Description

The ends and long layers of this style are blunt cut and blow-waved perfectly to smooth down the top for a sexy look and feel. The long layers cut around the collarbone softens the face and completes the over-all hairstyle brilliantly. Product is needed to tame fly-away hair.

Our model goes for a gorgeous look here with a center-parted blunt cut that falls to her chest. This hairstyle might be simple but it is anything but boring. With a long blunt layers that end at her collarbone, this ‘do is the perfect way to compliment an oval or oblong face shape. The heavy layers and sharp center part flatter her high, rounded hairline and camouflage her angles around the jawline. This ‘do can also be pulled back for extra versatility with the longer front layers left out to frame the face.

Our model loves to experiment with her hair colors, especially with different blonde tones. Here she is rocking a medium golden brown base and dark copper blonde tips that look fantastic with her warm complexion and blue eyes. The lighter tips show off her haircut and gives her complexion a sun-kissed glow. This is a natural warm brunette color combo that works well for her coloring and thick, straight hair type. Extra care must be taken to keep the ends looking healthy- regular trims will help, as will applying a smoothing shine or moulding cream through the ends to finish.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

Moisturizer

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.

2. Part the Middle

Partmiddle

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. Use a Paddle Brush

Paddlebrush

A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.

4. Blow-dry Straight Back

Backstraight

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.

5. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

Sidesstraight

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.

6. Blow-dry the Crown

Crown

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.

7. Blow-dry Left Side Forward

Sidesforwardleft

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.

8. Blow-dry Right Side Forward

Sidesforwardright

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.

9. Use a Straightening Iron

Iron

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.

10. Apply Smoothing Shine

Smoothingshinefinishing

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.
