These chestnut locks are pulled up, twisted and pinned to the crown of the head to create this formal upstyle best suited to complement an oblong face. This look can be re-created at home with the tools and needs product for shine and hold.

Rose Byrne goes for a head-turning and elegant up-do here that is ideal for a formal night out. Rose has a narrow, oblong face shape and dainty facial features which look great with most hairdos, especially up-dos like this one. Her thick tresses have been loosely pulled back into a high chignon, creating volume at the crown of the head. A few layers have been left out to frame her eyes for a sexy peek-a-boo effect while the hair in the back is swept up on top. Overall, this hairstyle works well for her face shape and high forehead, and makes the most of her naturally thick hair texture.

Rose is a natural brunette and looks best in shades of chocolate and chestnut brown, thanks to her ivory skin tone and brown eyes. This particular shade of brown has rich golden undertones to it that gives her strands a glossy finish. For a sun-kissed glow, golden brown highlights have been added throughout the ends, setting off her dark eyes and rosy cheeks.

Rose Byrne is an Australian actress. Byrne made her screen debut in 1992 with a small role in the film Dallas Doll.

2. Blow-dry in Circular Movements with Fingers and Palm

Using a blow-dryer on a low heat setting, use the palm of your hand in slow circular movements to dry off the hair and to create a disorganized effect.

3. Use Large Hot Rollers

Apply wax to your fingertips then drag through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the left as you go. Pinching the ends will create soft texture.

6. Apply Hairspray

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.
