Faux Bob Hairstyle

Faux Bob Hairstyle // thepapermama.com A new favorite of mine, the Faux Bob Hairstyle. I wore this a couple of times while I was in Texas. It’s great when you’d like to wear your hair down…. but it’s too hot to really enjoy your hair blanketing your neck. I love it. Here’s how you can do this with your hair: 1. and 2. If your hair is mostly straight, I suggest adding a bit of curl (all the way up to those roots). Add hair spray to hold those curls. 3. Backcomb the back of your hair a bit. I do this AFTER I curl my hair, since my straight hair will just lose all of it’s backcombing if I mess with it too much. Some people like to backcomb BEFORE they curl their hair. 4. Separate your hair into 3 equal sections. The right, left, and backside of your hair. Tie each of these sections of hair at the ends with hair ties. note: I’ve seen people only use one hair tie for this, but I have many layers in my hair + it’s pretty slick. Three ties works better for me. 5. Pin all three tied sections UNDER your hair on the back of your head. 6. Pin any fly aways, or add pins to enhance curls, etc. Add hairspray, done! Enjoy!

    Tricky tricky, and here I found myself thinking you had short-ish hair. Lies.

      Every time I cut my hair short…. I regret it. SO this works! 😀

    How did you curl your hair? The curls look beautiful.

      I did it in layers. Starting curling at the bottom. Curled the mid hair, then the top. If that makes sense. 😉
