Description

This highlighted mane is dressed in waves all through the back and sides to achieve a classic look and feel. The body and volume makes this formal style perfect to complement a long face for any occasion. Product is needed for hold and shine.

Laverne Cox goes all out glamorous here with this vintage inspired curly ‘do. Laverne has large, expressive facial features and an oval face shape, making a bob ideal for her. She also has a very low forehead which means she is better suited to a grown out fringe. This cut ticks all of those boxes and provides Laverne with a gorgeous face-framing ‘do that brings out all of her best features. To style it up, large waves were added to her side-parted locks to create an old Hollywood finish. This is a great way to jazz up a plain bob and add volume to the locks.

Laverne loves to experiment with her color and try out dramatic shades. Here, she goes for a light golden blonde tone that looks fabulous with her warm, golden-based skin tone and dark eyes. Multidimensional highlights and lowlights keep her blonde looking natural and reduce brassiness.

Laverne Cox is an American actress, reality television star, television producer, and LGBT advocate.

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. Use Large Hot Rollers

Largehotroller

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

Backdownroller

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

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.

5. 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.

6. 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.
