Faux Bob Hairstyle For Long Hair

Hair Styles From Long To Short

1. The Short Bob

This fashion season, bobs and lobs are just about everywhere! You can easily adorn it as one of the simplest short hairstyles for long hair! There are different ways in which you can do it. One easiest way is to divide the hair mid part into two sections and make a loose braid of both and tie them with a transparent band. Now tug each braid down to loosen the hair on top. In the next step, start rolling the braid of one side and then fold it inside and secure it at the back with bobby pins. The loose hair will spread with the braids well hidden and give the appearance of a bob cut. Repeat the same with the other side and ensure that the back does not remain divided but gives a smooth folded appearance. Using tongs, curl all loose strands inside for a clean look. If you have fringes, you can curl them outside. Finally, add some spray to keep the hair in place. You would be looking super cute in this false short hair! The look would be sensational. You can also achieve the look with a ponytail. Check out the below video and learn how to do it like a pro in no time!
