If you’re looking to embrace a trendy short hairstyle, we’ve got the perfect hairstyle for you. Despite Gen Z’s adoration for middle part hairstyles, we still believe that side parts can be chic! A prime example? A side part bob. As you can probably imagine, this hairstyle features cropped, side-swept strands that beautifully frame the face. If you’re looking to sport the style, read on to learn ten different ways you can create it.
Ready to give a side part bob a go? Here are ten ways to wear the look.
An angled cut can add a unique touch to the side part bob and create a bit of dimension in the hair. Have your stylist cut your hair in an angled fashion so that it’s slightly longer toward the front.
If you love sporting a pin straight, sleek style, this is the look for you. Straight strands paired with a side bob creates an edgy look that’s both modern and classic. As always, it’s important to protect your hair when you’re heat styling, so spray the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Pre-Iron Spray Leave-In on your strands before using your blow-dryer and flatiron.
Braided bobs are such a fun style to get creative with because you can change up the style of braids that you create to pair with your bob. Adding a side part to an already eye-catching style makes it all the more dynamic.
This style is all about creating texture. A side part bob with lots of layers is the perfect way to add some definition to your mane. This is a particularly flattering cut if you have wavy or straight hair but want some extra movement.
Loose, bouncy waves are a foolproof style for when you want some volume and body in your hair. Add a romantic touch to your side part bob by pairing it with beachy waves. To bump up the definition of your curls, apply a bit of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp hair.
Love a bold look? Give a blunt bob with a side part a try. Ask your stylist to cut your ends in a blunt, sharp shape that will draw extra attention to your jawline. This style is perfect for framing the face, too.
Take your side part bob to the next level with an extra deep side part. This is a great option for if you have thin or fine hair that tends to fall flat, as it’ll create a bit of extra volume at your roots. The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Air Volume Dry Shampoo also lets you add volume to your hair by cleansing oil that weighs down your mane.
Whether you prefer curtain bangs or wispy bangs, there are so many flattering options that will go with your bob. To really embrace the side part style, consider asking your stylist for some side-swept bangs to complete your look.
An asymmetrical bob, which is longer on one side and shorter on the other, is a trendy look that draws attention to the face without being too overpowering. Pairing this cut with a side part plays up the asymmetry even more. Plus, it can be worn with a variety of different hair textures making it incredibly versatile.
If you have curly hair and want to try a shorter ‘do, a curly side part bob may be right up your alley. Paired with your curly, bouncy texture, this bob hairstyle gives off fun vibes. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to clean, towel-dried hair. Let curls air dry or blow-dry with a diffuser.
