McKaley Miller Long Curly Formal Hairstyle - Dark Blonde Hair Color

Added: 25 May 2015
Hairstyle Popularity Rating: ★★★★★


These highlighted locks are pulled over to one side and left out to fall over the opposite shoulder showing off the gorgeous curls added to the mid-lengths to ends. This is easy to achieve with a curling iron and needs product for hold and definition. This hairstyle is perfect to frame a long face for any occasion.

McKaley Miller looks gorgeous in a formal curly hairstyle here. Her long locks have had corkscrew curls added to them, and have retained their shape (rather than pulling apart the curls for a softer look). This is a great way to achieve a more polished and formal curled look. McKaley has a predominantly oval face shape which suits this ‘do well. The side-swept style shows off her face and neck while giving her an overall sophisticated look.

McKaley has naturally dark hair, but has lightened it up to a gorgeous dark golden blonde. Although her skin tone is quite cool and would suit a beige blonde better, she is able to pull off this shade thanks to her dark eyebrows and eye color. This blonde is best suited to women who have warm or tanned complexions.

McKaley Miller is an American actress who is best known for her role on the tv series The Gates and Hart of Dixie.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse


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


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 Medium Radial Brush


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


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 the Sides Under


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.

6. Use a Medium Curling Iron


A medium curling iron is used to create medium sized curls.

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


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.

8. Piece the Ends Using Wax


Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

9. Apply Smoothing Shine


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


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.
