Rock the Faux Bob

See also

Trying to achieve the latest and greatest red carpet looks can be pricey; one of those styles being the much coveted faux bob also known as “tucking”. It gives the illusion that you have shorter hair without having to sacrifice your much loved locks.
“There are many variations to “tucking” including a vintage version that includes a flashback to the 50’s or even looks from the 20’s as worn by Nicole Richie”, says celeb stylist Frank Barbosa who has worked with Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Garner. A modern “tucking” includes various textures and angles like the looks Taylor Swift has worn…you can even add a braid, says Barbosa.
Follow his tips below to try this trend:
Part your shoulder length long hair to the side. Add fringes and hold them in place with a workable hairspray such as IT&LY Pure Definition.
Loosely gather the bottom portion of your ends and tuck under into a roll. Secure with bobby pins. It is at this point where you choose how long or short you would like your bob.
If you have straight hair use a paddle brush to mold a smoother, sleeker “tuck”.
If you want to add a wave use your fingers instead to arrange curls in the position that you would like (brushing will only disturb the texture).
Once your hair has been tucked under, work the style with your fingers to fan out the sides.
For more add a headband or for added volume and tendrils, use the tail end of your comb to lift or pull out shorter pieces.
Finish with more off with hairspray to keep style shiny and in place.
