I’m talking about the faux bob. Have you ever wanted to step out with shorter hair but didn’t necessarily want to chop off your luscious locks? Well then get into the spirit of the faux bob. It was all the rage at Oscar de la Renta, Jil Sander and Rodarte’s Spring Summer collections and Christian Dior’s Spring Couture. It’s been spotted on celebrities from Kate Beckinsale, to Vanessa Hudgens, Leighton Meester and Eva Mendes. So here’s how to get the hottest look this season.
Firstly, divide your hair into top and bottom half sections at the level of your ear.
Pin the top section of your hair up and didvide the bottom section of your hair into two.
Create two braids and pin them so they lie flat on your head.
Release the top half of your hair and spritz with Bumble and Bumble’s Does It All Styling Spray, this will give allow you to munipulate your hair as well as provide a good amount of grip.
Once you have styled your hair, whether you decide to have waves, curls or keep it dead straight, tie into a loose ponytail at the nape of your neck with a clear hair elastic.
Tuck your ponytail and the hair elastic underneath and pin it to the braids using bobby pins.
