Flat hair? No such thing with a blunt cut bob. Getting that flattering volume on top is easy because your hair isn’t getting weighed down. Try this method: using a comb, push a section of hair at the crown up and heat it up with your blow dryer. Let cool before releasing.

For that “just-rolled-out-of-bed” look that looks like you didn’t try but still looks good, apply styling cream to minimize the frizz while your hair is wet, then let air-dry, scrunching it with your hands until it takes shape. The end result will depend on your hair texture.
