Tips For a Bob Haircut

Tips: Picking the Right Bob For You

FYI, we're talking about hair because I really don't know if Bob A is better than Bob B (or even if there are that many Bobs around). But saying that, get the right bob and Bob will totally be after you. Because bobs are without a doubt one of the most coveted and universally flattering looks IF YOU GET THEM RIGHT. And that's where we come in. Here's our handy A-Z guide:

If you have fine, straight hair, a blunt bob will do wonders for you by creating the illusion of thickness.

If you have medium to thick straight hair, a graduated bob that's softly thinned at the ends will look best.

If you have wavy or loosely curled hair, a lob (a mid-neck or shoulder-length bob) with soft layers is easiest for you.

Keep reading . . .If you have a round face: a long, angled bob will give your face extra length and definition.

If you have a square face: a chin-length bob with bangs will disguise heaviness or hard angles.

If you have a heart-shaped face: a fringed, mid-neck bob will balance your face.

A classic chin-length bob with bangs looks great on oval faces.

Long faces get a little extra width with long bangs and a chin-grazing bob.

If you have medium or thick hair, thick bangs are best. For fine hair, stick to the side-swept look.
