MMM: The faux-bob, perfect party hair

I’m quite boring with my hair. It veers *crazily* between a straightened bob to a scruffy bun on most days.

But it is party season, so I have been looking for inspiration that involves neither of the above.

I am having a girl hair crush on Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh at the moment. Her tousled shoulder-length bob is gorgeous and is something I could do myself without having to book in an appointment with my hairdresser.

I also loved the tousled faux bob’s seen at Rodarte and Oscar de la Renta for AW12 (pics below), which give a similar look to Nimble Kimble’s (copyright Len Goodman/Strictly) and are perfect if you have longer length hair.

There is a great tutorial below (but the ‘after’ pics are a bit neat, you don’t need to make it quite so perfect).

Add clips, OTT jewels or a glitzy brooch/band creation à la Oscar de la Renta and you are party ready.
