The bob is a real classic when it comes to haircuts. This look never seems to go out of fashion, and can be adapted to all different hair types and face shapes, meaning pretty much anyone can give this timeless style a try. What about Gwyneth Paltrow's bob in her film ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’? The pros give their verdict.
The bob never dates. ‘Much like black and white, the bob will always be current and modern. Just take a look at Anna Wintour’s classic bob
and you’ll understand what we’re talking about. If you prefer a minimal look, the bob was made for you’.
Here, the bob has been cut into a symmetrical, one-length shape. ‘The model’s hair is very straight and quite bulky, meaning she needs a small clip to keep her front sections away from her face, especially as she’s decided against layers
. Although many women like to tuck their bangs behind their ears, thicker hair types tend to need more support, in the form of a bobby pin or two’.
To replicate this runway look, you’ll need to apply a straightening hair product before styling. ‘Perfect Liss
is ideal for those with unruly hair that needs taming into sleek locks. To nail this trend, make sure you straighten right from the roots to each tip, for a super-sleek finish’. Our advice:
Many women think that layers are superior to the one-length cut. However, this isn’t necessarily true! If you want to add volume and body to your locks, layers are your best friend, whereas you may want to avoid this technique if your hair is already thick and full.
