|Studio Gear 'Burlesque' Lipstick | Necklace|
A faux bob is great for anyone with collar-bone length hair or longer. And I love doing it on second day hair that was curled the day before- this way I still cute use out of those curls, but I don't have to pull out my iron and touch up.
To get started:
Working with hair that is pre-curled is best, because messy, loose, and tousled is what we are going for!
Secure your hair in the back in a very low and loose ponytail. Easy-peasy
Next take the ponytail end and roll it under back up towards the nape of your neck. Be sure the ends of the hair are wound into the roll securely so that they don't pop out and reveal your long hair secret.
Once the roll is tight to the hairline, use one hand to hold it, while the other hand is going to secure the roll using spin pins or bobby pins. You want to get the pins far into the roll so that they grasp the hair that is closest to your scalp. To do this, separate the roll in a few areas, giving you a clear pathway to the scalp then simply adjust any openings that you created to hide the pins once more. I try and anchor my spin pins through the elastic itself for added security.
Once you feel the roll is good and sturdy, go back and loosen it up considerably. The name of the game is 'relaxed' and if it's held too tight, it can look 18th century real quick! The top layer is the real trick to pulling off the bob, so loosen any shorter pieces you may have around your face so they hang free and complete the cut-look.
For added punch you can secure one side behind your ear with a jeweled barrette, then throw on your favorite shade of Bordeaux lipstick and you are ready for your date night!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have some fun Valentine's Day plans in your future. xoxo
