Waves are dressed through the lengths and ends of these golden locks to give the overall style texture and volume. 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.
Rachel Platten looks gorgeous here in a voluminous, feminine long hairstyle. Having an oval face shape and high, rounded hairline, her face looks best in â€˜dos with fringe and a longer length. This layered 'do creates a nice frame for her face and allows her hairâ€™s naturally thick texture to do its thing, adding body and bounce all over. The layers in the front of this cut around the face softens up her jaw line area and gives her tresses some movement. This cut also highlights her strong cheekbones thanks to the center parted bangs that allows the hair to drape nicely around her eyes and fall past her shoulders. This cut has an edgy, Seventies feel to it that is ideal for women who like long hair but crave some extra style.
Rachel has a warm complexion with golden undertones and amber eyes. This makes her suited to hair colors that have a warm base to them, like the medium golden blonde and light caramel blonde tones seen here. This natural-looking shade is ideal for her complexion and it brings out the intensity of her eye color. A darker root area and lighter tips gives her 'do a beachy feel.
Rachel Ashley Platten is an American singer and songwriter. She released three independent albums between 2003 and 2014, before signing with Columbia Records in early 2015.

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
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. Blow-dry Bangs Forward
When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.
4. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers
Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.
5. Scrunch Gel-Wax Through Hair with Fingers
Apply gel-wax to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.
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.
