Katharine McPhee Medium Wavy    Brunette   Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

The ends and long layers of this hairstyle are jagged cut then styled into loose waves for movement and shape. This look is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs regular trims to prevent split ends. A little product is needed for shine and hold.

Katharine McPhee looks stunning here in a wavy shoulder length bob. She has an oval face shape with a strong jaw line, which is softened up nicely with the wavy texture of her thick locks. Katharine has a high forehead with a rounded hairline, which is ideal for the sharp center part seen here and her grown out fringe. Her eyes and cheekbones become the focus with this cut and the beachy finish gives her a cool, edgy look. This hairstyle can work for both day and night and is perfect for women who want a versatile and easy to style ‘do.

Katharine has a warm complexion and brown eyes which makes her best suited to golden brown and blonde tones. Here she opts for a chestnut brown base and golden blonde highlights throughout that gives her hair a warm sun-kissed finish. This hair color brightens up her complexion and brings out her eye color as well.

Katharine McPhee is an American pop singer, songwriter and actress. She gained fame in 2006 as the runner-up on the fifth season of American Idol.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

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 the Middle

step 2

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.


3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

step 3

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.


4. Blow-dry the Back Under

step 4

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.


5. Blow-dry Left Side Back

step 5

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.


6. Blow-dry Right Side Back

step 6

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.


7. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 7

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


8. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 8

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.


9. Apply Hairspray

step 9

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.
