Description

Jessica tried this sassy style at the launch of Blockbuster Total Access and looked great! Her hair was left to sit below shoulder length and was slightly layered at the very ends to help add shape and movement. Lots of root lift was added on top as her hair was swept into a half-up, half-down style and her bangs were blow-dried to direct backwards and cover her ears for a sassy finish. This hairstyle is a great option for those with a rounder face as it will help to create a more oval look.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

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.

2. Part the Middle

Placeholder articles

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.

3. Use a Large Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

4. Scrunch Hair Dry with a Diffuser and Fingers

Placeholder articles

Lift your hair up with your fingers and move the diffuser up to the ends, motioning the diffuser to the scalp in circular movements. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off. Leaving a little bit of moisture will allow the hair to dry naturally.

5. Blow-dry the Top Under to the Right

Placeholder articles

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.

6. Blow-dry the Top Under to the Left

Placeholder articles

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 left. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.

7. Pin the Hair Half Up and Half Down

Placeholder articles

Take one section of hair from one side and secure it at the back of your head with a pin. Repeat on the other side to form this style.

8. Scrunch Hair Using Moulding Cream and Fingers

Placeholder articles

Apply your moulding cream to the ends of your hair and then lightly pinch and scrunch the hair before allowing your moulding cream to set.
