Description

This gorgeous 'do is pulled back and pinned in place to create a sassy up-do that will turn heads at any occasion. The stunning hairstyle is ideal for a triangular face shape and is easy to re-create at home. It needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Mariska Hargitay goes for a cool up-do here pinning her locks up at the back and leaving out her longer layers in the front. Mariska usually wears her hair down so this 'do provides her with a great option for a formal event. Here she softens up her strong jawline by wearing longer layers around her face that highlights her cheekbones and hugs her jawline. The center part gives her forehead some coverage while creating a sexy peek-a-boo effect, while the rest of her hair is pinned back, leaving lots of volume around her face.

Mariska has dark eyes and a tanned skin tone which makes her suited to brunette and auburn colors of hair the best. Here, she goes for chocolate brown hair that flatters her warm complexion and showcases her striking eyes. The tips are a sun-kissed chestnut brown tone that gives her 'do an extra dose of style and warmth.

Styling Steps

1. Part the Middle

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

2. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

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.

3. Finger Dry the Back with Blow-dryer

Placeholder articles

Use your blow-dryer and your fingers to dry the back of your hair by moving your hair around to allow the heat to pass through it.

4. Blow-dry the Crown

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

5. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Right

Placeholder articles

When blow-drying your bangs to the side, section your hair up and clip your hair back to leave only your bangs out. Remember to make sure that your bangs are damp to make blow-drying more effective. Next, take your brush and place it underneath the hair and then blow-dry starting from the roots, adding tension to the hair as you go. Slowly pull your section down to the ends and continue until dry.

6. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Left

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry your bangs to the side, clip the back and side sections up, leaving just your bangs out. Place your brush beneath your bangs, holding your hair to the side and remembering to hold the tension between your hair and brush. With your blow-dryer on a low setting, apply heat by starting at the roots and make sure to stretch your hair out to the ends. Repeat until your hair is dry.

7. Pin Hair

Placeholder articles

Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.

8. 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.
