Medium Straight Alternative Hairstyle





Added: 16th December 2010
The layers and length of this dazzling 'do are razor cut to allow the wispy ends to flick out softly showing off texture and shape which will be perfect to compliment a long face. The bangs are also jagged cut to frame the top of the face for a magnificent finish to a divine 'do.

Styling




Sculpturelotion
1 . Apply Sculpture Lotion

Apply sculpture lotion to the palm of the hand and then place it evenly throughout the hair. Sculpture lotion can be used as an alternative to mousse for messy hair, as a styling aid when blow-drying for volume, and for a stronger hold.

Dryoff
2 . Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

Backdown
3 . Style Hair Down at the Back Using Moulding Cream

Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then pull it through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a textured look.

Sidesout
4 . Style Sides Out Using Moulding Cream

To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. The more moulding cream and the more pinching that you apply, the more textured and pasty the result.

Bangsforward
5 . Style Bangs Forward Using Moulding Cream

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

Toppinching
6 . Use Moulding Cream for Texture

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. Pinch the clumps in different directions for a messier look.

Sidesflickssoft
7 . Softly Flick Sides Using Moulding Cream

Apply a small amount of moulding cream 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. Remember not to apply too much moulding cream as it will make your hair sticky.

Hairsprayfinishing
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.
