These shiny black locks are cut to shoulder length to frame the face. Ideal for an oval or oblong face shape, this striking hairstyle will turn heads at any occasion and is easy to re-create at home with minimal styling products and tools.
Angela Bassett loves to wear sexy hairstyles that match her bold personality. This bob is not only fashionable for Angela but it also suits her oblong face shape and thick hair type perfectly. Angela has a high forehead and rounded hairline which looks best with a side part and long fringe, however on occasion a center part and grown out fringe can work too- as seen here. Angela's hair has been blow-dried straight then flat ironed to frame her face and highlight her strong cheekbones and large, almond-shaped eyes. This leaves her with a chic hairdo that has classic style and elegance. Not to mention, it is easy to style for a successful woman on the go.
Angela adds a striking finish to her simple bob with glossy jet black locks that create drama and intrigue. This works well with her medium-dark complexion and dark brown eyes. No highlights are needed here as this geometric bob looks fabulous in one striking color. The glossy tone of this 'do also gives her locks a healthy looking shine.
Angela Evelyn Bassett is an American actress and activist. She is best known for her biographical film roles, most notably her performance as Tina Turner in the biopic What's Love Got to Do with It.

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
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.
A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.
4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush
Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.
5. 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.

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.
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.
