Kerris Dorsey Long Straight Casual Hairstyle - Brunette Hair Color

Added: 06 Jul 2015
Hairstyle Popularity Rating: ★★★★★


Long layers are sliced down the front and sides of these highlighted tresses then blow-waved smooth for a sleek look and feel. This look is best suited for those with fine to medium hair and perfect to complement a round face. Regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks to prevent split ends.

Kerris Dorsey goes for a cool, casual 'do here that looks great with her square face shape. Like most squares, Kerris needs to stick with a long, layered hairstyle to flatter her face shape. She has a wide jawline and high forehead which makes this simple side-parted 'do ideal for her as it creates a more oblong/oval look to her face. This hairstyle would benefit from some soft waves throughout to add some extra volume, but looks just as good worn straight and sleek as seen here.

Kerris' complexion and eye color works best with autumn tones, so her olive-colored dress and dark reddish blonde hair is perfect for her. She has cool pink undertones to her skin, which is flattered by hair colors with some warmth to them.

Kerris Dorsey is an American actress and singer. She is best known for her role on the TV series Brothers & Sisters.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer


Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

2. Part to the Left


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. Use a Paddle Brush


A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.

4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush


Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.

5. Apply Smoothing Shine


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.
