Description

This medium length 'do is pulled back to the nape of the neck, then twisted and pinned at the back to create this sleek 'do that will turn heads at any occasion. The stunning hairstyle is easy to re-create at home and needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Beth Behrs goes for a modern updo here with a messy knot at the back and sleek bangs in the front. Beth usually keeps her hair short to medium length which suits her square shaped face nicely. Here she softens up her wide jawline by wearing a longer, side swept fringe that sculpts to the face. The deep side part and side-sweeping bangs gives her forehead some coverage while creating a sexy peek-a-boo effect, while the rest of her hair is pinned at the nape in a stylish chignon.

Beth has light blue eyes and a peachy skin tone which makes her suited to soft beige blonde tones and icy platinum shades the best. Here, she goes for a multidimensional blonde base with subtle icy white highlights throughout. This gives her hair a natural looking light blonde shade which flatters her peachy complexion and showcases her light blue eyes. Her roots are a shade darker giving her overall color a natural looking finish.

Beth Behrs is an American actress, best known for her current role as Caroline Channing in the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls.

Styling Steps

1. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Brushmedium

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.

2. Blow-dry Straight Back

Backstraight

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.

3. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

Sidesstraight

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.

4. Blow-dry the Crown

Crown

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

5. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Bangsforwardrightbdry

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

6. Tease Hair

Tease

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.

7. Pin Hair

Pins

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

8. Style Bangs to the Right Using Gel

Apply gel to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go.

9. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
