Aubrey O Day Long Wavy Casual Hairstyle - Bright Red Hair Color

Hairstyle Popularity Rating: ★★★★★


Aubrey has left the blonde behind for bright and bold red. This hair color also looks great on her, thanks to her warm skin tone and bright blue eyes. This hair color is anything but natural, but Aubrey pulls it off without a hitch as it matches her larger than life personality.

To style, Aubrey has kept her simple long wavy look. This is a good idea when wearing a bold hair colour as it keeps the focus on the stunning hair hue. If you want to get this shade, keep in mind it could take a lot of chemical processing depending on your current hair color.

The bold color of these locks alone makes this hairstyle a definite head-turner. The soft waves added to the mid-lengths gives this luscious style movement and shape making it a perfect style to frame a round face. To maintain long healthy hair, regular trims every 4- 6weeks is important.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse


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


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 Large Radial Brush


A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. 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


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 the Sides Under


To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

6. Use a Large Curling Iron


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

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


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.

8. Apply Smoothing Shine


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.

9. Apply Hairspray


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.
