Gretchen Mol Casual Wavy Updo Hairstyle - Light Blonde (Platinum)
Gretchen Mol looks gorgeous here in a unique up-do that makes the most of her fine hair type and delicate facial features. Having a diamond face shape that is wider at the cheeks, Gretchen looks best in styles that have a grown out fringe and ones that frame the eyes. This short ‘do does just that, with the fringe worn to the cheekbones and bulked up with some backcombing and curls. Gretchen has tucked the other side behind one ear for a chic finish to this funky ‘do. Ladies with fine hair will especially enjoy this short hairstyle that adds maximum volume and body.
Having a fair, cool complexion and light green eyes, Gretchen looks best in icy white and golden shades of blonde. This platinum tone is ideal for her complexion and makes her eyes pop even more. No highlights are needed here as this ultra light blonde looks radiant on its own.

- Styling Tip: Use hot rollers applied vertically around the head to add curl and bounce to fine locks.
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 to the Left
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye 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 left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
3 . Use a Diffuser, Fingers and a Blow-dryer
Tip your head upside down 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.
4 . Blow-dry Bangs to the Left
To blow-dry your bangs you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the bangs are completely dry.
5 . Use Large Hot Rollers
A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.
6 . 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.
7 . Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back
Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller 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 down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
8 . Pin the Side Back
Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.
