You've seen the bob haircut trend, or fell in love with Maya Jama's Comic Relief wavy bob, or simply felt the urge to snip off your locks and embrace a shorter look. No matter how you've come to consider getting a bob haircut, there's a chance you might be too scared of the commitment.

Well fear not, because a bob haircut doesn't have to be permanent, no matter how long your hair is. You see, Maya Jama's bob was actually a temporary faux-bob, as was Kim Kardashian's when she experimented with her sister Kourtney Kardashian's signature hairstyle. Celebrities like "Love Island's" Whitney Adebayo, Suki Waterhouse and Zendaya have also got creative with their bob hairstyles, despite them being temporary, and here's how you can too.

The key to a faux bob is hair extensions. This could be in the form of clip-ins, a half wig, or a V- or U-part wig. Essentially, each of these styles allow you to change the look of your hair using extensions, while keeping part of your hair exposed to maintain a natural look.
