Elizabeth McGovern Medium Wavy Formal Hairstyle





Added: 17th January 2016
This brunette mane is blow-waved beautifully smoothing down the top while adding waves to the mid-lengths to ends for bounce and movement. The long bangs are smoothed to the side to soften the face and completes the over-all 'do brilliantly.

Elizabeth McGovern looks lovely here in a short wavy bob that shows off her fabulous features. Elizabeth has an oval face shape with striking eyes and strong cheekbones, which makes her well suited to short hairstyles that frame her face. This curled bob adds volume around her face and shows off her wonderful bone structure. Her thick hair texture looks great with this blunt cut and the curls add softness around the ends. Elizabeth’s bangs have been grown long and sit to the side, providing her with some forehead coverage and creating a cute peek-a-boo effect.

As for her color, Elizabeth looks gorgeous in this rich chocolate brown tone that flatters her fair complexion and light blue eyes. Although she could pull off light blonde and copper tones too, darker hair gives Elizabeth a more striking look and makes her eye color pop.

Elizabeth McGovern is an American film, television, and theater actor, and musician. She received an Academy Award nomination for her role as Evelyn Nesbit in the 1981 film Ragtime.

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 . Blow-dry the Back Under

To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

Be sure the section is dry and then repeat the step on a new section of hair directly behind.
