Description

This medium length 'do is dressed in waves all through the back and sides to give the over-all hairstyle plenty of bounce and movement. The shape of this 'do is perfect to complement an oval face and great for formal occasions. Product is needed to tame fly-away hair and regular trims will help maintain a healthy look and feel.

Jessica Alba looks fantastic here in a fancy formal ‘do that is ideal for an evening affair. This hairstyle channels an old Hollywood glamorous vibe with large corkscrew curls brushed out silky smooth to frame the face and a deep side part. Jessica’s oval face shape is ideal for this look as the flipped over fringe and cascading curls frame her face shape and balance out her proportions. This ‘do is also perfect for her hair type, which is medium-thick and has natural wave in it. A large curling iron can be used to create this look and it will work best on women with medium to thick hair that is shoulder length or shorter.

Jessica Alba has a warm, tanned complexion and medium brown eyes. She suits her natural dark brunette hair color well but also looks great in lighter caramel brown and dark golden blonde tones. Here, her highlighted tresses come to life and look extra glossy thanks to the large curls and silky smooth finish.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Smoothing Shine

Smoothingshine

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. Smoothing shine will work best on any hair type and style, but is especially good for smoothing down frizzy hair.

2. Part to the Left

Partleft

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

3. Use a Large Radial Brush

Brushlarge

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.

4. Blow-dry the Crown

Crown

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.

5. Blow-dry Bangs to the Left

Bangsbackleft

To blow-dry your bangs you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the bangs are completely dry.

6. Use Large Hot Rollers

Largehotroller

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

7. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side

Verticalsideroller

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.

8. Apply Hot Rollers Vertically in the Back

Horizontalbackroller

Take a section of hair from the nape 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 down the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

9. Apply Hot Rollers on Top

Topbackroller

Take a section of hair from the front of your head 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 the top of your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Continue this step until a row of hot rollers has been applied along the very top of your head. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

10. Apply Hot Rollers to Bangs

Toprollerforward

Take your front bang section and roll it up into your hot roller in a forward direction so that the hair curls under. Continue applying hot rollers along the top of your head in the opposite direction, going backwards. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

11. 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.
