Kelly Rowland Short Straight Bob Hairstyle - Black
Kelly Rowland loves to wear chic and sexy hairstyles that match her bold personality. This bob is not only fashionable for Kelly but it also suits her oblong face shape and thick hair type perfectly. Kelly has a high forehead which looks best with a center part and grown out fringe, as seen here. The rest of the hair has been blow-dried straight then flat ironed to frame her face and highlight her strong jaw line. This leaves her with a chic hairdo that has classic style and elegance.
Kelly adds a striking touch to her simple bob with glossy jet black locks that create drama and intrigue. This works well with her warm, dark complexion and dark brown eyes. No highlights are needed here as his pageboy bob looks fabulous in one striking color.
Kelly Rowland is an American singer, songwriter, actress, television personality and mogul . Rowland rose to fame in the late 1990s as one of the lead singers of Destiny's Child, one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time.

1 . Part the Middle
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.
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.
4 . Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
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 . Use a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

7 . 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.
8 . Apply Hairspray
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
