Laverne Cox Long Wavy Hairstyle - Dark Blonde
Laverne Cox looks lovely here in long wavy locks that show off her best assets. This ‘do frames her oblong face shape nicely and makes the most of her naturally thick hair texture. Laverne has a high, rounded hairline which makes her best suited to a grown-out fringe, as seen here. The center part and voluminous waves help to frame her face and soften up her jaw line. Layers throughout give this hairstyle movement, and also helps to reduce any heavy or bulky weight in the hair.
Laverne has a warm, medium-dark complexion with gold undertones and dark brown eyes. This makes her best suited to hair colors on the warm spectrum like golden blonde and brown tones seen here. To warm up her complexion and give her tresses a sun-kissed look, she has added light blonde highlights throughout the ends. This gives her hair some extra pizzazz and a beachy finish.

1 . Part the Middle
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.
2 . Scrunch Hair Dry with a Diffuser and Fingers
Lift your hair up with your fingers and move the diffuser up to the ends, motioning the diffuser to the scalp in circular movements. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off. Leaving a little bit of moisture will allow the hair to dry naturally.
3 . Apply Smoothing Shine
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
4 . Apply Hairspray
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
