Description

Michelle Stafford here is flaunting an absolutely gorgeous shade of medium brown hair with warm undertones. This hair color looks amazing with her medium fair complexion and light blue eyes. If you have a similar hair color and skin tone, why not try out Michelle's gorgeous lilac makeup—with spring just around the corner, this look is the perfect way to lighten up and freshen up your look. These medium brown locks are left to fall over the shoulder showing off the waves added to the mid-lengths to ends for shape and style. This is a great hairstyle for those with fine to medium hair wanting a look that is easy to re-create at home. Regular trims is needed to maintain a healthy look and feel.

Michelle has used lilac eyeliner on both the top and bottom lashes, although because her eyes are so deep set it is more prominent on the bottom. She has also used a hint of charcoal grey eye shadow on the eyelid, which is a great addition for an evening look. Her dark mascara is kept natural looking so as not to take away from the lilac liner. Try using brown or grey mascara to keep this look soft. On the cheeks, Michelle is wearing a peach shade that gives her a tanned glow with a hint of rosiness. To finish it all off, Michelle has used a gorgeous glossy rose lippie.

Pair this makeup with polished curls like Michelle's, or a trendy topknot for a breezy spring/summer look.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

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.


2. Part Hair in a Zigzag

step 2

Using the corner of your comb, create a straight part and then place your comb at the hairline and drag it through your hair, crisscrossing from left to right as you go. When you reach your crown, lift the comb up and then split the hair to each side, pulling it down to reveal your zigzag part.


3. Use a Medium Radial Brush

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.


4. Blow-dry the Back Under

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.


5. Blow-dry Left Side Back

step 5

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.


6. Blow-dry Right Side Back

step 6

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.


7. Use a Large Curling Iron

step 7

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.


8. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

step 8

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.


9. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 9

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.


10. Apply Hairspray

step 10

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.
