Long Two-Tone Red and Dark Brunette Waves

Added: 19 Feb 2014
A luxurious, brilliant and romantic hairstyle, this is a long chic 'do that incorporates soft waves into the hair. It is colored fiery red contrasted by brunette roots to give it depth and dimension. It is wavy and richly textured, showing off cascading curls that reach the shoulders adding length to this particular cut.

This hairstyle can be a perfect choice for both formal and informal occasions. Our model has a long hair length with a side part, making it ideal for women with long face shapes who want to add more volume. The waves in this hairstyle look natural, as if the wind just blew them. Loose waves are added to the mid-lengths to ends of this casual 'do to allow for movement and bounce. This style also shows off the darker color tone underneath the top layers. This style has a casual and fun feel that is perfect for long faces. The layers of dark and light brunette create depth and dimension to complement the length of the face. This 'do will perfectly complement long faces with round or oval shapes. It will add texture to the crown area and complete your look by adding height to your hair.

You can maintain this hairstyle with regular trimming after 4 to 6 weeks and toning treatments to maintain your color into a red and dark brunette two-tone if you see your roots turning grey. This is an easy hairstyle to re-create at home and needs a little product for shine and hold.

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.

step 2

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.

step 3

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

step 4

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

step 5

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.

step 6

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

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.

step 8

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

step 9

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.

step 10

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.
