Description

Soft waves are added to the sides and back of this uniform-length 'do to give this look movement and subtle shape. This casual hairstyle is easy to re-create with the right tools and needs product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims will also help maintain a healthy look and feel by preventing split ends.

Ashley Benson has petite yet expressive facial features and a strong bone structure, which is nicely highlighted by her soft wavy tresses here. Having a heart face shape, Ashley has a wide, broad forehead and cheeks to contend with as well as a narrow chin area. Voluminous hairstyles that have lots of body and volume around the neck area are ideal for her as they balance out her face shape the best. This simple wavy 'do does just that for Ashley, while the blunt ends give her fine hair a thicker appearance. She would look great in bangs as it would give her broad forehead some coverage, however the grown out fringe is working well for her too.

Ashley has a peaches and cream skin tone, light eyes and naturally brunette hair. Here, she goes for dark brown roots for a natural look, with golden blonde tones through the lengths and ends. This color brightens up her complexion and gives her an all-over warm glow while bringing out her dazzling blue eyes.

Ashley Victoria Benson is an American actress and model. She is known for her role as Hanna Marin on the teen drama television series Pretty Little Liars.

Styling Steps

1. Part the Middle

Partmiddle

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. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers

Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.

3. Use a Large Curling Iron

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

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

Midsidecurlingiron

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.

5. Scrunch Hair Using Wax and Fingers

Apply your wax to the ends of your hair and then lightly pinch and scrunch the hair before allowing your wax to set.

6. Style Sides Out Using Wax

Sidesout

To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. Be careful not to overdo that wax or your result will be a flat and limp style.

7. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
