Patricia Arquette's Short Bob (2)

In some cases, the hair can be cut slightly shorter on the lower sections and the length increased by millimeters as you cut the upper sections to create an inner "bevel" which will allow the ends of the hair to curve inward slightly. This is good for coarser hair types.
After shampooing and conditioning the hair - preferably using a shampoo and conditioner formulated for smooth and sleek hairstyles - the hair should be treated with a leave-in conditioner and an anti-frizz serum and blown dry using a round brush. For those individuals with thicker hair, it works best to section off the hair so that you can work with smaller portions at a time.

However, if desired, you can always further smooth the hair by using a flat iron. Simply mist the hair lightly with hairspray, allow the spray to dry and pass the hair through the iron in thin slices.
Be sure to test the heat of the iron before allowing it to come in contact with your hair. You should be able to press a damp piece of tissue between the plates of the iron for 5-10 seconds and not encounter any scorching or smoking. If there is any visible smoke, smell of smoke or discoloration of the tissue then you need to adjust the temperature of the flat iron downward.
After the hair has been finally styled as desired, you can use a light misting of hairspray to give some hold to the style. If you wish, you can also use a light, spray laminator to add some extra shine to the hair.
