Alexa Chung's Voluminous Bob Tutorial

There’s no denying that Alexa Chung has one of the most enviable (yet effortless) hairstyles. Just enough volume on the ends, never too fussy, and always looks like she just rolled out of bed, which, she probably did.

For the rest of us mere mortals who weren’t blessed with thick, voluminous hair, this tutorial should suffice.


1. To really penetrate those roots, use a lifting shampoo and massage for 3-5 minutes into your hair. Rinse with tepid water and leave the hair to naturally air dry.

2. While you’re waiting for your hair to dry, use a volumising mousse on your ends and roots. This will really help to thicken your hair and add some much-needed texture to it.

3. If you are rather impatient, use a diffuser on a cool temperature and concentrate it mainly on your roots. Use a round brush to give your hair some extra volume. To avoid any annoying flyaways, use a finishing spray to boost the sleek and shiny texture of your hair.
