Alison Brie Long Wavy     Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

These lovely locks are worn over the shoulders showing off the loose waves added to the mid-lengths to ends for shape and movement. This simple 'do is best suited to frame a round face and easy to re-create at home with the right tools. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help prevent split ends.

Alison Brie goes for a soft and feminine look here with her long wavy hairstyle. This ‘do is perfect for her oval face shape and rounded hairline. Her center part and grown out fringe creates an elegant frame for her face, while the curls in the ends give her glossy locks volume and body. Alison has kept her ends blunt with minimal layering throughout to give her strands a thick and healthy appearance. For extra volume, the roots have been backcombed and then smoothed over to create a voluminous look.

Alison has a neutral skin tone and blue eyes, meaning she can pull off both cool and warm hair colors. Here, she sticks to her natural chocolate brown tone which looks fabulous with her dark eyebrows, fair complexion and blue eyes. To give her locks a glossy finish, she has opted for one color all over rather than go for a highlighted look.

Alison Brie is an American actress known for her roles on Community and Mad Men.

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. Part the Middle

step 2

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.


3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

step 3

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.


4. Blow-dry the Back Under

step 4

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.


5. Blow-dry Left 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. Blow-dry Right Side Back

step 6

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.


7. Use a Large Curling Iron

step 7

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.


8. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

step 8

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.


9. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 9

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


10. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 10

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.


11. Apply Hairspray

step 11

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.
