A combination of medium to long layers are cut all through the sides and back of this gorgeous mane to help enhance the bounce and movement of the beautiful waves through the mid-lengths to ends. The jagged cut bangs are swept to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all hairstyle magnificently.

Leeza Gibbons looks youthful and glowing here with a softly curled blonde hairstyle. Her layered bob has been curled and styled with extra volume at the roots and throughout the rest of the hair. This is ideal for her face shape, which is an oblong, as it benefits from added fullness around the face. The jagged fringe is also a good option for Leeza as oblong face shapes usually have high foreheads to camouflage. This ‘do balances out her proportions and sculpts her face nicely.

Leeza’s color is also a winner here. The golden blonde base color and wheat blonde highlights work well with her skin tone, which has warm undertones to it. Her hair color also brings out her amber eyes. This shade will suit ladies with fair to medium skin tones that have blue or green eyes the best.

Leeza Gibbons is an American talk show host, news anchor, producer and actress who shot to fame as the host of Entertainment Tonight. She wrote a book on how to care for family members with Alzheimer’s Disease, and has her own charity—the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse


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


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


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


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 Bangs Forward to the Right


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.

6. Piece the Ends Using Wax


Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

7. Apply Hairspray


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.
