This hairstyle is more about the cut than the style itself. Katy Perry is rocking this straight bob. The nice thing about this bob is the blunt cut. It shows that you know what you want and you are not afraid to get it. The blunt technique also helps to frame your face and neck area nicely. Make sure that you apply a heat-protective serum before straightening your hair as the heat can cause damage. You are going to need to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that your hair stays healthy and the bob stays in shape.
When it comes to your makeup application, you can do what you like. keep in mind that a smokey eye is always a great go-to formal makeup application. You can add some false lashes to make your eyes pop more which will make your eye area the focal point on your face. Do not forget to highlight and contour your face and neck area to help create the illusion of a perfect oval face shape.

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.

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.
