Full Answer

  1. Layer the top of your hair

    Osbourne's haircut is tapered at the bottom and sides. The top of the hair is jagged cut and sliced to create a textured look with which you can play around to create the best look for you. Ask your hairstylist to use a razor after your haircut to add to the choppy look.

  2. Style your hair

    Tease or back-comb the top part of your hair to create more volume. Then using hair wax, a styling product that works to smooth and twist short hair, pull a small section of hair upward. This creates the spiky look, replicating Sharon's jagged hairstyle. Repeat with a new section of hair. To get more texture, apply more wax to the ends of your hair.

  3. Finish with hair spray

    Invest in a good quality hair spray that leaves minimal residue. Hold the spray a few inches away from you and apply a small amount to hold the hairstyle in place.
