Hi, everyone. I’m hairstylist Amanda Shackleton from, and I’m here to show you a style to do if you have long, thin, straight hair. Now, what I did is gave the model’s hair a quick blowout with a round brush and the blow dryer, and then I did something really simple. I took a piece of hair at the back, starting at the top part of her hair, which is the crown, I lifted the hair straight up, gave it a shot of hairspray, and teased it at the root. Once it’s teased and it’s got a lift, give it a brush through, and just push it back like that. And, you’re going to want to do strands up into about, say, where the beginning of the ear starts, okay? And then, take all of that back, give it a nice brush through so you get a little bit of lift on the crown, just like that. And then, when you come back, I like to part it in the middle because I think it makes it really, really modern. So, I just take these front strands here, I let these go a little softer – I don’t want any height up here – and I just kind of, with my fingers, just fluff them up a little bit like that. Close your eyes, hon. Give it a quick spritz of hairspray. Give the top some more spray. And, there you go. I’m hairstylist Amanda Shackleton, and I’ve just shown you how to do a style for long, thin, straight hair.
