The Bob: How To
This "trim" can be smooth worn smooth, or with texture. To rock the waves, Sims suggests applying a heat-protecting product like Göt2b Guardian Angel Flat Iron balm ($6; at drugstores) before using an iron to curl all your hair. We love the Hot Tools 1" Ceramic Ti Tourmaline Professional curling iron ($44; hottools.com
for stores). Lightly brush through, then tease, starting from where you want your bob to fall (say, around midneck), down to the tips. From there, either scrunch up curled strands to the desired height or roll hair under in 2- to 3-inch sections for a sleeker look, says Sims. Use U-shaped pins to secure scrunched or rolled pieces to the scalp, then give it a few shots of John Frieda Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold hairspray ($6; at Target). Voilà!
