The length of this brunette mane is blunt cut and styled with only loose movement through the mid-lengths to ends to give this style a little body and volume. The top is parted on the side making this casual look perfect to frame a long face. Regular trims is needed to prevent split ends.

Elizabeth McGovern looks elegant here in a wavy bob that has a vintage twist to it. Reminiscent of her role on Downton Abbey, Elizabeth goes for a Twenties-inspired look that gives her bob some flair. Elizabeth has an oval face shape and high forehead, which is ideal for flaunting a bob. The deep side part and side swept fringe is another great feature for her as it provides some forehead coverage and frames her face. The wavy texture adds volume and body to her fine hair and gives her bob some movement. This hairstyle is a great option for ladies who need to glam up their bob for a night out.

Elizabeth has fair, cool skin and very light blue eyes so she is suited to cool browns, copper and blonde tones. Although she could get away with wearing a lighter shade without a problem, instead she opts for a dark brown tone, which creates a gorgeous contrast with her skin tone and eye color.

Elizabeth McGovern is an American film, television, and theater actress, and musician.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse


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 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. Part to the Left


Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left 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 left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.
