Last night I experimented putting my hair up in a faux-bob and liked the results so much I tried it again today. I'm pleased to say that this hairstyle lasted all day long and only looked slightly tossed and windblown by night-time. My friends who saw me with "short" hair were very surprised~ they love this look like I do and were relieved to know that no hair-cutting was involved at all, only bobby pins :-)
I made a ponytail, then folded my hair up to chin-length. I still had an arm's-length of hair left, so I piled that on top of my head and pinned it in place with bobby pins. This beehive effect gives the overall look a 60's feel.
