Taylor Swift is always making an entrance, this year at the Grammy’s she debuted a new do! A bob, faintly reminiscent of our beloved Sia — Although, with chin length, mousy brown color, blunt edges and a fringe she definitely pays homage to everyone’s favorite editor, Anna Wintour.

Loving this look? Sherri Jessee gives us the step-by-step guide on how to recreate the style — follow the steps below: 

Step 1
To achieve the perfect bob shape, I used a technique that uses the head shape as a guide. Grasp the hair low and tight at the hairline and push up hand flat against the head until your pinky reaches the hairline.

Whether on the street, in editorial, or on the runway - buns are bigger and better than ever! In this tutorial, Sherri Jessee shows us how to make a big messy bun look sophisticated and polished. Follow her steps to get the perfect messy bun look... 

Before: hair has been curled on a 1 ¼” curling iron. 

1     Use your hands to sweep hair up to the crown of the head and secure into a high pony-tail. Allow front and back side pieces to drop out.

2     Create a “bungee” by putting 2 bobby pins on a small rubber band.

3     Swing pony-tail forward  and secure to the head with bungee.

4     Use several large bobby pins to pin a “bun pad” to the crown of the head. 

5     Grasp the edges of the pony-tail and swing over to cover the bun pad.

6     Use another bungee to secure the edges of the pony-tail. 

7     Drape the front side pieces around to the back. Pin to secure.

8    Spray with Pravana NEVO Super Shape Hair Spray for long lasting hold.
