Rihanna’s bob hairstyle has been all the rage since its first appearance. For those of us that want to rock this hairdo without having to commit to a permanent look, there are a few key steps to achieving this style with ease. Here we provide a guide on how to get the most out of Rihanna’s signature look.
Before you begin styling, it is essential to have a clean and well-conditioned head of hair. Use a quality shampoo and conditioner to ensure your hair is clean. Towel-dry your hair before you begin styling and apply medium-hold product to the roots in order to aid volume.
Blow-dry your locks in a downwards motion and aim the nozzle of your hairdryer at the crown of your head where you want to enhance volume. Use a boar bristle brush in order to get rid of excessive puffiness and add a polished finish. If your hair is naturally straight, use a round brush to curve your locks at the end. If you have naturally wavy hair, steer away from the hairdryer entirely when styling the ends and lightly scrunch your ends to achieve body and texture.
Once your hair is dried, it is time to finish off the look. Straighten the mid-lengths and ends with a flat iron, alternating between ironing the hair inwards and outwards in order to create texture, as seen on Rihanna. Finish off the hairstyle with a spritz of hairspray to ensure the hold of your hairstyle, making sure not to weigh down the locks with too much product.
Now you’re all set to flaunt this jaw-dropping look! Above all, the key to feeling great with any hairstyle is to have fun and be yourself. Whether you’re ready to take on Rihanna’s bob style or other looks, have fun experimenting with different options to make hair-dos that are truly your own.
