Description

Beautiful waves are dressed through the sides and back to give this style body and volume making it a perfect hairdo to frame a long face. This fancy hairstyle is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair.

Rita Wilson looks glam in this hairstyle that is big on volume and body. The center part and cascading corkscrew waves compliment Rita’s oval face shape nicely and bring attention to her eye and cheekbone area. Rather than go for loose, limp beachy waves, Rita has pumped up the volume at the crown and throughout the mid-lengths and ends. This can be achieved by applying a good mousse to the towel-dried hair and then blow-drying the hair in an upwards fashion at the roots. The waves have been fanned out a it for extra body throughput and then sprayed into place for hold.

Rita’s color looks gorgeous here as well, with a dark chocolate brown shade at the roots and alternating caramel brown and blonde streaks on the mid-lengths and ends. This coloring technique gives her a subtle ombre finish with a sun-kissed feel. This hair color will suit complexions with warm or golden undertones the best.

Rita Wilson is an American actress, singer, and producer who just happens to be married to Tom Hanks as well!

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. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Brushmedium

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. 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

Backunder

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 Left Side Back

Sidebackshortleft

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

5. Blow-dry Right Side Back

Sidebackshortright

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

6. Use a Large Curling Iron

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

7. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Midsidecurlingiron

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

8. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Productsendswavy

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

9. 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.

10. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
