Styling A Faux Bob Haircut

emmy-9Before anyone panics--or the opposite and starts telling me how excited they are that I have finally cut my hair--I have not cut my hair. I was thinking recently what a shame it is that I have long hair and I never style it in interesting ways. This is largely because my usual style (an overnight curling technique) is so low maintenance and easy that most mornings I can't be bothered with something that would take longer.    emmy-23Still while I'm not making any promises, I would like to switch things up a bit more and practice some of the fun hairstyles I used to attempt on occasion. I do say attempt because while I have been known to write hair tutorials for professional sites, I have always written them as very much a non-expert. On this day I decided to try out a messy faux bob for fun because while I am not ready to cut my hair, I do miss a bob. A bob haircut is pretty much my default style, I mean I did have a pixie cut for several years, but I grew up with a bob hairstyle--look at my baby pictures and I have this hairstyle! Plus, with 2019 coming to an end we are heading into 2020 and the 20s always make me think of flapper hair and their cute little bobs. This hairstyle is perfect for a flapper-inspired New Year's Eve party (I might do a fancier tutorial for this style with NYE in mind), but it also works just thrown together for the day for a bit of fun with a knit cap on top. emmy-20-side

  1. The bob looks so good on you! It'd actually be a nice permanent change! ❤️✨

    1. Thanks! I did have a bob for many years (peek in my archives) so I'm trying to enjoy long hair for a bit :)

  2. That's funny, I've had a bob for most of my life, and I have to say it gets old pretty fast, at least for me! Anyway, it looks cute on you and you've inspired me to finally grow my hair a little longer :)

  3. This hairstyle looks great on you!

    I had a bob for many years until I finally grew my hair. I now go back and forth between the two, growing out my bob for a few year then chopping it off again.
