How To Recreate Julia Roberts’ New Tousled Lob

Academy Award-winning actress and producer, Julia Roberts, can be consistently filed under ‘hair inspiration’. A case in point came this week, when she revealed a new long bob, the shortest her caramel-coloured hair has been in a long time.

The impossibly chic-looking ‘lob’ is the handiwork of her long-time hairstylist Serge Normant (who, incidentally, was the man behind the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding day hairstyle).

The influential hairdresser shared the results on Instagram, with Roberts’ new cut styled in the ultimate tousled waves.

If you have naturally straight or wavy hair, a similar result can be achieved with the help of a trusty tong and some texturising product – as seasoned celebrity stylist and Ghd’s UK ambassador, Zoe Irwin tells Bazaar. Follow these simple steps to recreate Roberts’ look.

1. “Prep your hair with a texturising spray or curl/wave spray to ensure a matte texture and undone finish.” Bazaar recommends the Ouai Wave Spray, £22

2. “Using the Ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong, £120, work through sections of the hair. Holding the tong in a horizontal position, wrap the hair around the tool but leaving the ends so they remain straight – it isn’t about being too neat. For this cool finish work the waves in alternate directions.

“For thicker textures, section off the hair and work around the head from the underneath first.”

3. “Once you’ve achieved the waves, spray hairspray onto your fingers and break up the curls by running them through the length of the hair, teasing the curls as desired.”
