This layered bob is blow-dried to smooth down the top while turning the ends slightly out for a pokey finish. The grown out bangs are worn draped across the forehead and complete the overall look brilliantly. Regular trims are needed to maintain this hairstyle.
Scout Taylor Compton looks beautiful here in a chic bob that falls just past the chin. This cut is ideal for showing off her strong facial features, especially her eyes and smile. The grown out bangs provide her face with a nice frame while the rest of her hair maintains an edgy windblown shape that falls just past her jaw line. The layered ends give her locks a healthy appearance and gives her fine hair the illusion of being thicker. This â€˜do has lots of movement to it and works with both casual and formal attire. Backcombing at the roots and throughout the lengths and ends gives her locks added volume and style.
Scout looks fabulous here in golden blonde locks that flatter her skin tone and eye color nicely. Having light blue eyes and a warm skin tone, she looks best in yellow and golden blonde shades, as well as her natural dark blonde color. This particular color has a hint of wheat blonde to it at the tips that highlights her warm complexion and makes her eyes pop. The roots have been left a bit darker for a more natural look, and to match her dark eyebrows.

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
Using the corner of your comb, create a straight part and then place your comb at the hairline and drag it through your hair, crisscrossing from left to right as you go. When you reach your crown, lift the comb up and then split the hair to each side, pulling it down to reveal your zigzag part.
3. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush
Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.
4. Use a Straightening Iron
When straightening your hair, first make sure that your hair is completely dry. Then, section your hair off starting from the back/nape using a comb. Straighten your hair starting from the roots and working your way down to the ends using your comb as your guide. Make sure not to leave the straightening iron in one spot for more than 3 seconds.

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.
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.
7. Style Sides Out Using Wax
To get your sides to sit out, apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then working mainly on the ends, pinch them while dragging the hair in an out and upwards motion. Be careful not to overdo that wax or your result will be a flat and limp style.
8. Wax the Back of Hair Out
Using wax and your fingers grab the mid-lengths of your hair and then drag it out and upwards for a full and messy result. Remember not to overdo the wax or your result will be a flat and greasy style.
