Description

The top of this formal style is smoothed down with one side pinned behind the ear, leaving the opposite side to fall over the shoulder showing off the loose waves added for movement and shape. This sexy hairdo is easy to re-create with the right tools and will turn heads at any occasion. Product is needed to add gloss and regular trims will help prevent split ends.

Anna Kendrick looks dazzling here in long wavy brunette locks. This is a simple and elegant that hairstyle that can work just as well during the daytime as it does for more formal evening occasions. Anna is often seen wearing her hair up, but for occasions where she wants a more glamorous sexy look, leaving her thick locks down is ideal. Anna has an oval face shape, which suits this hairstyle well.

The color is beautiful here too, and works well with Anna’s cool complexion. Her base color is a dark chocolate brown, while the mid-lengths and ends have been subtly highlighted with caramel brown tones. This color combination brings a warm glow to Anna’s complexion and highlights her blue eye color. This hair color isn’t just limited to fair skin and light eyes though; it will suit darker complexions and eye colors too.

Anna Kendrick is an American actress and singer. She shot to fame with her performance in Up in the Air, and has also starred in prominent Broadway musicals.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

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. Part to the Right

Partright

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Use a Large Radial Brush

Brushlarge

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.

4. 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.

5. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Sidesunder

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.

6. Use a Large Curling Iron

Curlingironlarge

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. Pin the Side Back

Sidepinback

Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.

9. 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.

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.
