Revealing her baby bump, Zoe Saldana stepped out in a Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 Black Lace Dress And Jimmy Choo Kamelia Shimmer Feather Sandals for the premiere of “Guardians of Galaxy.” Sporting classic makeup — read, red lip — Saldana’s faux bob was the mane attraction and added to her glamorous Hollywood image.
Celebrity Hairstylist Frank Barbosa who has worked on movies with stars like Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner, and Sarah Jessica Parker shares his tips for creating the latest hair trend on how to create a faux bob via “Tucking.”
”Tucking” gives the illusion of shorter hair without cutting your locks off. Simply take the ends of the hair rolling them under or even over. Why are stars stepping out in this style? Worn curly or straight, it’s an easy way to re-invent your image and try out any length temporarily.To achieve, hair must have some length (think at least hitting your shoulders). It isn’t necessary to have ultra-long hair, just enough length to roll under or over.
Steps to a professional looking faux bob:
1. Loosely gather the bottom portion of your ends and tuck under into a roll securing with bobby pins. This is where you can also decide how short or long you would like to go.
For straight hair; opt for a paddle brush to mold a smoother, sleeker “tuck”. For wavy hair, use your fingers to arrange curls in place (brushing will only disturb the texture).
2. Once tucked, work the style with your fingers to fan out the sides. Use the tail end of your comb to lift or pull out shorter pieces. To create bangs like Zoes, pin longer hair up behind ears, and let “tucked” hair fall over the pinned bangs.
