Kristen Wiig Short Straight Casual Hairstyle





Added: 4th September 2017
The back and sides of this hairstyle is tapered into the head with jagged cut layers through the top styled over to the side for a fun and fresh feel. The bangs are swept to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all 'do brilliantly. Product is needed to keep this hairstyle is in place.

Kristen Wiig looks chic and stylish here in a layered short hairstyle. Kristen suits short hair well, due to her oblong face shape and high cheekbones. She also looks best in styles with side swept bangs thanks to her high forehead. The tapered sides and back in this cut show off her face nicely, while the longer layers at the front give her some forehead coverage and bring the focus up to her eyes. This ‘do works well with her hair type, which is fine with some wave to it, and looks best in cuts that are layered with precision.

As for her color, Kristen has a fair, warm complexion, blue eyes and naturally dark blonde hair. She sticks close to her natural color at the roots here and lightens up the rest to a light wheat blonde tone. This look gives Kristen's 'do a trendy edge while flattering her complexion and making her eye color even more prominent.

Kristen Wiig is an American actress, comedian, writer, and producer. She is known for her work on the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, and such films as Bridesmaids, The Martian, and Ghostbusters.

Styling




Mousse
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.

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.

Brushsmall
3 . Use a Small Radial Brush

A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.

Sidesflicks
5 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is 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.

7 . Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the right. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.
