If we speak about looks in general, experiments are probably the first thing that comes to our mind in terms of securing the innovations and the fresh looks all the time. Discussing the changes, when looking for something special for the hairstyle of yours, you can opt for cuts that are most probably the first thing that comes to the mind. But what if you are reluctant to say farewell to the long and beautiful locks of yours? In this case the resourceful faux bob comes as an irreplaceable variant for having those long and stunning wonders and for experimenting with short hairdos! So you don’t necessarily have to go short if you want a bob! Learning how to style a faux bob hairdo will give you the chance to be super diverse every day and sometimes even unexpected, as you’ll be playing with lengths in a magical way.
The styles that may be created with a faux bob are just as diverse as the options of hairdos themselves. Thus for a retro feel you may try out the dos with tiny curls and some bigger ones for that sassy Hollywood look. And in case you want a modern interpretation, you may just leave your hair straight and gentle. This is, indeed, an irreplaceable option both for those yearning for changes and for the professional stylists.
We have already seen a number of celebrities having opted for a faux bob for important red carpet events, and some of the most memorable and impressive are the bobs of Cate Blanchett for the Golden Globe and Amy Adams for SAG Awards. However, instances of this may also be found among the celebs’ looks for the previous years like the pioneering dos of Emma Watson and Claire Danes who seem to be the first having opted for a faux bob instead of the cut. As for the fashion shows, lines like the one by Dries Van Noten also kept some space for this hairstyle.
This is a really universal and versatile hairstyle, which is suitable for any occasion from casual looks to red carpets and what is especially nice about it is that it’s easy to create and you don’t need a professional hair stylist to do it for you. All you need to do to make a faux bob is using a good conditioner for the start, then applying a strengthening cream right after, quickly drying it with a hairdryer in order to add some volume to the look. Afterwards, you may also need to curl the hair a bit and for doing that you’ll need to divide the hair into 5 sections only. When the curls are ready you only need to curl them down styling into a bob and securing with pins. For the final touch you just need to loosen the locks a bit and add some volume. If the hair has some natural texture, it will make the creation of the bob easier, naturally securing the volume. Also, you shouldn’t use products like hairsprays, in order to avoid the possible “helmet’ effect.
Thus, saying faux bob we mean a whole arsenal of versatile and universally suitable hairdo options, which are easy to create at home and are ready to secure the chic and the glam of your looks at the same time excluding the necessity of going short for making some changes.
