If you have a medium or long sized bob you should try this super simple feminine and elegant hairdo.

A rotating hot air styling brush will help you with this style, as you just need to turn the tips. The best way to make the hair style last, is to use the rotating brush on clean damp hair. While the brush is rotating, roll the lower half of a hair strand onto it’s barrel Making sure the brush is on the outside, as the tips should be oriented outwards, not inwards. Do the same with the rest of your hair, until you have a chic hairdo with the tips curled up.

Next, with the help of some hair pins, grab the front hair strands, one at a time, and secure them in the back. Don’t tighten them too much around your head though, leaving them a bit loose, for an easy going look.

To lock the hair style, use a high-quality hair finishing spray that still leaves a natural look. A great spray would be the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Finishing Spray.

For this hair style large rollers will help a lot as they will add volume to your hair, but a rotating hair brush will do as well if you have the patience to roll one thin strain at a time. Once you are done with the curls, a comb with rare dents will help you loosen and break the curls without ruining their shape.

You will have to take the front end of the hair and brush it forward above your eyes. Take the ends and roll them inward to create a tube that will end up above your forehead. Use hair pins to secure it.

With the rest of the hair, put up a ponytail on top of your head, as high as possible. Tease the hair at the base of the ponytail for extra volume and use a finishing spray to smoothen and lock it down.

5. Pump up the volume


Hair raising volume boost

To achieve this hair style, you will need to give your hair a good blow-dry, especially near the roots.

Before starting the blow-dry, use a product for maximising the volume of your hair. Such a product would be Sexy Hair Big Spray & Play Harder Firm Volumizing Hairspray.

Use a round hair brush and start to blow-dry near the scalp first, taking one hair strand at a time. Start from the lower part, while the rest of the hair is pinned up, and work your way to the top. When blow-drying each hair strand, keep the round brush rolled on the inside at the roots, and then take it out and turn the tips on it on the outside. For a retro look, you need to have the tips pointing out. For even more volume, tease the hair that is on top of your head. Then just gently comb it towards the back, to make it look tidy, without damaging the tease you did. A finishing spray will make it look outstanding.
