We are loving the blunt cuts at the moment and Jessica Lowndes is just proving why we love it so much!
The middle path allows this look to open up her gorgeous face and at the same time, allow the sides of the look to contour her cheek and forehead areas. The blunt ends give this look some drama and the black hair just emphasizes this point even more. The front is slightly shorter than the back which gives this look some depth and body which is always nice to see in a dramatic hairstyle. Please keep in mind that you are going to need to use a product on your hair before you straighten it to ensure that your hair stays healthy and does not get ruined by the heat of your hair iron.
Even though this look is very simple to style, you are going to need to trim your hair every 6 weeks or so to keep the ends blunt, sharp and crisp throughout the weeks. In terms of your makeup application, you can do pretty much anything you like but keep in mind you do not need to go too dramatic as you will lose the effect of your new stylish haircut.

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.
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.

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
