Elizabeth Banks' Faux Bob How-To

Elizabeth Banks hit a high note at the Pitch Perfect premiere in Los Angeles. We love the star's textured faux bob (fob?) so much that we got the complete breakdown of her look from hairstylist Jenny Cho. “I wanted to create a sexy and slightly disheveled feeling for a modern and edgy vibe," Cho told InStyle.com. To bring out the natural texture and body of the actress' hair, Cho scrunched a dollop of Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Whipped Cream Mousse ($3.75; suave.com for stores) into Banks's damp strands and dried with a diffuser. Then, using a one-inch barrel curling iron, Cho curled Elizabeth's entire head of hair before she shook it out and fluffed with her fingers. In sections, Cho clipped up the top layers while she teased the bottom half. To get the full faux bob effect, she tied the ends of the teased layers and anchored them underneath the nape of her neck with bobby pins. Cho left the top layers loose, and finished with a veil of Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray ($3.75; suave.com for stores).
