Pia Toscano Long Straight Hairstyle - Light Blonde
Pia Toscano looks lovely here in a long sleek hairstyle. Having a square face shape and high hairline, her face looks best in ‘dos with a grown out fringe and longer layers near the ends of the hair. This simple straight 'do creates a nice frame for her face and shows off her ultra long tresses that have a glossy, shiny finish to them. This cut also highlights her strong cheekbones thanks to the center part that allows the hair to drape nicely and fall past her shoulders. For a high, rounded hairline, a side part can also give good results.
Pia Toscano has a warm complexion with golden undertones and dark eyes. This makes her suited to hair colors that have a warm base to them, like the golden blonde shade seen here. This tone is ideal for brightening up her complexion and it brings out her eye color. The bleached out ends give her 'do a beachy finish and adds some extra style to her 'do.
Pia Toscano is an American singer from Howard Beach, New York. Toscano placed ninth on the tenth season of American Idol.

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 . Use a Large Radial Brush
A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
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 a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

7 . 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.
8 . 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.
