Cardi B Medium Straight Formal Bob Hairstyle





Added: 4th September 2017
This bob is blow-dried stick straight to smooth down the top and lengths for a fabulous finish. The grown out bangs are worn down to frame the sides of the face and complete the overall look brilliantly. Regular trims are needed to maintain this hairstyle.

Cardi B looks flawless here in a chic and timeless blunt-cut bob. This cut is ideal for showing off her strong facial features, especially her eyes and mouth, and flatters her oval face shape. The grown out bangs provide her face with a nice frame while the rest of her hair maintains a smooth, sculpted shape that falls just above her shoulders. The blunt ends give her locks a healthy appearance and keeps her hair looking thick. This ‘do has lots of movement to it and works with both casual and formal attire. The geometric cut gives her look an edgy and fashion-forward finish.

Cardi looks fabulous here in on-trend white-blonde locks that flatter her skin tone and eye color nicely. Having dark eyes and a warm skin tone, she looks best in dark brown or black hair but can also pull off beige and platinum blonde shades too. This particular color has a hint of creamy white to it that highlights her complexion and makes her eyes pop. Ladies with dark eyes like hers will find that cool platinum blonde tones will make them pop even more. This color needs regular toning treatments to keep brassy tones at bay.

Belcalis Almanzar, professionally known as Cardi B, is an American hip hop recording artist, as well as a television and social media personality.

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.

Partmiddle
2 . Part the Middle

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

Paddlebrush
3 . 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.

Backstraight
4 . Blow-dry Straight Back

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.

Sidesstraight
5 . Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.

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 Left Side Forward

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a forward and downward direction with your blow-dryer above. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly above.

8 . Blow-dry Right Side Forward

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

Iron
9 . 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.

Smoothingshinefinishing
10 . Apply Smoothing Shine

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

Hairsprayfinishing
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.
