Description

The sides of this 'do are tucked behind the ear, showing off the textured ends. The top is parted on the side with the long bangs used to soften the face for a fabulous finish. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help maintain this style and product is needed to pinch through the ends.

Christine Lakin looks gorgeous here in a sleek short cut. This ‘do shows off all of her best features and works well with her straight hair texture.Christine has a strong jaw line and high forehead, and an overall square shape to her face. Her tresses look best in styles that frame the face and reduce excess length. This ‘do does just that, with jagged cut layers hugging her cheeks and jawbone while the top layers have been smoothed back behind the ear. The side-parted fringe is perfect for her as it balances out her face shape and brings the attention to her eyes.

Christine’s color is right on point here and is ideal for her look. Having a cool, fair skin tone and light blue eyes she is best suited to light blonde and copper tones of hair. Here she sports a light honey blonde shade that gives her complexion a warm glow while her blue eyes pop!

Christine Lakin is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Alicia "Al" Lambert on the 1990s ABC/CBS situation comedy Step by Step.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Gel Spray

Gelspraytop

Evenly mist gel spray around the top and sides to create a soft hold style. Gel spray will hold well and will not look wet or weigh the hair down.

2. Comb Hair

Comb

Comb your hair into the desired direction that you require for styling.

3. Part to the Left

Partleft

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.

4. Use a Large Radial Brush

Brushlarge

A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.

5. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

Sidesflicks

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.

6. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

Backflicks

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.

7. Blow-dry the Crown

Crown

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.

8. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Bangsforwardrightbdry

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.

9. Style Side Behind Ear Using Gel

Sidesbehindear

Apply a small amount of gel to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.

10. Style the Back Out Using Gel

Backout

Using gel and your fingers grab the mid-lengths of your hair and then drag it out and upwards for a full and messy result.
