How to Rock an Asymmetrical Bob How to Rock an Asymmetrical Bob How to Rock an Asymmetrical Bob

One-length bobs will forever be a favorite hairstyle of ours, but when it comes to embracing an untraditional look, we’re all about the asymmetrical bob. When snipped correctly by a stylist, it’s the perfect modern haircut for a fresh new look. And it turns out there are quite a few different ways to style an angled asymmetrical bob haircut. So, whether you want to make an entrance with a pop of color or turn heads with super-sleek strands, we have the tips to help you rock a new signature asymmetrical bob haircut.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #1: Add Color

An asymmetrical bob in and of itself is quite the statement haircut, but when you pair it with a vivid hair color, you have yourself a super-on trend ‘do. Perfect for those who want to not only embrace a new shape but change up their whole look, try following up your cut with the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme in Light Auburn or Velvet Black, or take it to a whole new level with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Purple or Teal.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #2: Angle It

An asymmetrical bob is marked by being longer on one side. Instead of a geometric cut that harshly calls attention to the different lengths, opt for an angled haircut. This way your hair will be gradually cut in different lengths for a seamless transition between sides. So very chic of you!

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #3: Rock It with Bangs

While they have the scissors handy, ask your stylist to keep snipping, only this time along your forehead. Asymmetrical bobs look especially of the moment with heavy, straight-across bangs. And if you’ve looked at social media lately, then you’re well aware that there’s no better time to give fringe a go than right here in 2017.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #4: Tuck It Behind Your Ears

Sometimes when you have an angled asymmetrical bob, you might not be able to notice the difference in lengths all that much. That’s why you should consider tucking it behind your ears. The subtle pull-back will draw attention to the different lengths, allowing you to really show off your trendy haircut.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #5: Wear It with a Deep Side Part

While center-parted asymmetrical bobs can be quite stylish, we majorly fangirl over deeply parted ‘dos. When you add a deep side part to your asymmetrical bob, you’ll be able to draw more attention to the longer side of your hair by positioning it on the deeper side of your part. Let it cascade over your face for a truly posh appearance.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #6: Style It with Waves

Even when you love your hairstyle, you might want to switch it up a bit. While asymmetrical bobs look gorgeous when they’re straight, they also look beautiful wavy, too. Spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to damp hair and let your hair air dry for added texture and shape.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #7: Add Volume

Volume isn’t only reserved for girls with down-to-there hair. To add the appearance of volume to your asymmetrical bob, apply an egg-sized dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to damp hair, then let your hair air dry. No heat tools necessary for this one!

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #8: Accent It with Razored Ends

Asymmetrical bobs, despite being varying lengths, have a way of looking very clean cut. So, if you prefer an edgier ‘do, just ask your stylist to razor the ends after cutting your lengths.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #9: Make It Look Sleek and Shiny

This haircut is sure to shine all on its own thanks to how trendy it is, but why not make it literally shine, too? With a dime-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream smoothed through damp tresses, your sleek hair goals can be achieved.

Asymmetrical Bob Tip #10: Fake It

Not ready to make the cut? No worries! You can still rock this hairstyle by tucking your hair into your collar (sounds silly, but all the models are doing it) or flipping your ends up and pinning them on the underside of your cut.
