Classic curly bob with side part

One of the biggest advantages of having a curly bob is the fact that it requires minimum styling. For something a little different, why not try a windswept side-part?

To gain maximum impact with this look, don’t forget to give your curls a little extra TLC to define them. Try using the TRESemmé Botanique Air Dry Curl Cream to get soft, nourished and amazing looking curls.

Just start above one of your ears and create a French plait across the top of your head, and when you get to the other side, hide the end behind your ear and pin it in place.
