Absolutely Stunning Bob Hairstyles

The bob has long been one of the most popular hairstyles around, largely thanks to the fact that it complements most face shapes and because it is such a versatile and easy to manage style.

The bob offers feminine length and shape, while the hair is still short enough for almost effortless styling time needed. You’ll also find that you use significantly less maintenance and products (shampoo, conditioner, treatment etc.) on a bob when compared to long hair. Even your monthly or bi-monthly visits to the salon to get your hair colored or highlighted should be considerably cheaper.

This model’s hair is cut into a superbly calculated short, one length bob. The long and full bangs connect to the sides in perfectly swift angles, giving the hairstyle an ultra modern, almost androgynous look.

This is a very interesting bob where the stylist elected to cut the sides marginally shorter than the back. This effect has been exaggerated by blow drying the sides into upward angled waves. The neutral dark brown base color displays the cut and style perfectly while also complementing the model’s pale skin.
