Sexy and simple is the main idea for this 'do. These medium-fine locks are smoothed down with a side part making this a great hairstyle to complement an oval face. Only a small amount of product is needed to tame fly-away hair and regular trims every 4-6 weeks will help prevent split ends.
Jennifer Lawrence is looking gorgeous here in a layered shoulder length hairstyle. She has an oval-shaped face with a narrow, rounded jaw line and strong cheekbones. It is the most proportioned of all face shapes and suits the widest variety of hairstyles. Ladies with an oval face can experiment with a variety of hair lengths and cuts, just as Jennifer does. She tends to keep her hair in simple 'dos around the shoulders or longer, and this look is no exception. Here she is wearing a layered style that in layered around her jawline, which shows off her face brilliantly. Her straightened locks look shiny, silky and healthy with this haircut, that can also be worn up for extra versatility.
As for her color, Jennifer chooses to go for a champagne blonde tone that is ideal for her peachy complexion and blue eyes. She is perfectly suited to hair colors that have a beige base to them just like this light blonde shade seen here. The all-over color is warm and vibrant and leaves her hair with a silky, shiny finish. Regular toner touch ups will ensure that the hair looks soft blonde rather than brassy.

Use a paddle brush to blow dry the hair flat and smooth for best results.
Mousse, Hair Spray, and Moulding Cream
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.
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.
A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.
4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush
Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.
5. Style Hair Down at the Back Using Moulding Cream
Apply some moulding cream to your fingertips and then pull it through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a textured look.
6. Style the Left Side Forward and Wispy Using Moulding Cream
Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingers and then pinch the ends on the left hand side of your style down and forward for face-framing texture.
7. Style Sides Down Using Moulding Cream
Using a small amount of moulding cream, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go sparingly.
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.
