When you think of rock & roll hairstyles, it probably doesn't take too long before Joan Jett's choppy bob or Debbie Harry's volumized crop spring to mind. With their unkempt textures and almost radically short lengths, this kind of look is one that everyone should test drive at least once in their lives and.

A lot of volume, and piecey, choppy textures are mercifully easy to achieve with the right products and styling techniques. Keep reading to find out how.

A lot of hot air...

Styling an XXL bob like this actually doesn't take very long at all, leaving you with more time to choose the right outfit to go with it!

Step one: Apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out Heatspray evenly throughout before drying. Use a large-barrel brush to guide the hair, curving it in towards your neck at the very ends.

Step two: Once everything is totally dry, use your hands to define a rough center or slightly off-center part. Don't worry about making everything look super straight as this look is all about relaxed, messy cool.

Step three: Apply a little Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to the roots. Take a fine-tooth comb and gently tease hair to add extra lift. Don't go too crazy with the teasing, however, as you want your hair to retain some sense of control.

Step four: Use your hands to smooth your hair over after it's been teased and twist a few sections for a more tousled look. Fix with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!

Sometimes, an effortless-looking hairstyle really is effortless!
