Milla Jovovich Short Straight Layered Brunette Bob Haircut with Side Swept Bangs and Dark Blonde Highlights

Added: 03 Nov 2011

Try an ultra-modern retro wave inspired by Milla Jovovich. Her model looks help her pull off any style with ease (remember the neon orange dreadlocks in The Fifth Element?) but Milla Jovovich's latest hairstyle and hair color couldn't suit her better. While some celebs take the vintage look and go overboard with it, Milla adds just enough waves to look retro while the color and cut remain ultra-modern.

Her base brunette color is highlighted with a warm golden brown shade that adds dimension and hair shine. Her hair is cut into a classic bob hairstyle with added layering around the face and ends to give it a sleek silhouette.

To get this wavy retro style reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties, Milla has used medium-sized hair rollers on the ends to curl the hair under, while the side has been set with a finger wave and then brushed out. Finger waves can be tricky to do and take a lot of practice, so this is not a look to try out as you are rushing out the door!

It is however, a great look to copy when you have a formal or special event like a wedding - especially if you are wearing a vintage-inspired gown or jewelry. Mimic Milla's makeup and stick to jewel tone eye shadow and lips for a truly decadent look.

This classic hairstyle is blow-waved into this fabulous style to frame the sides of the face for a formal and fancy look and feel. This look will be great for any special occasion and is easy to re-create with the right tools and products.

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.

step 2

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.

step 3

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.

step 4

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.

step 5

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.

step 6

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush underneath the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in a forward and downward direction with your blow-dryer above. Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly above.

step 7

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. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.

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.
