These brunette tresses are blow-waved perfectly showing off the layers cut around the front and sides for shape and movement. This casual style is easy style at home with the right tools and perfect to frame a long face. Product is needed to tame fly-away hair.

Anna Kendrick is known for flaunting ultra-polished voluminous hairstyles, like the ‘do seen here. She has naturally thick, wavy hair that can be difficult to style in shorter cuts, but long and curly ‘dos flatter her face shape and hair type nicely. Anna has an oval face shape with a square jaw area which is softened up by the large curls throughout the mid-lengths and ends of her hair. This gives her fullness around her jaw and neck where she needs it most. She also has a low forehead and rounded hairline, so a long, grown out fringe is ideal for her. Here, large curls have been added to her bangs, which sit off the face and cascade into the rest of the hair.

Anna is a brunette and looks best in shades of chocolate brown, chestnut and auburn hair. Here she is wearing a rich chestnut brown shade that goes well with her cool, fair skin tone and her dark blue eyes.

Anna Kendrick is an American actress and singer, who has appeared in the Pitch Perfect movies, as well as the Twilight Saga.

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

Placeholder articles

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. Part to the Right

Placeholder articles

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

4. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Placeholder articles

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

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.

6. 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.
