Alyssa Hair How To
Alyssa's base hair color is raven black with hints of lighter dark chocolate interspersed throughout the edges. Her below-the-shoulder length hair is medium to thick and appears to be has some natural bend to the texture.
Alyssa's hair is all one length with no obvious layers. She either wears her hair all pulled back off her hairline or she wears a side part.
When she adds a short side part Alyssa directs a section of hair directly adjacent to the hairline and directs her hair up and over the top of her head towards the opposite side. This gives her hair the look of looks of lush texture.
Wearing her hair longer is best for Alyssa since she has a heart shaped face with a slightly pointed chin. When she wears her hair long to her shoulders or shortly below, the raven black strands provide her gorgeous face with a beautiful frame which flatters her face, eyes and lips.
In the ABC Family Show, Nine Lives Of Chloe King, Alyssa tends to wear her hair long and either bone straight or just with a little bit of waves throughout the perimeter. Since her character has a lot of action sequences she tends to pull her hair back into a ponytail.
Follow the steps below to copy Alyssa's beautiful bone straight hairstyle with just a hint of bend throughout the edges. Although Alyssa doesn't wear a fringe presently, her hair could be worn that way. She also doesn't have a precision part, but one that is messy and off to one side.
Wash hair in lukewarm water with the shampoo product designed for your hair type, texture and condition. If you wish, utilize your unique washing program ranging from full shampoo to Diluted Shampoo (DS), low poo, Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash), no poo or water only.
Rinse out shampoo, apply a rinse out conditioner from the tops of the ears down to the ends and detangle with a wide tooth comb or fingers. Rinse well and then finish with a cool or cold water rinse. Towel blot (don't rub) to remove excess moisture.
Apply your designed styling cocktail into your hair working through with fingers or a wide tooth comb. Cocktail might consist or, but not be limited to, leave-in conditioner, defristant, styling mousse, volumizing spray for roots or similar.
Separate hair into 8-10 individual sections and work on each section at a time. Once the hair is completely dry, roll into a loose barrel curl around your fingers and pin against scalp to set and cool.
If you prefer more texture, use a long finger diffuser working through individual sections at a time. After each section is dry, roll into a spiral or ringlet curl and pin against your scalp to set.
Unpin all sections of dry hair. Use a flat iron on 1-2" sections and run it through just a few times to get perfectly straight strands. If you wish for more waves then use a curling iron instead.
Once hair is ironed to your desired texture, use fingers to gently fluff. Apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands.
