Soft, tousled bob hairstyle

Messy bobs are so on trend that you would be forgiven for thinking they were the only short hairstyle in existence right now. They're super popular, not least because they look good on everyone, so if you're planning to get one, you should know how to style it!

We love this soft, textured style with bangs. It has a pretty, bohemian aspect to it and it's really easy to take care of. It's also a total breeze when it comes to styling... so why not give it a try?

Get the look

Step 1
After towel drying your hair, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Use a wide-tooth comb to get good coverage - the spray doubles as a heat protectant for the next step.

Step 2
Twist a large piece of hair and blow-dry it while holding onto the ends. Repeat this process all the way around your head to set your hair into loose, tousled waves.

Step 3
Once dried, shake your fingers through your hair to break up the twists then ruffle it all to soften the look.

Step 4
Scrunch a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends to add texture. Then, with a really small amount on your fingertips, muss the top of your bob and your bangs.

Step 5
Complete the look with a veil of hairspray for long-lasting hold, ruffle your hair once more, and you're done!

What do you think? Will you try a messy bob hairstyle like this one?
