This naturally wavy hairdo is worn over the shoulders showing off the ombre hair color starting from a light color on the ends ending with the darkest color at the roots. Long layers are cut into the edges to lighten edges, enhancing the movement of the natural kinks. Regular trims is needed to prevent split ends maintaining a healthy look and feel.
German singer-songwriter Lena usually has a classic sense of style about her, but what about that new hair color? Fans either love or loathe this bold look on Lena, who is usually rocking deep brown glossy locks in a more demure fashion. Here, Lena's hair color graduates from brown-black at the roots all the way down to a light brassy blonde at the ends. Her perfectly - coiffed curls have given way to loose rock-chick waves as well, giving Lena a completely new look. Now, let's take a closer look at the color.
This color technique has been ultra-trendy for a while now. In fact, many would say this graduated look is well and truly out of fashion, so no points can be given to Lena for being a style innovator. The technique and execution of this trendy look is another issue here. This dramatic black to blonde look is difficult for even the most seasoned colorist to pull off with ease, so it's no surprise that Lena's hair looks blotchy and uneven. To pull this color technique off, the colors should vary by a few shades only, not the entire color spectrum. On the positive side, this does give Lena an edgier, rock-chick feel which may help her break into some new markets in the music business. But career aside, what is your verdict on Lena's hairâ€”do you like it, or absolutely loathe it?

Use your finishing products to smooth down the ends and direct your hair into place.
Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
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 Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off
Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.
4. 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.
5. 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.
