Maria Bello has bold, expressive facial features and a strong bone structure, which is nicely highlighted by her soft wavy tresses here. Having an oblong face shape, Maria has a wide, broad forehead to contend with as well as a more vertical shape to her face. Voluminous hairstyles that have lots of body and volume around the jaw and neck area are ideal for her as they balance out her face shape the best. This simple wavy bob does just that for Maria, while the blunt ends give her fine hair a thicker appearance. She would look great in bangs as it would give her broad forehead some coverage, however the grown out fringe is working well for her too.
Maria has a warm skin tone, dark eyes and naturally brunette hair. Here, she goes for a dark brown roots for a natural look, with golden blonde tones through the lengths and ends. This color brightens up her complexion and gives her an all-over warm glow.

Hair Spray and Moulding Cream
Blow Dryer and Curling Iron
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.
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.
3. 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.
4. Use a Large Curling Iron
A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. Style the Back Out Using Moulding Cream
Using moulding cream and your fingers grab the mid-lengths of your hair and then drag it out and upwards for a full and messy result.
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.
