Do you love your long hair but wish you could have a fun, short bob for a day? Well it’s possible, without any cutting involved! The faux bob is perfect for those of us who love our long hair but want to change it up without losing the length for good. The best part is that it is easily achieved in just a few simple steps!
My client started with air-dried hair in which I curled with a 1” curling iron all over.
If you prefer hot rollers those work just as well, you just want to give your hair some movement.
Next, I took the ends of her hair and made them into a short ponytail with a clear hair elastic.
Then, I tucked the ponytail underneath her hair and used bobby pins to secure it and give it the faux bob look.
You can pin your hair higher or lower, depending on how short you want your hair to look.
After the hair is secured, take the loose top layers of the hair and re-curl some if needed, tousle with your fingertips and finish it off with some hairspray.
From long to short…
So the next time you’re feeling bored with your long hair but aren’t ready to make the commitment to short hair, try the faux bob and just have fun with it!
