Medium Wavy Casual Hairstyle





Added: 12th November 2017
These chestnut locks are left long flowing past the shoulders, showing off the soft vintage curls throughout. This hairstyle is easy to maintain with regular trims every 4-6 weeks and needs a small amount of product to tame fly-away hair.

Our model goes for a polished look here with a medium wavy hairstyle full of smoothness and shine. This hairstyle gives her a vintage look that has a ultra styled feel to it, making it a good choice for a formal event or otherwise classy casual look. Our model's hairstyle has a simple off-center part and grown out fringe which creates a lovely frame for her triangle face shape. She lets her stylish curls do its thing here which shows off her thick, healthy tresses nicely. To give her hairstyle an extra dose of style, she has used large hot rollers to create giant voluminous curls which she keeps in tact but brushes through them for a soft finish.

As for her color, our model looks lovely in chestnut brown locks that match her green eyes and olive skin tone nicely. Having this skin tone, she looks best in caramel and brown shades. Here, she goes for a mixture of both with darker roots and lengths and highlighted ends for a subtle sun-kissed finish. The highlights are quite thin, which creates an overall natural tone for her rather than a bold fashion statement.

Styling




Moisturizer
1 . Apply Moisturizer

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

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.

Crown
6 . 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.

Largehotroller
7 . Use Large Hot Rollers

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

8 . 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.

Horizontalbackroller
9 . Apply Hot Rollers Vertically in the Back

Take a section of hair from the nape 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 down the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

11 . 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.
