Oh, how I covet Ali Larter's long, graduated bob. The secret to this cut, by stylist Andy Lecompte, is long layers that begin just below the chin. Lecompte told Allure Magazine he used a razor to "soften up" Larter's ends so they wouldn't be heavy and blunt.

The other secret to this look is in the styling. Larter has hair like me and we get waves like this simply by scrunching our hair as we blow it dry. You don't want to blow it all the way dry, however, I like to leave mine about 75 percent dry and then I spray my hair with a sea salt spray from John Frieda or Bumble and Bumble. I give you the full scoop on beachy waves and sea salt spray here.
