Gwen Stefani Long Straight     Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

Gwen showed off her platinum blonde locks in this stylish ha;f updo with only the crown teased and pinned to the head. The rest is left out showing off the soft movement added to the ends. This stunning 'do need product to add shine and to keep it in place.

Gwen Stefani wows us with yet another Sixties–inspired voluminous hairdo on the red carpet. Gwen has an oval face shape and strong features and can pretty much pull anything off. Styles like this one are extra flattering for her as they pump up the volume of her locks and give her a vintage vixen look. The bouffant at the top is ideal for softening up her angles, and the large bouncy curls finish her look off to perfection. This is a head-turning ‘do that looks best in a vibrant hair color.

Speaking of which, Gwen’s signature platinum blonde tone is an excellent match for this bouffant hairdo. The color not only flatters her fair complexion and dark brown eyes, but gives her hair a glamorous Sixties finish. No highlights are needed in this ultra light blonde tone, it looks best on its own.

Gwen Stefani is an American singer-songwriter, fashion designer, and actress. She is the co-founder and lead vocalist of the pop band No Doubt.

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. Use a Large Radial Brush

step 2

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.


3. Blow-dry the Back Under

step 3

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.


4. Blow-dry the Sides Under

step 4

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.


5. Blow-dry the Crown

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.


6. Tease Hair

step 6

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.


7. Pin Hair

step 7

Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.


8. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 8

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.


9. Apply Hairspray

step 9

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.
