Description

Layers are cut all through the back and sides of this highlighted bob to encourage movement all over for a soft finish. This short sassy 'do is perfect to compliment a long face and needs product to pinch through the ends for a textured look and feel.

Melora Hardin is flaunting a cool short wavy hairstyle here that has a windblown finish to it. This hairstyle looks great on her oblong face shape and is ideal for her high, straight hairline. This ‘do gives Melora oodles of volume at the crown and has tons of texture throughout. Ladies with a fine hair texture like her will benefit from this hairstyle that makes the hair appear thicker thanks to the body-boosting waves and layered ends. Melora has gone with a side-swept fringe that camouflages her high forehead and gives her 'do a sexy peek-a-boo effect.

Melora’s color is another stand out feature of this ‘do. Her ash blonde base has been highlighted with streaks of soft gold and light ash tones, giving her locks an ultra light and soft finish. This hair hue looks lovely with her fair, cool complexion and blue eyes.

Melora Hardin is an American actress and singer, known for her roles as Jan Levinson on NBC's The Office and Trudy Monk on USA's Monk.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

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 to the Left

Placeholder articles

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.

3. Use a Small Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

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

Placeholder articles

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. Scrunch Dry the Hair with Fingers

Placeholder articles

Tilt your head forward and then run your fingers through, scrunching as you go, until dry. Once your hair is dry, place the strands into the desired position.

6. Use Medium Hot Rollers

Placeholder articles

A medium hot roller is used to give your hair looser curls and can also be used for body.

7. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side

Placeholder articles

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.

8. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically in the Back

Placeholder articles

Take a section of hair from the nape 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 down the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

9. Apply Hot Rollers to Bangs

Placeholder articles

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.

10. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

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.
