The bob is one of the most underrated superheroes of all hairstyles. There is a bob haircut to suit everyone and every season. Regardless of your personal style, face shape, hair colour or hair type, there is a version of this classic cut designed for you.
From layered to choppy and textured, as well as multiple length options, there’s a reason the bob is a favourite with celebrities and everyday women alike.
Benefits of a bob haircut
The bob haircut offers the ultimate in versatility. It is neither long or super-short but gives you the flexibility and benefits of both.
It suits all ages
It doesn’t matter whether you’re in your 20s or 70s, a bob haircut looks great on women of any age.
An experienced hair stylist can provide advice on the best type of bob haircut to suit your age and situation.
Compared to long hair, bob haircuts are much lower maintenance. You can dry and style your hair much faster.
On days when you’re short of time, depending on your length of bob, you may also have the option of pulling your hair back in a ponytail or half-up or half-down. You can also use clips to tame your tresses on a bad hair day.
Colour and styling options are endless
The bob haircut lends itself to a range of colour and styling options. Since it is a shorter hairstyle, you can afford to be more adventurous with colour which can be more damaging if you have longer locks or are trying to grow your hair.
You can also use curling or straightening irons to completely change the look of your bob or go from day to night.
That being said, to ensure your bob always looks its best, you should always use high quality products to protect your hair and minimise any damage.
Bob haircut types
The lob, also known as the long bob, is a favourite for women with round or heart-shaped faces. This style of bob haircut softens a narrow jawline. It is commonly cut a few centimetres below the chin line and works well with wavy or straight hair.
If you are after a blunt bob or have an oval-shaped face the chin-length bob may be the best choice for you.
Speak to your hair stylist about the exact length so your face doesn’t appear too long or out of proportion. Adding a fringe to this style can also help mask a long forehead.
A square shaped face can be softened with a choppy bob. Adding texture will create a less severe looking bob and give movement to your hair.
A blunt bob can create quite a statement and generally looks fantastic on heart-shaped faces. It usually looks best when styled smooth and straight.
This style of cut is most commonly angled so it is slightly longer at the jaw and shorter at the back. It can suit most face shapes.
