  • If you need extra volume, add in a few wefts of clip in extensions.
  • Use as many bobby pins as you need until your hair feels secure.

#2 Split hair in two sections on each side of your head.

#3 Grab the front section of your hair and roll it up with your two fingers to wherever you want your bob to end.

#4 Use bobby pins to secure the hair into your head.

#5 Repeat for the three other sections of your hair.
