Kate Mara Short Straight Formal Hairstyle

Added: 2nd October 2015
This short sassy 'do is tapered into the head through the sides and back while the top jagged cut and left slightly longer to create this stunning style best suited to balance out a round face. The bangs are pinched down with product to soften the face and completes the over-all look magnificently.

Kate Mara looks gorgeous here in a beautiful brunette pixie cut. This hairstyle is ideal for women like Kate who have delicate facial features which often get overwhelmed or washed out by longer hairstyles. Here, Kate’s textured pixie cut brings all of the attention to her eyes and cheekbones and sculpts nicely to her oval face shape. While it is possible to have a pixie without bangs, the swide-swept fringe seen here is a great option for women who have high foreheads and prefer some coverage around the face.

Kate has fair, peaches and cream skin that has some pink undertones to it, and light brown/hazel eyes. She is best suited to copper red and brown tones that warm up her skin and bring out her eyes. This chestnut brown shade does just that, plus it gives her hair a rich, healthy looking finish.

Kate Mara is an American actress who is known for her role in House of Cards.




1 . Wax Hair Down at the Back

Apply some wax to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look. Pinch clumps of hair in different directions for a messier result.

2 . Style Sides Down Using Wax

Using a small amount of wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward, pinching motion. For added texture, apply more pinching and more wax.

3 . Style Bangs to the Right Using Wax

Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.

4 . 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.
