How to Do a Short Bob Hairstyle for a Wedding, Part 2

Learn how to do a short bob hairstyle for a wedding from stylist Joy La Rosa in this Howcast short hair tutorial, part two of a two-part series.

So I’m just going to continue on the other side the same way, two sections twisting over the top. Whatever hair is next to that section, you twist in. Twist in. When you’re right here by the hair line, don’t worry if you have a couple of pieces of hair that fall out. Makes it more like an updo that way. Part of the reason I think this is cute is because we’re tricking the eye. We’re making the eye believe that there’s more hair than there is.

Okay. So now I’m at that back center part, the same part where I left off on the other side. So I’m just going to slip a couple of bobby pins in there to make it more secure. I’m trying to interlock those bobby pins. And then I’m just going to do one single twist in the back. Bobby pin it. I almost push it underneath the rest of the style.

And then, remember, you can never use too many bobby pins. So, if you’re starting to get little pieces hanging out, you can always add them in with a bobby pin. But this is kind of a softer, more romantic look anyway, so don’t get too hung-up on anything. All right.

Now, remember we had a little piece from the bang that fell out so I’m going to show you a great trick to get it to go away. I’m going to take the bobby pin. I’m not going to open it. I’m just going to slip it on the very end of the hair there and tuck it up underneath. And then remember this is a soft updo, so then I’m just going to take, kind of soften the edges up a little bit. Keep it nice and romantic looking. So this is a great way to style your hair if you’re going to a wedding.
