How-To: The Hocus Pocus Bob

If you want to trick everyone into thinking that you have short hair this Halloween, or if you just like to play around with different styles without succumbing to scary scissors, this fabulous look is for you!

Last week's issue of Us Weekly featured a faux new 'do seen on Eva Longoria, Molly Sims and the newly blonde Nelly Furtado. Angelina Jolie is wearing this hairstyle on the set of her latest movie, Changeling, too.

This look is easy to achieve, even for amateurs—especially if you follow my four simple steps. To read the details on how to get the hocus pocus bob,

  • STEP 1: Pull hair back into a low ponytail with a hair tie that blends in with the color of your hair. (Goody makes some inexpensive ones.)
  • STEP 2: Tuck the ponytail under and secure it with bobby pins to hold your hair firmly in place.
  • STEP 3: Next, pull a generous amount of hair from the tops and the sides to create the illusion that your hair is down.
  • STEP 4: Lastly, curl the loose hairs with a curling iron so they shorten and look more voluminous. Mist your entire head with hairspray and then loosely pin back any extra long hairs to create an overall shorter appearance!
