Faith Hill: Luscious Waves Steal This Style

Introduction

Faith Hill CMT Giants Honoring Reba McEntire 10/26/2006

Faith Hill has worn her hair a myriad of lengths, colors and styles over the past several years.

Since The Fall of 2004 the gorgeous songbird has worn her tresses around the tops of her shoulders or a bit longer with an emphasis on a variety of wave patterns.

Although Faith was still rocking a butter blonde hue in late 2004 she has gradually transformed to a family of lush chocolate browns with lighter copper highlights and richer brown lowlights. The combination of the lighter and darker colors has created a full lush hairstyle which is complimentary to Faith's skin and eye tones.

The majority of Faith's hairstyles since 2004 have been based upon either a center or side part with full sweeps of hair falling on either side of her mostly square shaped face.

On rare occasions Faith has worn a sideswept fringe appearing to prefer wearing her tresses brushed up and off her gorgeous face.

Faith's hair is composed of a series or long and graduated layers which helps to enhance curls and waves. The basic style is quite versatile. It can be worn either full with lots of texture or it can be blow dried and ironed flat. Depending on the event or Faith's mood she can crank the volume up or down accordingly.

She can also lighten up her darker her by having lighter coppery blonde highlights woven in a delicate web around her face and throughout her crown for instant shimmer.

Faith also happens to have stunning lush long tresses that she wears in a variety of office appropriate hairstyles that just happen to have lots of sexy sass.

Of course there is lots of wiggle room for Faith's character to go with sexier hair than you might normally find in a traditional office. The high fashion setting at Ugly Betty is not your normal office setting.

After studying abroad in Europe and South America, she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in European History. After moving to New York, she hosted a celebrity interview show on TBS entitled "Movie Junky".

Becki did guest starring stints on Charmed, Law & Order: SVU, Cold Case, American Dreams, The Men's Room and The Commuters. She stars with Jonathan Rhys Meyers in an upcoming film called August Rush.

Back To Faith's Long Luscious Waves & Curls

Although she almost always wears her hair down around her shoulders, she turns the texture up and down alternating between lots of waves and just a slight hint of bend.

Wearing her tresses brushed off her gorgeous face, Faith sometimes utilizes a side part to brush a section of hair up and to one side, creating instant volume.

The long layers also offers Faith the option to wear her high and low lighted tresses in a shimmering veil framing either side of her face or to wear a side-swept forehead covering fringe.

When she wears the style with the peek-a-boo side fringe she also has the option to tuck the opposite side behind one ear and pull the rest of her strands forward to frame her neck.

Whether worn with or without the side-swept strands, the style is perfect with her classic square shaped face and gorgeous features.

Coppery Blonde Highlights

If you look closely you will be able to see that Faith's chocolate brown tresses have been very carefully highlighted with ribbons of rich coppery blonde color placed strategically throughout her tresses to add fullness and depth.

The alternating light and dark hues placed against the soft chocolate base also helps to bring create a gorgeous shimmer.

Steal Faith's Lush Hair Style

Faith'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 with waves created with hot rollers or curling irons.

You may also opt to use a long finger diffuser to create loose waves and curls without a curling iron or hot rollers. This style is idea for hair that is medium in thickness.

Follow the steps below to recreate Faith's style:

Start with a precision layered strands that are cut to hang forward into curved points and frame the neck. Work with your hairdresser to achieve the correct style. Be willing to modify the style depending on your face shape, hair type, length and texture.

1. Start by washing your hair in lukewarm water with a product designed to add back moisture and to treat colored or highlighted hair with tender loving care.

2. Rinse hair well and then apply a moisturizing rinse-out conditioner focusing the products on the areas of the hair that are most dry or damaged. If your hair is fine or thin you may wish to skip this option.

For extra conditioning substitute the rinse-out conditioner with a deep conditioner that 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. It has been reported in the past that many celebrities are a big fan of Phytodefrisant for her naturally curly hair that tended to frizz.

6. For lots of fullness, lift and volume, 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. Separate strands into 1" to 2 1/2" sections and blow dry with a boar's bristle round 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.

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 separate into individual 2" strands. Use a 1 1/2" barrel curling iron, large hot rollers or 2" self adhesive style rollers.

Spritz each section with firm holding hairspray or styling product. Roll each individual strand around either the curling iron or curler of your choice.

Work your way around the entire head of hair either curling with an iron or rolling into curlers.

9. Let hair completely cool. If you are using a curling iron, after curling each section, use fingers to roll into a large barrel curl and pin into place to allow new curls to properly cool.

10. When the entire head is curled and the new curls are completely cool, carefully remove each curl one at a time.

11. Apply a strong holding hairspray to the newly released curls.

12. Use a boar's bristle brush or your fingers to break up the curls and waves.

13. Arrange in the desired style.

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.

14. Apply a shine serum, shine spray or hair cream to seal in moisture and add that shimmering shine similar to Faith's. Hairspray is optional.

Optionally this style can be easily pinned up for a tousled wavy updo style.

Summary

Faith Hill may be a little bit country but she rocks gorgeous hairstyles spiced up with stunning highlights and lowlights.

Whether she is wearing large loose butter blonde waves that cascade from a center part or tight ringlet chocolate brown curls interlaced with volume and waves, this songbird looks smashing with lots of body. Keep your eye on the gorgeous superstar whose tresses only get better with each passing year.
