Description

This sexy 'do is blow-waved beautifully to smooth down the top while showing off the layers cut through the sides and back. This hairstyle is perfect for day or night occasion and easy to re-create at home. Product is needed for hold and shine and regular trims will help prevent split ends.

Nina Dobrev looks gorgeous here in a simple side-parted ‘do. Nina has small, delicate facial features that can get overwhelmed with long, thick, hair, but keeping it simple as seen here helps to remedy that problem. Nina has a low, broad forehead that looks best with a grown out fringe and side part. The flip she has created at the part gives her a boost of height at the front, which benefits her low, straight hairline. Nina has a thick hair texture, which works best in styles that are long, but layered for easy styling. The slight waves at the ends give her hairstyle extra body, but this ‘do would also look good worn sleek and straight too.

Nina has an olive complexion and dark eyes making her suited to brunette and deep red hair the best. Here, she goes with her natural chocolate brown tone at the roots with caramel brown highlights throughout. This gives her complexion a warm glow and makes her eye color pop.

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. Part to the Right

step 3

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.


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. Wax Side Behind Ear

step 7

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


8. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 8

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


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.
