Giving good case to make 2015 the year of the posh bob – following Selma’s Carmen Ejogo, who nailed the 1930s wave, and Kerry Washington’s swish, short ‘do – Nigerian stunner, Genevieve Nnaji has pull off a wavy, asymmetrical version that we at SPICE instantly fell for.
The multiple award-winning actress rocked her’s to the Silverbird Cinema, Victoria Island, Lagos as she attended the premier of Stephanie Linus’ movie, Dry clad in a monochrome dress, black clutch and heels. But her beauty look – think silver screen siren with classic red lipstick – was what got us, with especial thanks to the bobbed ‘do.
Get the Look
Want to steal Genevieve’s shorthaired style? Us too – and since we’re not ready to go for the chop, we’d like to add there’s nothing wrong with going the faux route; an easy faux bob à la Genevieve is the quickest way to join the cropped ‘do movement and make waves in style.
To get the look with your longer straight locks or curly hair, simply follow our step below;
1. First, brush through straight hair and spritz with a heat protecting spray before sectioning hair and wrapping medium to large sections around a curling iron, finishing with a little hairspray to hold. We at SPICE love Remington’s Keratin Therapy Pro Curl Volume Hair Tong (£24.99, here), which gives a loose but defined curl with volume.
2. Taking the end of the entire length of your hair, wind hair into a horizontal coil – using your fingers to wrap the hair around your finger, into a tube that runs parallel to your shoulders.
3. Using bobby pins – like Conair’s ($1.89, here) – secure the coil to the back of the head, at the base of the hairline, tucking it under itself so that the rest of the hair hides the coil.
