Soft waves are added to the sides and back of this style to give this look movement and subtle shape. This casual 'do is easy to re-create with the right tools and needs product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims will also help maintain a healthy look and feel by preventing split ends.
Ali Hillis has dainty facial features and a strong jawline, which is nicely complimented by her soft wavy tresses here. Having an oblong face shape, Ali has a wide, broad forehead to contend with and a more vertical face shape. Voluminous hairstyles that have lots of body and volume around the jaw and neck area are ideal for her as they balance out her face shape the best. This simple wavy bob does just that for Ali, while the blunt ends give her fine hair a thicker appearance. She would look great in bangs as it would give her broad forehead some camouflage, however the center part is working well for her too.
Ali has a fair, warm skin tone and cool blue eyes. This coloring is best paired with beige blondes, but it is also possible for ladies with this complexion and eye color to wear golden and caramel shades too. Here, Ali goes for a dark golden blonde that has a natural looking finish. This color brightens up her complexion and gives her an all over warm glow.
Alecia "Ali" Hillis is an American actress and voice actress who appeared in television and film roles with a voice character in a number of video games.

Use a medium curling iron to get these corkscrew waves.
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.
2. Use a Medium Radial Brush
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.
3. Blow-dry Straight Back
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.
4. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
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.
5. Blow-dry the 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.
6. Use a Large Curling Iron
A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.
7. 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.
8. 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.
