Added: 05 Apr 2017
Face Shape Suitability: oval,oblong,heart,diamond,triangular
Description: Tight curls are dressed throughout these long blonde locks to give the over-all style subtle movement and bounce. This funky style is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair. Regular trims are needed to prevent split ends.

Our model looks lovely here in a sexy, striking, curly hairstyle. Having an oval face shape and high, rounded hairline, herface looks best in ‘dos with a grown out fringe and longer layers around the face. This simple layered cut creates a nice frame around her cheekbones and allows her hair’s natural texture to do its thing, adding body and bounce all over. The longer layers soften up her jaw line area and gives her tresses some movement. A center part in the front finishes this ‘do off nicely and works well with her high forehead, although a side-swept look would be ideal for her. By sweeping the hair to one side, our model adds excitement to her hairstyle and shows off her neck and shoulders for a sexy look.

Our model has a warm complexion with golden undertones and light eyes. This makes her suited to hair colors that have a yellow or gold base to them, like the light blonde seen here. This bright platinum shade is ideal for her complexion and it brings out the intensity of her eye color. It also completes her hair's wild look and feel and suits this 'do, which is ideal for parties and/or a sexy look.

Description: Willow Smith certainly knows how to whip her hair back and forth, not to mention rock some seriously cool hairdos. If you like her edgy hairstyles but don't want to copy her shaved sides, you can recreate a similar look, as our model demonstrates here. One side of this thick mane is braided to the head and pinned to the back, while the opposite side is blow-waved smooth from root to tip giving this look and contrasted finish. This hairstyle is great for those wanting be the center of attention at any event. Product is needed for hold and shine.

Here's how to get a Willow Smith inspired hairstyle in only a few minutes.

- To start, you will need hair that is long enough to braid. Girls with a short bob may be able to achieve this look with the help of hair pins... and some patience!
- For ladies with longer hair, begin by blow-drying your hair into a sleek, straight style.
- Create a deep side hair part. You can keep it straight or for extra cool factor, make it a diagonal part.
- Begin at the front and create three equal sections of hair. For a large braid, use large sections and for a small tight braid like our model, use tiny sections.
- Braid the hair towards the back of the head by pulling the hair sections underneath each other so that the braid sits on top, not underneath like a French braid.
- Once you have reached the nape of your neck, pin it or use a hair elastic to tie it into place.
- For an extra dose of Willow Smith style, add some bright pink and blue clip in hair extensions on the side where the hair is down.
