Stana Katic Long Straight Light Brunette Hairstyle

Hairstyle Popularity Rating: ★★★★★


These locks are left out to fall over the shoulders showing off the jagged cut length and layers through the sides and front. The top is parted down the middle making this casual style a great look to compliment a round face for any low-fuss occasion. Regular trims is needed to prevent split ends.

Stana Katic looks simply gorgeous here in long, loose layers. This hairstyle is a great way for her to wear her fine hair long without losing any volume. The layers throughout allow Stana to add more body to her ‘do by blow-waving it, and they also soften up her features. Stana has a square face shape which means she benefits from softness in her ‘dos around the chin area, which is angular. As a square face shape she also benefits from side-swept bangs, but as her forehead isn’t too high she can pull off the center part seen here. The cheek length layers are ideal for framing square faces that typically have wide, strong cheekbones.

Stana’s color is another gorgeous feature of this ‘do. She has a warm skin tone and hazel eyes, making her suited to golden brown and blonde shades. Here, she goes for a bronde tone that has a caramel brown base and blonde highlights throughout. This color brings out her eyes and flatters her skin tone nicely.

Stana Katic is a Canadian-American film and television actress of Croatian Serb descent. She plays Detective Kate Beckett on the ABC series Castle.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

Placeholder articles

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.

2. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Placeholder articles

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.

3. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

4. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

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.

5. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

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.
