Sandra Oh... We love her faux bob...not only did the Golden Globes host and Best Actress in a Drama TV Series winner steal the show, but she also wowed on the red carpet with the vintage-inspired appearance. Sandra's brushed and tucked wavy style was oozing Old Hollywood glamour! Gatsby-Esque faux bobs-also called nervous bobs-were huge in the twenties (when women weren't confident enough to cut their hair into a bob shape). To get this look, apply a volume-boosting mousse on wet hair and blow it out until dry. Next, you need to wrap two small sections with elastic to create the faux bob. To create the faux bob shape, you need to tuck the section up beneath the rest of the hair and strategically place bobby pins throughout to secure it. Once you are done with the styling of this look, apply hairspray to keep your faux bob in place.
When it comes to your makeup application, you want to make sure it is formal/evening makeup. A smokey eye is always a good starting point. To make your eyes pop, add some false lashes. To keep with the vibe of this style, do a red lip like Sandra has done or you can go a bit more toned down and choose a pastel lipstick color. Make sure you highlight and contour your face and neck area to give off the illusion of a perfect oval face shape so you will look your best for your night out!

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 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.
3. Style to the Right Using a Blow-dryer
Working in sections, place your brush at the roots of your hair and then using a blow-dryer on low heat, drag your brush through to the ends styling towards the right.
A small hot roller is used to give your hair tighter curls.
Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.
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.
