Low-fuss and simple is what this hairstyle is all about. These locks are pulled back behind one ear and swept over the opposite shoulder to create this casual yet sexy hairstyle best suited to frame a long face. Only a small amount of product is needed to tame fly-away hair and regular trims will help prevent split ends.
Elisabeth Moss looks youthful and fresh here in long golden blonde locks. She has an oblong face shape with a high forehead, so this slightly wavy hairstyle with a deep side part works well with her proportions. Elisabeth (and ladies with a similar face shape) would look great in an eye-skimming fringe with this â€˜do as well. Itâ€™s important for oblong face shapes to have volume in their â€˜dos, just like the lift at Elisabethâ€™s crown area. You can set your hair in large rollers to get this effect at home.
Color-wise, Elisabeth has been lightening up her look lately and is currently flaunting a summery golden blonde tone. She has a cool complexion with pink undertones in her cheeks so would look great in beige blondes, but this color also works and gives her a subtle warm glow. Ladies with warm, fair complexions would suit this shade the best.
Elisabeth Moss is an American actress who is famous for her role on the television series Mad Men.

Use your smoothing shine to add a small amount of gloss and to reduce fly-aways.
Smoothing Shine, Hair Spray, and Moisturizer
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 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 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 the Sides Under
To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.
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.
