Which bob is your favorite?

The bob haircut will go down in hairstyle history - and regular history - as an enduring classic, and it'll probably be around forever. There are so many different ways to wear it, from long to short to wavy to stick straight.

Two of the main options for a bob cut are layered and blunt, but the big question is, which one would you choose?


A layered bob can be shaped in all kinds of ways, from a full-on 'Rachel' to a few subtle curves. To get the perfect look for you, talk to your stylist about where you would like the hair to fall and what kind of shape you want. That way, they can tailor the cut to your specifications.

How to style it
Apply a wave enhancing spray while the hair is still damp, pin it up into a couple of buns, then let it dry naturally. This will leave you with plenty of natural, effortless movement.

Blunt cut

A sharp blunt bob is a style that always looks put together, so if you want something that can be left down for any and every occasion, this could be the cut you're looking for.

How to style it
Before blow-drying, apply a straightening cream throughout, then use the concentrator attachment to minimize frizz. Once dried, use a serum or hair oil to smooth your strands and keep flyaways to a minimum.
