Description

Slight 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.

Gemma Aterton has striking facial features and an square face shape with a strong jaw line, which is softened up nicely by her waved layers here. 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 and low forehead the best. The blunt cut ends give her hair a thicker appearance in addition to added body and volume, which is important for her fine hair type. A side part finishes this 'do off with a chic look and balances out her jawline.

Gemma has a warm complexion with amber eyes. This coloring is best paired with brunette, auburn or red locks. Here, she goes for an chestnut brown base with some subtle golden highlights throughout. This color works nicely with her complexion and gives her an all-over warm glow, while bringing out her adorable freckles.

Gemma Christina Arterton is an English actress. Arterton made her film debut in the comedy film St Trinian's.

Styling Steps

1. 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.

2. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers

Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.

3. Use a Small Radial Brush

Brushsmall

A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. 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 Forward to the Left

To blow-dry your bangs to the side, clip the back and side sections up, leaving just your bangs out. Place your brush beneath your bangs, holding your hair to the side and remembering to hold the tension between your hair and brush. With your blow-dryer on a low setting, apply heat by starting at the roots and make sure to stretch your hair out to the ends. Repeat until your hair is dry.

5. Lift Roots Using Wax

Toplifting

Apply some hard wax to your fingertips and then rub it into your roots while lifting your strands for soft volume.

6. Style Bangs to the Left Using Wax
