Sunsilk's Daren Borthwick Shows Us How to Create a Faux Bob

We enlisted Sunsilk's Australian stylist Daren Borthwick — who has tended to the tresses of Katie Holmes, Delta Goodrem, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Minogue, Rose Byrne; the list goes on — to show us how to create a runway-ready faux bob at home. Although the style works best on medium to long hair with layers in, as you'll see in the video, it is possible to create on mid-length hair so have fun experimenting with the look at home! Keep reading for the how-to.

  1. Start by parting your hair on the side and apply a tennis ball-sized amount of mousse to the hair and blow-dry.
  2. Once dry, spray a strong-hold hairspray all over the hair and wait for two minutes.
  3. Next, part the hair into four sections, from nose to nape and then ear to ear and spray with a heat protection spray.
  4. Starting from the nape, curl the hair in its four sections with a curling iron until the whole head is wavy.
  5. Shake your head from side to side while spraying strong-hold hairspray and again, wait for two minutes.
  6. Section your hair in three sections — one section on your right and the one on your left and the last section at your nape — and with a hair elastic, tie the ends of each section of hair.
  7. Starting at the nape section first, roll the hair up toward the head and pin into place.
  8. Then roll and pin the right side so it is the same length as the nape
  9. Follow suit with the left side, rolling so it's the same as the right.
  10. Once you have finished, spray one final time with strong-hold hairspray. Tip: your fringe will naturally fall out of the hold — let it! This will enhance the faux bob look and seem as though your hair is this length
