Forget the cliché. The bob is so much more than a simple, 'severe' haircut. Just a few waves soften this style, awarding it the title of 'must-have' hairstyle!
The bob is making waves
When we hear the word 'bob', it's easy to think of something rigid, even severe. Of course in certain cases that's true, but a bob cut can be given unexpected femininity and softness. This hidden facet can be revealed in just a few waves and the hair world agrees.
A VIP bob where everyone's on the list
Although this style works well with all face shapes and hair colours, thanks to its ability to soften bone structure it particularly suits square and rectangular-shaped faces. Red carpets have seen a wave – almost literally – of 'faux bobs' in recent seasons. Those who aren't ready to bob but love the look have been camouflaging their long locks to create a false wavy bob effect – all thanks to their hair stylists, of course!
The oh-so-simple bob
The difficult aspect of this style lies in achieving supple waves. For beautiful waves that look like you're just back from the beach, Denis Holbecq, an ambassador-stylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, recommends scrunching the texturising product Beach Waves into your hair, then leaving it to dry naturally instead of using a curling iron.
