    Section off a layer of hair in the nape and pin the rest of hair up with a Double Clip Petite.

    Back-brush the hair closest to the nape of the neck. Roll and firmly secure the section with bobby pins to the back of the neck. This creates the volume and base for the faux bob.

    Brush through the hair with the Divine Boar Bristle Brush to smooth out and gather all loose hairs at the back of the head. Tie hair with an elastic band in a low, loose ponytail.

    Roll and tuck the ponytail under at the base of the neck. Using bobby pins, secure it at the desired bob length into the base that you previously created in Step 3.

    Pull out some loose hair pieces from around the fringe, face and bob. Use the small ProThermal Brush with a blow dryer to create soft curls in loose hair strands.
