These locks are left out to fall over the shoulders showing off the soft waves dressed through the mid-lengths to ends for shape and softness. This polished look is easy to re-create with the right tools and needs product for shine and hold. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help prevent split ends.
Gigi Hadid is looking beautiful here in a long layered hairstyle with a gorgeous color. Gigi has an oval face and can pull off most styles with ease. Here she has created soft beachy waves in her hair for a modern yet polished look. This cut makes the most of her features and hair type, which has added volume and body thanks to the waves throughout. She keeps her hair over the ears and cheeks and maintains minimal volume through the temples to take the emphasis off of her wide cheekbones. For a soft and casual finish, she has combed through her locks rather than kept her curls tight and in tact for a soft, silky look and feel.
Gigi has naturally dark mousy blonde hair, and looks best in shades of light and vibrant blonde tones as well and warm brown and gold tones. Here she is wearing a cinnamon brown shade that compliments her warm, fair skin tone and her light blue eyes. Her root area is left slightly darker while the ends are highlighted for a beachy finish.

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.
5. Use a Large Curling Iron
A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.
6. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron
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.
Comb your hair into the desired direction that you require for styling.
8. Style Sides Out Using Wax
To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. Be careful not to overdo that wax or your result will be a flat and limp style.
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.
