The Wavy Bob

Sexy yet effortless, this version of the bob combines the trend for natural waves and the classic cut. You can wear it to work, at the beach, or even on the red carpet (we’re sure you’ll get there one day). Its slight tousle gives your bob an added allure. As a bonus, it’s a low maintenance gem. No blow drying, no sculpting.

“The key to obtaining the perfect wavy look is Waves Fatales by Tecni.art from L'Oréal Professionnel,” McKnight says.

The formula creates seductively contoured and bouncy waves with optimal shine. You’ll be left with an effortless, disheveled style that looks completely natural!

A hit on the runways and ideal in summer, this slick look is easily obtained thanks to wet look spray or oil.

The Classic Bob

There’s nothing like this classic cut, with or without bangs. Sporting straight cut edges, it gives your look real definition and frames your jawline while remaining natural. It’s also a great cut to add texture to fine hair.

For extra volume, try applying Kérastase Mousse Bouffante to your strands and scrunching. There’s nothing more flattering than volume right at your crown.

The Long Bob

We’re sure you won’t have missed the recent lob craze, as everyone has rushed to capitalize on the short hair trend while airing on the side of caution. If you’re enticed by the chop but fear the regret, then opt for a long bob. Added bonus: You’ll still have lots of room for styling, as you’ll have lots more hair to play with!

The Rainbow Bob

The catwalk has recently been sporting a whole host of pastels and vibrant colors in the form of a bob. Embrace the rainbow and try something new! To revive and recapture the subtlety of shades on colored hair, use Shu Uemura Art of Hair Color Lustre. The formula provides a harmonious veil of color, lavish touch, true shades, and an overall lustered finish.

The Side-Swing Bob

Parting your bob down the side instantly adds volume. Don’t forget to spritz Redken Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray before leaving the house, either. Mist on dry, styled hair to create an airy effect with tousled body and a soft-matte finish.

Timeless, classic and effortlessly chic, the bob became a must during the 1920s and it’s still just as hot today. Whatever your style of choice—short or long, slick or natural, curly or poker straight—there’s a bob out there to suit everyone.
