A New 'Do Without The Commitment? Faux Real!

To cut, or not to cut? That is usually the (agonizing) question. Whether it be a trim or something more drastic, like bangs, we're perpetually participating in an endless internal debate on whether or not to snip. And as it turns out, we're kinda chicken when it comes to making the cut.
Enter, the faux-bob, celebrity favorite (hi, Kate Beckinsale and Lea Michele!) and runway staple (Rodarte, Oscar de la Renta...). This tricky tress trend involves folding up your hair to create the illusion of shorter strands. Easier than it sounds, we swear. To prove it, we had our girl Taylor demonstrate the best way to snag this sneaky look. Watch this video tutorial to steal her insider tricks and then get bobbing.
