Description

Soft classic waves are dressed all through the sides and back of these dark tresses giving the over-all look style and movement. The long bangs are swept across to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all hairdo brilliantly. This is a fantastic look for any occasion and needs product to pinch through the ends.

Viola Davis looks youthful and radiant here in a wavy chin length bob. Not only is this ‘do right on trend for this season but it is also an ideal cut for Viola’s oblong face shape. The side swept fringe works to camouflage her high forehead, and the graduated cut minimizes the appearance of a square jawline. The soft waves give her a cool, casual beachy finish.

Viola’s color is working nicely for her here as well. Her rich black-brown shade looks fabulous with her warm, dark complexion and dark brown eyes. Her hair color has a lot of warmth to it which gives her complexion a nice glow. Ladies who also have dark eyes and a medium to dark skin tone will look good in this shade as well.

Viola Davis is an American actress who has won numerous awards for her work, including a Tony and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

Placeholder articles

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. Use Large Hot Rollers

Placeholder articles

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

3. Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back

Placeholder articles

Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

4. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side

Placeholder articles

Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

5. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Placeholder articles

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

Placeholder articles

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

7. 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.
