Hair tutorial: How to create a faux bob

Hope you’re enjoying this week of hair tutorials!

For my next tutorial I’ve found a way to have short hair but without the big chop – a faux bob.

Inspired by NYFW and the the recent hair trend for faux bobs, as seen a Rodarte and Oscar de la Renta (pictured below).

What you need:

  • Hair elastic
  • Comb / Brush
  • Bobby pins
  • Hairspray

How to create a faux bob

Step by step

1 – Section your hair. Take a section from ear to ear and clip the top section away.

2-3 – Braid the bottom section. Plait or braid the bottom section, whichever is easier for you to do.

4 – Pin the plait up. Fold the plait around and pin in place flat against your head.

5 – Tease for volume. Backcomb the top section to create some volume and shape so your hair hides the braid. If you have fine hair you can use some hairspray underneath.

6 – Smooth the top. Comb or brush the top of your hair to smooth it.

7-8 – Make a low ponytail. Use an elastic to secure all your hair into a low ponytail. Make sure the hair on the sides is long enough to cover your ears. Keep this loose as this forms the side of your bob.

9 – Tuck the ponytail underneath. Pin the ponytail in place underneath. Put a bobby pin through the elastic and pin to the braid. This will make it really secure.

10 – You’re done! Maybe add a spritz of hairspray to catch any flyaways and smooth your hair.

This faux bob hairstyle also looks great with curls. If you have layers, work with them to create a more natural looking bob.

This is new style for me as my hair is only just long enough to make this work, but I think it will become a regular favourite.
