The edges of this brunette bob is jagged cut then blow-waved straight to achieve this smooth and sexy hairstyle. The bangs are also jagged cut and worn down to frame the top of the face for a fabulous finish. This hairdo is great for any day or night occasion and is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks.
Katie Holmes is flaunting a classic pageboy bob here with jagged ends. Katie has a square face shaped blended with a heart shaped face, meaning her face is predominately wide but with a pointed chin area. Itâ€™s because of her chin that she can get away with this â€˜do, as it is too boxy for full square faces. Katieâ€™s textured bangs and ends take away any blunt edges, which is a must for anyone with an angular jawline.
The color is simply gorgeous for Katieâ€”a monochromatic, rich chocolate brown shade brings out her green eyes and matches her tanned complexion. This hair color is perfect for light to dark skin tones that have golden/warm undertones. It is especially good for bringing out blue or green eyes too! Ladies who have lighter skin than Katie would benefit from some lighter brown babylights throughout the lengths and ends to break up the color slightly.

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.
2. Use a Medium Radial Brush
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. Blow-dry Straight Back
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.
4. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
5. Blow-dry Bangs Forward
When blow-drying your bangs forward, clip your hair back leaving only your bangs out. Position your bangs evenly in your brush, taking the hair in a forward direction. Blow-dry from roots to ends, keeping the tension consistent, and evenly distribute heat over the whole section of hair that you are working on. Repeat until the hair is dry. This will stop any frizz that may occur.
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.
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.
