Depending on how short your bob is, I think you have two options in putting it up for a party. If you do not have that much length to work with then I would recommend pulling up front sections of hair to create an edgy quiff. You can achieve this by creating a section at the front of your head and backcombing this section of hair. Then use a natural bristle brush such as Kentís Oval Pure Bristle Grooming Brush (£6.75) to smooth over the front of your quiff and then discreetly pin into place, setting with some powerful hairspray such as Fudge Membrane Gas (£10.95). Any hair that is too short to fit into the quiff itself can either be slicked back with gel and pinned for a dramatically sleek look, or left to hang down and straightened. If you have a mid to shoulder length bob why not try a small, delicate beehive, which can then be easily dressed up with some hair accessories for a touch more glamour! To achieve this look begin by applying some Fudge Pump Up Foaming Gel (£9.95) to your hair and then rough dry to create a matt, fluffy finish. This makes the hair more textured, giving it more grip, and so makes it easier to work with. Next, using a tail comb such as Kentís Fine Tail Comb, (£3.75) backcomb hair at the back of the crown and then again, smooth over with a natural bristle brush and secure at the base of the nape with pins. You may wish to pull out a few wispy sections of hair at the front to give the style a more bohemian, natural feel. Finish your style with a good dose of hairspray so you can enjoy your party without worrying about sections of hair falling out, and another top tip, always have some spare kirby grips with youÖ.just in case!
