Faux or not to faux?

If you are like us and just love your #longhairdontcare, then this current trend to chop your precious locks isn’t for you.  But help is at hand in the form of the ‘faux bob’ or ‘fob’.
We’ve seen several celebs teasing us with ‘have they or haven’t they’ gone for the snip.    First their was Big Bang girl Kaley Cuoco who did eventually crop it all off, but Rosie Huntingdon-Whitley #selfie sported a bob on the beach in LA this week.
We have to ask: why would you ever want to swap your fabulous long tresses for a crop?   Have the best of both worlds and faux-it!  Here’s how …
With the lower half of your hair, make two loose plaits and cross them at the nape of the neck, secure with kirby grips.  Tuck your lengths under and through the plaits.   Have a good spray with some Strong Hold Hairspray and loosen a few strands to give a natural effect.
If it get’s cooler in the evening, a great cheats version is to simply use your cardi or jacket collar ago securely hold your long locks in place and tease up your hair to just over the collar.    To tip is to straighten your hair to help seamlessly hide your locks.
