3 Reasons To Love The Iconic Bob

We've recently seen the bob reimagined in all shapes and sizes; long, short, wavy and even with a fringe. Put simply, the bob is one of the most versatile cuts around - and here's why we love it!

1. It's a classic


The bob is an iconic cut of 2017, but it also manages to maintain a timeless quality. Because it's a style that never really goes out of style, there are so many sources of inspiration for the look – from vintage movie stars to Instagram trendsetters. The bottom line? The bob is a true classic that's here to stay.

2. It suits all face shapes


The classic bob is a universal cut that suits everyone. The reason is because the bob has the ability to be modified to flatter different face shapes. For instance, the best bob for a round face is a straight cut at collarbone or chin level. For a longer face, a lob (long bob) creates a lovely balance. If you're a fan of bobs with fringes – a bob can easily be incorporated into the look as it works with everything from blunt bangs to floaty fringes and even baby bangs.

Not sure which bob is right for you? See your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist for a full style consultation.

3. It works with curls


It's not just straight-haired ladies hopping on-board the bob bandwagon! A bob works brilliantly with natural waves and curls. The shorter you go with a curly bob, the more volume it creates. (Great news for those with a more square face shape.) The real selling point of a curly bob is it lends structure to unkempt curls while also embracing the natural texture. Meanwhile for hair that falls in the naturally wavy category, a layered bob works a treat. It's even got its own nickname – the 'wob'! To style this look, we recommend the L'Oréal Professionnel's Tecni.ART Dual Stylers Bouncy & Tender styling cream, for shiny, smooth and beautifully defined curls.
