Angelina Jolie Long Wavy Chocolate Brunette Hairstyle

Added: 02 Feb 2012
Angelina Jolie has kept her hair the same for eons now. While she experimented in her younger years with pixie cuts, raven black hair and bottle - blonde locks, she has now settled in to her trademark chestnut 'do. It's easy to see why this works for her - it's a low maintenance style (which you need with 6 kids to look after) and always looks gorgeous on the red carpet after a styling team gets through with it.

Angelina is usually seen at events with her hair in a sleek updo or left down and straight, sometimes with a few waves added in for volume. However her look shown here is definitely more girlie than usual and looks exactly like Kate Middleton's signature hairstyle. While Kate's is a deeper shade of brown, Angelina's glossy mane complete with perfect curls at the ends is 100% Duchess of Cambridge, which is not a bad choice. Kate's hairstyle and hair color is now one of the most requested looks and has become known as "The Chelsea Blow-Dry", after the posh area in London where Kate gets her hair done. It could be coincidence, or it could be that Angelina adores Kate's elegant style. In any case, this sophisticated look suits Angie just fine, especially when paired with her soft eye makeup... unlike Kate, who is still married to her signature heavy black liquid liner.

This is a simple hairdo with only soft waves added to the ends to give this low-fuss 'do movement and shape. This is easy to re-create with a curling iron and will need a little product for hold and shine. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks will prevent split ends maintaining a healthy look and feel.

Who do you think works this hairstyle better? Hollywood hottie Angelina, or British beauty Kate?

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.

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.

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.

step 4

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.

step 5

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

step 6

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.

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.

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.
