To fake a bob

Part hair on the side, then se­cure strands into a low, loose pony­tail. Cre­ate a “roll” by tuck­ing and rolling the tail un­der to­ward the pony’s base; pin. Then gen­tly fan out the sides of the roll to cre­ate a bob-like shape. Next, pull out a few loose sec­tions around the face and sides for a nat­u­ral soft­ness that con­ceals tucked strands.

To fake a pixie

Cre­ate a side part and sep­a­rate hair into two hor­i­zon­tal sec­tions (one on top, one on bot­tom). Next, clip the top part up and se­cure the bot­tom part into a low bun at the nape of the neck. Un­clip the top and tease the en­tire length, then leav­ing bangs out in front, pull the rest of hair back over the bun; pin and set with hair­spray.

To fake a side bang

Make a deep side part, then cre­ate loose waves by wrap­ping 1" sec­tions of hair around a 2" curl­ing iron. Next, cre­ate “bangs” by loosely pin­ning the heav­ier side of the part right above the ear. Gen­tly tug on strands so they del­i­cately skim over the brow bone to boost the “faux” fac­tor.
