That'’s one sexy ponytail Carrie Underwood!! Or is it a faux bob? Either way, it'’s a fresh take on a classic.

How To Create a Faux Bob

  • To create volume at the crown, isolate hair in the crown and nape area, pin and set aside
  • Then, starting 1-2” away from the hairline, take vertical slices of hair, hold straight out from the head and spray with Redken iron shape 11 to protect from heat and hold texture
  • At the base of the slice, compress hair with the Sam Villa Signature Series TEXTUR texturizing iron (tip of the iron pointing upwards) to imprint texture
  • Work vertically around the head until finished
  • Drop crown and nape sections down to hide created texture
  • The volume at the base will create beautiful natural fullness in fine hair
  • Then, gather into a low loose ponytail, secure with elastic and gently pull hair out above the top of the elastic for a faux bob look.
