Many of you will be thinking about getting a new haircut for the new year. What if you could get a new shorter look, without committing to chopping off your beautiful long hair ? The following tutorial shows how to get a sophisticated bob look in a few simple steps.

Faking it

There are two different ways to get this on-trend look, so experiment with both to see which style you prefer. Before you start, brush out the hair to ensure there are no knots or tangles which will spoil the neat look of the finished bob. Once you've done this choose one of the following methods below.

Method one

Section your hair into an upper and lower half. With the lower half, roll the hair into a small neat miniature bun which you then need to secure using around five bobby pins. This creates a small bun which should lie quite flat against the lower part of your head. Next, tie the top section of the hair into a low-slung ponytail. Slide the hair tie down the ponytail and turn this in on itself, bringing it under towards the small bun, which fans the hair out into a bob shape. You need to clip the ponytail ends around the bun to secure your bob.

Method two

Divide you hair into four sections (two at the front and two at the back), and then roll each section up fairly tightly towards the nape of the neck. Secure each roll with bobby pins to hold the style. Once you feel that your version of the clip-up technique is secured, you can tease out shorter sections of your hair from the top to give it a more natural look.

Say hello to the new you!
