THE KYLIE BOB


If it isn’t already obvious, I have some serious envy for Kylie Jenner’s style. And since she cut her hair to the same length as mine a few months ago, I’ve been loving her fresher, and in my opinion, more chic look. Her ombré hair just hovers her collarbone, and she typically wears it super voluminous at the roots, straight and some serious texture at the ends. With a bit of tinkering, I think I’ve almost mastered the look and wear it almost everyday because it’s versatile, fast and has that effortlessly cool feeling.

I wash my hair, the usual. I let it dry until it’s about 95% dry, then blow-dry the roots, crunching up with my fingers to build a little volume and texture. I then throw it all up in a bun, and remove layer by layer, from the bottom up, running through with a flat iron once or twice max. I always leave a little wave to the pieces, it’s easier and (in my humble opinion) cooler. My part changes on the daily–even Kylie regularly swaps from deep side parts to modelesque middle parts. I make sure that the most face-framing pieces are a little extra straight, I think it flatters the face more. Then, going a little wild with some thickening spray (you can also use a dry shampoo here), crunching up the roots and making it look like I … how do you say… woke up like this. I usually finish off with a couple spritzes of surf spray to hold everything in place and establish just that little bit more texture. And voila!
