Want to be completely on hair trend? Then try stealing Kerry Washington’s beautiful faux bob. Yes, FAUX! This means that you can have the look of a bob, without the separation anxiety attack you may get from chopping off your locks.

The faux bob is a very versatile look, great for that hot date, office party or even just a day at the mall. Here’s how to complete the look:
