Kristin Cavallari Long Wavy     Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

Kristin Cavallari arrived at the Los Angeles Birthday Party Celebration with her golden locks dressed in soft waves and showing off her sexy layers. Here, Kristin goes for a longer, more golden 'do. Her mane definitely has a nice gloss to it, but the curls are a little too perfect and could do with some tousling up. The back and sides were layered from the mid lengths to create movement, which enhanced her waves. This style is perfect for those with fine to medium hair.

Kristin keeps her makeup warm and glowing... maybe too glowing with the amount of bronzer she has used on her cheeks. For a more natural look, use a light dusting of bronzer on the sides of the cheekbones, not the apples.

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. Use a Large Radial Brush

step 2

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.


3. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

step 3

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.


4. Blow-dry the Sides Under

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.


5. Use a Medium Curling Iron

step 5

A medium curling iron is used to create medium sized curls.


6. Use a Curling Iron to Curl the Back

step 6

Starting from the back, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed.


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

step 7

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. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 8

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


9. Lift Roots Using Wax

step 9

Apply some hard wax to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for soft volume.


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.
