Hairstyle head-to-head: the 1940s bob vs the curly bob

The autumn-winter 2013-2014 season celebrates the bob cuts. Diversified to no end with varying effects and colours, short cuts can be worn differently depending on your taste. On the catwalk this season, two trends emerged in particular: curls and bob cuts inspired by the 1940s. A good excuse to put these two trends head-to-head.
 
The 40s bob cut. During the '40s, women decide to have fun without needing a man. They cut their hair and wear glamourous make-up . It doesn't matter if the cuts are asymmetrical, they choose to just do as they wish! Their translucent skin stands out perfectly in contrast with ebony dark hair. A cut that subtly represents a bold emancipation. To accomplish this rather innovative and deconstructed cut, make an appointment at one of our salons. The fringe is short and so are the lengths of the cut. Let your hair dry naturally after washing in order to obtain a disheveled look.
 
The curly bob. The search for volume is the reason behind the bob, but this is not always the case. The curls bring glamour and style to bobs that lack it. The result? A sophisticated and lively cut. While it is particularly popular for parties, it can also be sported on a daily basis…that is if you have the time to work your curls to perfection in the morning. To achieve this hairstyle, wash your hair and apply a styling mousse. This gives a natural feel to your curls when blow-drying. To increase the volume of the curls, add a diffuser to the hair dryer. After , use rollers to create perfect curls , let dry and secure with hairspray.
 
Our verdict? The 40s bob cut, despite its retro and marginal touch, seems difficult to adapt to everyday life. The cut, almost neglected , gives off a disheveled feel and is not very wearable. However, the curly bob is timeless, glamourous, and modern. The curly bob is more accessible on a daily basis than the 40's bob as seen on the Louis Vuitton catwalk.
