With plenty of holidays and special events at every turn, now is the perfect time to keep a few go-to hairstyles in your arsenal. Looking for a new style? Why not fake it with a hybrid textured faux bob? “Most with mid to long-length hair can rock this look of mingling movements because it works for any texture, shags that are evolving and is great for those looking for a non-traditional up style.  Plus, it’s really easy to do!” explains Teresa Romano, Creative Director for Sam Villa.

Creating a mix of curls, waves, and smooth pieces by alternating hot tools creates a hybrid texture that brings a fresh edge to any event.

How to Style a Textured Faux Bob

  1. Create a strong foundation by blow-drying hair with a Sam Villa Artist Series Professional Blow Dryer and Redken Big Blow Out. 
  2. Start at the scalp with a 3” wide X 1” deep section, spray with hairspray and use a Sam Villa Signature Series Pro Results Single-Waver to create a wave. Repeat down the section.
  3. Take the next section, spray with hairspray, and while holding a Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron and Wand vertically, wrap hair around in a spiral shape.
  4. Continue working on sections and alternating irons and techniques, making sure to allow curls and waves to cool. 
  5. Gather hair in the back into a low ponytail and fasten an elastic to the end.  Roll it up to rest in the nape of the neck and secure with hair pins.
  6. Gently pull and shape the remaining hair into place and finish with Redken Control Addict 28 for hold.
