Bob hairstyles are in no hurry of going out of style!
This trend started during World War I as women no longer had time to waste on their hair and since then has never stopped growing, over the years becoming a style statement.
In 2013, the bob has a more flexible and accesible feel to it, the star being the shoulder length bob with its varieties.
The messy long bob
If you’re not willing to sacrifice a lot of your hair, here is an alternative for you : the long bob.
This shoulder length cut gives off the bob vibe without taking off too much length and just so happens to look great on all face shapes.
To get the long bob, ask for a blunt cut that falls just above the shoulders and has no layers. After the cut, thin out the ends with scissors or a razor for a sharper look.
For the messy look, just spray in a beach salt spray and scrunch your hair as it dries.
The long bob with bangs
Whether is a set of thick, blunt bangs or a more wispy style, bangs are a great way of keeping this hairstyle interesting.
Get the fringe that suits your face shape and hit the streets with your statement crop.
When deciding on what type of bangs you want , first consider your hair texture. Geometrical structures can be highlighted when matched with sleek locks, while the wispy bangs work best on a more wavy hair.
The waved flapper bob
The 1920’s are making a comeback once again, now taking over the hair industry.
The pristine, disciplined look that the flapper bob once was, is now given a modern update with more texture and more tousle, inclined towards a casual, less defined style.
How to create the waved flapper bob :
1. Tousled bob works best on second-day hair.
Start by creating a side part and by using a tail comb brush, backcomb the hair around the hairline and the parting.
2. Using a curling tong, curl relatively large chunks of hair strands.
3. Then use a paddle brush to comb out the curls.
4. With a flat iron, flatten the area around the hairline by pressing the hair, without running it over the curls.
5. If you have long hair, take the ends of the hair and secure it underneath with bobby pins.
6. Spray some hairspray and set the curls in place.
