Hi, everyone. I'm hairstylist, Amanda Shackleton, and today I'm here to show you how to fake longer hair into looking like it's short without using your scissors. So what I like to do, sometimes I'm doing this when I'm doing vintage inspired looks for people. A lot of the times I do things like this for costume parties or Halloween parties or if people just want to do something different with their hair, it's really not that difficult. You take some hairspray and spray it into the ends of the hair and then just tease up the ends just like this all the way around and then when you're done with that, I like to take the hair and kind of sweep it to the side a little bit, secure it with just a small pin and once you've done that it's really very easy, you just take the ends of the hair and kind of just twirl it underneath just like that and grab some bobby pins and just start pinning it in to the hair. You want to put enough bobby pins in to make sure that the ends of the hair don't fall down, we don't want to see the ends coming down but it's a really really nice way to fake your hair if you don't want to cut it. So there you go, I've done one side and I'm going to leave the other side out so you can see the difference and if I turn my model like this and you look at her from the side, it really does look like she's got a lot shorter hair. So I'm Amanda Shackleton from and I've just shown you how to wear your hair short without cutting it.
