Bed head bob

Bob haircuts have been trending for a while now and that's not going to change in 2015! This isn't exactly hard to understand when you consider how versatile short and longer bobs can be - they look great with every texture and look good on everyone.

The messy, bed head take on the look featured in the photo opposite is an edgy, modern way to wear a bob - at any length - and if you'd like to try it, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry hair, spray Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray all over, focusing on the lower layers - i.e. the hair closest to your neck.

Step 2
Ruffle and muss the hair with your hands, then tease the lower layers with a comb to add volume if you feel you need it. If you have especially thick hair, you may be able to skip this step altogether.

Step 3
Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands, then scrunch it into the lengths of your hair. Twist and tousle individual sections to create a subtle pieceiness and add texture.

Step 4
When you're satisfied with the overall finish, spray your bob with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to give it long-lasting hold and keep unwanted frizz at bay.
