When it comes to styling short hair, we often get pigeonholed into a limited number of styles. Less hair, less to work with, right? Think again. Edgier than a simple ponytail and chicer than a punked-out mohawk, Sebastian Professional hairstylist Diva Poulos created this style we’re dubbing the shape-shifter.
To get the look, start by working a hair oil, like the Sebastian Professional Dark Oil, into damp hair for shine and smoothness. Next, blowdry your hair. If your hair is curly, use a flat iron to straighten your strands. (Don’t worry about it looking perfect.) Next, part your hair down the middle. Starting at your hairline, take a 1-inch piece from each side of the part and tie them together into a crisscrossed knot (just like the first step in tying shoelaces). Secure the knot with bobby pins, then continue knotting down the center of the head until you’ve reached the back. To finish the look, use a 1-inch curling wand to curl the remaining length of hair.
