Video hairstyle tutorial: short swept back bob

/ 06.16.2015

If you have a bob haircut and are looking for new ways to wear it, we have the perfect hairstyle for you! The short swept back look featured in the video above has all the volume of a retro beehive, combined with the piecey texture that has become one of this season's biggest trends. To recreate this style on your own hair, all you need to do is hit the play button!

How to style it

Step 1

Spray Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray through the top sections of your hair.

Step 2

Curl large pieces of hair to add volume and movement. Use a 1" curling iron for big curls. Repeat this step, working from your hairline toward the crown of your head.

Step 3

After curling the top sections of hair, use a fine-tooth comb to tease the roots. This will create some extra height, giving you a voluminous look that lasts.

Step 4

Gently brush out the curls, sweeping the hair back off your face as you do so.

Step 5

Warm some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT 02 Hyper Fix Putty between your palms to emulsify it. This will make it really easy to apply.

Step 6

Apply it all over to create a subtly textured, piecey finish. Scrunch the hair here and there to add more texture and volume.

Step 7

Put your headband on, securing it tightly behind your hairline, then finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for lasting hold.
