A wavy shoulder-length hairstyle is what modern women have fallen in love with lately. It works well on oval and round face shapes, but the shape of this 'do is perfect to complement an oblong face shape and needs product for hold and shine. The side swept bangs are ideal for camouflaging a high forehead and will need regular trims to hold their shape. Longer than average hair is also looked into this kind of hairstyle for the bright and lively appearance. These side-swept bangs make it more stylish and classic looking. Medium wavy hair has a different feeling than other types of hair since it is neither straight nor curly. The look is natural, making it easy to maintain and complement any facial features. You can style medium-wavy hair with bangs in many different ways; those with medium-wavy hair usually choose hairstyles with side-swept bangs because they are easier to maintain. An easy way to style this particular cut is a layered bob that opens over at the jawline, exposing the sides of your face, or pinned-back bangs.

Trimming your hair on a regular basis will help prevent split ends and keep your hair looking healthy and beautiful over time. What's the best part? You only need a few minutes to get the benefits of frequent trimming.

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.

step 2

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.

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.

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.

step 5

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.

step 6

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.

step 7

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

step 8

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

step 9

Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

step 10

Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

step 11

Take your front bang section and roll it up into your hot roller in a forward direction so that the hair curls under. Continue applying hot rollers along the top of your head in the opposite direction, going backwards. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

step 12

Apply gel to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.

step 13

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.

step 14

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.
