Razor cuts have been popular for their blunt, geometric styles. These haircuts are best for women with fine to medium hair with a slight wave. Anyone with curly hair should not consider this look as curly hair will just look unhealthy and get frizzy.

Styling after a shower is easy as you just have to scrunch in some styling crème and let hair air-dry.
Fun, flirty hair is not just achieved from your haircut. It also takes the right color and upkeep. To brighten dull skin, go for warmer tones and add depth to thinning air with highlights and lowlights. Just a few strategically colored strands will change your entire appearance. Play with different colors to figure out the best look for you. Blow-drying hair or any exposing it to heat from the sun or straighteners will dry it out and cause split ends which lead to a frizzy, lackluster appearance. Go a step further than just shampoo and conditioner. Opt for richer hair conditioning masks once a week for softer, glossier tresses.
