How To Recreate Naomi Watts’ Flapper Bob

To achieve this look, you’ll want to begin with freshly washed and conditioned hair. If you’re in the market for a new shampoo and conditioner system, we love Biolage Smoothproof Shampoo and Conditioner. Inspired by nature’s water-resistant camellia, the Biolage Smoothproof system for frizzy hair provides humidity control and anti-frizz smoothness even in 97 percent humidity—making it the perfect system to prep your strands before hitting the red carpet or making your grand entrance.

After washing and conditioning your mane, prep your strands with Biolage Styling All-In-One Coconut Infusion Multi-Benefit Spray and Biolage Styling Whipped Volume Mousse. Campora says this combination is essential for providing smooth and shiny results after blow drying.

Then, gently blow dry your hair until your mane is completely dry and give yourself a deep side part on the left or right side of your head. Use a 1-inch curling iron to create soft waves all over your head and gently comb through the waves to create your desired look. Once you’ve perfected your waves, tuck the section of hair on the smaller side of the part behind your ear and lock your look in place with Biolage Styling Complete Control Fast-Drying Hairspray to add natural-looking body and volume.
