Brie Larson is showing us a gorgeous formal hairstyle that is simple to style and makes a big impact. Her hair has been parted to one side to help frame her face. The only downside to this hairstyle is that glasses will not suit this look. Her hair has been placed behind one ear which opens up her face nicely. The straight, blunt cut hairstyle gives her hair definition which is great for a formal hairstyle. Do not forget to apply a serum to your hair before you use a straightening iron, to protect your hair from heat damage. If your hair is frizzy, you want to make sure that you apply a serum to help tame your hair so that when you sweat a little, your hair will not frizz. You are going to need to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your hair stays healthy and that the color sticks well to your hair.
When it comes to your makeup application, a smokey eye is always a great go-to for a formal event. You can add some natural flash lashes to make your eyes pop more and stand out. Do not forget to highlight and contour your face and neck area to help create the illusion of the perfect oval face shape. Now you are ready for your event and you are going to look drop-dead gorgeous!

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.
2. Apply Straightening Balm
Squeeze a small amount of straightening balm into your palms and then rub your hands together before smoothing the product evenly through damp hair.
3. Use a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.
