has been a huge hit on the catwalks, high street and red carpets for a few seasons now. Until now worn only on long hair, it looks great on braided, curly and straight styles. For summer 2013, short hair is getting its own back with side styles also making their way into short cuts. Casual chic effect guaranteed. How to create a side hair style on a bob.
The technique is the same as it is for long hair. The only difference is the end result: short hair doesn't fall over the shoulder. But the hairstyle sacrifices none of its glamour.
Start by creating a side parting
then bring your hair over to the opposite side of the parting. To maximise the effect, slick your hair down with bobby pins on the side your hair is parted.
Once your hair is to one side, it's time to give it some movement. You might have decided to straighten it, but the best thing to optimise this sort of style is to give your hair volume. We recommend blow-drying your hair or creating a wavy effect.
You can choose to style the roots like the rest of your hair or leave it straight. If you decide to go for a blow dry
, do it using a round brush. If you opt for the wavy effect, wide-barrelled curling tongs will help you create chunky, bouncy curls. For the final touch, style your hair using your fingers and a styling wax
in order to achieve your desired result. © Pixelformula/Mugler prêt-à-porter show, Spring-Summer 2013 © Jean Louis David
