2 Products That Will Change How You Style Short Hair

Rachel styled her hair with Molding Clay and just the heat of her hands.

If you’re rocking a super-short style, chances are you’re sick of people saying how easy it must be to have cropped haircut. Unless you’re blessed with perfect hair, you have to do something to make it look that good—short or not. And a lot of the styling products out there just aren’t much help—they either shellac your style in place, or they require you to style with heat or on dry hair. And isn’t the point of a short style often just that—to be less of a slave to your blowdryer?

Our scientists are reinventing how you create (and change up) shape on short hair, so you can style easier, better, and all-around smarter.

For airy volume and texture: choose Amp Texture Volumizer. Forget the hot rollers or curling iron and get something with instant gratification. Amp major volume, touchable texture, and flexible hold on shorter haircuts. To activate, just rub a small dab evenly between your palms until the product is transparent, then work it into dry hair (avoiding direct application to your scalp).

For sculpted styles: go with Molding Clay. It’s formulated with a temperature-sensitive polymer blend to help you shape your style on both damp and dry hair. It stays malleable and revivable (so you can change up your look after work without any heat tools), too. And it holds up on even the hottest of days—whatever look you create isn’t going to quit on you.

Here’s Molding Clay in action, and Rachel changed up her look using just the heat of her hands (no tools required).

    Please post something for layered medium length hair. Not much here. It’s either short or long.

    I have fine layered shoulder length color treated hair. My hair has a lot of natural curl. It is also oily at the roots and dry on the ends. I have noticed lately that I am losing hair after shampoo and conditioning. I am looking for a shampoo and conditioner that adds volume but won’t damage my hair.

    I have baby fine, long bob length colour treated hair and bought Living Proof; full thickening cream and Instant Texture Volumizer as I read the various reviews that these products (when applied to mid-length to ends) were NOT tacky but added volume to fine hair. However, after applying each of these products to clean damp hair (ie on 2 separate occasions) ) I found it impossible to style my hair with a brush as my hair was so tacky on both occasions. I’ve looked over your styling videos etc and can’t find any styling techniques that use these products to blow-dry hair using either of these 2 products. Can you please tell me what products would be best to 1/ add volume to my hair, AND 2/ be easy to style with (ie not tacky that it pulls on my fine hair). Thank you 😉

      Hi Sue- It sounds like Amp (I believe this is the the Instant Texture Volumizer you’re referring to) might not be right for you. You might want to try blow drying with the Full Cream and then finishing with Full Dry Volume Blast on dry hair. Hope this helps!
