Short bob hairstyles always make for an eye-catching look, and when styled with a deep side part, they're guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. If you're thinking about trying this haircut yourself, or just want to know a bit more about styling it if you already have one, we have a few styling tips to share.

The length and overall simplicity of this hairstyle mean that you won't have to spend much time at all to get it looking just right!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream
Tail comb
Flat iron (depending on hair texture)
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray

Step one: Towel dry your hair and apply Frizz Vanisher Cream throughout.

Step two: Blow-dry, using a brush to guide the hair. Point the airflow downwards to promote a smooth, straight finish.

Step three: Take a tail comb and part your hair to one side then comb the hair all the way through to fix the part.

Step four: Run a flat iron over any especially unruly sections of hair for a uniformly smooth finish.

Step five: Mist all over with Fine Control Hairspray to keep your hair looking ship shape all day long, and you're done!

To give this hairstyle an edgier finish, why not try a faux hawk? All you have to do is pin the "smaller" side of your hair flat, securing at the very back of your head so hair from the other side covers the pins.

Happy styling!
