Soft waves are added to the sides and back of this style to give it movement and 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.
Model Cara Delevingne has striking facial features and a strong bone structure, which is nicely highlighted by her soft wavy tresses here. Having a square face shape, Cara has a low hairline to contend with and a wide, defined chin area. 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 Cara. The blunt ends give her hair a thicker appearance in addition to added body and volume. She would also look great in bangs as it would give her broad forehead some camouflage, however the off-center part is working well for her too.
Cara has a warm, fair complexion with icy blue eyes. This coloring is best paired with light blonde or caramel locks. Here, she goes for a wheat blonde base with highlights throughout. This color brightens up her complexion and gives her an all-over warm glow, while bringing out her light eyes even more.
Cara Delevingne is an English fashion model and actress. She signed with Storm Model Management after leaving school in 2009.

1. Apply Gel Spray to Roots
Hold the gel spray no closer than 3 inches from your hair and then evenly mist the gel spray into the roots to create a stronger hold style. Gel spray will hold well and will not look wet or weigh the hair down. Using your gel spray in this fashion will create added hold and a longer lasting style.
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.
A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.
4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush
Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.
5. Use a Large Curling Iron
A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.
6. 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.
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.
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.
