The Faux Bob
Always wanted to know what you would look like with short hair? Now is your chance to transform your long curls into this vintage-inspired, Great Gatsby Bob, without even going close to a pair of scissors!
Detangle your towel-dried hair with a wide-tooth comb. Apply liberal amounts of curl defining cream evenly throughout the mid-lengths and ends of the hair, working up towards the roots.
Spray your hair with heat spray all over. Section your hair and curl it thoroughly from top to bottom.
Divide your hair into 2 sections, above and below your ears. Using a teaser brush, backcomb the roots of the lower portion of your hair. Now, take the end of your hair, twist it, and roll it towards the nape of your neck. Use bobby pins to secure the hair.
Let the top hair fall over the nape and give it some texture. Complete the bob by twisting pieces of your excess long hair around a u-pin and securing it into the volume at the nape. Continue this action until all the long hair is pinned up, making sure you maintain a bob silhouette.
The Flower Braid
Floral prints are very common, but floral hair, not so much. It is elegant and can be made in very simple steps.
Take two small sections of hair from both sides, twist them from the roots and tie them into a ponytail using a transparent elastic band.
Braid each of these ponytails all the way to the bottom. Make sure the braids are thick enough; if not, take bigger sections of hair from both sides.
Take both the braids and start twisting them around like a bun. Try to keep the top of the braids towards the outer circle and the bottom of the braids towards the centre to have a fuller look.
Use a lot of bobby pins and Hot Shot hold spray to secure the braided circle. Apply heat spray and curl the bottom of your open hair into loose, flowy curls.
The Triple Topsy Tail
A topsy tail is indeed a beautiful hairstyle using one ponytail. Imagine how beautiful it would look if we used three.
Prep your hair with Hot Shot Heat Protect spray and create light curls all over the hair.
Divide your hair into 3 rows and tie each into a loose low ponytail using transparent elastic bands. Spray the hotshot hold spray to keep the future steps locked in your hair.
Now, above the topmost ponytail, create a pocket with your fingers and flip all three ponytails through it. Now pull the hair to tighten and smooth out the twists.
Finish your look with some delicate pearls on the twists.
