Year over year hair trends come and go but some styles become timeless and worth revisiting every season. The bob is a classic and easy go-to that looks great in every hair length and hair texture. Since there are so many ways to wear the style, it can really frame and accentuate your face no matter the shape—oval, round, diamond and everything in between. It’s especially easy for the winter because it lays well and looks chic under different hat types, it can go from poofy to sleek with a great hair serum, and it’s an effortless look that can be done with little or no heat. Below, check out five bob styles we love to turn to when the temperatures start to dip.
Blunt Cut Bob (With Bangs)
A blunt cut bob is a simple way to add some pizzazz to your look. It has an edgy factor to it that makes the wearer look like a cool girl with very little effort. It’s easy to style and it’s unfazed by any hat or other head covering you throw over it. Want to take your blunt cut bob up a notch? Just add a chic blunt cut bang!
The classic bob has never looked better than it does with a little texture. If you already have wavy, curly or coily hair, getting this ‘do is as simple as a heading to the salon for a cut (or if you think you can hack it—no pun intended—a DIY snip), then going into the world being great. Just be prepared to have all eyes on your mane through the entire season.
The long bob is a favorite amongst people with thicker hair because it thins out really thick, poofy hair and lets the style shine. (If you have really thin hair a long bob can look flat and lifeless. Try a short stacked bob instead to give your hair volume) A long bob in a striking color is a head-turner. Curl it, add some waves, or wear it straight to really frame the face. Just remember to grab your L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray to protect your tresses from heat damage and cut down on blow dry time, and L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray Leave-In if you plan on cozying up to your flatiron.
Beach Wave Bob
Getting to the beach was a feat for many of us last year, and the closest thing we came to waves was through our hair. At least it was pretty! Repeat the pattern (literally) this winter with a ‘do that marries this ulta popular style with a tried-and-true bob. Long or short, you’ll have that just-came-back-from-vacay vibe all winter long, even if the closest thing you come to a vacation is a picnic in your own living room.
