The road to hair hell is paved with good intentions – you’re definitely going to start deep conditioning once a week, and get those all-important six-weekly trimming sessions booked, right? Thing is, there’s just no TIME.

But here’s a super-easy hairstyle that works on any hair longer than shoulder-length: the faux bob, or fob.

You may have seen the likes of Taylor Swift, Eva Longoria and Beyonce all rocking the fob – Naomi Watts even did it this week on the red carpet at Cannes, and it’s a great halfway point between relaxed waves and a glam up-do.

We turned to hair expert Andrew Jose, owner of his own London salon and brand ambassador for Salon Science, to find out just how to get the look.

Check out the gallery of celebrity bobs below for some hair inspo and tweet us @heatworld with pics of your finished fobs – we want to see how you get on!
