If you love the bold personality of the sixties, there is a hairstyle to fit your personality. It is a long hairdo that is inspired from the late 1960s. Gone are the days of dowdy and dull, because the sixties are all about being bold, strong, and beautiful. This Sixties-inspired 'do here is with a long eye-skimming fringe and wispy layers throughout the lengths and ends. This hairstyle is a combination of long hair and straight hair. The hair on the top, sides, and back is cut short, while the fringe is longer and layered at the front. The crown is teased to achieve lift and height, making this hairdo perfect for formal and casual occasions. The color used for this hairdo is Brunette. This haircut will be good for a round face shape and an oval one because they are both symmetrical; hence this hairstyle will balance out their features. It suits women with straight or wavy hair, but those with curly hair may find it challenging to maintain this look unless they use heat protection products.

Regular trims are needed after four to six weeks to prevent split ends and keep this hairstyle in shape. You might need a little product to tame fly-away hair. Styling your hair can take some time, but it can be a breeze with the right products! We suggest using a moisturizer and moulding cream to style your locks. These products will help add hydration and hold to your hair, giving you the perfect style in no time.

Styling Steps

1. Part the Middle

step 1

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

2. Apply Moisturizer

step 2

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.

3. Blow-dry Straight Back

step 3

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.

4. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

step 4

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.

5. Blow-dry the Crown

step 5

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

6. Blow-dry Bangs Forward

step 6

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.

7. Style Bangs Forward Using Moulding Cream

step 7

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then using your fingers, rake through your bangs to the ends for hold and texture.

8. Style Sides Out Using Moulding Cream

step 8

To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. The more moulding cream and the more pinching that you apply, the more textured and pasty the result.
