Do you wish to get a bob cut, but never do things by halves so have decided to go for the short version? Before saying goodbye to your locks, make sure you are prepared to live with your new look, as a short bob means that you need to be disciplined about upkeep. If getting regular touch-ups at the salon to keep your cut looking flawless does not bother you, go ahead and take the plunge!
The short bob has got everything going for it to give you a great new look, provided the style is carefully chosen to enhance your features and your hair type. Unstructured or layered versions prevent your bob from getting that dense 'helmet head' effect and they can add volume to fine hair and boost the bounce of natural curls. Playing with different lengths can work wonders, no matter what your desired look! A-line or asymmetrical versions create a bolder look. The short bob is ideal for adding character to finer features. It also gives the timeless bob cut a modern and daring edge. Ultra-short blunt versions create an irresistibly retro style which flatters oval face shapes and goes wonderfully with square jaws, further enhancing their androgynous look. With the added a twist of a fringe, the bob becomes structured. This is perfect way to conceal a large forehead in the blink of an eye.
Once you have found the perfect short bob, it is down to you to try out lots of different hairstyles. Dare to try out glamorous curls, a wavy rock chick vibe or a wet look which will completely transform your hairstyle.
As for anyone who is still undecided, there is still the faux bob which you can rock whenever you fancy.
