Fake It 'Til You Make It: 9 Ways To Rock A Bob WITHOUT The Commitment

When it comes to beauty, our mantra is pretty simple: fake it ‘til you make it. Surprise pimple? Fake a clear complexion with a dab of concealer. Dark circles? Fake a good night’s rest with a swipe of well-placed highlighter. Our hair, however, is a different story. Other than faking freshly-washed locks with a spritz of dry shampoo, there are few styles that really require any faking on our part…until now.

A well-executed faux bob is the perfect way to flaunt the daring short hairstyle without actually going in for the chop—just ask Lea Michele, Cate Blanchett, or Amy Adams.
