Introducing the Faux Bob

Written by Katy Pearson

Fancy a chic bob, but don't want to actually chop into your locks?

Here A-list hairstylist Jonathan Long, from Lockonego (www.Lockonego.com) in the Kings Road, talks you through how to get the faux bob.

“This is a great way to wear a bob if you are too afraid to go for the chop and the perfect style to ensure you have a great new look, in an instant," said Jonathan.

The Faux Bob"Complement this glamorous new look with elegant, high shine colour - try Clairol’s Nice ’n Easy Colour Blend Foam range for multi-dimensional, glamorous locks.”

Get the look guide

Begin by working Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte into the roots of your clean, dry hair to boost volume and increase shine

Turn your head upside down and massage your scalp with your fingertips to encourage even further volume at the roots

Create a rough side parting using your fingers and tie your hair into a low bun, securing with a clear elastic hair-tie at the nape of your neck

Carefully loosen out the bun by shaking with your fingertips until the bun becomes baggy and hair from the front starts to fall onto your face

Finally, tuck any loose tresses under the bun to create an instant bob and secure with bobby pins that match your hair shade. Make sure you leave some hair at the front to fall loosely and spray a generous mist of Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce hairspray.
