Want to try out a short, 1920’s bob but don’t want to cut your hair?

You can still try out this look with a faux bob!

Modern Salon recently shared how to do it. Just follow these easy steps!

How to style a faux bob:

Step 1: Create a side part. Part the hair into three sections, one in the back and two side sections, using your side part as a guide. Starting from the back, smooth hair with a flat iron.

Step 2: Direct ends inward.

Step 3: Continue to smooth with the flat iron until all three sections are complete.

Step 4: Smooth any flyaways with a smoothing foundation for hair.

Step 5: Lift the back section and spray a strong control hairspray underneath.

Step 6: Tease the bottom layer towards the scalp and cover the remaining hair on top.

Step 7: Roll the back section up and inward at the nape. Pin to create a faux bob. Repeat on sides if necessary.

Step 8: Shape the fringe into a smooth wave on the right side of the face. Secure with a hair clip and spray with a strong hairspray. Let sit for 10 minutes or until set and remove the clip.

Step 9: Add accessories for extra ’20s flair.
