The Faux Bob

Hola! I see people with bob cuts and cannot help but think about the time when I had a bob as a child, just like Anna Wintour with front bangs. I loved my hairstyle, and having naturally poker straight hair, bangs and bob really suited me. But as I became a teenager, I wanted to grow my hair and wanted long hair like Rapunzel. I have always had medium length hair until lately, where suddenly something happened with my hair and they grew real fast. Even though I love my long locks, I miss my short bob and front bangs.
Personally, I love women who have bob haircuts. Bobs look very chic and stylish. And I have only seen really confident and stylish women having bobs at a mature age. While I love bob cut hair, I do not have the courage to cut my hair short. But my love for bob awakened when I saw Ritu Arya’s blog and her super chic bob haircut. I complimented her and she said graciously accepted it and suggested me to go get a bob done considering I have straight hair as it looks really nice. But ofcourse I do not have the courage. But then she mentioned to me that in her recent post she featured a faux bob! And I was like ‘whaaaaaaaat!!!’ . I loved it! And I immediately searched youtube for tutorial ‘HOW TO MAKE A FAUX BOB’. So many people have uploaded videos and I thought in my head, ‘whoa, I din’t even know so many people know how to do this’. Anywhoo I saw a lot of videos, but found a famous hair vlogger Luxyhair’s video the most helpful.

You can see her video here. Its very helpful and so easy.

So this is how my faux bob looked. Surprisingly it looked so real and so neat. I trolled a lot of people by sending my picture and saying I got my hair cut short. They were super shocked and my bestie even screamed at me! It was fun.

Look how neat and real it looks from  the behind.

I suggest everybody to try this. It was so nice to look myself in the mirror with short hair. I am going to try this again.

If you try this too, then please do share your experience and pictures.

DIY #2

Guys if you have been reading my blog, you would have seen I attempted to make jewellery. This time I am with a new DIY. I had a neckpiece, which I wore just once. You heard it right just once. I don’t know why did I in the first place buy it. So I thought I should revamp its look. I did a little something to it and now I am loving it and cannot wait to wear it.Gia from ‘Gia says that’ had done the same thing. And I extremely loved it.
If you have some old jewellery on a new one which you don’t like, pick it up.
Take a nail colour. I was dicey between neon pink and a minty colour. I actually wanted to colour it pink, but did not have enough paint, so I rather went for a minty shade. If you see my outfit post, you would notice I love this colour.
1) Take the neckpiece and first wipe it with a clean cloth.
2) Choose the nail colour and apply it with the nail paint brush itself. You will definitely need atleast 3 coats. It depends on the colour. Wait for a few minutes before applying the next coat.
3) Do not be impatient like I was and let it dry.
Tada…. The new neckpiece is ready.
The next time I am going to try using fabric acrylic colour instead of the nail paint.
If you liked the DIY, let me know. I shall do more DIYs in future.
Love, Sindhu
