To get her look:
Use a conditioning spray on your damp hair to shield from heat damage. This also helps to seal the cuticle which adds shine.
Fine-haired people should use a volumizing spray instead. Blow-dry the hair with a large round brush to create lift at the crown
and a smooth finish on top. Hold the brush at an angle up and away from the face as you blow-dry the hair to give the face an open
and lifted look.
Reinforce the natural wave of the hair using a large-barrel curling iron and wrapping thick (2-inch or so) sections spiraling back
away from the face at a downward angle. Once the curls are formed, slide the barrel out of the curl and allow the curl to cool
completely. Remember that until the curl cools fully, it is not set and can be pulled out.
Smooth the top sections of the hair with a paddle brush misted with hairspray, and use a wide-tooth comb to separate and lift the
curls on the sides in the direction they were created. As long as the curls have cooled properly, you’ll simply create separation
and definition in the style.
Angelina Jolie’s Bombshell Blow-Out
In what is best described as a long-circle cut, Jolie’s hair is subtly layered in a below-the-shoulder length. “The cut creates
cascading layers and reduces some of the weight of the hair so that it flows better,” according to her sometime-stylist, David
Babaii. “The key is not to frame the face with too many choppy layers.
To get her look:
If your hair is as silky as Angelina’s use a texturing spray or wave spray to give it an instant lift on damp hair before blow-drying.
Use a medium round brush and roll sections away from the face starting on top of the head.
Wrap one or two inch sections of hair around a 1.5-inch barrel curling iron, hot-roller style, wrapping the hair away from the face.
Hold the iron vertically on the sides. Once the sections are heated, slide the iron out and clip the curls close to the scalp.
You can use a firm-bristle toothbrush with a misting of hairspray to ruff the base of each curled section to create lift and fullness
at the scalp. Confine the ruffing to one inch segments at the scalp area. Ruffing is like back-combing, only performed with a brush.
Hold the segment of hair loosely and direct the brush toward the scalp along the hair shaft.
Use a boar bristle paddle brush to gently glide through the hair. Lightly graze the top layers so as to not lose the lift there; then
shake out the length using your fingers. You can finish the ends using the bristle brush to create a soft, sumptuous look.
Jessica Simpson’s Tousled Waves
Jessica’s stylist, Ken Paves, describes her hair as “lightly layered with shorter pieces in the front curving around the face”. The
goal was creating a look that was touchable and never appeared fussy. Mr. Paves believes this lightly-layered look is “versatile and
universally flattering on any woman”. However, he warns again over-layering the sides as it could lead to the formation of a long shag.
