Throughout the years, the bob has been one of the most-loved and sought-after hairstyles and many celebrities have sported it in the past. Even today, many celebrities carry a bob with elegance and style. However, the interesting thing is that there have been several variations of the bob and all of these have been in fashion for decades. If you are someone who cannot manage long hair or find the daily styling tedious, a bob is one of the best options for you.
Sleek and Straight
One of the simplest and most stylish forms of bob is sleek and straight. A lot of celebrities are wearing it and it is the easiest to pull off. Whether you blow dry you hair or simply straighten it, a straight bob is much more manageable than all its other variations. The straight bob comes in different lengths – it can be very short or shoulder-length, depending on your preference.
Waves and Curls
A bob is not only for people with straight hair – if you have wavy hair, you can very easily wear a short bob or one with layers. With a layered bob, you can easily divide the volume so that you don’t end up having a fluffed up hair do. If you are not sure, you can always ask your hair stylist to guide you.
One great way of carrying a bob is by pulling back hair from the front and tying it up neatly, while the rest of the hair hangs loose. You can also incorporate a little bit of back combing if you are afraid that the pulled back look will look too flat. The best thing about this style is that it looks formal, especially if you add a classy hair accessory.
Bob with Bangs
If you have an oval or round face, you can still wear a bob extremely well by adding some bangs or fringe so that it frames your face and makes it look slimmer. By adding highlights to your hair, you can make it look even more glamorous and give your face a much thinner effect.
If you have a long face, the chin length bob is definitely for you. A short haircut makes a face look longer so the best cut for long faces is chin length bob with bangs for extra effect. Another thing you can try with long face is putting waves or curls in your hair to soften it up.
The chin length bob has been sported by many celebrities and has a great overall effect on the personality.
One of the trendiest and the sexiest bob variation is the inverted bob. The hair on the front is longer than the back and the top is fuller, making it look much more stylish that the other variations. The stacked and graduated look at the back is very effective and it looks great with highlights. If you are not so sure about this style, ask your stylist to show you some pictures.
