This short fancy 'do is tapered into the nape while the sides are jagged cut and to achieve a texture and shape. The top is parted on the side then pulled behind the ear to create this hairdo best suited to complement a long face. Product is needed for hold and shine and regular trims will help maintain shape.
Rachel McAdams looks lovely here in a short bob with a windblown finish. She has styled up her bob for a night out by adding extra volume at the roots and flipping the bangs over for a cool windblown look. Rachel has a square face shape, which is flattered by this bob that ends just below the ear. The deep side part helps to camouflage her high forehead and the layered ends bring out her killer cheekbones. This â€˜do is also perfect for her fine, straight hair texture.
Rachel can swing from dark brunette to light blonde without a hitch, thanks to her neutral skin tone and dark blue-green eyes. She has both warm and cool shades to her complexion making her suitable to a wide range of hair colors. Here, she has opted for a warm golden brown base with lighter blonde ends. This subtle sun-kissed ombre effect gives Rachel a warm glow and highlights her eye color.

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.
2. Use a Medium Radial Brush
A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3. Blow-dry the Back Under
To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.
4. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Sides
To blow-dry the sides, take out your first sections from the front and clip the rest of the hair up. Place your brush on top of the section, and starting from the roots, blow-dry down using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Continue this step until the hair is dry.
5. Wax Hair Down at the Back
Apply some wax to your fingertips and then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a sculptured look. Pinch clumps of hair in different directions for a messier result.
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.
7. Softly Flick Sides Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, and then starting about halfway down the hair shaft, pinch and drag the hair in a downward motion before flicking the ends out. Remember not to apply too much wax as it will weigh your hair down.
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.
