Description

The back and sides of this hairstyle is tapered into the head, while jagged cut layers are added through the top and styled over to the side. The layered bangs are also styled to the side to soften up her face and completes the over-all 'do brilliantly. Product is needed to keep this hairstyle is in place.

Carolyn Hennesy looks chic and stylish here in a layered short hairstyle. She suits short hair well, due to her oval face shape and delicate facial features. She also looks best in styles with bangs thanks to her low, straight hairline. The tapered sides and back in this cut show off her face nicely, while the longer layers at the front give her some forehead coverage and bring the focus up to her eyes. This ‘do works well with her hair type that looks best in cuts that are layered with precision.

As for her color, Carolyn has a fair, warm complexion and hazel eyes. She sticks close to her natural color here with this deep red base shade that has subtle highlights throughout. These highlights warm up her hair color and give her complexion a sun-kissed glow.

Carolyn Hennesy is an Emmy-nominated American actress, author, wildlife conservationist and animal welfarist.

Styling Steps

1. 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.

2. Use a Small Radial Brush

Brushsmall

A small radial brush is used on shorter hair types to add more body or in longer hair types to create curl. 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

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.

4. Blow-dry the Sides Under

Sidesunder

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

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.

6. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Bangsforwardrightbdry

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

7. Pinch Hair for Texture Using Gel

Toppinching

Apply gel to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. For a messier look, pinch the clumps in different directions.

8. Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax

Bangsforwardright

Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.
