Sophia Bush Medium Wavy Formal Wedding Hairstyle

Added: 19th August 2015
Big beautiful waves are added to the mid-lengths to ends of this 'do with one side pinned behind the ear to create this stunning style best suited to complement a long face. This look is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs product to tame fly-away hair.

Sophia Bush looks oh-so-glamorous here in a side-swept curly ‘do that is perfect for an evening out. Sophia has pumped up the volume of her locks by first adding kinky waves throughout her hair and then pinning one side back at the nape of the neck. The waves are excellent for softening up her square face shape, as is the asymmetrical look. Square faces also benefit from a deep side part as well as extra volume at the crown area, both of which Sophia has here. This hairstyle is an excellent way to jazz up a simple bob for a night out.

Sophia is a natural brunette, which suits her olive complexion and green eyes nicely. Here she has lightened up the ends into a golden blonde, which also works well for her, thanks to her warm complexion and eye color. This two tone hue gives Sophia the best of both worlds when it comes to color, not to mention a trendy overall finish.

Sophia Bush is an American actress, director, spokesperson, and activist.




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.

2 . Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

3 . Use a Large Curling Iron

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

4 . Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

5 . Pin the Side Back

Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.

6 . Piece the Ends Using Wax

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

7 . 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.

8 . 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.
