Loose waves are dressed through the sides and back of these chestnut locks to give the over-all style movement and bounce. This casual style is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims are needed to prevent split ends.
Jessica Alba looks lovely here in a cool, casual wavy hairstyle. Having an oval face shape and rounded hairline, Jessicaâ€™s face looks best in â€˜dos with a grown out fringe and longer layers around the chin and neck. This layered bob creates a nice frame for her face and allows her hairâ€™s natural texture to do its thing, adding body and bounce all over. A center part finishes this â€˜do off nicely and works well with her high forehead and prominent cheekbones.
Jessica has a warm, fair complexion with golden undertones and dark brown eyes. This makes her suited to hair colors that have a yellow or gold base to them, like the chestnut brown seen here. This natural-looking shade is ideal for her complexion, plus it brings out the intensity of her eye color. It also gives her cheeks a nice rosy glow. The subtle caramel highlights throughout give her 'do a nice finish with lots of shine.
Jessica Alba is an American actress, model and businesswoman. She has won various awards for her acting, including the Choice Actress Teen Choice Award and Saturn Award for Best Actress.

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.

2. Use a Medium Radial Brush
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.
3. Blow-dry Straight Back
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. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. 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. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
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. 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.
Comb your hair into the desired direction that you require for styling.
