Jenna Elfman’s Flipped Out Bob

Jenna Elfman’s Flipped Out BobActress Jenna Elfman appeared at the 2013 amfAR gala in New York with a sweet and charming rendition of the classic bob: a refreshing change from the long tresses, ponys  and up dos that usually populate the red carpet.

The full side-swept fringe and flirty layers at the jaw line were created by celebrity stylist Joshua Ristaino of the Magnet Agency.

“The choppy, undercut bob is definitely trending for spring right into summer,” said Ristaino. “A great bob now is between the jaw line and just above the shoulders and delicately layered.”


Prep the hair with René Furterer  KARITÄ’ Leave-in repairing serum as a nourishing base for blow outs or hot tool styling.

After blow drying, take a deep side part. Take sections, mist with René Furterer VEGETAL  Finishing Spray and curl with a one-inch curling iron. Hold curls in place with a clip to set.

When the hair cools, unclip the curls and have client hold head upside down. Liberally apply Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray and brush curls vigorously to add height.

Mist hair overall with René Furterer VEGETAL Finishing Spray. “Jenna was ready to steal the spotlight on the red carpet,” says Ristaino.
