Whenever we find ourselves lacking in hairstyle inspiration, British fashionista Alexa Chung is our go-to girl. The model, who has stayed loyal to her mid-length cut for years, recently got a bob! Of course, she kept her signature messy texture, creating a look that was one hundred per cent her! If you're looking for a brand new look for the new year then get inspired!
Alexa rocks the bob
The bob has won itself a cult celebrity following over the last few months, with the likes of Freida Pinto and Kate Bosworth championing the short and chic cut. Given Alexa's trendsetter status, we wouldn't be surprised if the look becomes more popular than ever now! Alexa opted for a blunt finish which, together with her classic center part and relaxed wavy finish, creates a relaxed yet fashion-forward look.
Steal Alexa's look
Ask your stylist to cut the hair fairly straight, so that it falls naturally above the shoulders.
When styling your brand new cut, try and work up as much body as possible! To do so, start by washing and conditioning your hair with products from L'Oréal Paris' Fibralogy range, then work a couple of drops of hair oil throughout the lengths of your hair.
Spritz a heat protect spray over your lcoks, then blow-dry your hair, scrunching it as you go. Next, use a curling iron to curl the bottom half of your hair, working section by section. Once you're done, run your fingers through your locks to break up the curl.
Use a comb to create a center part then mist some matte texture spray over your hair. Use your hands to mess up the lengths of your hair and create a disheveled effect. Finish with a little hairspray and you're all set.
So, will you be trying this daring new short cut?
