To achieve this look, spray TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray onto your hair, then use your hair straightener to style it straight.

Charming, elegant and très chic, a French girl pixie is an awesome way to accentuate high cheekbones while creating the illusion of a smaller forehead in those with heart-shaped faces. To style a pixie, you can opt for a fluffy texture, or go for the slicked-back look to really define and accentuate your face.
7. Grown-Out Shag
Last year may have been all about the rock ‘n’ roll-inspired shag cut that’s a little more relaxed with fewer layers. Not only is the grown-out shag one of our personal favorites when it comes to this year’s top short haircuts, it retains just the right amount of grunge to boast that effortless, cool LA-girl spirit. A trendy and low-maintenance short hairstyle! Sign us up!
8. Blunt Cut
Blunt cut styles are one of our current favorite short hair looks of the season, especially since there are so many ways you can sport this style. Elevate your look by getting a short crop with clean, sharp lines like this super short bob haircut above. Just be sure to get regular trims with this look to maintain its signature sharpness.
9. Curly Crop
Wash and wear short styles are perfect for the girl who wants a short style that requires minimal effort. With this curly crop short hairstyle, all you need is a styling gel or cream that will give your curls definition, like The Good Stuff Curl Hydration Butter. To style, use a quarter-sized amount of the product that you work through your damp hair. Air-dry and go for a frizz-free finish.
10. Crop with Bold Dye
Giving your crop a bold makeover with a cool hair color isn’t a bad idea. This season the peach hair trend is the color everyone is after, but that doesn’t mean other hair colors are not just as great, like this hot pink hue, that we are sure we are going to see crop up during the summer.
11. Straight Edges
Wear your bleach blonde hair with blunt and choppy edges. Pair a full set of bangs with a straight-edged bob for a clean-cut look that’s perfect for short hair.
12. Overgrown Bangs
On the other end of the bangs style spectrum, you can wear your fringe in a wispy overgrown way. Have your stylist cut your bangs so they hit just below your eyebrows and be sure to keep them thin to maintain this wispy style.
13. Layered Pixie
Brush your layered pixie up and away from your face for a voluminous and edgy look.
14. The Easiest Waves
Air dry your waves to create this easy and laid-back style that’s perhaps the most effortless look you’ll ever wear.
15. Closely Cropped Curls
Wear your curls in an almost cleanly shaven style closely cropped against your head. We love how unexpectedly sexy and feminine a cropped look like this feels.
