Two television stars, two white dresses, two pink pouts, one very cool haircut. Gretchen Mol and Sarah Paulson both hit the red carpet of the SAG Awards on January 18 with a blonde bob, styled in two very different ways! Get them both!
Make the cut
Bob hairstyles are all the rage at the moment and we've been spotting them regularly on the red carpet. In the last year or so, this hairstyle has more or less solidified itself as the style of cool girls everywhere. Thinking of trying it out?
It's important to keep in mind that short hair does not mean less effort! You'll need to visit the salon regularly to maintain this style, but luckily for you, your stylist will be trimming away those pesky split ends! Another plus? Short hair takes less time to dry and style, so don't hesitate to hit that snooze button one more time.
A common argument against the bob is that it isn't as versatile as long hair. It's true that you probably won't be able to pull off an elaborate braided crown , but you can still switch up your look, as Sarah Paulson and Gretchen Mol have shown us! Wondering how to get these looks?
Gretchen's vintage style curls
Step one: Towel dry your hair and apply curl mousse evenly throughout.
Step two: Either blowdry your hair with a diffuser or allow it to dry naturally. Then, use a tail comb to create a side part.
Step three: Use a curling iron with medium barrel to create soft curls. Use your fingers to gently loosen up the curls.
Step four: Finally, use a strong-hold hairspray. Using your fingers, hold the side section back and spray. Then run your fingers through your bangs, back and to the side, while spraying. All set!
Sarah's blunt, modern bob
Step one: For this look, start by applying smoothing serum throughout damp hair, using a comb to ensure that it's evenly distributed.
Step two: Spritz heat protection all over your hair, then use a barrel brush and your blowdryer to dry the hair straight. Randomly curl small sections of hair outward a bit at the ends.
Step three: Using a tail comb to create a center part. Give the hair a tiny spritz of hair oil to smooth it out and boost shine. Finished!
