Is there any greater (beauty-related) joy in life than finding a hairstyle that looks like it took forever to create, but in reality, was executed in less than five minutes? We didn't think so. That being said, short haired ladies, you've really hit the jackpot with this one: It's a perfectly polished pompadour (sorry, we couldn't resist a little alliteration) that'll leave you looking less 1950s greaser and more 2013 girl-of-the-moment.
Watch as pro Michael Dueñas takes a page out of his own beauty playbook (check out the modified pomp he's working!) and talks our project manager Jem through a sleek, modern take on this under-appreciated style. Short haired or not, you gotta see the blowdryer magic going on here — it's your ticket to serious volume.
