L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Freida Pinto is the latest famous head to jump aboard the wavy bob bandwagon and we just can't get enough of her new look! Thick, glossy and full of movement, it's the stuff hairstyle dreams are made of.

The cut

With the ends in front left a tiny bit longer than the rest, Freida's bob is a graduated cut, albeit a subtle one. Combined with a middle part and a few barely noticeable layers, this allows her waves plenty of room to move while framing her face beautifully.

The style

Bobs and tousled waves are like peas in a pod, so mastering the styling technique is essential for anyone considering or already in possession of a bob of their own.

1/ How to do it

Step 1
Spray Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout dry or damp hair.

Step 2
Take a large piece and twist it, then blow-dry the twist while holding onto the ends. Repeat this step on the rest of your hair.

Top tip - When working on the hair next to your face, twist it outward to create the prettiest frame.

Step 3
Shake your fingers through your locks to break them into loose waves.

Step 4
Scrunch a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends to add more texture, then finish with a veil of hairspray.

What do you think? Can you see yourself with a wavy bob à la Freida Pinto?
