Bob hairstyles

Bobs are more than just a type of hairstyle; it’s a statement! It imbues independence, strength and a crossover to modern times. Nowadays, a bob is one of the chicest ways to update one’s mane. Versatility is not lost with its shorter length. You can go for an edgy look with an angled cut or opt for a romantic touch by adding soft waves.

Her hair was parted with a deep side part, and then styling product and blonde bobby pins were used to pin hair to one side. A curling serum was applied to her hair before using a styling wand to create beautiful, spiral curls.

Julianne Nicholson has really mastered the art of short coifs. We love her in a pixie cut, short shag and this above-the-chin curly bob! Embrace the befreckled beauty’s cut if you’ve got a face shape that’s either oblong or oval; forego the cut if you’ve got a sharp jaw line or plump cheeks. Avoid looking like a poodle by making sure that the curls don’t go too wild! Keep them soft, bouncy and glossy. Shine serum is the best product that can do all that. Use it with gusto!

We love this ‘do! It’s very sophisticated and truly exhibits high glam except for the bobby pins. Ditch the bobby pins when you recreate this hairstyle. The pins are there to set the style after you’ve spritzed some hairspray. Do a swift blow dry over your mane to set the style further then gently remove the pins. Applying gel before working on your hair will make everything way easier. Try it!

The wavy bob is definitely one of the most loved ‘dos of 2013. It’s fun, easy to do and flattering! For natural waves, curl sections (2″) of your hair using a thin flat iron. Glide the flat iron until the tip of the sections then roll it sideways (away from the face). After 5 seconds, release. Scrunch your hair a little for some volume. Hairspray is optional.

First, we need to tell you that this hairstyle is practically fuss-free but the outcome is still oh-so stylish! If you don’t have naturally wavy hair, create some sexy waves via curling wand. Once hair is cool to the touch, jooge them up a little for a messy look. Instead of doing a full half-up, gather a narrow (4 fingerbreadth) section of hair on top. Twist it and push it forward to create a baby bouffant before securing it with some pins.
