The bob is having a major moment. The look is fresh, modern and so versatile and I’m loving the fact celebrities are all jumping on board the trend and giving it their own take. I know I found styling my long bob really easy and it was about as low maintenance as you can get.
If you’re thinking of getting a bob make sure to take into account your face shape. A haircut that suits square shaped faces may not suit round or heart shaped faces and vice versa – you want to get the most flattering style and length for you. If in doubt, always talk to your hairdresser before you start and get them to recommend a particular bob style that they think would suit you. Get them to talk you through the cut and be sure to tell them what you do and don’t want from a haircut. If you only have limited time to style your hair and the cut you want requires some extensive styling, then you might need to modify the cut slightly to suit your needs. Also, if you’re afraid to go short, there’s no harm in doing it gradually. After all it’s easier to cut more off than have to wait to grow it out! If you’re after a change I would definitely suggest taking the plunge – it’s a haircut that definitely works on so many different people. I’ve even prepared some celeb inspiration for you!
