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.

Start with a smoothing cream on damp hair and blow dry straight with a flat paddle brush. 3. Then, go over with a flat iron to give your hair shine and get it really straight. Be sure to keep the iron on the move. It shouldn't stay in one area for too long or you could fry your hair.4. Spray your hairbrush with hairspray and gently brush through hair.

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.
