Blessed with shiny dark locks, exotic features and that glowing complexion, it must be hard to look anything but fabulous. However, her new hair color has received some less than favorable feedback. Let’s see what is going on with Lea Michele's hair lately.

This ombre hairdo is left to fall naturally over the shoulders showing off movement and shape. The jagged cut bangs are worn flat to frame the top of the face and completes the over-all look perfectly. Regular trims is needed to prevent split ends.

Lea is usually rocking a deep espresso brown shade, which looks fabulous with her dark brown eyes and tanned complexion. Here, she has added heavy highlights in a dark golden blonde and light brown to give her a dark on top, light on the bottom look. Was she trying to go for the ever-popular ombré look? If so, it’s a fail because it doesn’t have that nice fade as seen on celebs such as Jessica Biel and Drew Barrymore. In fact, she has lightened her hair pretty much everywhere except for the front section, which looks odd. The lighter color itself is quite nice, but come on Lea, go big or go home. Why not just do your entire head? Boldly placed highlights can look uber cool and trendy, but unfortunately Lea’s just shy of the mark on this one. What do you think of her new ‘do? Let us know if you like it or loathe it!

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. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.
