Hi, my name is Lauren, and I'm going to discuss how to style short, layered hair. When your hair is very layered, sometimes, especially when it is shorter, you're going to need different diameter brushes. The different diameter brush would actually go for different lengths. The shorter your hair is the smaller diameter brush you actually want to use, so that way you can actually wrap the brush around the diameter, the hair around the diameter of the brush in order for it to give a bit of a bend at the bottom and you to get optimum results when for volume. You're going to take your blow dryer, and you're going to start with blowing everything pretty much up in order to increase the volume. You really want to start drying at your roots the first place. Your hair will ultimately fall throughout the day, so it always is best to give a little more volume, cause' usually as soon as you walk outside your hair kind of falls. Until your hair's about eighty percent dry I wouldn't even pick up a brush. Your hair doesn't start into a set until it's about eighty percent dry. Concentrate on blowing the root area in the direction that you want it to go. If you do not want a lot of volume then you are going to go more downward motion with your blow dryer and blow it down. Once your hair is eighty percent dry you are going to take whichever diameter brush you are going to need because of the length of your hair, and you are going to roll it and dry it. I like the ionic and the ceramic. It does help with actually get creating that bend, plus if you warm it up with using the hot on your dryer you can use the cold button in order to set the style, and in order to set that bit of that cold in in that curl. After you're done going through with blow-drying everything you would then take a finishing product. If you want to add a little shine you could do more of a oily based or silicone based product, or you can use a bit of a cream depending on the look you're going for, and you want to just kind of go through mostly on your ends and just give it some separation, and just kind of finish that style. And that is how you style short, layered hair
