If you have somewhere fancy to be and you don't know what to do with your hair, anything vintage is a great option. If you have a bob - regular or long - we suggest you try this 1940s inspired curly style to help inject some old school glamor into our look!

1/ How to style it

Step 1
Starting with damp hair, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout. Blow-dry your hair with the concentrator attachment, using a paddle brush to keep it straight.

Step 2
Once dried, use a tail comb to part your hair deep on your favorite side. Trace the line, then comb the hair through on either side to fix it.

Step 3
Use a medium-sized curling iron or wand to curl your hair. You should only curl up as far as the middle of your ear, keeping the top straight and smooth. When each curl comes off the iron, clip it up to cool as this will help the waves to last longer.

Step 4
Once all of your hair has been curled and cooled, unclip it, then gently brush it all through. A boar bristle brush is great for this if you have one.

Step 5
Give your vintage bob plenty of staying power by misting it all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. To tame any flyaways on top, spray some more onto the palm of your hand then smooth it firmly over the unwanted wisps to tack them down.
