Hairstyle Popularity Rating: ★★★★★


The sides and back of this look are pulled up and secured at the top of the head to add movement and shape. This fancy hairstyle is perfect to turn heads at any special occasion and needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Leona Lewis is fond of wearing head turning hairstyles and her latest one is no exception. This 'do looks fabulous on her oblong face shape and brings all of the attention to her stunning features. Leona has large, expressive features so rocking a super short pixie cut is easy for her to do, even if it's a faux pixie! Here she has managed to create the appearance of short hair by sweeping her long curls to the top of her head. This hairstyle shows off her long neck and high cheekbones, while the layers in the front covers her high forehead. Overall this is a great look for Leona that works with her face shape and hair type well.

Leona has a very soft-looking complexion that is a gorgeous light brown tone. She also has eyes that are green which make her suited to dark brown hair the best, however she can also pull off light brunette and blonde too thanks to her complexion. Here, she has chosen a light blonde shade to complete her ‘do. This is an excellent color choice for her as it makes her eyes pop and gives her complexion a warm glow.

Leona Lewis is a British singer, songwriter and animal welfare campaigner. She was born and raised in the London Borough of Islington, London, where she attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology.

Styling Steps

1. Apply 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 a Diffuser to Dry Curls


Using your diffuser, gently scrunch your hair dry in a rotating direction. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off as leaving a little bit of moisture will ensure that your curls do not frizz.

3. Scrunch Moulding Cream Through Hair with Fingers


Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.

4. Tease Hair


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.

5. Pin Hair


Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.
