Tousled layers are dressed through the ends of these sun-kissed locks to give the overall style subtle movement and bounce. This casual style is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims are needed to prevent split ends.
Sarah Jessica Parker looks lovely here in a long windblown hairstyle. Having an oblong face shape and high hairline, her face looks best in â€˜dos with a grown out fringe and longer layers around the chin and cheeks. This simple layered 'do creates a nice frame for her face and allows her hairâ€™s natural texture to do its thing, adding body and bounce all over. The layers in the front of this cut around the jaw line area gives her tresses some movement. This cut also highlights her strong cheekbones thanks to the center part that allows the hair to drape nicely and fall past her shoulders. For a high, rounded hairline however, a side part usually gives better results.
Sarah Jessica has a warm complexion with golden undertones and light blue eyes. This makes her suited to hair colors that have a warm base to them, like the medium golden blonde shade seen here. This natural-looking tone is ideal for her complexion and it brings out her eye color. The bleached out ends give her 'do a beachy finish and brighten up her complexion too.

1. Apply Gel Spray to Roots
Hold the gel spray no closer than 3 inches from your hair and then evenly mist the gel spray into the roots to create a stronger hold style. Gel spray will hold well and will not look wet or weigh the hair down. Using your gel spray in this fashion will create added hold and a longer lasting style.
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.
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 Using a Paddle Brush
Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.
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.
6. Style Sides Down Using Wax
Using a small amount of wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward, pinching motion. For added texture, apply more pinching and more wax.
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.
