  • Step 3: Gather your hair at the nape of your neck, slightly twisting it up and under and pinning.

The Faux Bob: How to Get Shorter Hair With No Commitment

The holiday season is that one time of year that you jump from party to party looking your most festive yet. To make sure you’re at your all-time best, we’ve pulled together a Week of Holiday Hair, with hair tutorials from a celebrity stylist just for you. This way, you’ll have a style for every type of party on your calendar – and you’ll look great no matter what. 

It seems like every time we go on Pinterest, our feed is flooded with gorgeous pictures of bob haircuts. Of course we pin these to a “Hairstyle Ideas” board, but the thought of actually chopping our long locks in favor of a short hairstyle is a little intimidating. Thankfully, the faux bob came into our lives, so we can have the best of both worlds with a short hairstyle and no commitment.

For an expert’s advice on how to style a faux bob, we turned to hairstylist Josue Perez. Above, he explains exactly how to get this faux bob look that’s perfect for the holiday party season!
