Hair Basics: Styling A Bob
Learn how to score a sleek, sexy bob!
Bobs are a versatile and flattering short hair cut. And with the right hair styling tips, you can get your bob cut looking sleek and stylish -- and as good as any celebrity's.
Hair stylist Danielle Caputo shares easy tips about the best way to tame the puff and bring out your cut.
Use a fine tooth comb to separate out a vertical section of hair. Spritz it with a heat protecting spray to hold the style and help make hair shinier.
Go over the section of hair with a flat iron, combing through the section with a comb as you apply the heat.
TIP: Opt for a heat-resistant comb, so it does not melt under the heat of the flat iron.
Use this method with the rest of the hair, dividing it into sections and smoothing with a flattening iron, using a comb to straighten and separate strands.
Now, you have a nice sleek bob. But for an edgier, more piece-y look, Caputo suggests applying a little bit of styling wax the the ends of the hair.
Apply a flat iron to the tip of the hair where you've used styling wax, to create extra texture.
Work a little wax through the end of the bangs, and go over the area with a straightening iron.
Now, you have a sleek, stylish bob - in no time!
