Kelly Rowland is reaching for the clouds with this hairstyle and we are here to back her up! An oblong face would look great with a clean, tight updo, such as a high bun. This sleek style emphasizes the width of the face, helping to balance out the longer shape. Kelly has taken this idea to the next level by making this style a little bit messier. The pieces that are sticking out are designed to frame her face as well as give this hairstyle a more casual look and feel to it. The top has been designed like a little bow which is stunning! It is not too tight and not too loose... it's just right! The bangs finish off this look by framing her forehead and placing attention on her magnificent eyes. The bottom of the style is more open which makes her chin and neck area another focal point on her face. Overall, you are drawn to the center of her face which gives you the illusion of a perfect oval face shape. It is going to take you some time to style this hairstyle, but once you get it right, you will see that it is so worth it! You will be the talk of the town with this updo hairstyle!
If your hair is big and grand, you will want your makeup application to be simple and natural. Your browns and golds can be used for your lids, or you can even do a simple wing liner. Add a nude or pastel lip color to complete the look and you are ready to take on the day!
