Description

Layered ends and waves encourage movement and body in this jaw length bob. This sassy 'do is perfect to compliment an oblong face and needs product to scrunch through the lengths and ends for a textured look and feel. Regular trims are needed to prevent split ends.

Cate Blanchett is flaunting a cool wavy bob here that has a fabulous finish to it. This hairstyle looks great on her oblong face shape and is ideal for her high, rounded hairline. This ‘do gives Cate oodles of volume and texture throughout, which pumps up her fine locks nicely. Cate has gone with a grown out, layered fringe here that is parted in the middle to create a nice frame for her face, especially around the eyes. This is a simple and pretty 'do that works for both casual and formal occasions and requires minimal styling for ladies with some natural wave or texture in their hair.

Cate's color is another stand out feature of this ‘do. Her locks have been lightened to a soft golden blonde shade, giving them a shiny and healthy sun-kissed, ultra light finish. This hair hue looks lovely with her cool complexion and blue eyes, as it adds some warmth to her skin tone and a soft glow. For best results, regular color treatments are needed to keep this color looking soft and shimmery, rather than dull and faded, which can occur when affected by too much sun.

Catherine Elise Blanchett, AC is an Australian actress and theatre director. She has received international acclaim and many accolades, including two Academy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

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. 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. Use a Medium Radial Brush

Placeholder articles

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.

4. Blow-dry Straight Back

Placeholder articles

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.

5. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

Placeholder articles

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.

6. Blow-dry the Crown

Placeholder articles

To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.

7. Use a Medium Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

A medium curling iron is used to create medium sized curls.

8. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Placeholder articles

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.

9. Use a Curling Iron to Curl the Back

Placeholder articles

Starting from the back, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until the entire back section of your hair is completed.

10. Use a Curling Iron on the Front and Sides

Placeholder articles

Starting at the front, 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 roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.

11. Scrunch Moulding Cream Through Hair with Fingers

Placeholder articles

Apply moulding cream to your fingertips and then tilt your head forward and scrunch your hair.
