We have all seen that bob and “lob” (long bob) hairstyles are all the rage right now. More and more long haired beauties are following the hair trend and opting for a medium to short look. But what about the gals with long tresses that don’t want to cut all their length off and would rather take a shorter style for a dry run? The answer: a faux bob!
We’ve seen a number of your favorite celebrities wear this easy-to-achieve style, including the lovely Taylor Swift. So trick all your friends into thinking you lobbed off those locks and try these four easy steps to rock your faux bob tonight…
1. Create an easy (not too deep) side part in your hair.
2. Gather and secure hair with an elastic (like you’re making a low pony) about four inches from the ends of your hair.
3. Twist the hair up and under to the desired faux bob length, then tuck the hair under and secure with bobby pins.
4. Give your style an all-over mist of your favorite holding spray to secure the style.
**TIP** This can be done straight or wavy hair but the “bob” looks a little more believable if the hair has a little wave or texture to it.
