How to Fake a Bob Hair Cut

Who doesn’t love the way a classic bob looks, but sometimes, taking a pair of scissors to a head full of lengthy locks can be an intimidating option. Luckily, with this easy-to-do hair style, you can have the look of a chi- or shoulder-length bob whenever you feel like it, without actually losing an inch of your silky strands for real.

You’ll need:
·         -A 1 ½ inch curling iron   
·         -Heat tamer spray
·         -One stretchy hair elastic
·         -Bobby Pins
·         -Hair Spray

Step 1:
The first thing you are going to be doing is add some waves to your hair. You’ll want to start by applying a heat tamer to prevent any damage and add some shimmer to your hair. Then, for best results, spread a small amount of a texturizing styling cream through the lengths of the hair only. Try TIGI Manipulator, or a similar product. Now you are ready to curl. Wrap one-inch sections around the curling iron, concentrating mainly on the top layer of hair. This is the hair that will act as “the bob,” as the rest of your hair will be pinned underneath. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, you may not even need to do this step.

Step 2:
After you have loosely waved your top layer of hair with the curling iron, you are ready to create your bob. You are going to start by gathering all of your hair into a very low pony tail. Wrap the hair elastic tightly only two inches from the tips of your hair. The pony tail should be extremely loose. Your next step is to roll it up. Tuck the tips of your hair into the hair elastic the best you can, and then carefully roll the pony tail toward the nape of your neck to meet your hairline. Tuck it under, and pin it securely in place with as many bobby pins as it takes to create the look of a bob. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it should be sturdily in place.  It will look much better after a bit of styling.

Step 3:
You have created your bob, and now it’s time to give it some style to complete the look. Carefully pull a few pieces of hair out in the front to frame your face. If you accidentally pull too long of a strand out, try to tuck it back under and secure it with a bobby pin. Then, fluff the hair lightly all the way around to give it a tousled look and loosen it up a little. You may or may not need to touch it up with the curling iron to get the right shape. When you do, dowse your entire head with enough hair spray to keep it all in place.
