If you've had a bob for a while and you don't want to grow it or get a pixie, you can switch things up with one of the simple tweaks below. With bob cuts set to remain a prominent hairstyle trend this season (and next, and probably the one after that, too) updating your existing look is an easy way to stay ahead of the curve!
1. Cut it shorter
If you have a lob or just a long-ish bob, going just a little shorter will create the illusion of a brand new cut without any drastic loss of length. You'll also get that fresh haircut feeling when running your hands though shorter, healthier ends, too!
Keep your hair frizz-free by applying Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream before blowdrying.
2. Sweep it back
For a fresh summertime look, sweep your bob back off your face. This style pairs really well with natural makeup and does a great job of showcasing your favorite sunglasses!
Use a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel to smooth the hair back. Start with a dime-sized amount and add more as needed to avoid overloading your locks.
3. Get bangs
When you love the length of your hair, but want the overall style to look different, try getting bangs. Whether blunt, feathered, wispy or side-swept, the right fringe will transform your bob cut!
Rake your bangs into place with a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty on your fingertips for lasting, flexible hold.
4. Embrace air drying
If you usually blow-dry your hair, try air drying it once in a while to change the texture. Don't worry if your hair can be a little unruly, you can still use a curling or flat iron once it's dry for any finishing touches. The main idea is simply to create natural-looking movement.
Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse into damp hair, tuck it behind your ears, and let it air dry for barely there waves.
5. Change your part
Just like getting bangs, changing the location of your part changes the way your hair frames your features, creating the illusion of a brand new look!
To keep flyaways at bay and your part defined, mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.
