The bob has always been a red-carpet favourite, and this year it's back with a modern twist – the cropped bob!
Why we love it
The cropped bob is the no holds barred version of the traditional bob, and we love its bold and unapologetic style!
The cropped bob takes inspiration from the roaring 1920s, and can be both blunt and androgynous, depending on how you style it. It usually features a defined sculpted fringe and face framing lengths - not for the faint of heart! This style can also be described as a 'pageboy bob' with the ends of your hair curved inward towards your head, rather than straight or outwards. Because this cut is a show-stopper in itself, you don't need to overthink the styling here. We like refreshing the texture and body of the cropped bob with a little L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Morning After Dust when it needs it. Incorporate a little at the roots and tousle it through with your fingers tips.
What our stylists say
There's nothing basic about the cropped bob – so it takes a confident person to pull it off! It looks best on heart or oval shaped faces, and creates quite a dramatic silhouette. If you want to ease into this style, ask your professional stylist to layer the cut softly around your face and fringe, to avoid the typical 'boxy bob' look.
