Did you browse through your mother’s old photo albums one lazy afternoon to pass time? If you did, you may have seen how different fashion and beauty trends were at that time. One trend is making a comeback though: the flipped-out short bob. Yes, that’s right. This hairstyle that was popular back in the 1960s is saying hello once again. Fans of this ‘do can once again enjoy it, and those who weren’t born yet when the flipped-out short bob was hot can try it. Just follow these instructions to create this vintage hairstyle.
Create a flipped-out short bob in 7 easy steps
Wash your hair
Keep your hair from looking flat and limp by washing it with DOVE Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo. It can help boost your hair’s natural volume by up to 95 percent. Afterwards, use TRESemmé Detox and Nourish Conditioner to give your hair the nutrients it needs to stay beautiful and healthy.
Part on the side
Use a tail comb to create a straight, side part. Make sure that your hair part is well-defined.
Divide your hair into two vertical sections. Clip one section as you work on the other one.
Put a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your palms and apply it evenly from mid-length up to the tips of your hair. The mousse will give your hair body. Distribute the product evenly throughout your hair.
Dry your hair
Get a round brush. Then, blow dry your hair while you brush it and roll the ends outwards. Repeat until all the sections of your hair have been styled this way.
Make it last
Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your hair to help make your hairstyle last long. Spray it on the flipped out ends and use your index finger and thumb to define the shape.
If you’re looking for new ways on how to wear your hair, this hairstyle is the answer. The flipped-out short bob is not just for themed parties. You can sport this classic ‘do at work, too. You can even enhance this hairstyle by wearing a colorful headband or trendy hairclips.
