Going for the polished faux bob hairstyle, actress Emma Watson gave her mane plenty of retro appeal and dimension.

To duplicate the look, start by pulling up the top section of your hair, secure it with a clip and make a braid out of the bottom sections. Twist the braid into a coil and secure it with bobby pin to the scalp. Now, take out sections of the hair from the gathered hair and tuck the braided ponytail underneath the long hair so it appears shorter.

10. Long Wavy Bob:

To get the actress’ glossy look, dab a good volume boosting mousse on your centre parting, damp hair with texturizing gel for a more natural look. For the final look, spritz a good light hairspray. You see, flyaways aren’t always bad!
