Description

Gorgeous large waves are dressed all through the mid-lengths to ends of these tresses giving this style plenty of bounce and movement. This 'do is easy to re-create with the right tools and needs product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help prevent split ends and keep the hair looking thick and healthy.

Laura Marano looks lovely here in long wavy locks that show off her best assets. This ‘do frames her triangular face shape nicely and makes the most of her naturally thick hair texture. Laura has a high “widows peak” hairline which makes her best suited to a grown-out fringe, as seen here. The center part and voluminous waves help to add width at the top her face to balance out the triangular shape. Layers throughout give this hairstyle movement, and also helps to reduce any heavy or bulky weight in the hair.

Laura has a cool, fair complexion with pink undertones and dark brown eyes. This makes her best suited to hair colors on the cool spectrum like the dark espresso brown she is sporting here. To warm up her complexion and give her tresses a sun-kissed look, she has added subtle caramel highlights throughout the lengths and ends. This gives her hair extra shine and a soft finish.

Laura Marano is an American actress and singer who stars in the Disney Channel series Austin & Ally as Ally Dawson.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

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 the Middle

Placeholder articles

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.

3. Use a Large Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

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 Straight Back

Placeholder articles

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.

5. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

Placeholder articles

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.

6. Blow-dry the Crown

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

7. Use a Large Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

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

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

Placeholder articles

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.

9. Use a Curling Iron on the Front and Sides

Placeholder articles

Starting at the front, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.

10. Use a Curling Iron to Curl the Back

Placeholder articles

Starting from the back, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed.

11. Style Sides Out Using Wax

Placeholder articles

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.

12. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

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.
