This beautiful 'do is parted on the side and slicked behind one ear, leaving the opposite side out showing off the loose waves added to give the over-all style a soft look and feel. This gorgeous 'do is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and perfect for any day or night occasion.

Portia De Rossi is looking sophisticated and sexy here in a short wavy hairstyle. This 'do only takes minutes to style and is a good choice for women with short hair who want to try something different. By simply adding waves and sweeping the hair to one side, Portia's 'do is transformed from her everyday look into something more formal and sophisticated. Portia has an oval face shape with a high forehead, so this side-swept look is just right for her.

Portia has a cool skin tone with pink undertones, so this buttery blonde shade is a bit on the brassy side for her. Icy ash blonde highlights would make this shade more flattering to her complexion, so keep this in mind if you have a similar skin tone. Overall, Portia can pull off this haircut and color flawlessly.

Portia De Rossi is an Australian actress, model and philanthropist. She is most famous for her role on the television series Ally McBeal, in addition to being the partner of Ellen Degeneres.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

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 Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Placeholder articles

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

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

Placeholder articles

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.

4. Wax Side Behind Ear

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.

5. 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.

6. 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.
