This post will tell you how to copy Jessica Simpson’s “sex kitten” sexy, tousled waves on your hair. This hairstyle is best on hair that is past the shoulders in length and has long layers cut into it.
To get this style to look its best, wash your hair the night before and apply some mousse while it’s still damp. Let your hair completely air dry, or you can blow-dry it to get most of the moisture out. Hair that is clean–but not freshly washed–right before you style it will hold the style better.
When it’s time to style your hair, apply some shine serum to the ends to avoid frizzies.Using a large-barreled curling iron, take a 2-inch section of your hair and wrap it around the curling iron in a spiral-like fashion. Roll the hair up until it is 2 to 3 inches from the root. You want the top of your hair to be smoother, so don’t curl all the way up to the scalp.Once a section is curled, carefully remove the curling iron in order not to disturb the newly-formed wave. Spray the curl with an aerosol hair spray and move on to the next section of hair. Repeat this curling and hair spray process.
How to Style Jessica Simpson’s Hairstyle
Once all of your hair has been curled and set with hair spray, flip your head upside-down and tousle your hair with your fingers.
When you’ve tousled the hair, flip your head back up and, using a Mason Pearson brush (see resources), back comb the hair only at the crown to create a sexy, ‘60s bump.Now smooth the top layers of your hair by using the Mason Pearson brush. Carefully brush the top portion of the top layers until they sit smooth, with no obvious holes or back-combing showing through.
Create a side part. Swoop your bangs, if you have them, over one eye for extra sex appeal.
Finish off this style with a light misting of hair spray to hold the style.
