This blonde bob is blow-waved perfectly turning the ends under to frame the jaw-line for a smooth and silky look and feel. This hairstyle is easy to manage with regular trims every 4-6 weeks and great for any occasion. A little product is needed to tame fly-away and to add shine.
Mary J Blige looks chic here in a classic chin length bob. This hairstyle gives Mary J a youthful, trendy look and also flatters her face shape nicely. Like most ovals, she can sport any hairstyle with ease, but this blunt cut with a center part looks especially good on her. This â€˜do is timeless and will work with any look that Mary J is going for. The simplicity of this hairstyle is its strength and is ideal for women who want to show off their eyes and cheekbones.
Usually, itâ€™s not advised to go more than two shades lighter or darker than your natural hair color but as we can see here, this rule can be broken and still have fabulous results. Mary J has natural black hair and has lightened her bob all the way up to a light wheat blonde, proving that ladies with dark complexions can pull off blonde with ease. Short hairstyles are recommended in this case however, to keep the hair looking healthy and damage at a minimum.
Mary Jane Blige is an American singer, songwriter, model, record producer, and actress.

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.
2. Use a Medium Radial Brush
A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3. Blow-dry the Back Under
To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.
4. Blow-dry the Sides Under
To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.
Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
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.
