Understated and chic is the main idea for this 'do. These medium fine locks are smoothed down with a middle part making this a great casual hairstyle to complement an oval face. Only a small amount of product is needed to tame fly-away hair and regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help prevent split ends.
Gwyneth Paltrow looks gorgeous here in a sleek and simple hairstyle. She has a square shaped face with a strong jaw line and cheekbones. Ladies with this face shape can experiment with a variety of hair lengths and cuts. Gwyneth tends to keep her hair in simple straight 'dos around shoulder length and this look is no exception. Here she is wearing a simple layered style that shows off her glowing skin and bright eyes. Her casually wavy locks look shiny, silky and healthy, and can be worn to formal events, as seen here, with ease.
As for her color, Gwyneth chooses to go for a golden blonde tone that is ideal for her ruddy complexion and blue eyes. She is perfectly suited to hair colors that have a yellow or gold base to them just like this light honey blonde shade. The all-over color is warm and vibrant and leaves her hair with a silky, shiny finish. It also shows off her tan and gives her complexion a nice glow.
Gwyneth Paltrow is an American actress, singer, and food writer.

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
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.
3. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers
Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.
4. Place Medium Velcro Rollers in Hair
Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the velcro roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft to the roots. Continue applying the velcro rollers all the way through the entire hair for a full volume finish throughout the sides. Keep the rollers in your hair for approximately 20 minutes.
Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.
6. Use Moulding Cream for Texture
Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then pinch small clumps of hair in an up and forward motion. Pinch the clumps in different directions for a messier look.
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.
