Rodarte Fall 2012 Show. Hair by Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris. Hairstyle: Modern Faux Bob.
How to get a Modern Faux Bob hairdo
Prep with Kérastase Nectar Thermique to protect hair from the harmful effects of heat styling tools and provide optimal shine
Use Kérastase Mousse Volumactive all over for texture and volume
Take a small section of hair at the nape of the neck, and split in half to create two small braids
Wrap the braids around each other and pin so they lie flat against the back of the head and stay covered underneath the remaining lengths
Curl hair in layers with varying curling irons – use a wave iron at the bottom layer for texture and then a large barrel curling iron on the top sections
For the top layer, curl hair with a 1-inch barrel curling iron, curling it in a upside down direction to create a subtle kink
Tuck the lengths under and pin to the braids to create a faux bob (pinning lengths to the braids creates a strong base so the hair doesn’t slip)
Lightly rough up the right side of the faux bob with fingers for added texture and finish with Kérastase Double Force Hair Spray for a matte yet polished look
For added sparkle, accessorize the style with rows of gold hair pins or star hair pieces
