Dawn Olivieri is an actress blessed with the genetics of a high fashion model. Large, wide-set eyes, high cheekbones and full lips - are we jealous much?! But, she also has a narrow face shape, which can pose problems with certain hairstyles. For example, wearing a super slick, flat hairstyle would create a gaunt look on Dawn and highlight her super slim physique. Thankfully, she knows how to pump up the volume and wears high volume hairstyles to "fill out" her narrow face shape. If you have a rectangular or otherwise long face shape, this hairstyle will work for you too. And, it's easy to do.
This medium length 'do is jagged cut all through the ends to achieve a textured look and feel and lightens the length. First, you will need to have a shoulder length bob hairstyle that is slightly layered. This hairstyle is great for narrow face shapes as the cut can be contoured to look more rounded and give volume to the hair. Next, use a curling wand to add loose waves to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. Instead of trying to preserve the waves, separate them by backcombing them slightly at the roots and combing through the ends with your fingers. Once you have 'fanned' out the ends, add a spritz of flexible hairspray to keep it in place. This low-fuss hairstyle is easy to maintain with regular trims every 4-6 weeks and needs a small amount of product for hold and shine.
This 'do looks just as good with a pair of jeans as it does with a cocktail dress, so give it a try if you like versatile styles!

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.
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. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers
Use your hand to scrunch the hair as you blow-dry. Remember to keep the blow-dryer on a low speed and heat setting and to leave some moisture in your hair.
4. 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.
