Candace Bushnell looks gorgeous with this medium straight bob. Her hair is a bit shorter in the back than it is in the front to help shape the face nicely and give the look some volume and depth. The front bangs are longer to give the illusion of a longer neck which is something we all want every once in a while. I like the fact that her root color is showing a little bit as it gives this look two tones and shows us that it is ok if you cannot get your roots touched up in an instant. Please do not forget to apply a straightening serum on your hair before straightening it to ensure that you keep your hair looking healthy and full.
Her part allows one side of her face to be opened and the other side to be covered to ensure that she achieves the perfect oval face shape. To finish off this look, you do not need a lot of makeup. A simple natural smokey eye will look lovely with this look and a plain lip to tie it all together.

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.
2. Apply Straightening Balm
Squeeze a small amount of straightening balm into your palms and then rub your hands together before smoothing the product evenly through damp hair.
3. Use a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

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.
