This medium length 'do is cut slightly short through the back with front angled down to create this smooth hairstyle best suited to frame a round face. This look is perfect for those with fine to medium hair wanting a style that is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks.

Mariska Hargitay goes for a chic and fashion forward look here for this elegant evening event. Mariska has an oval face shape, which looks great with this graduated bob cut. The ends have been jagged cut to add extra movement and they also create a nice frame for her face. Mariska’s center part gives this hairstyle a striking look and matches the sleek, straight texture of the rest of her hair nicely. This timeless cut makes the most of Mariska's fine hair texture and it also shows off her glossy color well.

Mariska’s locks look shiny and healthy thanks to the rich tone of brunette she is flaunting. Having a warm, tanned complexion and dark eyes, Mariska is suited to golden and red-based brown tones. Here, she goes for a rich chestnut brown shade that compliments both her skin tone and eye color well.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer


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 the Middle


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. 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.

4. Blow-dry the Back Under


To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.

5. Blow-dry the Sides Under


To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.
