Waves are dressed all through the back and sides of this medium length 'do to give this style plenty of bounce and shape best suited to frame a long face. This look is easy to re-create at home with the right tools and needs product to pinch through the ends for hold and texture.
Ellen Pompeo goes for a fun and flirty hairstyle here with a short curly bob. This hairstyle works well with her fine, straight hair texture and compliments her face shape. Ellen has a square face shape which benefits from curls and waves around the face that softens up her jaw line. Her short forehead is best suited to a side part, as seen here, and a grown out fringe. Ladies with a square face shape like Ellen usually do not suit a full-on fringe, especially if the forehead is short, as it creates a boxy look.
When it comes to her hair color, Ellen is working the caramel blonde and brown shades here, which are perfect for her skin tone and eye color. She has a warm skin tone with yellow and gold undertones to it, and her eyes are a light blue shade. Caramel blonde and brown tones give Ellenâ€™s complexion a sun-kissed look and intensifies her eye color.
Ellen Pompeo is an American actress who is most famous for her role on Greyâ€™s Anatomy.

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.
2. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off
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.
3. Use a Large Curling Iron
A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.
4. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron
Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.
5. Piece the Ends Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
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.
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.
