a quick shot of hairspray (I love Mitch Stone's Session Spray—it doesn't make my hair stiff but gives a great hold).

Products & tools used for this hairstyle:

Disclosure: the Aveda Products & Mitch Stone Session Spray are c/o products, though I use them daily and love them regardless of the fact that they are c/o.
