The side-swept wavy bob with a fringe: soft yet strong!

How do you turn a classic, must-have hairstyle into something unique? By adding an extra something, like a fringe or side-swept sections! To get ahead of the bob trend, and keep the look's original appeal, we're welcoming the wavy bob with a side-swept fringe!

A soft, graphic bob

In the past few seasons, the 'wob' (wavy bob) has become a must-have hairstyle, and though you may not have heard of it, you've definitely seen it! Since the most daring fashionistas quickly get bored of styles they consider 'too mainstream', the solution is clear: spice up a wavy bob with a side part and a fringe. Balancing against the waves' softness, this graphic detail creates an asymmetrical movement, bringing the bounce back to your bob!

The fringed wob: a bob for all

Whatever the shape of your face or the colour of your hair, a side-swept wavy bob with a fringe will look great. Even if this short wavy cut is more easily worn on medium to thick hair, even the finest, straightest hair can get the look. Delphine Courteille, a hair stylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, recommends using texturising products from the Wild Stylers range, which will help create the volume needed for this gorgeous asymmetrical wavy bob.

Layers before waves

Don't let this chic, floaty bob's simple-looking curves trick you – it can't be created on a whim! The secret to its beauty lies in the precise and professional layering of your hair. This first step is key, whether your hair is naturally curly or straight.
