Description

This sleek 'do has minimal layering around the face to show off the hair's natural texture and shine. A small amount of finishing products is all that is needed to complete this style.

Ellie Goulding looks sleek and sophisticated in this simple straight ‘do that falls just past her shoulders. Ellie has an oval face shape with a low forehead and straight hairline, making her best suited to simple, center-parted ‘dos. Her hair’s straight natural texture is highlighted here with this blunt cut, which has soft layering in the front to give it some shape. The rest of the hair is one length, giving Ellie’s tresses a thick, healthy appearance.

As for her color, Ellie is a natural dark blonde but prefers to wear it lighter. Here she is sporting a wheat blonde tone that looks great with her tanned complexion and brown eyes. Instead of going for a highlighted look, Ellie has chosen one monochromatic color which makes her dark eyes pop. A toner may be required to manage excess brassiness in her hair, and regular root touch-ups are also required to keep this color looking freash.

Ellie Goulding is an English singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Styling Steps

1. Comb Hair

Placeholder articles

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

2. Part the Middle

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

3. Blow-dry Straight Back

Placeholder articles

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.

4. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

Placeholder articles

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.

5. Blow-dry Left Side Forward

Placeholder articles

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a forward and downward direction with your blow-dryer above. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly above.

6. Blow-dry Right Side Forward

Placeholder articles

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a forward and downward direction with your blow-dryer above. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly above.

7. Use a Straightening Iron

Placeholder articles

When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

8. 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.
