Bob Hairstyles: Classic and Always In Style

Bob hairstyles became popular in the 20s and initially showed a woman’s independence, but was made popular when glamorous movie stars began to flaunt their own bob hairstyles.  Many people may wonder how and why bob hairstyles are still in, but we know exactly why: it’s because bob hairstyles are so versitile and can be worn at different lengths and variations to fit each woman.  With a cut like a bob, you can have a bob hairstyle that allows you to wake up and go or one that requires a little more maintainence and work.  Some women with naturally curly or wavy hair might enjoy the simplicity of a bob hairstyle because it gives them the option of not having to style their hair each day; instead they can rock their bob hairstyle ‘au naturale.’

Another way to make the classic bob hairstyle work for you is to consider the different lengths and variations of the bob hairstyle you can choose from:

  • A short bob hairstyle, cut along the above jaw line
  • A chin length bob hairstyle is cut right around the jaw line
  • A long bob hairstyle that is cut between the jaw line and shoulders
  • An angled bob hairstyle
  • An asymmetrical bob

With all these different bob hairstyles to choose from, there is surely one that is right for you.  Bob hairstyles can vary even more in the way that they are styled and whether you choose to have a true bang to your bob hairstyle, a side-swept bang, or no bang at all.  Here are some more great ideas for bob hairstyles from Schwarzkopf.com to guide you along your bob hairstyles selection!

Trendy Haircuts: The Bevelled Bob to the Rescue!

The bob is a classic among haircuts. People love wearing the bob most likely because the style is plain but not square, short but still variable. Nowadays, you have to add to the bob hair style the all-out bevelled side hair. Here we tell you who can wear the bob and how to care for it. Not every hair structure is suitable for the bob style. We will discuss that here too.

In the original form of the bob the hair is about chin-long with clearly defined contours. The bob is one of the most popular hair styles in the world because it is so easy to create and maintain. Over the years, the hair length has become more varied and may now range from earlobe- to shoulder-length. This means that you can optimally adapt the style to the proportions of your face. This applies in particular to the newest bob interpretations with bevelled side hair.

If your face is more on the long side you should opt for as short a bob as possible. This will keep the focus square on your face. Some steps make the cut light and lively, nothing droops. A bob with soft lines works best for chiselled facial contours. A round face looks best with a longer bob cut with little volume on the sides of your face.

The Bob is the ideal cut for (almost) all heads

The bob also demands little from the hair structure. The bob style can turn even fine hair into a stunning hairdo. Waves and moderate curls are also suitable for the new playful bobs. Cowlicks and frizzy permanents are known for their ways of escaping any control and are therefore quite some problem even for a bob, especially for a bob with fringes (bangs). Actually, those two hair problems are the only reasons not to opt for a bob style. Women with intensive permanents are quite unlikely to enjoy a bob (pyramid effect!).

The Best of all Worlds – The Bob

By and large the bob is easy to maintain. With the proper haircut the bob needs little help to keep the shape. The shorter and more precise the bob haircut, the more frequently it has to be trimmed by your hair stylist (a shorter bob every four weeks and a longer bob about every six to eight weeks).

Another important part about choosing the perfect bob hairstyle for you is to consider you face shape and what will complement it the best:

  • Bob Hairstyles for Square/Diamond Faces – If you have an angular face, you should focus on creating smoother lines with your bob hairstyle. In order to balance the shape of your face, the bob hairstyle should feature soft lines and razor-cut texturing. Be sure to avoid a bob hairstyle that has angular cuts that draw attention straight to the jaw line.
  • Bob Hairstyles for Round Faces – If you have a round face, a mid-layered bob hairstyle with long side bangs can help to balance out a rounder face.  You should also try and choose a bob hairstyle with less volume on the sides, because that can lend itself to the illusion of roundness.
  • Bob Hairstyles for Long Faces– With a longer face you should choose a shorter bob to prevent your face from looking longer than it is. You can also consider bangs or another way of incorporating texture into your bob hairstyle, which can help to shorten the length of your face.
  • Bob Hairstyles for Oval Faces – If you have an oval face, you can pull off almost any bob hairstyle, because your face is relatively proportional. Make sure that you consider your body shape when choosing your bob hairstyle because certain bob hairstyles might not work for your overall look.

Finding the right bob hairstyle to fit your look and your life style are essential when embarking upon a hair overhaul, or any trip to the salon for that matter. So make sure you know what works best for you.  Good luck picking the right bob hairstyle for you!
