These gorgeous brown locks are left out to fall over the shoulders showing off the lovely waves dressed through the mid-lengths to ends for volume and bounce. This stunning 'do is great for any occasion and is easy to re-create with the right tools and product. Regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks to prevent split ends.
Nina Dobrev is working her thick tresses to the maximum here with a voluminous curly â€˜do. Nina has an oval face shape and small, delicate facial features which can be overwhelmed with big hair, but this particular style manages to frame her face without being overpowering. This â€˜do is ideal for her thick hair texture that has been smoothed out all over and curled at the ends. Ninaâ€™s locks look healthy, shiny and full of body. The flipped over part ensures that her hair doesnâ€™t look too heavy or pull her face down while adding volume at the crown.
Nina is a natural brunette and tends to stick close to her natural hair color. This particular shade is a chocolate brown at the roots with chestnut brown highlights throughout the lengths and ends. These tones go well with her amber brown eyes and warm complexion.

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