These brunette locks are left out to fall over the shoulders showing off the layers cut around the back and sides to compliment the length. This simple hairstyle is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks and needs only a small amount of product for shine.
Katie Lowes goes for a long wavy â€˜do here that has maximum volume, body and lift. This soft hairstyle is slightly unkempt, giving it a cool, casual finish. Katieâ€™s square face shape benefits from the smooth finish of this hairstyle and from the long layers around the face. Waves are always a good idea for squares as they soften up a strong jawline and any hard angles. The flipped over side part works for Katie too as she has a short broad forehead that looks best with this style of fringe.
Another fabulous feature of this â€˜do is the rich chocolate brown color. Katie has golden undertones to her complexion and light brown eyes, making her suited to golden brown and blonde shades of hair. Here, she goes for an all-over tone of rich chocolate brown that gives her skin tone a nice glow and brings out her eye color.

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left 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 left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
3. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off
Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.
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.
