HT: Create Chic, Short Hair. Tips From Kevin Murphy

HOW TO CREATE A CHIC, SHORT STYLE: TIPS FROM HAIR GURU KEVIN MURPHY

The short cut is back and it’s time to take the plunge. The 2014 do’ is edgy, feminine and playful and has taken over Hollywood, with the likes of Karlie Kloss, Beyonce, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Coco Roch opting for a dramatic new look. We’ve even seen Supermodel Gisele Bündchen rock a faux buzz cut for the latest Balenciaga campaign, if that’s not statement enough – shorter hair is in!
International hair guru Kevin Murphy says in order for the look to be modern, this cut-of-the-moment should sit just above the shoulders, be chunky and full of volume.

“The more structured clothing that is in fashion today suits a short cut better than long hair.  Emphasis is now on the waist and the shoulders and with this comes high necklines. These pieces look better when the hair is away from the neck.”

Please see below for some tips from Kevin Murphy:

· The look should be loose, casual and understated. Heavy overgrown fringes with blunt textured edges will make it a bit soft and rock’n’roll but also low key

· Keeping the layers really long is best as this gives the hair a ‘lived in’ look

· Scared of getting the chop? For women afraid to make the dramatic move to cut off their hair, then try the faux bob

· Faking a bob is super easy, just style a low pony tail and tuck the tail up and under before securing with a pin. Pull some hair out around your face as this will give the appearance of short hair
Murphy also says that using the right products is vital to ensure this style looks great. The best styling products are lotions and creams that allow the hair to be moisturised but still absorb and remove the frizz, while enhancing the curl.

To maintain the look, Kevin Murphy recommends the following products:
