Gemma Arterton is looking elegant here in a short and sweet hairstyle. It is flattering to her features as the slightly curved fringe helps to balance the width of her face and the asymmetrical styling helps to keep a focus on her best feature -her bright, expressive eyes. Gemma's delicate facial features are complimented by this shortâ€™ do and her wispy side-swept bangs focus the attention on her beautiful eyes. The end result is a feminine, modern and sophisticated look with some added lift at the roots.
Gemma is a natural brunette with brown eyes and an olive complexion. Here, she goes for a golden brown base with subtle highlights throughout. This gives her an overall chestnut brown tone with a hint of warmth that flatters her skin tone and brings out her eyes while creating dimension and interest to her cut.
Gemma Christina Arterton is a British actress. Arterton made her film debut in the comedy film St Trinian's.

Comb your hair into the desired direction that you require for styling.
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.
3. Blow-dry Bangs Forward to the Left
To blow-dry your bangs to the side, clip the back and side sections up, leaving just your bangs out. Place your brush beneath your bangs, holding your hair to the side and remembering to hold the tension between your hair and brush. With your blow-dryer on a low setting, apply heat by starting at the roots and make sure to stretch your hair out to the ends. Repeat until your hair is dry.
