Ivy Levan Medium Straight Hairstyle - Medium Brunette (Chestnut)
Ivy Levan goes for a voluminous ‘do here that gives her a sophisticated and sexy look. This hairstyle is ideal for showing off her heart face shape and expressive facial features. The volume at the roots gives the rest of her ‘do body where it is needed most and prevents it from falling flat, which can be a common problem for her fine hair type. The soft curls at the ends frame her face nicely and add a soft finish to this ‘do, with a hint of a Sixties vibe.
Ivy has blue eyes and a cool skin tone making her suitable to beige tones of blonde and brunette the best. Here she has chosen a subtle ash brunette base that has cool tones at the roots and highlights that add a hint of warmth at the ends. Overall this is a natural looking shade for Ivy that is ideal for her skin tone and eye color.

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.
3 . 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.
5 . 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.
6 . Tease Hair
Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.
7 . 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.
