Gina Rodriguez Medium Straight Bob Hairstyle - Medium Brunette
Gina Rodriguez is rocking her thick locks here in a sleek bob that compliments her oval face shape nicely. The side part breaks up excess length in her face and the layers around the ends help to break up any heaviness and add movement. Gina’s naturally thick tresses look their best in longer ‘dos like the one seen here, and when worn straight, has an ultra healthy and glossy finish. This style is easy to achieve with minimal styling time and can be worn day or night.
Gina’s color is also looking fabulous here and works well with her medium warm complexion and dark eyes. Having golden undertones in her skin, she looks best in brown or auburn hair that highlights her eyes and matches her skin tone. Here she has stayed close to her natural color with a rich chestnut brown shade that has a slight red undertone to it. This color gives her tresses a natural-looking finish while making her eyes pop. The sunkissed highlights brighten up her tresses nicely and gives her a healthy glow.
Gina Rodriguez is an American actress. She is known for her roles as Majo Tenorio in musical-drama film Filly Brown and as Beverly in the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.

1 . Part to the Left
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
2 . Use a Medium Radial Brush
A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back
Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.
4 . Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides
To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.
5 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
6 . Apply Smoothing Shine
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
7 . Apply Lacquer
Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
