If you're wondering how to create this style yourself, check out our simple hairstyle tutorial below...

What is a faux bob?

You don't have a real bob? Fake it! Using a curling iron, bobby pins and hairspray, try out a short hairstyle without going anywhere near the scissors.

1920s style

The 1920s were all about waves and short hairstyles. From finger waves to cropped curls, women loved daring, standout styles inspired by Hollywood stars such as Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford and of course the Flapper girls that influenced both hairstyle and fashion trends.

Get the Look!

You will need: A wide-tooth comb, tail comb, heat protectant, curling iron, hairspray, styling mousse, hairbrush, bobby pins.

Step one

Detangle damp hair using a wide-tooth comb and apply some styling mousse depending on the type and length of your hair.

Step two

Apply heat protectant, then blowdry your hair.

Step three

Curl 1-2" sections of your hair, starting from 3" away from your scalp. Use the tail comb to create a deep side part, then flick your hair over and lightly backcomb the roots at the part.

Step four

Take the hair at the side of your face (the hairline) and pin underneath the rest of the hair on each side.

Step five

"Fold" or curl the hair inwards on itself gently, using bobby pins to secure underneath. Aim for ear/chin length.

Step six

Spray with hairspray, focusing on underneath to give the style structure and firm hold.
