If you’re already rocking a shorter hairstyle or need some extra inspiration to chop those long locks, then you’re definitely in the right place. Actress Scarlett Johansson has been sporting a shorter, edgier look over the last few months which is perfect since we’re heading into warmer weather.
This easy look can easily be recreated at home with just a few key techniques and holy-grail products.
1. Start by using a thickening shampoo which will give your hair some extra lift and texture at the roots. Massage carefully then rinse with cold water to awaken the hair follicle.

2. Wait for your hair to air-dry, then apply a lightweight mousse into the longer layers. This is perfect since it won’t leave your hair feeling too oily or crispy, and will give it some extra hold.

3. Use a round brush and wrap your hair around the bristles. Blow-dry on a cool setting, making sure to alternate layers of your hair. It will create the illusion of extra body at the crown.

4. To set this all in place, use a hairspray and mist finely over the top of your hair. It will keep everything looking perfect without leaving the hair feeling too dry.
