Step-by-Step: Faux Braided Bob

This week Ruth shares how to create a retro braided bob.  She uses a ponytail to shorten the under layers and then braids the bottom of the top layer loosely to create waves and finish the ends.  The overall look is a textured bob with a retro vibe that is great for anyone with longer hair and wants to temporarily go short for the day or a special occasion.
