Leona Lewis is showing us how important it is to show off our natural hair texture. She is showing off her gorgeous waves that have just been lifted at the roots and she has used products to ensure that the curls have a lot of bounce, which is lovely. This hairstyle is ideal for those who want to create the illusion of having thicker hair than they really do. The curls create volume and life to the overall hairstyle. She also has a two-tone hair color which looks stunning. This color option is easy to maintain because you do not have to worry about going to get your color done as often. The point of this color is that your roots should show to help create that ombre effect.
You are going to need to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your ends stay healthy and that the color takes better. If you are going to do the color as well, you need to touch up your color once every 6 weeks or so to ensure that the color stays vibrant but if you want to push the appointment by a few days, that is also okay.
When it comes to your makeup application, you want to keep it light and natural. Use golds and browns on your lids. Do not forget to add some highlighter and contouring to help ensure that you get the perfect oval face shape illusion. Add a bit of powder to lock your makeup in place and you are ready for your day out on the town!

3. 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.
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.
