It's been painfully hot here this past week. Every time the weather gets this way I get the urge to chop off all my hair and call it a day. But then again even when the weather is just fine I still get short hair envy. My Pinterest is chock full of pixie cuts and wavy bobs.
I feel like most girls do this, you cut your hair. Feel light and free, then the next day the shock and panic sets in as you realise: "Oh my gosh! my hair!!!"
If you're like me and you get short hair envy too but aren't ready for the commitment. Or if you just want to road test the look before actually getting it all shopped off, here's how to fake a bob and get the look without the scissors.
This look works better with curly/wavy hair but in this heat, I just couldn't be bothered. Also, it is possible to do this without sectioning your hair. If you have thin hair, you can braid it all into one low braid. My hair is too thick for that which is why I sectioned it off. And I feel the top layer helps to hide the braid and gives the bob more movement, making it more realistic. Also, you see me fidgeting a lot with it at the end, that's me trying to pull out the shorter strands (for more movement and to frame my face) without ruining the bits I had already pinned back.
You can also find me on Twitter and Instagram @jackkayephoto. If you try this out take a photo and tag me I'd love to see it, don't forget to use #TheSundayProject!
