A smooth bob: chic and timeless

The smooth bob is no plain Jane: on straight hair, it can be transcendent. Don't think strict and severe, think refined and flexible. There's a reason this style is regularly seen on the red carpet. Let's take a closer look at this timeless classic, recommended to it-girls by their hair stylists around the world.

A smooth bob is just the job!

Even though a bob is clean and refined, its look is not entirely 'artificial'. A confident cut, the bob is both free and defined: its shape brings a touch of femininity, delicately emphasising the neck and jaw-line.

A bob: the happy medium between short and long

For those who are after the fresh effect of a pixie but don't want to lose too much length, a bob is ideal. A smooth version, which suits blondes and brunettes equally, brings texture and volume to fine hair. And it's versatile: a stylist can transform a bob into waves or curls for even more glamour!

Smooth not flat

The complexity of a smooth bob is also where its appeal lies: maintaining volume while staying smooth. So, forget square roots and focus instead on a cubic cut! To give shape to this style, L'Oréal Professionnel stylist ambassador Denis Holbecq recommends applying a small amount of Full Volume Extra before blow-drying.
