Short hair swept the Emmys last night! Anyone notice the trend? When speaking to my blogger friends last week, many of them predicted lobs on the red carpet, but what was interesting was the way they were styled. January Jones and Christina Hendrix sported old-Hollywood waves, while Elizabeth Moss, Lena Dunham and Michelle Dockery opted for straight, sleek strands. But it was Claire Danes, who had everyone talking thanks to her faux bob. Have long hair, but want to rock the trend? Here's how: To elongate her neck and show off her Armani Prive gown, Claire's stylist, Peter Butler decided to go for a short faux bob. First, he applied mousse to her damp hair to help add texture and blow dried. Next, he gave her a low side part and used a large-barreled curling iron to curl her hair inward, which also helped to smooth out her hair’s texture. Then, created two small pin curls at the nape of her neck and combed the top of her hair down and under, pinning as needed into the base. To finish her look, he tucked the hair on the left side of Claire's head behind her ear and spritzing Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray for hold.
Here's a video I created about how to get the faux bob look, in case you're still a bit confused. It's easier than you think!
