Teen Choice Awards
The beautiful Canadian recently appeared on the Teen Choice Awards with her long silky brunette hair expertly styled so that it fell slightly forward into seductive soft bend with beautiful movement and body.
A blunt fringe playfully framed her stunning eyes. The edges of her sleek style were slightly turned under.
If you look closely you will be able to see subtle highlights and lowlights to add fullness, movement and depth.
As her career evolves expect Carly to experiment with changing up her texture from sleek and straight to infused with undulating ripples of soft waves. She may also play with sleek classic styled ponytails, twists or chignons.
Steal Carly's Sleek Long Hair Style
Carly's hairstyle can be customized to work with just about any face shape, hair type or texture.
For naturally curly or wavy hair the strands must be either pre-straightened or blow dried straight. This style is idea for hair which is medium in thickness.
To add strategically placed volume, fullness and length you may wish to play with clip-in hair extensions.
Start with a precision hair cut which is all one length or with very slight layers throughout.
Step By Step Hair Style Instructions
Follow the steps below to re-create Carly's style:
1. Start by cleansing your detangled hair in lukewarm water with a product designed to add moisture and to treat colored or highlighted hair with tender loving care.
You may prefer to utilize an alternative cleansing method such as Diluted Shampoo (DS), Conditioner Only Wash, (COW), Water Only (WO) or Low Poo.
2. After cleansing, rinse hair well. Apply a moisturizing rinse-out conditioner focusing the product on the areas of the hair which are most dry or damaged. If your hair is fine or thin you may wish to skip this option.
3. For extra conditioning substitute the rinse-out conditioner with a deep conditioner which is allowed to soak down into the hair's shaft.
4. Finish with a cool/cold rinse to lock in moisture and add additional shine.
5. Towel blot to remove excess moisture. Apply a conditioning detangling spray or leave-in conditioner and detangle strands with a wide tooth comb working from the ends to the roots. Create either a center or side part, depending on how you wish to style your hair.
Note: If your hair is prone to frizzing apply a defrisant product or mix with your other styling products. Many stars are huge fans of Phytodefrisant.
6. For fullness, lift and volume throughout the crown, apply a volume enhancing product to the roots. Distribute a straightening balm to the rest of the strands distributing from below the roots to the ends.
7. Use a long tail comb to create desired part. Separate strands into 1" to 2 1/2" sections and blow dry with a boar's bristle round or paddle brush.
Blow dry the top sections of hair using fingers to lift individual top strands and direct the air flow from ends to roots. Use the brush to turn the ends under around the edges and slightly in towards the neck as you dry.
Note: If hair is naturally curly, do not use fingers to blow dry since this can add to frizz. Use a boar's bristle brush instead.
8. When hair is completely dry you may opt to touch up the strands with a straightening iron to achieve sleeker panels of hair.
You may prefer to use a curling iron (or hot rollers) to turn under the ends or add more volume and lift to the crown area.
9. Apply a shine serum, shine spray or hair cream to seal in moisture and add that shimmering shine similar to Carly's. Hairspray is optional.
Although it is not obvious, a few bobby pins or small combs in the same color as Carly's hair may be discreetly placed throughout the hair to encourage more volume.
