It’s an understatement to say that the bob hairstyle has maintained its relevance as a trend. For the past two years, women are fascinated with the bob haircut. It started with one length and then moved to longer versions. Whether its shorter, longer, curly, straight, wavy, messy or sleek, it is showing up on the most stylish girls out there. Is the bob cut the answer to a base style that can be worn many different ways? The answer that women have been searching for as we face the mirror in the morning before work or before a night out and think, “What am I going to do with my hair?” Yes, it is! The bob is incredibly versatile! It translates in to an overall great style however you wear it. Here are four gorgeous ways to wear a bob.
Retro Bob. Gathering inspiration either from the mod ’60s or the grunge ’90s, the bob is made anew with something as beautiful as some pertinent retro accents. Go for a curly french vibe or mod London bad girl look with a curling iron and some spray to lift the curls into the right attitude.
Straight and sleek bob hairstyles are bound to look amazing on just anyone as long as your bob haircut of choice has flattering proportions. Here is where simplicity prevails, and the styling process shouldn’t involve more than straightening the locks, going for a deep side-part or a messy center part, and tucking the hair behind the ears for a strong and sexy effect.
The wet-look bob is perhaps the most accessible of the styling options for the bob. The wet finish will instantly elevate your bob haircut and add to its versatility. It’s also the easiest to do. Use a product for high shine and use enough to make it look almost wet. You can comb it straight or leave it tousled or do both, wet and straight in front and less wet or wiped down in the back or on the ends.
Wavy or Messy Bob. Coming across as unfussy and undemanding at the same time, the messy bed-hair texture is an attempt to update the classic bob haircut into an infinitely edgier style. They also do a wonderful job in complementing both the natural vibe and a more wild approach to beauty. The other great thing is that they can be styled in so many different ways. You can use your natural waves, play upon volume and look slightly undone, all the while looking intentional about your style or not. The wavvy or messy bob hairstyle captures a certain femininity cast by soft waves and a slightly undone finish.
When the time is right and you feel like making a change, there’s nothing quite as liberating as chopping off your hair. So if you’re after a new hairstyle for the spring or summer, this may be the time to brave a short bob hairstyle. With your stylist’s help, discern the bob style that best complements your features and takes into account your hair type, which will dictate the bob’s length and shape for an overall cut that will make the most of your natural hair. And then take a deep breath and know that every morning, you can look in the mirror and know that there are lots of options to wear your new hair.
