Alison Brie Medium Straight     Hairstyle  - Visual Story


This glossy brunette mane is blow-waved to smooth down the top and sides while adding subtle movement to the mid-lengths to ends. The middle part through the top makes this a fabulous style to complement a round face for any occasion. This formal style is easy to re-create with the right tools and needs regular trims every 4-6 weeks to prevent split ends.

Alison’s smooth and sophisticated ‘do gives her a classy and refined look here. This is a simple hairstyle that brings her facial features and glossy hair color to center stage. If you are looking for a simple hairstyles that had a touch of Sixties retro vibe to it, then this hairstyle may be for you! To get this look, a killer blow dry is first need to create smooth and silky locks. Then, slight waves at the ends can be created using a round brush whilst blow-drying or with a large barreled curling iron after the hair has been fully dried. Finish it off with a strong hold hairspray for best results. This hairstyle looks fabulous on Alison’s oval face shape, especially with a center part. Ladies with a wide or angular face shape can try a side part instead.

Alison’s color is an all-over neutral chestnut brown base with a few subtle highlights throughout the ends. This shade will work equally as well on cool and warm complexions. As you can see here, this silky brunette hair color brings out Alison’s blue eyes nicely, but would look just as good on dark eyes too.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

step 1

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. Part the Middle

step 2

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 Medium Radial Brush

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.

4. Blow-dry the Back Under

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.

5. Blow-dry the Sides Under

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.

6. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 6

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.

7. Apply Hairspray

step 7

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.
