Faux Bob Hairstyle For Long Hair Photo Tutorial
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!
Here’s the video version too incase you missed it…You need:
Brush out and separate your hair into two sections.
Tie them with the hair bands around half way down.
Pull each ponytail backwards so the hair slips through a bit. This will make the front parts in the end result longer in the front than the back.
Curl the ends of the ponytail into a little loop.
Keep rolling upwards until you can’t go any further and you should have something like this:
From the side it will bow out and form a nice finish underneath.
From the front it looks like a curl.
So now you need to pin it in place. You should try to pin through the hair band to give it extra strength. Make sure you’re pinning it as close to the scalp as possible.
Repeat on the other side too.
Now you need to take care of the back, right now it looks terrible.
Take your brush and gently coax the divide together so it hides the gap. You can use your fingers and a few extra bobby pins at the bottom to keep it all in place.
This version isn’t so great but you can get the general idea…
Now you just need to style your fringe and any layers around your face. The style works better with layers around the face because they create an illusion of being the ends of the hair.
Short hair without a major chop :D
Hope this was helpful, let me know if you have any questions!
