Description

This eye-catching style is pulled back and pinned in place to create a sassy up-do that will turn heads at any occasion. This hairstyle is ideal for an oval face shape and is easy to re-create at home. It needs some hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Dencia goes for a cool up-do here pinning her locks up at the crown and leaving out her longer layers and her arched fringe in the front. Dencia usually wears her hair down so this 'do provides her with a great option for a different look. Here she frames her eyes by wearing a long arched fringe with longer layers around her face that highlights her cheekbones and sculpts her jawline. The long length of the fringe gives her forehead some coverage while creating a sexy peek-a-boo effect, while the rest of her hair is pinned back softly at the crown, leaving lots of volume around her face.

Dencia has dark eyes and a medium-light skin tone which makes her suited to brunette and black colors of hair the best. Here, she goes for a bleached blonde and baby pink combo that works with her complexion and showcases her striking eyes. The roots are a rose pink while the lengths and ends are colored a buttery blonde for a fun contrast.

Dencia describes herself as "A simple Girl with a Dream: Singer, DJ, philanthropist, designer,Mogul."

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. Finger Dry the Back with Blow-dryer

Placeholder articles

Use your blow-dryer and your fingers to dry the back of your hair by moving your hair around to allow the heat to pass through it.

3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

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.

4. Blow-dry Bangs Forward

Placeholder articles

When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.

5. Blow-dry Left Side Forward

Placeholder articles

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.

6. Blow-dry Right Side Forward

Placeholder articles

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.

7. Use Large Hot Rollers

Placeholder articles

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

8. Tease Hair

Placeholder articles

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

9. Pin Hair

Placeholder articles

Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.

10. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

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.
