Make sure your bob parties in style!
Styling your hair is a huge part of the "getting ready" ritual before a night out. Whether you get dolled up with your friends or on your own, your hair is quite literally your crowning glory, however great your outfit looks. As such, it's an important part of making sure you look and feel your best, whatever your hair length.

With shorter cuts like a bob, it may seem like little to no effort is required but, sometimes, a little extra work is required.

How to style

For a party, your hairstyle should look like the best version of itself. After all, you probably want to remain recognizable to the people you're going out with (same goes for makeup, FYI). This means playing to your strengths - AKA your hair's natural state - by using products and styling tools to basically do the equivalent of Photoshop on your locks.

Start with a simple blow-dry. Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly from roots to ends first and use a round brush to guide the hair straight. You can go for a perfectly straight look or curve the ends of your hair like the girl in the photo. Alternatively, try a more textured look with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray instead.

Next up, you need to part your hair. Where you decide to do so can change your entire look so don't hesitate to play around with it a little in order to find your best side. For a sharp, geometric feel, go straight down the middle.

Finally, tame any unwanted flyaways and create a perfectly polished finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.

Happy styling!
