Anh Co Tran's Wavy Bob Styling: Curl hair in 1-inch sections with a 1.5-inch curling iron or wand. The goals is to create loose ringlets without curling roots/ends. Let your curls to cool fully. Blast roots with dry shampoo or texture spray. Slowly layer it in by section. Scrunch/shake out curls to muss the curl patterns. Use a dime-sized amount of styling cream to finger comb your hair back into place. Smooth ends with any leftover product to keep them frizz-free and smooth.
Anyone with short or medium length hair knows that updos can be a big struggle, if not totally impossible. But leaving your hair down all the time? That gets boring fast. I recently chopped a few inches off of my longish hair for a lob with choppy ends.
