This hairstyle screams punk rock and it is all because of the cut! This medium length bob might be simple but it has a lot of life. The main thing about this look is the fact that the ends are cut bluntly. This is the secret to this hairstyle. You will not need to spend a lot of time straightening your hair but you are going to need to get your hair cut every 6 weeks or so to ensure that the ends stay blunt to complete this look. You are going to need to use a product to protect your hair before you straighten it and after to ensure that it stays in place and shines in the sunlight.
The sky is the limit when it comes to your makeup. You do not need to do dramatic makeup with this look as the cut is already dramatic but a little glitter on your lids and lips will go a long way with this look.
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.

4. Apply Smoothing Shine
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
