So, you’ve gone and done it, haven’t you? You’ve taken the leap and chopped your locks into that sassy bob you’ve been eyeing for ages. But let’s be real here, rocking a bob is a whole new world of styling to navigate, especially if you’re diving headfirst into the messy bob trend.
Smooth and sleek? Nah, that’s so yesterday. These days, it’s all about embracing the chaos, the bedhead vibes, the “I woke up like this” charm. But let’s not kid ourselves; achieving that perfectly imperfect look takes more than just rolling out of bed.
Fear not, my fellow messy-haired mavens! We’ve got the lowdown on five absolute must-have products to help you slay that messy bob.
Adding volume and grit, a texturizing spray is your go-to for that effortlessly tousled look. Spritz it liberally over dry or slightly damp hair, focusing on the roots and mid-lengths. Then, get handsy (literally) and scrunch, tousle, and zhuzh until you’ve got that effortlessly tousled vibe down pat. Pro tip: it’s also a lifesaver for rescuing limp locks on day two (or three) post-wash.
Beyond banishing excess oil, dry shampoo is a game-changer for texture and volume. Spray onto roots and oily areas, let it sit for a couple of minutes, massage it in, and watch as your hair gains newfound life and bounce. Grab a comb or use your fingers to tousle and lift your hair at the roots, achieving the desired volume and texture.
For those craving a taste of seaside sass, look no further than the trusty sea salt spray. Whether your hair is damp or dry, a few spritzes of sea salt spray will give you that effortlessly windswept look you’ve been lusting after. Just shake, spray, and tousle for instant beach babe vibes. It’s like a day at the beach, minus the sand.
Okay, so maybe you’re not a blowout pro, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fake it ’til you make it. Grab yourself a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment and get ready to amp up the volume. Just scrunch away while drying on a low heat setting, and watch as your natural waves and texture come to life. Perfect for styling curls without the frizz and puff!
Who says messy can’t be glam? Give your bob some extra oomph with a few strategically placed waves or curls. Wrap small sections of hair around your curling wand or iron, leaving the ends free for that effortlessly undone look. Then tousle with your fingers and seal the deal with a spritz of light-hold hairspray.
Ready to embrace the chaos? Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a newbie to the bob brigade, these essentials are sure to become your new best friends. Give them a whirl and watch as your tousled bob becomes the envy of effortlessly chic enthusiasts everywhere.Featured images via @yukistylist, @styled_by_carolynn
