Description

This feathered 'do is ideal for fine hair that can fall flat in longer styles. There is lots of layering here which adds volume and texture to this hair type and makes it an easy wash-and-go style. This sassy 'do is perfect to complement a triangular shaped face and needs product added to the roots for volume and height.

Our model is flaunting a jaw length bob hairstyle here that has a fabulous windblown finish to it. This hairstyle looks great on her triangular face shape and is ideal for her low, straight hairline. This ‘do gives our model oodles of volume at the crown, thanks to the height at the roots and the flipped over part. Ladies with fine hair like hers will benefit from this ‘do that adds volume and height where it is needed most. Rather than go for bangs with this bob, our model has gone with a flipped over, grown out fringe that creates a sexy finish while showing off her stunning facial features and really opens her face up.

Our model’s color is another stand-out feature of this ‘do. Her hair is a rich, glossy chocolate brown shade that is ideal for her fair, cool complexion. This hair hue looks lovely with her dark eyes and rosy cheeks. Regular touch ups are needed to keep this shade looking glossy and to counteract fading that occurs from sunlight and other environmental factors. Subtle highlights have been added throughout for a sun-kissed finish.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

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. Part to the Right

Partright

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Use a Large Radial Brush

Brushlarge

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.

4. Blow-dry Bangs to the Right

Bangsbackright

To blow-dry your bangs you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the bangs are completely dry.

5. Blow-dry the Top Section Back

Backtop

To blow-dry the top section back you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure that the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly lifting your hair up and working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the top section is completely dry.

6. 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.

7. Blow-dry the Back Under

Backunder

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.

8. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Sidesunder

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.

9. 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.

10. Style Hair Back and to the Left with Fingers and Gel

Topbackleft

Use your fingers and your gel to pull your hair up and back while styling it to the left.

11. 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.
