The ends and long layers of this casual 'do are jagged cut to achieve texture through the ends. The top is parted on the side and together with the subtle body through the sides makes this low-fuss 'do perfect to frame a long face. A little product will help tame fly-away hair.

Sarah Paulson goes for a chic and cool wavy bob here with excellent results. Sarah has an oblong face shape with a high, rounded forehead and square chin, which makes her ideally suited to styles that frame her face and balance out the excess length. Sarah’s ‘do accomplishes this, thanks to the added volume at the crown and throughout the lengths and ends due to her kinky waves throughout. This hairstyle frames her face well and also adds volume and body to her fine hair texture.

As for her color, Sarah looks fabulous in this light honey blonde tone, with visible darker roots. The roots help to tone down her blonde and not wash her out, while they harmonize well with her dark eye color. The lighter ends gives her complexion a youthful warm glow, and provide a nice contrast with her brown roots.

Sarah Paulson is an American film, stage, and television actress. She began acting on stage, and in the 1990s starred in American Gothic, and Jack & Jill.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

Placeholder articles

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 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 Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Placeholder articles

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

4. 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. 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.
