Hair Snippets: Maggie Lawson's PSYCH Hair Snippets: Long Blonde Hairstyles


Maggie Lawson

The lovely Maggie Lawson is part of the cast of USA's PSYCH which returns in the Summer of 2011 for Season 6. She plays sassy policewoman Juliet O'Hara and is a fan favorite.

The USA show is a quick-witted crime solving drama starring James Roday (Shawn Spencer) and Dulé Hill (Gus) with regular appearances by Corbin Bernsen as Shawn's disapproving dad.

Although Maggie is part of the crime fighting team which includes Timothy Omundson and Kirsten Nelson, her gorgeous long blonde hair often grabs the spotlight.

Hair Style:

Maggie's lush off-the-hairline (off-center parted) hairstyle is super flattering to her face working in harmony with her predominately square face shape, fair skin tone, sparkling eyes and lush lips.

Both on-screen and off Maggie wears her beautifully highlighted and low lighted tresses several inches below her shoulders. While fighting crime on PSYCH she often sweeps her tresses up into a variety of chic twists, half ponies and buns.

Maggie also utilizes a variety of hair accessories from headbands, hair clips and an array of plain and decorative bobby pins to pull the front of her hair up and off her face. Afterall, when you're fighting crime you have to be ready for anything.

You can easily achieve her classy look which combines smoothly blown out hair with lush volume built throughout the top and crown. Hot irons are utilized along the perimeter to give Maggie's ends a slight curve and bend.

For hair which is naturally straight, hot rollers or a wet set with adhesive rollers dried under a hood unit will create more defined texture along the edges.

Hair Secrets:

The biggest secret to Maggie's well groomed silky locks are regular deep conditioning treatments combined with regular trims to keep ends in tip top shape.

Quick Hairstyling Tips:

Maggie's hair style is ideal for anyone with shoulder length or longer tresses which are medium in thickness with some natural waves or bend.

Maggie's hairstyle is best achieved on freshly cleansed hair properly prepped with styling products to give the hair appropriate workability.

Follow the styling tips below:

1. Cleanse hair with products designed specifically for your hair's type, texture, condition and/or special needs such as colored hair or to add volume. Add rinse-out conditioner and final cold water rinse.

2. Towel blot. Rake leave-in conditioning and appropriate styling cocktail through strands with wide tooth comb and/or fingers. Work styling cocktail through strands starting at the hairline and working down through the ends. Apply volume enhancing spray to roots for lots of lift.

Note: If your hair is prone to frizzing apply a defrisant product or mix with your other styling products. Many celebrities are big fans of Phytodefrisant.

3. Dry with a large boar bristle round brush and blow dryer with concentrator attachment. If you prefer to create tousled separation rather than sleek volume use a long finger diffuser instead.

4. Add lots of volume by flipping head upside down while drying. Blow dry until tresses are dry throughout the base, but still damp on the ends.

Flip head back to finish ends. Use a 2-inch round boar bristle brush. Turn hair slightly under at the ends. Blow hair back at temples. Direct strands away from the face briefly to create additional lift and shape.

4. Finish hair styling process with light holding spray. Swipe with light shine serum to capture random fly-a-ways and add bouncy shimmer.

The key to the sexy glamour of Maggie's hair is lush root volume, shimmering shine and loose waves throughout the edges. Avoid too much product or styling to keep hair soft.

Hairstyling Notes & Options

To add more volume after hair is completely dry separate hair into 2-inch sections. Spray base of hair with volumizing and/or finishing spray. Roll section towards back of head on large self adhesive rollers. Roll entire head in 2-inch sections down the middle of the head all the way to the nape of the neck.

Roll side hair downwards so strands will be curled under. Allow rollers to set for a minimum of 30-45 minutes.

Remove rollers using fingers to shake the hair free. Avoid disturbing new texture with comb or brush. Slightly back comb throughout crown and adjacent to hairline to add more volume. Finish with mist of light finishing spray.
