How To Make A Faux Bob

Have you ever noticed how some stars rock the red carpet with long, gorgeous locks one night and show up a few days later with a chic bob? Sure, there are extensions and major haircuts that might come into play sometimes, but one of the latest celebrity hair trends is the faux bob. Believe it or not, it’s easy to create yourself!

Start out with a reparative shampoo in the shower, which will strengthen weak or broken hair, leaving it much softer and more manageable. A complementary conditioner will further prep your strands for styling.

Now, it’s up to you to decide if you want a curly or straight faux bob. Depending on your choice, you may need to use a curling iron or a straightener to achieve the texture you’re looking for.

When that’s finished, gather your hair into a low ponytail and use a small elastic to secure it loosely toward the end of the tail. Tuck the end underneath the tail and roll the entire thing up toward the nape of your neck. It’s okay if a few pieces fall out – especially if you have shorter layers!

Secure the roll of hair in place with plenty of bobby pins, then use a hairspray like Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray for added hold. That’s it!

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
