Barbara Niven Medium Straight    Golden Blonde   Hairstyle with Side Swept Bangs - Visual Story

Description

These glossy tresses are blow-waved perfectly to smooth down the top while flicking out the ends for shape and texture. The roots are teased to achieve lift and body at the roots while the bangs are swept across the forehead to soften the face. This is a great hairstyle for any occasion and needs regular trims to prevent split ends.

Barbara Niven goes for a classic, sophisticated look here with a polished Sixties-inspired ‘do. This shoulder length hairstyle features flipped out ends, a bouffant at the crown and side swept bangs that all flatter Barbara’s oval face shape nicely. This sleek hairstyle also works well with her straight, thick hair texture that benefits from added softness and bounce. Barbara’s face takes center stage here thanks to the smooth sculpting effect of this ‘do.

Barbara has a tanned, peachy complexion and blue eyes. This makes her suited to golden brown and blonde tones the best. Here, she is sporting a light golden blonde shade that lightens up her complexion and intensifies her blue eye color. Barbara keeps the roots a darker shade of blonde for a more natural look, while the lengths and ends are subtly highlighted for a multidimensional finish.

Barbara Niven is an American actress and producer, best known for her performances in Lifetime movies.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

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.


2. Use a Large Radial Brush

step 2

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.


3. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

step 3

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.


4. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

step 4

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.


5. Blow-dry the Crown

step 5

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.


6. Blow-dry Hair Under to the Left

step 6

Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the left. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.


7. Tease Hair

step 7

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.


8. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 8

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.


9. Apply Hairspray

step 9

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.
