Rita Wilson Long Wavy Hairstyle - Dark Blonde
Rita Wilson looks lovely here with a softly waved shoulder length hairstyle. Working with her natural hair texture, this 'do has been styled with loose flowing curls that add body and shine. This is ideal for her face shape, which is an oval shape, as it benefits from the added softness around the face and chin area in particular. Rita has a short forehead with a straight hairline which is ideal for wearing a side part and grown out fringe, although the center part works well for her too, as seen here.
Rita has a warm complexion with golden undertones and blue eyes. This makes her well suited to beige and golden hair tones the best. Here, she goes for a honey blonde base color with sun-kissed highlights throughout. This color works well for her and warms up her skin tone, plus it makes her blue eye color even more noticeable. This is a great choice for Rita's coloring as it gives her a fun, youthful vibe.
Rita Wilson is an American actress, singer, and producer. She appeared in films Sleepless in Seattle, Now and Then, Jingle All the Way, The Story of Us and Runaway Bride.

1 . Apply Mousse
Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
2 . 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.
4 . Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
5 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
6 . Use Large Hot Rollers
A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.
7 . Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side
Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
8 . Apply Hot Rollers Vertically in the Back
Take a section of hair from the nape no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically down the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
9 . Scrunch Hair Using Moulding Cream and Fingers
Apply your moulding cream to the ends of your hair and then lightly pinch and scrunch the hair before allowing your moulding cream to set.
10 . 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.
