Added: 19 Sep 2017
Face Shape Suitability: round,oval,oblong,square,heart,diamond,triangular
Description: This light blonde hair is pulled back to the nape of the neck, then twisted and pinned at the back to create this sleek curled 'do that will turn heads at any occasion. This stunning hairstyle is possible to create at home and needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Our model goes for an elegant updo here with her hair pinned at the back and sleek, side-swept curled bangs at the side. Our model's hair is medium to long length which suits her triangular-shaped face nicely. Here she draws attention away from her wide forehead by wearing a longer, side swept curled fringe that sculpts to the side of the face and joins the rest of the hairdo at the nape of the neck. The deep side part that is flipped over gives her hair a lift at the crown, while the rest of her hair is pinned at the side in a stylish twist. Her hair's naturally straight texture has been curled with hot rollers, making it easier to manipulate into this style.

Our model has blue eyes and a tanned, peachy skin tone which makes her suited to soft beige blonde tones and icy platinum shades the best. Here, she goes for a multidimensional golden blonde base with subtle icy blonde highlights throughout. This gives her hair a natural looking light blonde shade which flatters her golden complexion and showcases her intense brown eyes. The subtle copper tones throughout the bottom layers give her hair a gorgeous base, and brings out the golden flecks in her eyes and the warmth in her skin tone.

Face Shape Suitability: oval,oblong,heart,diamond,triangular
Description: One side of this short 'do is braided back behind the ear, while the opposite side is left out to soften the face and complete the over-all look magnificently. This hairstyle is perfect to complement a long face for any occasion and needs a little product to pinch through the ends for hold and definition.

Our model styles her short, curly hair up here with some corkscrew curls and a side braid—the perfect ‘do for a night out on the town. Having a short bob can limit one’s styling options but this is a great way to change up your look for a special event. Our model has French braided one side back around the ear and to the nape while the rest of the hair has large bouncy curls throughout. She has a triangular shaped face so a short bob really shows off her high cheekbones nicely, and works well with her defined chin area. The low, side-sweeping bangs are ideal for the triangle face shape's typical broad forehead.

Our model's color here is a light coffee brown tone with subtle highlights throughout. She has subtle blonde and pink undertones in her complexion so the lighter coppery-pink highlights through the ends are ideal for her. This is a great way to add some funky color to brunette hair while keeping damage to a minimum. The berry pink lips add a final touch to this chic and trendy look.
