BOB hair styles have been in existence for decades but they seem to be coming back with a bang. Bob haircuts have a way of looking good on women from different walks of life and this is why they are very common.
Celebrities can comfortably wear bob haircuts while at the same time professional women and rock stars can still rock the same style. It is the versatility and ability to accommodate a woman’s personality that makes bob hair styles very unique and interesting.
Some trending bob hairstyles
Long version of bob (LOB)
This is becoming a very popular style for women who don’t fancy the aspect of having short hair. The LOB incorporates the style of the traditional bob but in this case the hair is longer (shoulder length). This style goes well with all professions, looks and face types. With LOB, all hair types can be easily styled including a smooth straight hairstyle and wavy hairstyle. The LOB is for women who want to keep their sense of femininity and stay chic and flexible at the time. Longer hair is seen as a sign of femininity and the LOB allows the women to still keep their long hair.
Chin length bob
This is specifically ideal for a straight and smooth hair style. This is one of the most common types of bob hairstyle that almost every woman who loves bob has tried.
The essence of the chin length bob is to keep hair straight, smooth, shiny and well groomed. This hair style mostly flatters women with a square like face shape. To keep the hair straight and smooth at all times a flat iron comes in very handy. It is important to identify where you will be parting your hair to get the length right before having a haircut.
Super short bob
This is for the more daring type of women who are not afraid to keep extremely short hair. This hairstyle is a common signature style with celebrities like Ciara and Rihanna. This bob hairstyle comes out well when the hair is layered to give it a fancy look. Color can also be added to this hairstyle to avoid the plain and simple look. Layers add volume to it although there are women who still prefer it smooth and straight.
This bob has chin length just like the standard bob style. The uniqueness of this style comes in the shaggy look. To achieve this shaggy look, layers give the bob style a full and shaggy look that stands out. Just like the super short bob, this hairstyle is a sign of boldness (like in bravery, not absence of hair J) and ability to stand out from the rest. It’s most suitable for oval and round faces.
Medium length bob
This is not the classic chin length bob while at the same time it is not the long bob. The length of this one falls somewhere between the chin and shoulders but does not touch the shoulders. This hairstyle suits almost all types of face shapes and it is suitable for a smooth and straight hair to give it the stylish clean look.
