Only long layers are cut around the sides and back of these gorgeous tresses to lighten the length making it easy to blow-wave perfectly adding a little movement to the mid-lengths to ends. This soft and simple hairstyle is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair.
Dana Delaney goes for a soft and casual look here by letting her long, thick locks hang loose. Dana has an oval face shape and high, straight hairline which makes her best suited to styles that have a grown out fringe and some layering throughout for movement. Dana has a thick hair type which benefits from the longer layers cut in throughout the ends and around her face. This takes some bulk out of her hair and gives it more shape. Her natural wavy texture is allowed to come through with this â€˜do, which adds volume and body throughout.
As for her color, Dana goes for a reddish-brown tone that looks great with her skin tone and eye color. Dana has freckled skin and green eyes, making her well suited to all shades of red and warm brunette tones. Here she goes for a light auburn brown that brings out the warmth in her complexion and intensifies her green eye color.
Dana Delaney is an American film, stage, and television actress, producer, presenter, and health activist.

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 Medium Radial Brush
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.
3. Blow-dry the Back Under
To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.
4. Blow-dry the Sides Under
To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.
5. 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.
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.
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.
