Casual loose waves are dressed through the back and sides of this medium length mane to give the over-all style plenty of movement and bounce. The top is parted on the side and together with the width, makes this a perfect hairstyle to complement a long face. Product is needed to define the waves and regular trims will help prevent split ends.

Amy Poehler tries on a dramatic new dark’ do here with pleasing results. Known for her buttery blonde locks, Amy goes for a new look with a shoulder length wavy brown bob. Amy has elements of both a square and round face shape, so for her it’s best to stay with loose, longer styles. This slightly wavy bob is just right for her and her face shape. The side part breaks up any excess width in her face and the curls soften up her strong jaw line.

Amy’s new color is working well for her too. This gorgeous shade of reddish-brown gives her fair complexion a nice glow and really brings out those blue eyes. The ends are slightly lighter which creates a subtle sun-kissed effect. This shade of brown is ideal for women with fair to medium skin that has warm undertones to it.

Amy Poehler is an American actress, comedian, voice artist, director, producer and writer.

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. Part to the Left


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


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. Use a Large Curling Iron


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

5. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron


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.

6. Piece the Ends Using Wax


Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

7. Apply Hairspray


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.
