Katie’s haircut style
This is a cut in the “bob” family. It has more texture than a classic bob which gives it such a fresh modern look.

What type/texture of hair suits this haircut?
This cuts works on many different textures and gives the appearance of a new look. If it’s kept too tidy it will look dated. You want to play up your hairs natural texture.

Describe how to achieve this cut.
You of course cannot have this exact cut…not only is hair texture important but the direction which your hair grows and changes will depend on how a cut sits. That being said the general cutting techniques used are as follows. Always begin with a classic bob shape. This cut is clean and sharp allowing it a long life. Point cut the interior, by this we mean the scissor line should not be precession straight, you want it to look a bit messy and point cutting helps with this look. The exterior of this cut should look sharp with the interior cut so you can keep it sexy polished or messy all over.

Is this cut easy to style?
This style seriously can be washed and left. The beauty of it is in its ability to go from messy to polished with ease. For everyday, I would add a bit of thickening cream to add volume or a curl defining lotion for a more natural wave effect. For something a bit more structured I would give it a casual blowout. The actual cut will keep the look together, it’s a hard cut to mess up and when you add a bit of moisture gloss it takes on a red carpet finish.

What face shape goes well with this haircut?
Modified, this cut will suit all face shapes… it is one of the joys of a bob. Tweaking the length according to your face shape is important. A super square jaw or round face may not suit the cut ending directly at the jaw line. If you have an overly long face, don’t go too short or it will elongate your jaw area. The fringe can narrow your face and enhance cheekbones as well.

GLOWING SKIN

GLOWING SKIN Katie glowed on the red-carpet at the Mad Money premiere. And yes her happy marriage and unlimited shopping allowance are to thank, but her glow can also be attributed to expert faux tanning. However, visiting a salon for professional tanning applications can be downright costly and time-consuming—so for similar results at home, try the GlowFusion Air Glow. The airbrush gun blows out a sheer, vapor-light, even mist that dries on contact. There’s no need to smooth, spread or touch. Just remember to exfoliate before each application for a streak-free finish. Available at Sephora.ca, $175.

MAKEUP TO SHINE

 
 
 

Skin
To get the look of Katie Holmes you want to start by evening out your skin tone with a foundation and concealer. To get Katie’s sun kissed glow, try mixing a liquid bronzer or illuminator right into your foundation. Mix one part foundation and two parts bronzer.

Eyes
Katie’s eyes steal the show. To get her look, start with a dark gray eyeshadow and dust it all over the eyelid and lightly into the crease. With a smokey gray eyeliner pencil, apply a thick line to the top of your eye lids and continue applying the eyeliner pencil on the bottom of your lash line. With a small smudge brush, smudge the eyeliner on both the top and bottom outwards, for the perfect smokey eye effect! Lastly, apply a thick coat of volumizing black mascara.

Cheeks
Katie’s cheeks are paired perfectly with her sexy smokey eye. With a look like this, you want all the focus to be on the eye’s, so you’ll want to keep your blush to a minimum. Try using a natural rose coloured blush. With a light hand, gently apply it onto the apples of your cheeks. To accentuate your cheek bones, try adding a powder bronzer or a darker shade of blush along the bottom of the cheek bone.

Lips
Your lipstick and gloss should always be in the same tonal family as your blush. Since the focus is all on Katie’s eye’s, she’s wearing a matte lipstick in Plum which helps to compliment the overall look.
