Description

Loose waves are added to the sides and back of this mane to give the over-all style plenty of shape and bounce . This hairstyle is easy to re-create at home and is perfect for those with fine to medium hair. Product is needed to keep this look in place all day or night and needs regular trims to prevent split ends.

Chyler Leigh knows how to style her short bob up for a night out on the town! By adding beach waves to her bob she instantly pumps up the volume and glam factor of this ‘do. She has an oval face shape with great bone structure and can easily pull off a short, face-framing bob with a center part. This hairstyle shows off her strong cheekbones and large eyes. Ladies who have a high forehead and want to copy this look should opt for a side part instead.

Chyler’s color looks fantastic here as well. She has a warm, freckled complexion and suits tones in the red spectrum. Here, so goes for a mix of red-based shades. Her roots are a deep rich mahogany color that is highlighted with copper tones throughout. The tips have been lightened to a copper blonde for a beautiful subtle ombre effect.

Chyler Leigh is an American actress who has starred in Not Another Teen Movie and the medical drama Grey's Anatomy.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

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. Part the Middle

Partmiddle

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

Brushmedium

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

Backunder

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 Left Side Back

Sidebackshortleft

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.

6. Blow-dry Right Side Back

Sidebackshortright

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a backward direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.

7. Use a Medium Curling Iron

A medium curling iron is used to create medium sized curls.

8. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Midsidecurlingiron

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

9. Softly Flick Sides Using Wax

Sidesflickssoft

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, and then starting about halfway down the hair shaft, pinch and drag the hair in a downward motion before flicking the ends out. Remember not to apply too much wax as it will weigh your hair down.

10. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
