Cobie Smulders was amazing in how I met your mother and her new hairstyle is the reason why we are speaking about her once again! The layers in her hairstyle are stunning! By layering your hair, you give it texture, depth, and shape while preventing your tresses from looking flat and one-dimensional. Adding layers can bring out curls or waves that would otherwise be concealed. This method makes fine hair look more voluminous and thick without compromising length. Generally, layered hair tends to be perkier and has more movement. Add volume to your hair to elongate your face with a short style. This is an ideal style for people who wish to make their faces appear longer than they are. Additionally, the volume helps you appear to have more hair than you actually do. A person with thinning hair can benefit from this method. She has placed her hair behind one ear, which is a very nice touch. Your prominent cheekbones are accentuated when you tuck your hair behind your ears! To take this look to the next level, Cobie has braided one side of her hair as well. This helps keep her hair out of her face and at the same time, adds something fun to the hairstyle.
When it comes to your makeup application, you want something that is formal and yet soft at the same time. You can go for a smokey eye and add some color to the bottom of your lid to help bring out the color of your eyes. Do not forget to contour and highlight your face and neck area to help create the illusion of a perfect oval face shape. Finish off with a bold statement like a red lip such as Cobie has done or you can go more subtle with a lip gloss.

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right 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 right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
2. Blow-dry Straight Back
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.
3. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides
Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.
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.
