Do you prefer your bob with softly side waved bangs or a straight-up rocker fringe? To settle the score, we've put the two on-trend styles head-to-head.
Wavy Fringe Bob
The look: With a deep side part and sculpted vintage waves, this ladylike interpretation of the fringed bob strikes the perfect balance between modern and retro.
The style: The elegance in this hairstyle comes down to one thing: the brushed out pin-curls. What's particularly genius about this technique is that when the fringe is curled in this manner, it both flatters and softens the face.
What the editors say: The stars from Hollywood's Golden Age were onto something! The look may be a throwback to yesteryear, but what brings it stylishly into the present day is the bob length. Overall, the look is sultry, feminine and oh-so-chic.
Bob With Bangs
The look: Who says a bob style can't have attitude! As seen on the runway at the House of Holland show at London Fashion Week 2017/17, a bob with a short, straight and feathered fringe is the epitome of grungy-cool.
The style: The secret in this style all comes down to embracing natural texture. Tousling both the lengths and piecey bangs are key to recreating this edgy style.
What the editors say: This hard core look rubbishes any stereotypes about bobs being old-fashioned and mumsy. With just the right cut and texture (and a hint of attitude!) this hairstyle goes to show how effortlessly cool a bob can be.
