Got a bob? You may be stumped with ideas on how to style it. A simple blowout is fine, but if you want to make your hair look more exciting, play with texture. Why don’t you try a messy-chic look? Read on to learn how to style a messy layered bob.
7 Steps to Create a Messy Layered Bob
Wash your hair
Protect from heat
Spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair to protect your strands from heated styling tools. This will keep your hair from getting damaged.
Make your hair look fuller by applying TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse. Distribute the product evenly on your hair.
Dry your hair
Brush your hair while blow-drying to help activate the volumizing agents in the mousse.
Curl your hair
It’s time to create soft, loose waves! Take a small section of hair and wrap it around a curling iron. Then, roll the curling iron outwards. Repeat this step until all sections of your hair have been curled.
Show it off!
Go out on a fine day and flaunt your hairstyle. With a messy layered bob, you can easily add oomph to a casual, everyday outfit. It also suits an edgy, rocker-chic look, so feel free to create this ‘do if this is your personal style. If you’re more of the dainty type, you can also wear a messy layered bob along with your flowy dresses.
