The textured bob is set to be one of the hair highlights of spring 2015. But, that doesn't mean we can't take a stab and creating the look for fall. Seen on the David Tlale runway last weekend, the trendy twist to the classic bob turned heads. Created by Rihanna's previous hair stylist, Ursula Stephens, the strong hair look was inspired by African heritage, while maintaining a modern edge.
For Tlale, this look was the perfect completion to a spring collection designed for the powerful, feminine woman that stands firmly in her essence. Tlale notes that his spring 2015 collection was about " giving women back their power and equipping them with a strong and confident sense of allure."
We were so impressed with the collection and their hair that graced his runway, we wanted to share the official steps to re-creating this look with our readers. Check out the easy steps to obtaining your chic, textured bob below!
Ursula's textured bob how to:
- Starting with dry hair, create a defined center part and begin braiding at the hairline, carefully continuing a thin, definitive braid down the center-part using a “cornrow” technique until reaching the crown, and then using a standard 3-strand technique. UseMotions® Shine Enhancing Pomade on fingertips while braiding to smooth hair and provide a better grip
- Next, section the top portion of hair in a horseshoe shape and secure with clips. Then tease the remaining hair in sections from root to ends to create some body and texture
- Using a flat brush, gently smooth the surface of the teased hair and section into two halves, securing each with a clear elastic. Carefully roll each section under, securing tightly with pins and shaping the hair into a “faux bob”
- Remove the horseshoe section of hair from clips and use a crimping iron to create texture, spraying the Motions® Light Hold Working Spritz on each section. Once crimps are set, gently brush out and carefully lay hair over the faux bob foundation, tucking under with pins
- Set the look with a bit of Motions® Light Hold Working Spritz
