Jennifer Widerstrom Long Wavy Formal Hairstyle





Added: 3rd June 2015
Layers are cut around the sides and front of these highlighted tresses then blow-waved beautifully to add body and volume making this a fantastic hairstyle to frame a long face. This look is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs product to tame fly-away hair.

Jennifer Widerstrom is sporting an elegant ‘do here that is perfect for a formal night out. This side-parted hairstyle is easy to create but the finished look is polished and sophisticated. Jennifer has an oval shaped face which means that she can pull of pretty much any style with ease, but this soft wavy ‘do is particularly nice on her, and is a great way to show off her gorgeous highlights.

Jennifer’s chestnut brown base has been highlighted throughout with caramel brown and blonde tones, while her roots remain dark. This technique creates a natural-looking ombre effect that gives her a sun-kissed look and brings out her natural glow. This hair color is an ideal shade for brunettes with fair to medium-dark warm complexions. Dark blondes can also pull this shade off if they want to darken up their locks and add some warmth.

Jennifer Widerstrom is a personal trainer who has appeared on the television series The Biggest Loser and The American Gladiators.

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.

Brushmedium
2 . 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
3 . 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.

4 . Blow-dry Left Side Back

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.
