- Step 1 : This style works on a variety of textures, however, and can look great on straight, wavy, dirty or clean hair.
- Step 2 - 3 and 4 : Impart your desired texture. To achieve a bouncier, looser feel, curl your hair with a 1 inch iron in fairly large sections.
- Step 5 : Create desired base at scalp. A bit of backcombing sometimes makes the faux bob a bit more believable.
- Step 6 : Gather the hair gently into the ponytail, you don’t need to really brush the hair back or smooth it at all, just secure it together.
- Step 7 - 8 : Tuck and secure the ponytail. I rolled the ponytail underneath Sarah’s hair and pinned it to her scalp. The ponytail makes pinning that amount of hair much simpler. I used 3-4 bobby pins during this step.
- Step 9 : Secure any loose bits.
- Step 10 : Adjust the form. I used an old fashioned lift, which can be purchased at Sally Beauty Supply for under $1. In the photo, I’m lifting up the backcombing and creating our desired bob-like full shape.
- Step 11 - 12 : Add some Hairspray and admire.
