This concave bob is blow-waved to show off the angled lines cut down towards the jaw-line to shape this classic 'do perfectly to compliment the face. This smooth 'do is easy to maintain with regular trims and will need regular trims every 4-6 weeks.
Maybe itâ€™s her ultra-photogenic face, but Keira Knightley can do no wrong when it comes to her hair and makeup. Her latest hairstyle is a modern version of the classic bob, which she debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival. Keiraâ€™s dark chestnut brown hair has been cut in a graduated bob, with a deep asymmetrical side hair part adding a dramatic angle. With her delicate feminine features and a neck so long that a swan would be jealous, Keiraâ€™s bob is the perfect addition to her A-list look.
For this red carpet event, Keira chose to make her eyes smolder with dark brown eyeliner and eye shadow that has been slightly smoked out. Her fair skin is looking as flawless as ever, and a touch of soft pink on the lips is all Keira needs to complete this look. It also matches her adorable printed dress. An A+ look for Keira (and her stylists!)
If you covet Keiraâ€™s look, ask your hairstylist for a graduated bob, cut with an angled side part. If you have naturally straight hair, be forewarned that this style looks best with a soft curl in the end, so you may need to add extra hair styling time to achieve this effect.
Under 21, 21 - 30, 31 - 40, and 41 - 50
Use your finishing products to smooth down the ends and direct your hair into place.
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. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. Apply Smoothing Shine
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.
6. Apply Hairspray
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.
