Bob hairstyles are not only gorgeous, but also very versatile and sassy to sport. If you are really tired of that 'girl next door' look with long tresses, then it's time you display the versatility of bob hairstyles. The traditional bob haircuts were short and sleek with the hair being cut in the same length. The length of such haircuts are always between the chin and the shoulders. Well, that's old news now. The new hairstyles have gone way beyond the old ones. The best features is that they generally suit any facial structure and be worked upon in different ways to change the basic style.
Besides, these hairstyles are easy to maintain. All you require is a quick shampoo and a blow dry. However, depending on the texture of your hair, you can use specific hair products to get the right look. These hairstyles are also equally popular with most celebs like Katie Holmes, Cameron Diaz, Keira Knightley, Jenny McCarthy, and many more. So if you want a look that speaks more than words ever will, take a look at the different types of bob haircuts.
Bob Haircut Styles
Here, I'd like to mention that there are various types of hairstyles which you can consider. If you're not sure as to which haircut will suit you, take advice from your hairstylist. That way, you can be sure not to take a risk.
Blunt Bob Hairstyle
Blunt, A-line bobs can make you look really fashionable and can be changed or altered for day or night events. Blunt bobs are snipped geometrically into a straight line. Here, the fringe is in a horizontal line as well as the ends of the hair, which kiss the jawline. Such haircuts can be played around to have different looks.
To style these haircuts, ensure you wash your hair with specific products that are designed to suit your hair type. Then, detangle the hair with a wide toothed comb. Use a styling gel for better manageability. If possible, let the hair dry naturally. If you need to use the dryer then use a round brush and turn the edges slightly under whilst drying. Use hairspray so that the hair stays perfect for a longer duration. There are variations in blunt bobs as well. So make sure you get the right bob that will suit you.
Asymmetrical Bob Hairstyle
Although this classic bob has been worn in various ways, the asymmetrical haircut is very much in vogue these days. This is truly hip and trendy, and looks better on women with straight hair. However, if you're really interested in getting this haircut, but your hair texture doesn't permit them, you can get your hair straightened. Here, the hair is cut above shoulder length and gentle layers are added behind to have a round designed angle around the face. These haircuts look fab with wispy side swept bangs. Sometimes, the hair is also parted dramatically to one side.
To style your asymmetrical bob haircut, you need to shampoo your hair with anti-frizz products every time. Don't forget to apply conditioner afterward. Use a round brush to blow dry your hair. Lift hair at the roots as this will help to boost the volume. You may need to use your fingers to detangle and give it the required shape for the crown. Add a soft-hold hairspray or you can even go in for a super shine hair product to make it look sassy.
Inverted Bob Hairstyle
This hairstyle is one of the oldest and has been modified into various forms today. This haircut is generally worn tapered around the perimeter and is kept close at the neckline. The funky inverted bob has added height at the crown. At the back of the head, the cut is more tapered. The inverted bob can range from being stylish to funky, depending on your liking.
The length of inverted bobs can be really short, till your chin or even medium length at times. These can be decked with highlights. The key to getting an inverted bob is to cut your hair in regular intervals. This way, the cut will look fresh for a longer time and you'll be able to sport the hairstyle easily.
Curly Bob Hairstyle
Not everyone has straight hair. Also, the need to straighten them, at the salon or at home, is not necessary. Why? Because women with curly hair can also sport any of the new bob hairstyles. You can use this to your advantage and have bob haircuts that can spice up your looks. Use layers into your haircut to add definition to the curls. Hair can be cut to just below the chin level.
This style would let the curls frame the face gently. The front of the hairline can be kept short. To style the curly bobs, leave in the conditioner and towel dry the hair. Use some mousse through the upper layers. (Do not let it touch the roots.) You can even blow-dry your hair but scrunch it gently with your fingers. Use some shine serum on the edges for ultra-glossy curls.
These new bob hairstyles can really turn your look upside down (for the better). Plus, a new haircut always gives me the much-needed self-esteem boost I need. So what are you waiting for? Pick up your phone and see your hairstylist today! You will love the new haircut; trust me.
