Alexandra Billings Short Straight     Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

Uniform layers are cut all through this 'do to achieve this full bodied hairdo best suited for those with naturally straight hair. Teasing at the roots is needed for height and control, and strong hold product is needed to keep it in place.

Alexandra Billings looks chic here in a voluminous short hairstyle. This ‘do is an excellent choice for her square face shape for many reasons. The height at the crown area adds more length to her face and balances out any boxiness, while the curls give her ‘do a soft finish. Alexandra’s tapered cut gives her style a sculpted finish that hugs her jaw and neckline nicely. Having a high, broad forehead with a straight hairline, Alexandra suits bangs well. Here, she wears them up off her face for a youthful, fresh look.

As for her color, Alexandra suits brunette shades the best, thanks to her dark eyes and tanned complexion. Here, she sticks to dark chocolate brown roots but has added warm caramel tones throughout the lengths and ends for a sun-kissed finish.

Alexandra Billings is an American actress, teacher, singer, and the first openly trans woman to have played a transgender character on television.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

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 Medium Radial Brush

step 2

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.


3. Blow-dry the Back Under

step 3

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.


4. Blow-dry the Sides Under

step 4

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.


5. Blow-dry the Crown

step 5

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.


6. Blow-dry the Top Section Back

step 6

To blow-dry the top section back you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure that 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 lifting your hair up and 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 top section is completely dry.


7. Tease Hair

step 7

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.


8. Apply Hairspray

step 8

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.
