DIY This Faux Bob for a Modern Marilyn Revival

Okay, ladies: It’s time to channel your inner cool girl and throwback style icon Marilyn Monroe. This hair hack is enough to satisfy both your trendy and classic sides. Sexy, modern and super easy to DIY, this breezy bob-meets-lob is an ideal way to update your look as we transition into fall. Get ready to slay from every angle, queen!

STEP 1: CREATE A SIDE PART + ADD TEXTURE

First, create a deep side part in your hair with a comb. After that, spritz your hair with a texturizing spray to give it some grit.

STEP 2: GRAB A PIN AND TWIST

The real trick to this ‘do is pinning up your hair to create the shorter length of the bob-meets-lob. Be sure to keep the wavy side of your bobby pin against your scalp and begin twisting the hair upward, toward your part. Anchor your bobby pin by placing it horizontally through about an inch of hair.

STEP 3: PIN IT UP

Once you’ve rolled up your hair and reached the desired length of your faux bob, set your bobby pin by securing it horizontally against your scalp. Let the ends of your faux bob skim your neck for that modern Marilyn Monroe vibe.

STEP 4: LOCK IT IN PLACE

To make sure your style lasts all day, criss-cross an additional bobby pin with your first pin to really anchor your faux bob. We let the ends of each picked-up section hang loose for an edgy appeal.

There you have it! You’re instantly a modern, trendy gal giving off classic Marilyn vibes at the same time. It IS possible, ladies!
