Long Hair Style - Sandra Bullock How To
Sandra Bullock, 47, turned up the glam factor by appearing at Thursday night's New York premiere of "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" with a stunning Alexander McQueen black satin pants suit with a plunging jacket.
This is her first movie since "The Blind Side", her Oscar, her divorce from her cheating husband and her move to New Orleans with her 2-year-old son.
Her raven hued hair which is naturally curly was styled bone straight. It flowed from a straight center part. The ends which nestled into her cleavage shimmered with a hint of lighter Ombre milk chocolate ends.
Her only accessories besides her stunning shoes were nails polished to dark vampy perfection.
How To Copy Sandra's Bone Straight Long Hair Style
Listed below are the steps for creating a perfect bone straight long hair blow out for any type or texture of hair:
1. Cleanse detangled hair in lukewarm water. If your hair is chemically treated, naturally dry or textured, you may wish to either utilize a product designed for your hair type and texture. Or you may wish to use a Diluted Shampoo (DS), Low Poo, Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash) or No Poo product.2. Rinse completely after applying shampoo or cleansing formula.
3. Apply a rinse out conditioner from the ears down to the ends. Detangle hair in horizontal sections with fingers or a wide tooth, hair friendly comb. Work slowly from the ends up to the roots.
4. When hair is completely detangled, rinse out conditioner and finish with a cool or cold water rinse.5. Towel blot hair to remove excess moisture but allowing hair to retain some level of dampness.
6. Apply a leave-in styling cocktail including, but not limited to, a leave-in conditioner, defrisant, straightening balm and a mousse or styling cream.7. Bend over at the waist and flip your hair over your head.
8. Power dry the underside of your hair with your fingers until it's 70 percent dry. Don't worry about using a brush at this point.9. Bend back up and flip all of your hair back up and over.
10. Use a 100% boar bristle style paddle or flat style brush. Separate hair into 2" horizontal sections. Use the brush to pull the hair the opposite direction from its natural growth pattern. Direct the air flow from the blow dryer down the hair shaft from the roots to the ends. Dry completely.11. Optionally you may wish to spritz volumizer onto the roots to add fullness and volume. After you've spritzed in the volumizer, take a 100% boar bristle round brush. Bend the hair at the roots. Direct the roots the opposite direction from how they grow, then pull the brush through to the ends. Avoid turning the brush since it rubs your hair in the wrong direction and create frizz.
Note: For extra volume, always dry your roots first. Lift your hair at a 60 degree angle, place your brush against the scalp and lay your hair over it. Point your blow-dryer at the roots and dry. Next, dry the top of your hair with the dryer pointing down wards.
Remember to work to get a bend in the roots right at the top for extra volume, lift and movement. Slide the brush down the hair shaft, with the dryer following. The dryer nozzle should always be pointed down from the roots to the ends which creates a little bend and a tiny flip.
12. When your hair is 100% dry, separate hair into 2" vertical sections and run a flat iron from right below the roots to the ends. Work around the entire head from side to side until hair is bone straight and to your desired style.
13. Rub a little styling or finishing cream into the palms of your hands and your fingers. Rake fingers through your newly ironed strands focusing the cream close to the ends.
This will add a little texture and eliminate frizz of puffiness. Remember that a little bit goes a long way. Avoid adding too much cream which may make hair limp and greasy.14. Optionally you may prefer to apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands and massage well before swiping over the top of your strands. This will block out frizz and add shine.
