Penelope Cruz has taken a classic hairstyle and added a color trend to make this hairstyle more current. She has curls in her hair which help to frame her face and neck area. The nice thing about her cut is that is it long enough to still frame her face well but short enough so that it will not take a long time to style in the morning. The star of this hairstyle is the two-tone that she is rocking. The tips of her hair has been dyed a natural blonde. The best part about this color style is that if you are afraid to dye your whole hair or commit to full highlights, this is a nice middle ground that you can do. It is also great to go for a two-tone because you do not have to worry about your root color showing. So you do not have to go color your hair as often. Make sure that you color your tips at least once every 6 weeks or so to ensure that the color stays vibrant and bright. Cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your hair stays healthy and that your color sticks better to your ends.
When it comes to your makeup application, you can do what you want. Make sure that your makeup application is perfect because of the openness of this look. Do not forget to highlight and contour your face and neck area to help give the illusion of a perfect oval face shape. You are going to love your new hairstyle as well as color!

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. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron
Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.
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.
