Medium Straight Formal Hairstyle


 Hairstyle

Description

Bewitching and brilliant layers were the main focus of this hairstyle. The back layers are razor cut to achieve a wispy and weightless look and feel. The same layers were continued through the front which allowed the ends to be flicked out. The wispy bangs complimented this look perfectly.

Styling Steps

Straighteningbalm
1 . Apply Straightening Balm

Squeeze a small amount of straightening balm into your palms and then rub your hands together before smoothing the product evenly through damp hair.

Partleft
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.

Brushmedium
3 . Use a Medium Radial Brush

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

Backunder
4 . Blow-dry the Back Under

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

Sidesunder
5 . Blow-dry the Sides Under

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

6 . Style to the Right Using a Blow-dryer

Working in sections, place your brush at the roots of your hair and then using a blow-dryer on low heat, drag your brush through to the ends styling towards the right.

7 . Style to the Left Using a Blow-dryer

Working in sections, place your brush at the roots of your hair and then using a blow-dryer on low heat, drag your brush through to the ends styling towards the left.

Bangsforwardbdry
8 . Blow-dry Bangs Forward

When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.

Backdown
9 . Style Hair Down at the Back Using Gel

Apply some some gel to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look.

11 . Style the Right Side Forward and Wispy Using Gel

12 . Softly Flick Sides Using Gel

Apply a small amount of gel to your fingertips, and then starting about halfway down the hair shaft, pinch and drag the hair in a downward motion before flicking the ends out.

Bangsforward
13 . Style Bangs Forward Using Gel

Apply a small amount of gel to your fingertips and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs to the ends for hold and texture.

Smoothingshinefinishing
14 . 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.

Lacquerfinishing
15 . Apply Lacquer

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
