Long Straight Formal Hairstyle





Added: 19th November 2017
The ends of this style are blunt cut and blow-waved perfectly to smooth down the top for a sexy look and feel. The long layers cut around the collarbone softens the hairstyle and completes the over-all hairstyle brilliantly. Product is needed to tame fly-away hair.

Our model goes for a gorgeous look here with a side-parted blunt cut that falls just past her shoulders. This hairstyle might be simple but it is anything but boring. With a long layers that end at her collarbone, this ‘do is the perfect way to compliment an oval or oblong face shape. The sharp side part flatters her high, rounded hairline and camouflage her angles around the jawline. This ‘do can also be pulled back for extra versatility with the longer front layers left out to frame the face. This haircut is ideal for ladies with thick, straight hair that prefer minimally styled looks.

Our model is rocking a gorgeous medium copper red base color and lighter copper highlights throughout that look fantastic with her warm complexion and brown eyes. The lighter tips show off her haircut and gives her complexion a sun-kissed glow. This is a natural ginger color combo that works well for her coloring and thick, straight hair type. Extra care must be taken to keep the ends looking healthy- regular trims will help, as will applying a smoothing shine or moulding cream through the ends to finish. Regular color touch ups are also needed, as red tends to fade fast, especially when exposed to sun.

Styling




Partright
1 . Part to the Right

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

Paddlebrush
2 . Use a Paddle Brush

A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.

3 . Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush

Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.

Iron
4 . Use a Straightening Iron

When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

5 . 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.
