If you believe that there is no haircut out there that’s perfect for thick hair, think again! Edurne Senosiain, Spanish brand ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel, points out that “the bob haircut has always been a classic.” That goes for all hair types!

Keep reading to see three trendy short bobs for thick hair that will have you falling back in love with your natural texture.

Old School Cool Bob

Thick hair provides natural definition and instant volume, especially for a blunt bob! You can even add a polished fringe and round out your lengths for a distinct ‘70s vibe.

“The most important thing is keeping the texture of the cut,” Senosiain says. “If not, the haircut looks careless.”

When you’re feeling playful, wisp up your ends for a Fashion Week inspired rebellious blowout. Using L’Oréal Professionnel’s Serie Expert Liss Unlimited Smoothing Cream with your blow dryer will make for a beautiful, photo-ready finish.

Choppy A-Line Bob

“One of the main ways to differentiate your bob from the rest is through playing with angles,” Senosiain says.

Stay hip with some choppy layers and a striking angular cut. We think it works best when paired with beach wavy hair! Your hairdresser can even take out some bulk with a parallel undercut for a weightless feel that lasts longer.

Low-key Long Bob

A one-length lob features no-frills or funny business. Want to turn this simple cut into something more on-trend? Get curling! Changing up your hair color can also make for a more personalized touch.

“It can really inject some personality into your look and let you mark your own stamp,” Senosiain comments.

Ask your colorist to paint on a rose gold metallic balayage by utilizing silvery tones from L'Oréal Professionnel’s salon-exclusive Majirel Metallics hair coloring range.
