WOW WOW WOW! Jennifer Hudson is showing us that blunt cuts and pulled back hair is the way to go!
Firstly, this a blunt cut, medium length bob which shapes her face well. This cut ensures that she gets the perfect oval face shape. The straight hair is easy to style. You are going to need to apply product before you straighten your hair so that you do not burn your hair whilst you are ironing it. The side path makes it easier for you to pull the one side of your hair back and pin it in place. A bit of hairspray will help your hair stay in place and ensure that you do not have run away strands of hair.
Due to the style, you are going to need to use contact lenses if you wear glasses.
This is a bold hairstyle so you do not want to overpower the hairstyle will intense makeup. All you need to do a natural look and you are good to go.

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.

Take your section of hair and pull it tightly across to the opposite side and pin it securely into place.
5. Style Sides Down Using Gel-wax
Using a small amount of gel-wax, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For a more textured, grungy look, use more gel-wax while pinching the ends as you go.
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.
