Long And Wavy Copper Red Hairstyle With Light Blonde Highlights

Added: 03 Jan 2013
Add some fun to your look with this long and wavy copper-red hairstyle. This beautiful style will take you from day to evening in no time, with side-swept bangs and light blonde highlights that will enhance your gorgeous hair color. This low-maintenance haircut makes this style ideal for all busy lifestyles!

Our alluring model is showing off her long hairstyle with her gray-colored eyes that are paired with sharp facial features, making her look even more stunning than usual. We love how she highlights her hair with light blonde, making her stand out in a crowd. It is a timeless style for all face shapes. For the hair styling, these highlighted copper locks are blow-waved from root to tip, adding movement and shape to the mid-lengths to ends for shape and style. The long bangs are smoothed over to the side to complement the face and complete the overall 'do brilliantly. The side-swept bangs are added to frame her eyes and add more height and fullness. This color would be flattering on many skin tones, and it could be lined up to match your natural lip color or enhancer. You can take up the sides higher to make the layers look thicker if you have thin hair. We recommend leaving them down the full length for women with medium or thick hair.

This copper red hairstyle is a bold and modern look that you can maintain into your desired shape with regular trimming. Achieve this style with the help of professional hair stylist and blow dryer, or if you have time, use the blow dryer yourself to get that extra volume. In the end, you can spray a small amount of hairspray through the sides for extra hold and body.

step 1

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.

step 2

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

step 3

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.

step 4

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.

step 5

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.

step 6

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

step 7

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

step 8

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.

step 9

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.

step 10

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.
