How to Style Women’s Short Hair with Gel
Step 1: Start with Clean Hair
Before you begin styling your hair with gel, it’s important to make sure your hair is clean and free of any product build-up. If your hair is dirty, the product won’t be able to properly penetrate the hair shaft and your style won’t hold as well. Start by washing your hair with a gentle shampoo and conditioner, then towel dry your hair until it’s damp but not completely dry.
Step 2: Apply the Gel
Once your hair is clean and damp, it’s time to start applying the gel. Start at the back of your head and work your way up to the front. Take a small amount of gel and rub it between your hands, then apply it to your hair starting at the roots and working your way down to the ends. Make sure you’re evenly coating all of your hair with the gel.
Step 3: Style as Desired
Once you’ve applied the gel, you can start styling your hair as desired. If you’re going for a spiked look, use your fingers to tease your hair into spikes. If you want more of a slicked back look, use a comb to comb your hair back. You can also use a round brush to add volume and texture to your style.
Step 4: Allow the Gel to Set
Once you’ve styled your hair, it’s important to allow the gel to set. The longer you allow the gel to set, the stronger the hold will be. You can either let your hair air dry or use a blow dryer to speed up the process. Once the gel is dry, you’re finished and your style will hold all day.
When styling your hair with gel, it’s important to not use too much product. If you use too much, your hair will look greasy and won’t hold well. It’s better to start with a small amount and add more as needed. You should also make sure you’re using a good quality gel, as this will help give you a better hold and a smoother finish.
