Description

These blonde locks are blow-waved perfectly to add body and lift at the crown while smoothing down the lengths and ends. Round-brushing gives this 'do a soft and sleek finish with a slight curl in the ends. This hairstyle is great to complement a square face and is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks.

Melissa Ordway goes for a sleek ‘do here that gives her a sophisticated and sexy look. This hairstyle is ideal for showing off her square face shape and large facial features. The off-center part flatters her low forehead and keeps the focus on her eyes and cheekbones. The volume at the roots gives the rest of her ‘do body where it is needed most and prevents it from falling flat, which can be a common problem for this hair type. The layers cut in at the ends frame her face nicely and add a soft finish to this ‘do.

Melissa has blue eyes and a cool skin tone, making her suitable to wheat, beige and icy white blonde tones the best. Here she has chosen soft wheat blonde highlights that give her hair a glossy finish and compliments her fair skin and blue eyes nicely.

Melissa Ordway-Gaston is an American actress and model. She has modeled in many campaigns and acted in such films as 17 Again and on television in Privileged.

Styling Steps

1. Part to the Left

Placeholder articles

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.

2. Use a Large Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

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

Placeholder articles

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

Placeholder articles

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

Placeholder articles

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. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Placeholder articles

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

7. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

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.

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.
