Penelope Cruz is sharing a classic hairstyle from the 78th Venice Film Festival that she has put her own personal twist on. Firstly, her hair color is a classic because she has natural highlights throughout her hair which is always a great go-to hair color trend to follow. Once her hair has been styled, she has lifted her hair at the roots and this helps to create volume. It is a great technique to use for those who want to create the illusion of having fuller and thicker hair than you actually do. The parting down one side helps to frame her face as well as soften the edges. Due to the way in which her bangs fall across her face, glasses will not suit this look. You will need to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your ends stay healthy. If you are going to go with the highlight trend as well, you will need to touch up your highlights once every 6 weeks or so to ensure that your color stays vibrant and your roots do not show through the color.
Finish off your look with a gorgeous necklace and bracelet as it will help to create the illusion of an oval face shape and you are ready to rock the day!
Brunette and Blonde Highlights
31 - 40, 41 - 50, and 51 - 60
Blow Dryer and Curling Iron
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
2. 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.
3. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right
When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.
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.
