This is such an awesome, simple and yet effective hairstyle that you can pull off. All you need to do is straighten your hair, place your bangs behind your ears, apply a bit of product so that your hair does not fly all over the show and you are set! Simple, easy and yet looks stunning! This is a formal hairstyle but if you use fun accessories, this can also be your new look to go and meet your friends for coffee. You hair is out of your face which means that your face is warm and open. You can wear glasses with this look but you want to make sure that you do not play around with your glasses too much as your hair behind your ears might start to come undone which could be irritating. As you can see, Vanessa has also dyed her hair and we love the color! You are going to want to touch up your color once every 6 weeks or so to ensure that the color stays vibrant. You are going to want to cut your hair once every 4 weeks or so to ensure that the cut stays in shape and that the ends of your hair stays healthy.

When it comes to your makeup application, you can do what you like as long as you stick to having just one focal point on your face. You can choose your eyes or you lip area. Keep in mind this is a formal look so a smokey eye with false lashes are always a good way to go. Whichever one you choose, it is important to highlight and contour your face so that you can create the illusion of a perfect oval face shape. Simple, easy and you will look astonishing for your event!

Styling Steps

1. Part the Middle

step 1

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

step 2

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

step 3

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. Wax Side Behind Ear

step 4

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear.

5. Apply Hairspray

step 5

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.
