Kate Beckinsale Long Wavy Hairstyle - Light Brunette
Kate Beckinsale looks lovely here in a cool, casual wavy hairstyle. Having an oval face shape and high hairline, Kate’s face looks best in ‘dos with a grown out fringe and longer layers around the ends. This layered 'do creates a nice frame for her face and allows her hair’s natural texture to do its thing, adding body and bounce all over. A center part finishes this ‘do off nicely and works well with her high forehead and prominent cheekbones. She could pull off bangs well but looks just as good with a grown out fringe.
Kate has a warm, fair complexion with golden undertones and light green eyes. This makes her suited to hair colors that have a yellow or gold base to them, like the caramel brown seen here. This natural-looking shade is ideal for her complexion, plus it brings out the intensity of her eye color. It also gives her cheeks a nice rosy glow. The subtle caramel highlights throughout give her 'do a nice finish with lots of shine.
Kate Beckinsale is a British actress. After some minor television roles, she made her film debut in Much Ado About Nothing while still a student at the University of Oxford.

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 Paddle Brush
A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.
3 . Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush
Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.
4 . Use Large Hot Rollers
A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.
5 . Apply Hot Rollers Vertically to the Side
Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically, making sure to roll it backwards, along the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
6 . Apply Hot Rollers Vertically in the Back
Take a section of hair from the nape no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller vertically down the hair shaft to the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.
7 . Scrunch Hair Using Moulding Cream and Fingers
Apply your moulding cream to the ends of your hair and then lightly pinch and scrunch the hair before allowing your moulding cream to set.
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.
