Only long layers are cut through the edges of these lush locks to lighten the length and to add a little texture. The top is parted on the side leaving the length to fall over one shoulder for a sweet and sexy look and feel. This low-fuss look is perfect for those wanting a quick and easy 'do and needs regular trims every 4-6 weeks to prevent split ends.

Sarah Rafferty looks gorgeous here in a long hairstyle that has a classic, romantic feel to it. Thanks to her naturally thick locks, Sarah’s long uniform-length tresses are full of body and shine. Minimal layering is needed here as Sarah has an oval face shape and doesn’t have a lot of angles to camouflage, but the ends do need some thinning out to avoid a bulky look. A deep side part and grown out fringe works well with her hairline and forehead shape. Sweeping one side to the back shows off her neck and shoulders nicely while giving her long locks a simple stylish finish.

Sarah has a fair complexion with warm undertones and hazel green eyes. She can pull off light golden tones including blonde and caramel brown, but sticks with her natural copper tone which gives her excellent results. Her color is full of shine and dimension and looks best without highlights for a rich, glossy finish.

Sarah Rafferty is an American television and film actress. She is known mainly for her role as Donna on the USA Network legal drama Suits.

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. Part to the Left

Placeholder articles

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 Paddle Brush

Placeholder articles

A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.

4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush

Placeholder articles

Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.

5. 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.

6. 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.
