The beautiful redhead, depending on the angle, appears to have an oval shaped face. Historically she keeps her tresses shorter in length. At times she will actually let her hair touch the tops of her shoulders, but generally her hair is to her chin. Although she sometimes wears her hair pulled off her face into a short twisted style, she more often is photographed with a side swept fringe.

Cynthia's various short hairstyles can best be described as short shags with graduated layers from the back of her crown down towards the nape of her neck. Her sides also have the sassy tousled look that she can achieve from finger arranging.

It appears that her short shaggy hairstyle has been created with a scissors and/or a cutting shears but it does not appear to have the wispiness you would expect with a razor cut.

Use a long finger diffuser to create soft natural curls. Or if hair has natural wave, scrunch to create the tousled curl look. When hair is 100% dry, use a curling iron or hot rollers to touch up the curls. Finish with a spritz of shine spray or use a few drops of shine pomade or product to add shimmer. Add a light blast of hairspray and you are ready to play.
