Drew Barrymore Updo and Hair Color

Hair

Need a Hair style for a round face shape? Try the latest Drew Barrymore up do

Drew Barrymore is not shy about changing hair styles and hair color. She is a true chameleon in the celebrity world of hair. She changes her color and hair style more often than most and because of this, will never become dated or boring to watch.

“finger dry upside down, directing heat at the roots to give lift”

This color and up do is the best hair style I’ve seen on her to date! The color is a rich warm brown with caramel high lights that compliments her light complexion and gives her a healthy looking glow. I personally think the blonde colors of past, washed her out.

This up do hair style is a casual but elegant look. It’s easy and compliments her classic round face shape by elongating the look of her face using height at the crown.

This is a good style for all face shapes with the exception of an elongated oval or a longer oblong face shape. This style will work best with shoulder length or longer hair that is straight or wavy.

Start by using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner like, Amplify shampoo and conditioner by Matrix . Keep the water temperature tepid and do a cool final rinse for maximum shine results. Towel dry and use a root lifter such as, Tigi Catwalk root lifter. If possible let your hair air dry till about 80% dry, finger dry upside down, directing heat at the roots to give lift. Spray your hair with a thermal active spray like, CHI Shine thermal active spray . Using a boar bristle brush, paddle brush, or vent brush, blow dry (still upside down) the hair smooth by creating tension and following the brush with the hair dryer down the hair shaft.

The key to achieving this look;

  • Create height at the crown. Backcomb a skull cap area from about two inches back from your hairline to two inches over the crown of the head.

  • Lightly spray with a finishing spray like, Sebastian finishing spray and smooth over the top.

  • Part far off-center and comb over, pulling both sides to meet high in the back of the head and still letting sides cover some ear.

  • A French twist may work best for longer hair on the nape area, and then pull sides around and high to give more height at the crown.

  • Secure with bobby pins, hair pins, hair barrette’s or hair accessories.

  • Let some wispy edges fall out. You can use a soft touch of a curling iron on them if needed.

  • Spray lightly again with a finishing spray.
