Description

This chic bob is pulled back and and pinned in place to create this sleek up-do that will turn heads at any occasion. The stunning hairstyle is easy to re-create at home and needs strong hold product to keep it in place all day or night.

Lana Parrilla goes for a classic up-do here pinning her locks up at the back and leaving out her bangs in the front. Lana usually keeps her hair short to medium length which suits her square shaped face nicely. Here she softens up her wide jawline by wearing a longer, side swept fringe that sculpts to the face and highlights her cheekbones. The deep side part and side-sweeping bangs gives her forehead some coverage while creating a sexy peek-a-boo effect, while the rest of her hair is pinned at the nape in a stylish chignon.

Beth has dark eyes and an ivory skin tone which makes her suited to dark espresso brown and black hair colors the best. Here, she goes for an all-over rich brunette tone that flatters her peachy complexion and showcases her striking dark eyes. This is a natural-looking color for Lana that gives her tresses a shiny finish.

Lana Parrilla is an American actress, best known for her roles on television and radio. She was a regular cast member in the fifth season of the ABC sitcom Spin City from 2000 to 2001.

Styling Steps

1. 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. Smoothing shine will work best on any hair type and style, but is especially good for smoothing down frizzy hair.

2. Part to the Right

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. 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.

4. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

Placeholder articles

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.

5. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. Pin the Side Back

Placeholder articles

Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.
