The bob might not exactly be a revolutionary cut, but it is still hugely popular and comes in many different forms. Don’t even think about overlooking it this autumn-winter season; nobody is above the bob! One bob that’s taking everyone’s fancy at the moment is the A-line bob, straightened to the extreme. Here’s how...
The idea behind the A-line bob
. A bob is a haircut with four sides of the same length. The A-line bob is graduated. This means it is longer at the front than the back, creating an ultra-modern optical effect. This style suits both square and round faces. On squarer faces, this cut results in a feminine boy-girl style, while the graduated bob has a slimming effect on rounder faces. As for your hair type, no advice needed. The effect can be just as pretty on straight hair as it is on curly hair once you start styling it.
The super-straight A-line bob
. For this new season this graduated bob is ultra-straight, as seen at Issa London. This strict style will not tolerate stray hairs or messy partings. The cut is short at the neck while the ends graze the bottom of the chin. Two essential items are required for styling: straighteners and a heat protector spray. A perfect centre-parting is created and hair is straightened on both sides. There is no fringe with this autumn-winter version; the super-straight graduated bob speaks for itself!
