This elegant faux bob is perfect for brides with longer hair who would love to go with a little shorter alternative on the actual day. It would also be great for a rehearsal dinner look. Below are images for each step of the process, as well as a description from the hair stylist herself, Kate Brown, of Katie Russo Beauty.
Items that you will need: bobby pins, hair spray (any kind will work but I like Freeze Finish in medium control), Schwarzkopfs Dust It, Bumble and Bumble's Texture Cream.
Step 1: Start with loosely curled hair and a small tease in the crown. Add Schwartzkopf's Dust It at the crown and Bumble and Bumble's Texture Cream throughout the hair.
Step 2: Section off hair right above the occipital bone.
Step 3: Next, tease the lower section. Add hairspray if needed.
Step 4: Roll the teased section under and pin towards the nape. Your bob will begin to take shape and should look a bit like a jelly roll at this point.
Step 5: Let the top section down, section off behind the ears, leaving the front two sections out and pinning the back section over your jelly roll, under the nape. You don't want bobby pins to show, so make sure that you are really tucking them up and under. Enter the pins vertically to avoid showing.
Step 6: Take a messy one inch, vertical part around the face and braid towards the ear. Tuck and pin the leftover hair behind the ear in the 'roll'.
Step 7: Take the leftover sections (should be on both sides of the head at this point) and neatly pin them back and under.
