Ready? Here we go!

Style 1: Laetitia Casta's Slicked Back Short Hair as Seen at New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016

You'll need:

- A high-shine strand smoother serum spray

- A fine-toothed comb

- A strong hair spray

Step One

Towel-dry your hair, leaving it slightly damp.

Step Two

Spritz the strand smoother serum generously all over your hair. Using your fingers, spread it through your hair to remove frizz, straighten your strands and make them appear super glossy.

Step Three

Comb your hair. You can choose a fully back-brushed look or create a side part and comb your short slick hair sideways.

Step Four

Spritz a few pumps of the hairspray to tame flyways and set your slicked back short hair for longer wear.

Style 2: Laetitia Casta's Short Wet-Look Hair as Seen on Vogue Hommes Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Cover

You'll need:

- An extreme style hair gel

- A tail comb (optional)

Step One

Take a small dollop of the extreme style hair gel and spread it all over your dry hair with your fingers. The gel will lend maximum hold and ultra-shine to your hair and allow you to sculpt it the way you want for long wear.

Step Two

There are several styling variations that you can try. For example,

- For a natural-looking messy wet hair look, simply comb your hair using your fingers and set it in place. You can go for a brushed-back look or a side-parted hairstyle.

- For a neat wet hair look, use the tail of your comb to create a side part and brush both the sides backwards to create a clean side swept style.

Style 3: Laetitia Casta's Asymmetrical Messy Short Hair as Seen on Harper's Bazaar Espana August 2015 Cover

You'll need:

- Hair deconstruction gum

- A wide-toothed comb

- Fine hold hairspray

Step One

Massage a small dollop of hair deconstruction gum through your dry hair, covering all the strands from root to shaft. This will prep your hair for styling, lend it great hold and also a slight shine.

Step Two

Use your wide-toothed comb to create a blurred side part and gently comb your hair sideways. You can brush your hair back or forward, depending what kind of look you're after.

Step Three

Using your fingers, scrunch your brushed hair to create a mussed-up look or style individual hair pieces to create a messy shag.

Step Four

If you're happy with the way your hair looks, set the style with a few spritz of fine hold hairspray.
