THE NEXT BIG HAIR TREND
The hair gods have called and they’re asking you to let down your hair and make the chop.
The time for the shaggy bob has come, and it’s got layers and waves galore.
While it’s definitely an act of #bravery to don a shorter look, the beauty of this romantic-style bob is its versatility and the fact that it suits every hair type.
Hence why It-girls from Paris to New York are trading in their long locks for more movement and less refinery.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK
NYC hair stylist Devin Toth says when it comes to achieving that effortless, wind-tousled wave, it’s all in the cut.
Layers, a short length and some serious bangs will add volume and texture that is easy to work with. To keep it lasting all day, add a touch of mousse or hairspray and go.
From there you have endless options to consider. Side swept or bold curtain bangs? Long or short layers? Any good hairdresser will be able to model this style to suit your hair type and texture. We suggest collecting some inspo on your phone to get a better idea of what might suit your hair and face shape.
For those blessed with curls, we say embrace ‘em.
Thin, straight hair will suit light bangs and a subtle wave (easily achieved with a curling iron, or braided overnight).
Add subtle highlights to your hair to give your bob a more ‘undone’ look, the bonus is this will also up the volume and texture levels.
And for when hair is misbehaving, accessories are your saviour:
With the major return of butterfly clips, sleek pins and bold hair bands, you’re bound to find some that will resolve any bad hair day.
