Wendy Williams Long Wavy Golden Brunette and Dark Blonde Two-Tone Hairstyle

Added: 04 Apr 2012

Wendy Williams is looking hot with her latest blonde to brown hair color. Although this color combo is nothing new, Wendy has managed to make it look classy and beautifully pulled off, mainly due to the fantastic shades that are featured throughout her 'do.

The main idea for two-toned 'do is big and bouncy. A combination of medium to long layers are cut through the back and sides to encourage the body and fullness making it a great hairstyle to frame a long face. This 'do is perfect for those with naturally thick hair and will need regular trims to prevent split ends.

Wendy has a warm skin tone, and her blonde and browns flatter her complexion nicely. If you have a similar skin tone and want this look, here's how to get it.

If your natural hair color is black or dark brown, you will need to lighten it up to mocha brown so it will mesh with the blonde tones-anything darker will look too harsh. The middle layers need to be the happy medium between blonde and brown, which is usually a warm cinnamon shade on the tips. Here, you can see Wendy's middle layer goes from light blonde at the roots to cinnamon at the ends - this is where it gets tricky so get a professional to do it! Her top layers are a light warm buttery blonde which goes great with her warm skin tone.

Overall, this is a pretty look that is something different from the same old, same old. However, be forewarned that this is a high maintenance hair color technique, so be prepared to make your hairstylist your new BFF.

Styling Steps

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 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.

step 3

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.

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

Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the velcro 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 to the roots. Continue applying the velcro rollers all the way through the entire hair for a full volume finish throughout the sides. Keep the rollers in your hair for approximately 20 minutes.

step 7

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

step 8

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 9

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.

step 10

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 11

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.
