These locks are blow-waved straight and worn over the shoulders showing off the layers sliced through the sides and front. This low-fuss style is perfect to frame a round face and needs regular trims every 4-6 weeks to prevent split ends.
Kate Walsh goes for a chic look here with this straight, layered â€˜do. Kate has an oval face shape and low forehead that both benefit from a smooth sculpted look such as this one. The layers and jagged-cut ends frame her face nicely while adding movement to her â€˜do. This cut works with her natural straight hair texture to create a sophisticated yet easy to manage hairstyle that requires minimum styling time. Itâ€™s also a great â€˜do to show off a rich and vibrant hair color like Kateâ€™s.
Kate is a natural brunette but her copper locks work well with her peaches and cream complexion and blue-green eye color. This shades gives her hair a more vibrant finish and warms up her complexion better than a blonde or brown shade would. Ladies with fair to medium warm skin tones and light eyes will suit this color the best.
Kate Walsh is an American film and television actress, best known for her role on the ABC drama Grey's Anatomy.

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
3. 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 Back
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. 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.
5. 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.
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.
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.
