The bob with a fringe: the illusion of length

A fringe makes a bob immediately look longer, even mid-length. Is it an optical illusion or a styling effect? Either way, this cut is one of the best there is. But take care, it should only be tried with naturally thick hair (or expert layering) to avoid things falling flat...

A bob? Do it! But make it thick, and with a fringe

To emphasise your eyes and your posture, there's nothing better than a fringed shoulder-length bob. Sitting elegantly just above your eyes, the fringe is feminine and modern, adding instant glamour to your silhouette. Thick or well-layered hair gives it even more depth.

A new-age baby-doll fringed bob

Our L'Oréal Professionnel expert, Denis Holbecq, loves the look, calling it 'a wild yet ultra-feminine style'. He explains that it 'complements every face shape. For medium-to-thick hair, brown and copper shades will accentuate density.' This baby-doll look revisits the popular sixties style, but with an added touch of 21st century minimalism.

A fringed bob works with a wet look or simply tousled

Backstage at fashion shows, you'll find that hair stylists love turning this style into a wet look. Thanks to its abundance of volume, it's the perfect style – no falling flat or losing its panache! Being covered in gel and wax doesn't stop it gracefully holding on to its identity. But for everyday, we prefer it au naturel, sexily tousled, whatever you feel like!
