Oddly enough, we shampoo our do’s and then dirty them again, technically, with product. It’s all in the process of taking our freshly washed waves and directing said products where we need it to replace hair too silky to style otherwise. Taking small sections at a time, this short hair cut appears to have had these sections managed with hair wax. Notice the strand definition along the bangs’ area.
Hair probably was directed in its current "bend" according to the care given during blow drying. Scrunching a bit with hair wax here will also aid in the controlled, messy effect.
