Long layers are cut around the sides and front of these locks to lighten the length and to add subtle movement to the mid-lengths to ends. The bangs are smoothed down to frame the top of the face and completes the over-all look magnificently. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help prevent split ends.
Jenny Lewis looks lovely here in long flowing locks and an eye-skimming fringe. This hairstyle is ideal for her oblong face shape which benefits from full bangs to cover a high forehead, and layers that frame her jaw line to reduce the appearance of any excess length in the face. Jenny has a fine hair texture which can be problematic when wearing the hair long, but the blunt cut ends and curls help to alleviate this problem. To bring the focus to her eyes and cheekbones, Jenny has opted for an arched fringe that frames this area nicely.
Here, Jennyâ€™s hair color is a soft copper brown tone that matches her cool complexion well. This hair color has subtle warmth to it that gives her skin tone a nice glow, plus it brings out her hazel eye color. To maintain a natural, healthy look, Jenny has chosen an all-over color rather than go for a highlighted look.

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. 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 Bangs Forward
When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.
4. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off
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.
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.
