Description

The ends of this black mane are layered to give this hairstyle a textured look and feel. The body and volume throughout the lengths and ends makes this softening hairstyle great for those wanting a 'do to compliment a square or round face. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks is needed to prevent split ends.

Draya Michele looks glam and sexy here in wavy layered locks that fall just past her shoulders. This hairstyle looks great with her oblong face shape as it camouflages her wide angles and highlights her strong cheekbones. Draya's ‘do also makes the most of her coarse hair type and pumps up the volume, thanks to her hair's natural wavy texture and blunt-cut ends. The length is also working well for her here as oblong-shaped faces look great with longer , voluminous cuts that add width around the face.

Draya has a warm complexion and dark eyes. She is suited to wearing hair colors that have a dark brown or black base to them due to her dark features and medium skin tone. Here, she goes for a glossy jet black shade that looks great with her skin tone and eye color.

Draya Michele is an American television personality. She was one of the main cast members in the VH1 reality series Basketball Wives LA since its premiere in 2010.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Gel Spray to Roots

Placeholder articles

Hold the gel spray no closer than 3 inches from your hair and then evenly mist the gel spray into the roots to create a stronger hold style. Gel spray will hold well and will not look wet or weigh the hair down. Using your gel spray in this fashion will create added hold and a longer lasting style.

2. Part to the Left

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye 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 left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Flip Head and Use a Diffuser and Fingers

Placeholder articles

Tip your head upside down 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.

4. Scrunch Hair Dry with a Diffuser and Fingers

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. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

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.
