How To Create a Faux Bob
Many women with long hair often think of going for a shorter bob cut, but realize that it is a big commitment to cut one’s hair. And sometimes, they may not really want to make that commitment, but just want to make a change for a little bit. Perhaps they’d like to sport a shorter style for a party, or want to play a harmless prank on a partner who loves longer hair. Whatever the reason, sometimes shorter is desirable.
So, here’s a little trick to let you create the look of a short bob style without losing any length. It’s called a “faux bob” (fake bob) and is fairly simple, though it may take just a little time and patience while you get the hang of the technique involved.
What You Will Need:
Here’s a list of the things you’ll want to have to make creating this style as easy as possible:
• Tail comb
• Flat Iron
• Smoothing Serum/Protective Product
• Bob Pins (lots)
• Ponytail Elastic
• Curling Iron
• Volumizing/Styling Product
You need to start with clean, dry hair. If the hair has been just washed or is very fine in texture, you may want to use a volumizing product or styling product to add some fullness or give it some tactile traction.
