As feelings of empowerment ripple across the country in this millennial-fuelled era, there is no better time for self-expression – and your hair has always been a statement symbol for this. Buzz cuts and pink hair are no longer a rarity, but for some of us, we’re not quite ready to give up our basic hair routines and comfort blanket highlights.
6 Ways To Wear Your Bob
Timeless, classic and effortlessly chic, the bob became a must during the 20’s, as rocked by Louise Brooks, and it’s still just as hot today. Whatever your style of choice – short or long, slick or natural, curly or poker straight – there’s a bob out there to suit everyone. Keep scrolling to find out all you need to know about how to perfectly reproduce your favourite bob.
The Wavy Bob, AKA ‘Wob’
Sexy yet effortless, this version of the bob combines the trend for natural waves and the classic cut. You can wear it to work, at the beach or even on the red carpet (we’re sure you’ll get there one day). Its slight tousle gives your bob an added allure, and bonus: it’s a low maintenance gem. No blowdrying, no sculpting.
The key to obtaining the perfect wavy look is Waves Fatales by Tecni.art from L'Oréal Professionnel. It is a great product for all hair lengths and is particularly good for creating a wavy bob, as it creates a volumizing texture that is modern and cool. You’ll be left with an effortless, dishevelled style that everyone will think is completely natural!
The Wet Look Bob
A hit on the runways and ideal in summer, this slick look is easily obtained thanks to wet look spray or oil. If you’re hitting the beach, try L'Oréal Professionnel’s Solar Sublime spray to sport the wet look, while protecting your summer hair from sun and sea salt.
The Classic Bob
There’s nothing like the classic cut, with or without bangs. Sporting straight cut edges, it gives your look real definition, framing your jawline, while remaining natural. It’s also a great cut to add texture to fine hair. For extra volume, try applying Kérastase Mousse Bouffante to your strands and scrunching.
The Long Bob, AKA ‘Lob’
We’re sure you won’t have missed the recent lob craze, as everyone has rushed to capitalize on the short hair trend while airing on the side of caution. If you’re enticed by the chop but fear the regret, then opt for a long bob. Added bonus: you’ll still have lots of room for styling, as you’ll have lots more hair to play with!
The Rainbow Bob
The catwalk has recently been sporting a whole host of pastels and vibrant colours in the form of a bob. Embrace the rainbow and try something new! To maintain the shine and colour, use Shu Uemura Art of Hair Colour Lustre: a milk-like rinse, it is rich in vitamin A and goji berry extract that protects and nourishes hair.
The Side-Swing Bob
Parting your bob down the side instantly adds volume. Don’t forget to spritz Redken’s Wind Blown 05 Dry finishing spray for more volume, thickness and that enviable windswept texture. It’s also an instant way to breathe life into your bob in between salon visits.
