Get The Look – The Textured Bob


66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals
We loved seeing all the textured bobs at the 2014 Emmy Awards!
Stars like Kristen WiigJulianne Hough, and Kate Mara all looked gorgeous with this chic, purposefully messy style.
This look works day or night, and is incredibly easy to duplicate!
1. Using a medium-size curling iron, curl 2-inch sections of hair, starting at the crown, without curling the ends. Alternate the direction of the curl with each section.
2. Flip hair upside down and work a small amount of volumizing mousse or dry shampoo into the roots to add volume.
3. Flip hair back over, and tousle hair with your fingers as needed to break up the curls and get the desired level of messiness. 
4. Apply a small amount of pomade to just the ends of a few sections of hair, to create a piecey texture, and finish with your favorite hairspray.
