Mary J. Blige Funky, Layered Shag
Mary J. Blige's shag is a good choice for layered, medium length hair. What to do: 1. Apply a straightening cream and blow dry hair with a round brush, flipping your ends out. 2. Follow up with a flat iron to further straighten and flip. 3. Apply styling wax to your ends to keep them from falling limp and to get that piece-y texture.
Kathryn Morris Medium-Length, Blonde, Shag Hairstyle
Kathryn Morris is sporting a classic shag cut that's sophisticated, thanks to the razored ends, and easy to style. Get her look: 1. Apply styling mousse and work throughout damp hair. Part hair to the left. 2. Using a large round brush, blow dry small sections of hair. Blow dry bangs to the left, blow ends of hair up (with brush on top of the hair) and pay special attention to hair at the crown of head, where you want the most volume. At crown, pick up very small sections, and, using the round brush, pull brush through strands slowly, beginning at the root and pulling through to the ends. 3. On the top and crown of head, use large hot rollers on sections of hair, leaving them in for just 10 to 15 seconds at a time (you're trying to create body and shape, not actual curls). 4. Use hair wax to separate pieces of hair at the ends, and lightly mist hair with a light-hold hairspray to set the look.
Hilary Duff Tousled, Layered, Funky Hairstyle
Hilary Duff's shaggy layers and long bangs give her a funky rock 'n roll look that's perfect for medium length hair. What to do: 1. Start by applying a texturizing spray to towel-dried hair. 2. Next, blow dry strands using a large round brush. You want to lift hair at the roots and dry from underneath. As you dry the length, turn the brush out and away from your face to create flipped out ends. Do not -- repeat, do not -- try this flipped out look on blunt cut hair, unless you like looking like you're straight out of the 50s. 3. Switch to a vent brush to blow dry your bangs straight. 4. Once your hair is dry, rub a dab of texturizing putty between your palms, then flip your head upside down and shake your hands through your hair. Shaking the roots will give hair a sexy teased and tousled look.
