Bob hairstyles are one of the most popular short hairstyles for black women. Not only are they timeless, but you can also add your own unique touches to it. And Denise Granberry from Global Tresses Hair Salon in Spring Lake, NC has done just that with bluehighlights. Let’s discuss the steps you need to take in order to achieve this look.
What You’ll Need:
Wrapping/ Setting Lotion
Fine tooth comb
Marcel Irons/Flat Iron
Step 1: Shampoo and Detangle
Start with a clean head of hair. Shampoo your hair with shampoo and afterwards take the time to detangle. Making sure that you have all of the knots and tangles out will ensure a more flawless and smooth end result.
Step 2: Apply wrapping lotion
Take a generous amount of wrapping lotion and apply it to your hair. Make sure that it is evenly dispersed through the hair so that it sets properly. If using foam lotion, remember to wipe away any excess from your hair as too much will leave a white residue behind after it is dry.
Step 3: Wrap Your Hair
Part your hair across the top of your head starting from one ear. Take this section and comb it forward and towards your opposite ear. Smooth your hair in this direction around your entire head. Make sure the hair feels snug and smooth around your head. The wrapping lotion will help it to remain in place.
Step 4: Let Hair Dry
Sit beneath your hooded dryer for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the length of your hair. It’s very important that you don’t touch your wrap until it dries as it will interfere with how well it sets.
Step 5: Comb hair
When your hair is completely dry, comb it out with your dry, fine tooth comb. You may also consider adding light oil to your scalp so that your finished product will have a nice sheen.
Step 6: Bump ends
Depending on which tool you prefer, use your marcel irons or flat irons to bump the ends of your hair. Be careful to pay attention to how much heat you are applying. It’s best to test your tool on a thin piece of tissue paper before curling.
Step 7: Style
Use your claw comb to create designs for your bob. It’s best to use patterns that go in the same direction in which you wrapped your hair. Create a side part, starting above your eyebrow and add gel to hold it in place.
Bobs are incredibly easy and great for any occasion. All it takes it a bit of attention to detail and a few styling tools to make it work. Of course not every style is as simple and quick as this one, but there are many other black hairstyles for women that can be explored.
