Only long layers are cut around the edges of this brunette mane to lighten the length and to encourage the movement and bounce of the soft waves. The width and body makes this casual style perfect to frame a long face and needs a little product to tame fly-away hair.

Uzo Aduba goes for a trendy and chic look here with a simple wavy bob that highlights all of her best features. Uzo has an oblong face shape that looks best in hairstyles that end around the shoulder line and add width to her face. This wavy bob does just that. Uzo’s natural waves balance out her long face shape while letting her hair’s natural texture do its thing. Working with her natural waves allows Uzo to cut down on style time and keep her locks healthy by foregoing heat styling tools. The center part is working well for her here although her low hairline would also work well with a deep side part. Overall this is a soft and easy style that is just right for her face shape and hair type.

As for her color, Uzo looks best in black and brown tones thanks to her warm, dark complexion and dark eyes. Here, she is flaunting a glossy espresso brown base color with warm mahogany highlights throughout. The red tones in her hair warm up her complexion nicely and brings the focus to her eyes.

Uzo Aduba is an American actress and singer. She is known for her role as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on the Netflix television series Orange Is the New Black.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

Placeholder articles

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. Part the Middle

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your nose 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 middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.

3. Scrunch Dry Hair with a Blow-dryer and Fingers

Placeholder articles

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. Apply Smoothing Shine

Placeholder articles

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.

5. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

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.
