For: Hair That ODed on Product If you were a little overzealous with your hair products, try a braided headband bun. It'll help disguise oily roots, and dirty hair holds a braid better anyway. Mist a bit of dry shampoo for extra good-hair-day insurance.
Create a pompadour by teasing a section of hair from temple to temple, and then pushing it against where you normally part your hair to increase lift. Creating a pompadour on short hair can be tough, but by twisting the hair you've gathered and pushing it against your part, it will make building this style that much easier. Secure with two bobby pins in an "X" formation and go.
