Find out which bob is best for your face shape!

There are some hairstyles that look great on everybody and the bob is one of them. The reason a bob cut flatters every face shape, however, is because there are so many different bob haircuts to choose from. So, which one is right for you?

Square faces

A bob with blended layers will soften hard lines, as will a subtly tousled texture. To flatter a wide forehead, team your bob with some side-swept, wispy bangs.

Styling tip

Spritz damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in twisted sections to create an effortless, wavy finish.

Heart-shaped faces

To help balance an especially narrow or pointed chin, opt for a straight, blunt cut bob. The sharp lines will create the illusion of a wider jaw.

Styling tip

Mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and banish flyaways.

Round faces

To elongate a round face shape, a slightly longer bob that falls below the chin is a great option. Loose waves and other subtle textures will create a gorgeous bohemian look, but try to avoid too much weight on the sides as this will make the face appear rounder.

Styling tip

Get a piecey finish by applying a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to the ends.

Oval faces

In general, oval face shapes can wear any hairstyle imaginable. This is also the case with bobs, so go ahead and try any look you want, whether textured, sleek, curly, middle parted, side-swept... you could try them all!

Styling tip

For a flyaway-free blowout, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream to damp hair before drying.
