Hairstyle head-to-head: the strict bob vs. the wavy bob

The bob has proved itself as a timeless cut. Cropping up on most catwalks every season, this hairstyle will never go out of fashion, as long as the golden rule is stuck to: the length should be somewhere between the chin and the shoulders, no exceptions! So, should it be worn strict or wavy? We take these two hairstyles head-to-head.
 
The strict bob. A great choice if you have straight, flexible hair. The strict bob can be worn any time, any season. But with this style it's important you visit your hairdresser regularly for a trim. For the strict bob, hair needs to be ultra-healthy! This style couldn't be easier to create. After washing your hair, part your hair in the centre and blow dry. For an ultra-straight finish, use your straighteners throughout your hair.
 
The wavy bob. Wavy hair has been a hot trend for a few seasons now, and it also works on short hair. This style is perfect if you're looking for something girly and bohemian with a bit of movement. For maximum volume, after washing your hair, create a side parting on the side of your choice. Dry using your hair dryer and don't forget to use a styling mousse. Next, create loose waves using curling tongs. When you're done, apply a layer of hairspray to hold in place. For a lasting effect, look into Jean Louis David's wavy treatment.
 
Our verdict. The wavy bob is definitely our favourite. Suitable for any situation, at the office or on a night out. This version of the bob requires less work but is just as feminine and dynamic. The strict bob should be saved for special occasions and worn with an outfit that softens its stern feel.
