Faux Bob Hairstyle For Long Hair Photo Tutorial

Dec 22, 2011 by

First up today an update on the Bunny store. Unfortunately I’ve had to push the launch back a while as currently the shipping quotes I’ve gotten are quite high. Aus Post have quoted $11.55 for non-registered overseas airmail which I think is quite high when you add that to the cost of the little Bergamots. So I’m looking at other options and possibly having them made somewhere else and shipped there to keep the costs down. I’m not sure at the moment but I’m still working on it and looking into other options because I don’t think there’s much point putting them up if most of you guys can’t afford them *_* So short story is that the launch will be pushed back into the new year but will still be happening! Let me know if you have any suggestions.

In the mean time here’s a hair tutorial.

Ages ago I did a little video tutorial on making a faux bob hair style for long hair, I promised a follow up photo version and here it is!

    This is fantastic! I want to try this using Goody’s Spin Pins, I’ve found that they are better at getting pins closer to the scalp. Such a cute look!

      I haven’t seen those over here yet but I’ve heard so much about them, I think I need to look into making my own XD Thanks so much for commenting Mary!

    How is your hair so puffy?! it’s like cotton candy ^^ mine is dead straight and limp~

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      XD You say puffy I say frizzy lololol! Maybe try a big style volumiser?

    Oh my, when I saw the first pic I was like: OMGNOOOOO, she had her hair cut, oh wait what? No pink, no nothing… She definately wouldn’t do THAT! :D
    And so I scrolled down. But you look so so so cute in that first pic! ^^

      LOL!! Don’t worry I would never cut my hair, especially not the pink :D I’m glad you liked it!

    I’ve been wanting to try this! My hair is layered though so it doesn’t really work out as well. It is almost long enough now though!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      I wonder if the layering would help the style even? Like if you have shorter layers on the top it might even look more natural! Heehee I’ll cross my fingers your hair grows faster!

    it’d be awesome if you made a bunny kit- with the pieces cut out etc and instructions to make it. that way you could ship it flat in a regular envelope AND we could put it together ourselves.

      Oooh that is a genius idea Jeanie!! I’ve been wanting to sell a pattern but a kit would be even more awesome! You are a genius!!!

  • aoife

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

    I love this!! Found it via your pinterest… I’ve been wanting as shorter cut for a while, but this looks like a good compromise ;)

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      :D Yay for pinterest! And yay for experimenting with your hair, I could totally see you with a cute little bob!

    OMG! I love love LOVE your style and creativity! I’m just a little american teenage girl looking to find new ways to do my mess of hair each day, and I found a hairstyle of yours that I really liked on latest-hairstyles.com! And I was like “Hmmm, how very interesting” and so I checked to see if your website was available (I only have a school issued computer and they feel the need to block just about every website known to man!) and I was able to get on yours!! And I did a little happy dance lol so sorry for the super long comment, but just wanted to say how awesome you are!! :)
