Janelle Monae Short Curly   Black  Bob  Haircut  - Visual Story


This vintage-inspired hairdo looks great thanks to the blunt ends cut all through the back and sides allowing the curls and waves to sit perfectly. This formal hairstyle is easy to re-create with the right tools and products and best suited for long face shapes.

Janelle Monae looks gorgeous here in a short curly hairstyle that has an old style Hollywood feel to it. This cut is ideal for ladies like Janelle who want to work with their hair’s natural texture rather than against it. She has an oblong face and large eyes which are nicely framed by this ‘do. She also has a high, broad forehead that is camouflaged well by the layers of hair around her forehead. Her strong cheekbones are also enhanced by this short curly ‘do. To enhance her hair's texture, she has backcombed and fanned out her waves for added volume and bounce.

Janelle is used to experimenting with her hairstyle but typically stays within the same color range of black and dark brown. Here, she goes for a stunning jet black shade all over to enhance her classic look, and show off her shiny tresses. This looks fabulous with her warm, glowing complexion and large dark eyes.

Janelle Monáe, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and model signed to her own imprint, Wondaland Arts Society, and Atlantic Records.

Styling Steps

1. Part to the Right

step 1

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

2. Scrunch Hair Dry with a Diffuser and Fingers

step 2

Lift your hair up with your fingers and move the diffuser up to the ends, motioning the diffuser to the scalp in circular movements. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off. Leaving a little bit of moisture will allow the hair to dry naturally.

3. Tease Hair

step 3

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

4. Apply Hairspray

step 4

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
