Carey Mulligan

Carey Mulligan’s hairstyle is an adorable way to style short hair for prom. Here’s how to get the look:

1. Right when you get out of the shower, towel dry your hair off.

2. Apply smoothing cream to the front of your hair, including your bangs, and blow dry straight using a round brush. You want to get the hair nice and smooth in this area.

3. You can blow dry the rest of your hair using just your hands to get more of a textured look. Mist the back of your hair with some texturizing spray, and roughly blow dry until it is completely dry.

4. Put some styling wax on your finger tips and piece out your ends. Pull the bottom half of your hair outward to add more volume.
