Are You Looking For A Bob Haircut?
Bob is such a vanilla sounding name for a hairstyle that is much more delicious. Bob hairstyles have been around since the days when our grandmothers were in their girlhoods. Many fashion, movie and television star icons have worn bob haircuts since then. All the way from the original “It” girl Clara Bow, the movie maven from back in the 1920′s, until contemporary stars Drew Barrymore, Naomi Watts, Katie Holmes and Gwyneth Paltrow, the bob hairstyle has never really lost its popularity nor gone completely out of fashion.
If you are thinking of trying a brand-new new style, it may be time for you to consider having one of the many kinds of bob haircuts that are available. They are some of the most tried-and-true styles around. There are conservative bob hairstyles and wilder, choppier bob haircuts. There are blunt one-length bob haircuts and layered bob hairstyles. There are as many different forms of the bob haircut as there are face shapes and length preferences, and that doesn’t even take into consideration color choices.
Whether you like straight hair or wavy hair, a bob haircut would be a great choice for you. Most bobs can be either one depending upon your whim. A bob hairstyle is sort of the superhero of all hairstyles. Maybe you will wear it mild-mannered and straight to the office by day and then make it go crazy and curly for a night out on the town.
Face Shape Tips
Every face shape has a bob hairstyle waiting to frame it. Whatever facial feature it is that you would like to accent or maybe even those you may wish to camouflage can all be accommodated by the right bob haircut. But how do you know what is the right bob hairstyle for you?
If your face shape is round, a choppy, slightly longer bob haircut will work best for you. You should not wear bangs that are cut straight across, nor wear it curly or wavy. If you have a square-shaped face, try bangs that sweep to the side with longer hair on the sides and front cut into smooth, soft lines rather than a blunt-cut bob with heavier bangs that will accent your more square features. If your face is a heart shape, don’t cut your bangs straight across, it will make the top part of your head look out of proportion. Diamond shapes, however, should wear straight-across bangs because they make your face look only half as long and if you also need to fill out the width of your face, have the bob cut just to your chin length and wear it wavy. If your face is oblong, your bob should be cut shorter than chin-length because it will accent the side-to-side aspect rather than the up-and-down aspect of your face. If you are lucky enough to have an oval-shaped face, you really are fortunate. Any style of bob haircut that you like will look fabulous on you!
Because a bob haircut is so versatile, it is perfect for any texture or thickness of hair. A well-cut bob hairstyle can make the thinnest, finest hair appear lusher and thicker and the most unruly, thickest hair look more manageable and controlled. It all depends upon what you want from your bob. Your hair will also usually fall into the bob hairstyle into which it was cut nearly by itself! A really good bob haircut makes your hairstyling job at home much less time-consuming.
Even though originally you had your hair cut into a particular shape bob hairstyle, you can still do so many different things with it for your own unique look. Try waving it, curling it, putting several kinds of hair products into it and just playfully experimenting with it to see what your look could turn out to be. Maybe it will be a lot of different looks. It’s all up to you and your creativity. It could be classy or sassy, old style or new wave. You might want to look through the style books and magazines at your hairdressers just to see what is new and the different lengths and cuts of bob hairstyles that are available. Your hairdresser is also a great asset when choosing the style of bob haircut that you should have. Any stylist who has been in the business for any length of time at all has done many bob haircuts, so ask for advice. The final consultant as far as your bob hairstyle is concerned is you.
