Penelope Cruz Medium Straight Light Brunette Hairstyle with Side Swept Bangs and Blonde Highlights

Added: 24 Jan 2022
Penelope Cruz has a gorgeous, bright hairstyle for the summer season. This style is easy to maintain and the color of this style helps to brighten up her look which we are living for! You are going to need to maintain your hair color so that your roots do not start to show through the highlights too much. You can elongate your face by cutting your hair short with a thick top. Those who want their face to look longer than it is will benefit from this style. Additionally, the volume can give you the impression that you have more hair than you actually do. If your hair is thinning, this method is perfect for you.

This hairstyle looks great with layers! By layering your hair you can create texture, depth, and shape, and preventing your tresses from looking flat and boring. By doing this, you can easily add volume and thickness to fine hair without sacrificing length. A layered hairstyle is typically perkier and feels more lively. It is important to know that bangs are a great styling tool that can enhance certain facial features- and hide or flatter others. They make the eyes seem bigger and more appealing. Choose fine wispy bangs that sit straight down or to the side of your eyes if you want to accentuate large eyes.

When it comes to your makeup application, you can add a bit of sparkle to your eyes as Penelope has done. A gorgeous brown smokey eye with a shimmery color on top will make your eyes pop more. You can then add some color to your lips and do not forget to highlight and contour your face and neck area to create the illusion of the perfect oval face shape.

step 1

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

step 2

Squeeze a small amount of straightening balm into your palms and then rub your hands together before smoothing the product evenly through damp hair.

step 3

When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

step 4

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.
