Description

Large bouncy curls are added all over this layered 'do to give this 'do maximum movement and shape. This wild 'do is surprisingly 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.

Our model has bold and expressive facial features and a strong bone structure, which is nicely highlighted by her volumized wavy tresses here. Having an oblong face shape, she has a high forehead to contend with as well as a more vertical shape to her face. Voluminous hairstyles that have lots of body and volume around the face are ideal for her as they balance out the height in her face shape, making it appear more oval. This sexy curly 'do does just that for her, while the blunt ends give her 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. Backcombing the curls gives the hair extra volume and softness, while finishing it up with wax adds some edgy texture. This hairstyle is ideal for ladies with curly or wavy hair, but can also be re-created on straight hair by using hot rollers and some strong hold hair products.

Our model has a warm, fair skin tone, dark eyes and naturally dark blonde hair. Here, she goes for a sun-soaked look with a golden blonde base and light honey blonde highlights throughout. This color brightens up her complexion and gives her an all-over warm glow. Plus it makes her dark eyes pop even more, thanks to the contrast. regular color touch ups are needed to freshen up fading and get rid of brassy tones.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

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 Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Hair Messy

Dryoffmessy

Using your blow-dryer, flip your head upside down and dry your hair using your fingers until your hair is completely dry. Remember, the messier, the better.

3. Part to the Left

Partleft

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye 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 left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

4. Use Large Hot Rollers

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

5. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side

Verticalsideroller

Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

6. Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back

Backdownroller

Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

7. Tease Hair

Tease

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

8. 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.

9. Style the Back Messy Using Wax

Backmessy

Apply wax to your palms and then roughly rub the wax into back of your style. Use circular hand movements for a messier finish.

10. Style Sides Messy Using Wax

Sidesmessy

Apply wax to your sides using your fingertips and mess the hair in a circular motion, piecing the ends out as you go and as messy as you like. For a softer hold, use only a small amount of wax.

11. 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.
