Step-by-step: Up do for bob-length hair


You don’t have to have long hair to wear it up. Here's my step-by-step guide for putting up bob length hair.

This braided at the back technique is ideal for bob length hair and the total look is a great party hairstyle. The vibe is relaxed and casual: it looks undone and effortless but at the same time glamorous.

This is a failsafe technique that even works on days when your hair is not cooperating.

Step 1: Prep the hair dry using Collinge & Co Blow Dry Lotion which helps create volume.

Step 2: Use Collinge & Co Invisible Dry Shampoo to add texture.

Step 3: Braid Bob length hair from the nape to the crown.

Step 4: Continue to braid to the very ends of the hair allowing some it to spike out, secure and wrap the braid into a top knot.

Step 5: Working on a centre parting, backcomb each side section at the roots, smooth the hair and sweep it back and up towards the crown and secure with a hair grip or accessory.

Step 6: Use hair spray to hold the style in place.

Step 8: As an alternative look, tuck some hair behind the ears and allow some soft tendrils to fall.
