Freida Pinto hairstyle inspiration: 5 ways to style a long bob

Actress, activist and L'Oréal Paris ambassador Freida Pinto is one of Hollywood's most stylish ladies, always catching our eye whenever she steps out onto the red carpet. And we've been paying extra attention since she cut her glossy brunette locks into an on-trend long bob a little over a year ago.

If, life us, you think a short cut = limited styling options, think again! Freida proves that this season's hottest hairstyle is more versatile than most! So if you're considering the cut, have a look through our Freida-inspired long bob inspiration gallery...

XXL Waves

Channel red carpet glamour without going over the top: XXL waves give your hair instant body and volume without being high-maintenance. To get the look, dry your hair and then spritz it with a heat-protecting volume spray before using a large barrel curling iron to create loose waves. Tuck one side behind your ear and you're all set!

Smooth & Sleek

Low-key but nevertheless lovely, smooth and sleek hair provides the perfect opportunity to show off just how gorgeously glossy your locks are! Distribute a straightening balm that fights frizz through your hair post-wash, then use a round brush to dry your hair as smooth as possible.

Hollywood Curls

If you're a fan of retro style, try vintage Hollywood curls! Freida's version accommodates short hair perfectly! Achieve the look by creating uniform curls that begin around ear-length from one side to the other using a small curling iron. After taking the hair off the iron, use your fingers to curl it back up and secure with a bobby pin until its cool. Once all of your curls are cooled, spritz them heavily with an oil-infused hairspray and then let them down for an expertly scultpted look.

Beach Waves

What's more fun than just-got-back-from-the-seaside texture? Spritz damp hair with texturizing spray and then twist and scrunch as it dries to encourage natural texture.

Elegant Updo

When in need of an updo, copy Freida's! This easy, elegant chignon works on any hair length. To get it, simply massage volume mousse into your roots before combing it down to the ends. Rough dry your hair and then smooth it to the back of your head before twisting and shaping it into a small bun. Secure with bobby pins to finish the look!

So, which look will you be trying?
