Amy Smart Medium Straight    Blonde  Half Up Hairstyle with Side Swept Bangs - Visual Story


The top section of this style is pulled back and pinned to the head while the length is left out to fall on the shoulders to create this casual look. The bangs are swept across to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all look perfectly. This look is best suited for those with those with fine to medium hair.

Amy Smart looks lovely here in a half up-do that shows off all of her best features. This hairstyle is casual enough for the daytime but can also be dressed up for a night on the town. This ‘do works particularly well for Amy who has a fine hair texture that benefits from the extra volume created by this hairstyle. Amy has a heart shaped face which has the typical strong cheekbones and chin area. This hairstyle flatters her face shape nicely by showing off her best features while adding softness around the face thanks to the subtle waves throughout.

Amy’s color is another gorgeous feature of this ‘do. She has a warm complexion with hazel green eyes, making her suited to golden blonde and beige hair colors. Here she is wearing a beautiful sandy blonde shade that has champagne highlights throughout. This flatters her fair complexion and brings out her bright green eyes nicely.

Amy Smart is an American actress and former fashion model.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

step 1

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

2. Part to the Left

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.

3. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

step 3

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

4. Pin Hair

step 4

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

5. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 5

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.

6. Apply Hairspray

step 6

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.
