Cressida Bonas Long Straight    Brunette and  Blonde Two-Tone   Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

These gorgeous locks are blow-waved beautifully to smooth down the top while adding subtle flicks to the front layers. This hairstyle is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims will help prevent split ends.

Cressida Bonas goes for a Seventies-inspired hairstyle here with long flipped out layers. This ‘do is ideal for women like Cressida who have fine to medium long hair that needs some added body and bounce. Cressida also has a square face shape and high forehead, which greatly benefits from the long layered fringe that frames her forehead and cheekbones. Squares are advised to stay away from center parts in most cases, however it can be done when paired with this style of heavily layered fringe.

Cressida is a natural blonde but has gone for a reverse ombre effect here, where the top layers are light brown and the ends and underlayers are lighter blonde. This peek-a-boo blonde effect works well with her cut and also flatters her tanned complexion and blue eyes. This hair color will work well on both natural blondes and brunettes.

Cressida Bonas is a British actress, dancer and model.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

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

step 2

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

step 3

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 Left Side Back

step 4

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.


5. Blow-dry Right Side Back

step 5

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.


6. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 6

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


7. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 7

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.


8. Apply Hairspray

step 8

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.
